because the wear is gonna happen on a spoiler on the edges and corners - hard to wrap , easy to throw something over them...to do this right a xpel installer should take it off and wrap the whole thing professionally - some have done that...but just covering top leaves edges exposed...I don't use the cover every time, I keep the minimal marring from my belly or cotton shirt in check with the full spoiler done in Opti coat 2.0....per the arrow pic in my thread.Glen,
Your DIY ideas using Xpel were my inspiration for the comment. Why not put semi-permanent protection like Xpel or Optima on the affected area instead of carrying a blanket, towel, or GM accessory to drape over the hatch every time you use it? Wouldn't do that to protect sill plates, right?
I received it as a gift and installed it in RedHot. It has two coated bendable metal fingers that go under the rear carpeting and secures it. Once you install it you don't need to fuss with those again. It rolls up and secures with Velcro straps, out of the way of the sub-woofer. I like it and use it when I put in or remove my golf clubs so there is zero concern about scratching any part of the car. Other than when I use it for that it is out of the way and doesn't really take up hardly any trunk space. So bottom line, if you put bulky things into your trunk with some frequency I would recommend it.Added a new spoiler and it does need protection...who's got the protector that pulls over the spoiler area? Does it store nicely? how? rollup. etc...disc is pretty basic...would you buy it again?
But of course Here ya go with complements of RedHot. The protector is a nice thickness so as to protect from any bumps and very soft material on the back side that rests across your spoiler and car body. Very easy to use as noted in my post #10 earlier.Could you take some pictures of it deployed and stored?
