Hi Everyone

That sounds real good, but not what you are thinking..........lol


Well it's travelling time again and there have been a few reports through already that many of the outback track are closing in quite a bit with large bushes on the tracks, and giving your pride and joy a real bush look "pin striping" effect.

Last year after our bush trip, I like many remote travellers on here, I went to buy more Auto Skin and hit a brick wall. Every internet contact would either not answer their phone, or were not in business any more. Well after countless phone calls, I was able to track down a reliable supplier, that was more than helpful, and supplies me with more protection.

I gave them a phone call the other day, and yes they are still in business and are still promoting their great product..."Protectit"

If you open my Blog below, you will be able to get all their contact phone numbers and a little information about their great product.

And to answer your question, Yes I do use protection and it will be applied in just over three weeks....

Protect Your Investment with Protectit

See you out in the Bush with your protection on.



Cheers

Hi Stephen,

Protection no way!!!

Using protection only decreases the resale value of your vehicle.

Without the proof, it is only your word the the buyer has to go by, to let them know how your vehicle is capable.

Check out these beauties from a few weeks ago.




Ah such memories of times past....

Hopefully I'll get a few more soon to add to the collection :-)

Cheers
Alan

Ouch Al, they look like some serious bushes or small tree that you encountered.

I thought that you would have used protection and you could sell your near new vehicles as a one owner, never been bush Tojo.....lol

Looks like another interesting trip. I bet Mick was using his protection...........lol



Take care.




Cheers

Hi Peter

The gear is real good for very big and hard hitting branches. Even last year, I had a rather big encounter with a small mulga tree with branches around an inch thick. I was stuck in soft sand and the only way out was with the small tree/very large bush to hit the side of my car at speed and I was expecting the Autoskin to be ripped from the car.

To my surprise when I was free, I got out expecting the worst, only to find a small scratch in the Autoskin that did not damage my paintwork. I know for sure that if I was not using it, there would have been serious damage to my paintwork.


Cheers



Stephen

Peter,

I should has also stated that if Al used it on the side of his vehicle, from the images above, there would have been no marks on the paintwork at all.

Hi Peter again.

In a couple of words....dead easy.


I thoroughly wet the car in sections and start at one edge and it peels off in large sheets, just like sheets of glad wrap.

From past use, I have learnt that the first coat is the most important coat and I find that it is better to make it a thick coat and not thin. I then build the coats up after that and in most cases, in the cooler weather that I use it, I can re coat in under an hour.

As my vehicle is Black, the finish give the colour a dull finish, but it is not on there for the looks. When it is dry and cured...I usually apply it around 2 weeks before heading off, you can drag your finger nails along the side of the car and not mark the Autoskin at all, in fact if feels like a rubbery, plastic feel on the side of the car. I do not use it on the snorkel, and that has some very big buts and scrapes to show everyone that the vehicle has been in some true bush locations.



Cheers
