Excellent paint protection film company referral

Just a quick note...if anyone is looking for a great paint protection/film guy in Central/NoVA you should check out Richmond Roadblock...He uses Haartz DefenZall 8 mil film which has some pretty good reviews...he chose them because he tested Haartz vs 3M and a few others on a car over the course of a couple of years and it simply out-performed the rest....great guy, responsive and top quality work. Joe DeRoche @ 804-314-4234...tell him Daryl sent you.

I had my rear panels in front of wheel wells done along with a custom piece in front of that on the door where it starts to flare out. He also did my side view mirrors. I am considering having him come back to do my front bumper and first few inches of the hood. Only reason I didn't jump on it out of the gate with him was because it's a 3 year lease and not certain that regular rock chips on the front would effect turn in. Good luck!

I'll throw in another recommendation for Skip Vachon at Performance Film Technologies in NoVA. He did the fender and side skirt kit for my X5 M-sport in about an hour, on a Saturday, at my house, and guarantees his work for the life of the car.
