Rundown: Form Fit Hood Protectors

Form Fit Hood Protectors are one of our newest products in the bug deflector/hood protector category, and they are an exceptional product worth looking at. 
Form Fit Hood Protector installed on 2015 Ford F-150 from Auto Truck Depot
These hood protectors are made right here in Canada, and are custom-designed specifically for every vehicle application to ensure a perfect fit. Each hood protector is contoured and shaped to match the vehicle's body lines exactly with the use of 3D print technology.

They serve several purposes, all of which involve protecting your vehicle from damage. They provide as barrier between your paint and the rocks and other road debris that are always kicked up. It will also help protect your windshield, directing those rocks up and away. Finally, they take the hits from a lot of bugs, keeping them off your vehicle, where they are much harder to clean. 
We have had the opportunity to install this new product on a series of brand new dealership vehicles and the results are stunning. The contour matches the vehicle exactly, and the low profile, smooth design adds a showroom aesthetic that can not be replicated with any other product.
Form Fit is the new standard for bug deflectors due to the advanced, low profile, contoured design. Find out more about Form Fit Hood Protectors from Auto Truck Depot.

Testing the Camaro

2010 Camaro

Shopping for hood protectors and other accessories can be fun, but what’s the point in buying all these add-ons if you don’t have a vehicle that knows how to perform? If you’re looking for a vehicle that’s not just pretty but also able to perform, then consider the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, which was recently tested at the infamous Nurburgring in Germany.

The vehicle was able to make the 13 mile trip around the ring in only a little over seven and a half minutes, beating out the 991 Porsche and several other automobiles. To top it all off, the trial run took place on a wet and rainy day, leaving spectators to wonder just how the vehicle would have performed in perfect conditions.

Whether you’ve got a Camaro or some other vehicle that knows how to perform, it’s important to fully protect it so that it can keep performing for you. You can purchase hood protectors and other great accessories to keep your vehicle performing at its best from Auto Truck Depot.

What’s Under Your Hood?

suvHoodProtector.jpgMost drivers know that, under the hood of their vehicles, lies the engine. It’s important to understand, however, that there are actually many different systems and sensitive devices underneath the hood of your truck! There’s a cooling system that keeps your vehicle from overheating, a front end accessory drive system that powers, amongst other things, those warning lights that come on when you don’t have your seatbelt fastened, a synchronous system that keeps all the various parts of your vehicle working together properly, brake related accessories, windshield wiper related accessories, and a whole lot more!

Obviously, with so much going on under your hood, it’s a smart idea to invest in hood protectors. Good, strong hood protectors, such as the Hood Guard available from Auto Truck Depot, protect the exterior of your hood when you’re involved in a collision, but, even more importantly, they also protect your truck’s sensitive inner workings.

Enjoy a Beautiful Truck

suvHoodProtector.jpgOwning a truck is a wonderful thing. Trucks allow you to feel (and actually be) large and in-charge while you’re on the road. They also allow you to easily transport cargo and other goods and can increase safety by giving you a higher-up vantage point as you drive. Since your truck does so much for you, you owe it to your truck (and yourself) to make it look as good as possible. After all, half of the fun of owning a truck is getting to customize it and make it look, well, to put it bluntly, cool!

One simple but very effective thing you can do to make your truck look its very best is to regularly wash and polish it, being sure to use only approved cleaning products. In addition to regular washing and polishing of your truck’s exterior, take care of the inside as well. Don’t let trash pile up inside your truck; if you’re prone to that, include a trash bag inside. Likewise, regularly vacuum your truck’s interior and use simple but effective interior protection devices, such as floor mats. Be sure to clean up any stains or spills as soon as possible and, if you possible discourage or even disallow eating or drinking in your truck.

Hood protectors are another great accessory to invest in. Not only do hood protectors look cool and stylish in and of themselves, but they can also protect your vehicle from the dents, dings, and scratches often caused by flying rocks and other road debris.

Riding in Safety and Style

suvHoodProtector.jpgWhen you have a beautiful vehicle, the last thing you want is for the hood, fender, and windshield to get covered in unsightly dents and scratches, not to mention squashed bugs and other road-grossness. Fortunately, no matter how rough the terrain on which you ride, you can protect your vehicle. Hood protectors are the answer and, as even better news, know that these devices aren’t going to turn your styling ride into an ugly, uncool vehicle. Instead, hood protectors are designed to be both stylish and functional, meaning you get the best of both worlds.

There are a lot of hood protector options available, and only you can decide which one is the best fit for you.  No matter which model you choose, a close fit is extremely important. If your protector doesn’t fit closely enough, it can easily make your vehicle look sloppy, and nobody wants that. Plus, a wrong-sized protector isn’t going to keep your vehicle as protected as you’d like. So, when you’re shopping, just read through the fine print and make sure that the protector is designed to work with a vehicle like yours. If you’re unsure or have any other questions, make sure you voice them before you buy. If you’re shopping somewhere with good customer service, like Auto Truck Depot, that shouldn’t be a problem.

Key features to look for in any protector include being made of a strong, lasting material, such as acrylic; coming with some kind of warranty to protect your purchase; being scratch and rust-resistant; and being able to go through normal cleaning and waxing processes without you having to worry about potential damage.

To Guard and Protect Your Hood

When it comes to truck accessories, hood protectors are some of the most hotly debated products out there.

