PPF Rockers and in front of rear wheels on a 2ss.

Camaro6,
I have a non 1le car coming. Do I need to have the area in front of the rear tires covered or the rockers? I know the 1le tires are wider and cause more issues just wondering if it's the same for a non-1le car.

Thanks!
Peter

I'm going through the same decisions...I asked in another thread (below, posts 20 - 27). FWIW, I'll be installing rock guards and think I've decided on getting PPF on the areas shaded in red in post 20 (as well as putting on the front fenders/hood/bumper).

2020 2SS (NON-1LE) and this is the area I had PPF'd, I am VERY happy with the results... 5,000 miles and not a single stone chip...

To the OP yes, i had a non 1LE and 1LEs and the same issue, the 2018 2ss non-1LE i had was black and still had rock chips even above the rocker line in front of the fuel door.


I used clear vinyl wrap thinking it was ppf when i ordered it on amazon and it was more tricky but doable. I used knifeless tape to make the shape for tje desired area and cut easily. There are 2 bubbles i need to pop, lol

Yes you will want PPF on the spats (area in front of the rear tires).

I recommend PPF on all forward facing surfaces up to the limit of your budget:
nose, spats, hood, rockers up to the body line on the doors, mirrors, etc... (like 2SS Capt's post above)

$15 universal mud flap on the front will solve all these problems. You can trade off a little style for superior protection. ZL1 add on's are a good product but as I've told them they don't extend down far enough.
