    I used to use 3-M Helicopter tape to protect the front end of my cars. Now The only problem was the sheets were not very wide.
    Now I see that cars have the front end taped all in one piece.
    I saw a company called Armourcoat who makes complete tape kits for Ferraris. I think I heard a dealer say they use a company called Invisiguard or something like that. Does anyone know the other companies making a good die cut tape set for Ferraris?

    There are plenty of companies that offer this service - e.g., armourfend, autobahnd, etc. They all use the same 3M film - the difference is in the proprietary patterns they use (ever try applying a 2 dimensional sticker to a 3 dimensional surface?). The actual application is by a franchisee, or by an underpaid employee of the franchisee. :)

    Shop around - e.g., check out which brand your local F shop uses. I have the Autobahnd on my 355, and I love it, though I wish it did cover more leading edges.

    vty,

    Can you easily take this stuff off, reapplying later?
    I would want it for 150 mile road trips to track events, tracking, then back home.

    Yes, you can easily take it off, but no, you can't reapply the same piece later.
