Put me down as a possible 2 layer depending on the answer to my question above on how long it will last in an unclimate controlled garaged car. Thanks.
I asked them about longevity and they couldn't give me a specific answer. They said that out of sunlight and in a climate controlled environment is the best possible circumstance but they couldn't quote a specific length of time.

I'm in for a two layer for my '05. Thanks.

Mike
Great! Got you on the list Mike!

I would like to get a two layer on an Elise if it works out. How are they working scheduling? We will arrive at the hotel late Wednesday.
Thanks.
Yes, they can definitely do the Lotus as well. You're on the list too!

Currently they are planning on being set up on Wednesday, 8/23 to do as many cars as they can and possibly on Thursday AM before any driving starts. They're going to touch base with me again today to hammer out the details.

Currently signed-up:

GTMD (4 layer)
Jim (Anya) (2 cars, both 4 layers)
68Rcodeman (4 layer)
ChipBeck (4 layer)
Blue Moose (4 layer)
Naford (4 layer)
KennethClay (2 layer)
TACHY (4 layer)
GKW05GT (2 layer)
TO AWSUM (2 layer - tentative)
Mike Mosing (2 layer)
Apollo (2 layer for Lotus Elise)

I might be interested. How long does it last before you see a lot of distortion or peeling? I only drive about 1000 miles per year and almost no track use. I'm concerned about sand blasting from the dry desert UTAH roads during the rally like DBK mentioned.

Great question. I have no personal experience with the product but others say it isn't a permanent solution. Maybe DBK or someone else can answer that.

Hey All!

I just got off the phone with Andrew at Pro-Tint out of North Carolina. I was inquiring about windshield tear-offs for both the road and track day at the Rally. Although I don't have any personal experience with their product, he indicated that he's done a number of 2017 Ford GTs and was recently in Michigan installing them. He said that they are a great option for both road and tack events and can install them with whatever number of layers you need (typical is 4). I asked him about clarity/distortion as well as any issues with polarized sunglasses and he said that he has never heard of any complaints--of course I always take that with a grain of salt. Another benefit is that once your done with them, they tear off easily without any residue.

He's interested in coming to the first day of the Rally, August 23rd, to install them for us assuming we can get 6 or more GTs lined up for the install and he could probably swing a break in price if we were to get more than 6 GTs signed up. Usual cost without any price break is $100/layer so for a 4 layer install would be $400 (includes product and install).

I can tell you that I'm very interested in this option since I won't have the opportunity to have my ClearPlex installed before the Rally and even if I did, the tear-off functionality for a track day is attractive.

Is anyone else interested? If you are, let me know on this thread and I can see if I can make something happen! :wink

As a headsup for your scheduling, I won't be arriving until about 3 pm or later 23 Aug after driving about 10-11 hours from SD. Thanks.

Spoke to Pro-Tint today and they are planning on being at the hotel on Wednesday, 8/23 to install our tear-offs. They are also working on a slight group discount for us (thanks Pro-Tint!). More details to come on the exact time/location, etc. over the next couple of weeks.

Anybody else want in on this group buy to protect your windshield?

Hi Seth,
Unfortunately I do not think Monica and I will be able to get there early enough Wednesday for the install on the Elise. We are stopping by UMC to drop off our car on the way there. I appreciate your efforts.

Are they able to do any other cars, like a Lotus Elise for example?

Are you talking old GTs or new ones? I've got window skin on for years.

They will do any car.

Also not sure if the same applies to the 05/06 cars but we had to pull the wiper for the install on the '17's. If so, someone should take a small gear puller or wiper puller. On the '17's the wiper's wouldn't budge without it.
