Lastly, when you come to removing the tape - it''ll probably pull away more than the damaged paint.

I'd either apply underseal or hammerite as a temporary protective measure.


Cheers, will do today.
Can you get wheel arch covers for an 04 Scenic? Considering that as an option if they are available. Done it with a 316i BMW years ago covered the problem rather than a costly repair.
