Removed Coach Wrap, what next?

I have removed the Coach Wrap from the from of my Safari Sport. It had discolored over time and looked bad.
Does anyone know where I can get a replacement wrap and how difficult is it to install?

What exact part are you needing?

The only wraps are "banana wraps," which are on the 4 corners of the trailer and below the floor line.

This is the clear plastic wrap on the front of the trailer, also called stone guard. Mine turned blotchy and yellow after many years of exposure.
This stuff is really hard to remove without harming the aluminum skin it is supposed to protect. I still have about 6 square inches to get off.
I looked in the parts book and it's not listed there.
Do you think it might have been an aftermarket add on?

The stone guards, or segment protectors, cover the front 2 quarter panels are are made with stainless steel.

The part that covers the front 3 windows is called a rock guard".

Both of those parts are held in place with hinges.

How about a photo?

I think you are referring to the 3M film commonly used on cars also called "clear bra".
Call an auto gadget shop and ask for this service as it is custom cut.
Most places that do window tint also have the 3M film also.

Yes, that is what I just peeled off. I think I will not replace this stuff....at least not until the blisters on my fingers have healed.

Early versions are not UV stable and get UGLY. When all cracked nearly impossible to pee off. Like one of those high security price tag stickers!

You can buy the stuff and cut to fit yourself! Just need a razor knife and a straightedge

Ok, it's not in the parts book but is mentioned in the 2007 Safari Sport brochure. They call it: "Coach Guard Wrap Protective Film"
Know of a supplier I can contact?
