It’s not uncommon for consumers to add protective coatings or films to try and keep vehicles looking newer longer and protect against chips, scratches, stains, and wear from the elements. But there are a few considerations that must be factored in before adding these aftermarket coatings to your highly technical vehicle.

Mike and Danny talk through making sure you protect your investment by adding an endorsement for your aftermarket wrap or film to your insurance policy. You also want to make sure that sensors and cameras that are in your vehicle’s safety systems aren’t covered and affected.

These sensors might be impacted by things as minimal as license plate brackets, stickers, foils, or stone chip guards in the detection range of the sensors and cameras. Automaker repair procedures and even the owner’s manual can help guide where and when it is ok to apply these aftermarket solutions.
