I know right? I like the paint job on my Ferrari F430 GT and would hate to see it scuffed due to racing. I little protection would help a lot.

just buy the Tamiya clearcoat spray. I use custom decals and then spray that on top. The decals are protected from damage.

I prefer the sticker type as I can just peel it off when I think it's starting to look messed up. Spraying clear coat just seems too troublesome.

By doing the hold test of a bill cooney painted body & PN's decals,i doesn't feel much difference.will check it on the scale

My Mosler with skins and stock wing weighs 44.3 Grams. I didn't weigh it before the skins, I should have.

well after a full day of abuse with the new skin.I must say as you can see in the pics that still holds & was banged up head on with newbs.Still looks brand new!Sorry newbs,lol.As for weight.I have a painted yellow& checkered f430 as seen in pics i was using,now am using the new f430 + skin.Heres the difference.
Yellow F430 MR03=175grams without transponder
PN Skin F430 MR03=176.7grams without transponder
Not much difference in weight so i can say i am liking the skins very much.so durable.no rips or scratches.MHS has all the skins that are out.few guys have them already & are liking them.Easy to put on too.not hard.

Same day of abuse I was in and it held up really well.
Just spray some motor cleaner on a rag & wipe away all battle scares!
I think it is a hit at the shop because it was sold once they saw how well it did look plus now weight is specified.
