Vinyl Gravel Guard Alternative to Diamondplate - Thoughts?

Postby Andrew Herrick » Mon Oct 03, 2016 10:24 pm

So I discovered a quick n' dirty alternative to diamond treadplate for fenders or a rock shield. I haven't used it, but I wonder if anyone has, and if so, what's the verdict. It's a peel n' stick vinyl gravel guard. Can be bought per linear foot or by the roll. It often seems to be used to protect the fenders or the lower front siding.

Its also called Racers Tape Surface Guard Tape. Its been around for a while. Its just sold under different names. Some newer cars have it from the factory. From what I have seen it holds up pretty good.

Here is one link of many if you do a google by that name.

Sticking that black stuff on my woodie would totally destroy the look, but after 12 years and 15,000 miles on the road, the only gravel damage I have is to the bent lamination African mahogany wrap-around trim on the corners, where front meets sidewalls, mostly to the driver's side. The skin, where I used 6oz fiberglass and epoxy resin is still perfect.
My solution is to fiberglass the trim in that area when I finish remodeling the house. Seeing as that is a never-ending project, I suspect it will never bi repaired.
In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away.

That silver racer tape on the Jeggs site looks a lot like duct tape!
