Front End Masks
Originally started in Germany, where Porsche
covered the front of each car as it came off the production line prior to a
shake-down run around their famous test track, masks have long been considered a
necessity for any car owner wanting to protect the area of the car that takes
the most abuse on the road - the front end, especially the leading edge of
the hood and any painted areas around the grille.
Quality features you'll find in every
- Protective air intake screens are an
integral part of the mask, not separate, and they are sewn into the outside of
the mask so there are no loose pieces of material inside to abrade the paint
- Covered aluminum tabs allow adjustment
at the fender wells as vinyl expands and contracts due to temperature. Take a
look at a non-adjustable mask being driven down the road and you'll see why
this is an important feature.
- Reinforced air foils prevent flapping
and lift. Very few patterns don't require this feature; there is just too
much air whipping around the front of your vehicle as it goes down the road,
like cross-winds and back drafts from passing semi trucks.
- We use a micro-perforated finish on our
vinyl. It allows the mask to "breathe" and permits moisture vapor to
evaporate when the vehicle is driven in wet weather. Still, if a mask becomes
wet and is going to be left sitting in the sun, we recommend it be removed to
allow the backing to dry properly.
- Our heavy-gauge leather grain vinyl has a
soft, protective backing. We use white non-woven fleece so you can easily
see when it's time to clean the back-side of the mask.
- Seams are overlapped and finished with
a strong, durable top stitch. Edges are covered with soft, non-abrasive
