Well, I had something similar to the Scotch stuff called "ClearArmor" installed about a month ago which armors every conceivable scratchable surface really, the front - of course - the front of mirrors, door scallops, backs of doors, botton door sills, bottom filler hatch, top of rear bumper - can't see it unless looking for it.

Downside: the price, and it takes a month to cure.

Upside: I was driving at 75mph when a dump truck hit a bump sending dirt, and pebble crap onto the road right in front of me - not a scratch. And I found myself being more concerned with my windsheild frankly.
