    Hello, any and all suggestions for dent and scratch protection wanted with pictures if possible or links.
    I know it is not most fashionable but I'm looking for a option to paint to match and sick and tired of dents and scratches from parking lot trolls.

    I think those look soooo tacky. The alternative that I use is to park as far away from the morons as possible. No guarantees but it’s worked so far.

    I agree but it always seems to happen. Prep work already done.

    Darn I try this everywhere possible, but sure enough, the rest of the parking lot could be empty and some azzhat will have parked right beside me.

    I am looking at DEI and zetaproducts. Bump for anyone that has done this or I am thinking using stainless steel and painting it myself to match.

    I always park in a way where I gauge the arc of the doors beside me so they’ll hit my floorboards which are wider than the body panels. This doesn’t work for higher vehicles like tall SUVs and other trucks so I don’t park beside them. Or if there is any staggered parking where the arc will hit my fender flares, I’ll avoid.

    I commonly go out of my way to park in end spots and away from people but we all know this isn’t always possible. I don’t really want to ruin the clean look of our doors with guards. And sometimes that’s not the contact point as I said with varying heights of the other vehicle so their purpose is defeated.