They swear by the virtues of hood protectors. These are usually people who have gotten their protectors from a good source, like Auto Truck Depot, and thus enjoy all of the benefits that go along with a good, quality protector.

No matter where you stand on this issue, we urge you only to be staunch in your decision when you can honestly say you have given quality hood protectors a fair try. Most people who give them a real shot, even if it’s just by driving someone else’s vehicle, end up seeing their importance.

Good protectors live up to their name; they protect your vehicle’s hood, windshield, and fenders from dents, chips, and scratches, all of which can be unsightly and extremely expensive to repair.  Plus, the quality ones have a unique, streamlined appearance (no bulk!) that can actually make your vehicle more attractive, not less!

If you’ve never tried a protector or a good one before, we suggest you give the affordable Hood Guard a shot! Priced at under a hundred dollars, this protector keeps you free from ugly damage.

Hood Protectors are a Must

Imagine this: you’re driving down the road in your truck or other vehicle. Out of nowhere, something flies at your windshield. Best case scenario, it’s something small that causes minimal damage to your hood or windshield. Worst case scenario, it’s something large or something with a lot of force behind it that damages your vehicle and maybe even causes you to go off the road! Truth is, if you’ve owned a truck for a while, then you don’t have to imagine this at all, because it’s probably happened to you a time or two. Well, you can make these incidents a thing of the past by using hood protectors!

Hood protectors are extremely necessary, because it keeps not just your truck’s hood, but also its windshield and fenders free from damages and danger caused by bugs and flying stones, rocks, and other debris. Just make sure you choose one made from high quality, scratch resistant material and that is carwash and wax safe. All of the products offered through Auto Truck Depot fit this description, so you can shop without worry there.

As you’re doing your shopping, make sure you check out the Hood Guard, a very useful (and very affordable!) product. The guard features a great aerodynamic design that keeps it from bending or fluttering, even when you’re flying down the road. Plus, it looks great on your vehicle, enhancing its beauty rather than taking away from it. It can even help to protect against rust and other serious and expensive damages, not to mention the fact that it keeps you safer when driving, whether you’re going across the street or across the country!

So, feel free to shop around and to mix and match various types of hood protectors, as long as you always come back and buy one of these very necessary products.

The “bug” in the name is slightly misleading; it can easily make you think that all these products do is keep your vehicle free of pesky insects that, over time, can make a big, ugly mess on your automobile. While these products certainly do that, they also protect your vehicle from all kinds of flying objects you encounter on the road, including stones, which can do some serious damage. If you don’t want dings, scrapes, and scratches all over your hood, then this product is the way to go!

In the event that you ever need to clean your deflector, don’t worry! It’s fine to use a little soap and water or even some commercial cleaners on this product, made of incredibly durable materials. Installation and removal is easy as well, though you’ll never want to take this awesome product off. In fact, you’ll likely wonder how you ever lived without your deflector once you’ve had it for a little while. Affordably priced to own, this is one product you can’t miss and that your truck will thank you for.

Keep Your Shield Protected

The best hood protectors for some might come in a quality wax, which can help the hood battle the elements and maintain the vehicle's paint job. There's more protection needed to take on the environment, however, when it comes to the front of a truck.
 Similar to the front line during a conflict, it will get the brunt of the fight. From bugs to random pebbles to any sort of debris from other vehicles, the hood is front and center to take those dings and scrapes. While a windshield protects you from being pelted by bugs and random pebbles, hood protectors can do the same to increase the life of the truck body. This is very important to allow you to keep your truck looking its best, not to mention protection on your drive. There's little that's more dangerous than driving with a windshield covered with remnants of bugs or even a chip or two from a rock.

The Auto Truck Depot has a wide variety of these protectors, and they are customized to fit an array of truck models. One of the best models for your truck is the Auto Ventshade. The designer series of this model gives you a number of color finishes to choose from, such as black, white, red, light pewter, carbon fiber, Realtree Hardwoods HD camo and brushed nickel. They are car wash safe, improve the look of your truck, and also allow easy hood cleaning and waxing. These are tough protectors made to work and last. You can't shake all the little critters, but you can take proper measures to keep your ride from their impact.

Go with Hood Guard Hood Protectors

Hood protectors serve many important purposes for your vehicle. First, they simply make it look better and more attractive. Something about their smooth, aerodynamic appearance adds a sleek, sophisticated appeal to any vehicle. These products do more than that, however. They also keep not just your hood, but your windshield and fenders as well, safe from the damages that can result from flying stones, rocks, and debris, as well as from just general wear and tear. They completely minimize the likelihood of unsightly dents, bumps, and scratches, and they are also carwash safe and can be easily cleaned for maximum appeal.

There are many different types of hood protectors on the market today, especially if you shop with a fully stocked store like Auto Truck Depot. This particular store offers more products than you could possibly imagine, and all at very reasonable prices. Plus, their products are known for being made from the highest quality materials, and thus for being incredibly durable. One of the best products that they offer, though, is the hood guard, which offers a ton of protection for your prized vehicle.

The hood guard is particularly special, because it can stand up to just about anything. While many similar products will warp, bend, and sometimes even break under pressure, especially when trying to stand up to drivers who go at high speeds, these are guaranteed not to. Their upscale design allows them to stay firmly in place and to maintain their shape and thus their appearance. So, both the guard itself and your vehicle can stay looking as good as new for years to come.
