I just got a quote for $450 today from a local recommended tint shop to install 3M paint protection on the painted front bumper and the painted strips below the headlight lenses on my 2015 Denali HD. Is this price reasonable?

Also, should I have 3M installed on the front hood edge as well?

3,000 miles on the new truck and already have at least 3 stone chips on the bumper and one stone chip on the windshield.

Question is....how hard is it really to put this on, because you can find these kits for about 250 -280 bucks online.

Have you ever considered using a spray on gloss clear rubberized coating? Eastwood has developed a product they call Elastiwrap which is a spray on coating that comes in 100s of colors as well as clear. It can be easily removed buy simply peeling it off. This product is similar to Plasti-dip but in my experience with both this is a superior product. Here is a youtube video using it as a paint bra on a hood. You can buy a spray can for about $13 so even if you have to respray it every year you are still money ahead.

BTW, I use this gloss clear on my Silverado headlights, it acts as a UV protectant for the clear plastic lens and keeps them from turning cloudy. If it gets damaged I just peel it off and respray them.
