NSX Protection

Read that the NSX is individually painted and it takes more than 20 hours just to paint one. Any scratches on that paint from general use is going to be a pain to fix so I'm just wondering if anyone is going to be adding some kind of paint protection to their NSX.

Going to get paint protection film applied once taking delivery. And that will go a long way in ensuring the paint says mint for a very, very long time. Especially with the advancements made in PPF.

Thinking of those clear bras or just wrapping the whole car along with a car cover to keep the sun off.

Indeed. That will go a long way in preventing (or prolonging) those UV rays from doing damage.

Great for someone like myself that plans to daily one of these and put it through its paces.

XPEL seems to be thrown around a lot. Anyone have any experience with their clear bra?

I haven't. But I have also heard about them. Doubt there's much to know about it or much that we need to concern ourselves with, either way with it we're far better off than having paint exposed.

I'd be more concerned with chips in the paint, but I am hoping Honda has done due diligence so that the paint will not fade.

The protection is for chips and scratches. fading can be reduced with a car cover but I don't trust people not to touch or open their door too wide. Odd rock from the highway could scratch the paint too.

Might be something they'll do to the paint but being exposed to the elements over an extended period of time its bound to go through something. Just have to hold up our end and make sure it says looking good.

ceramic coating, graphene coating and ppf. I wonder what protection have you put on? If you put on ppf then you can top it off with ceramic coating to protect the ppf from waterspots and stays glossy.

If your car is a daily, it definitely needs to be coated/ppf
