Things like that always tickles the crap out of me. Hopefully the tank protectors are better designed.
You see things like the “Hood Bra” and bed liners and other such stuff thats there to “protect your paint” . My question… ok great I am protecting it (arguable) but what good is it doing if your not able to see the painted portion. Then comes the usual retort “It’s for if you decide to resale the item you can remove it and it will be like it was the day you put it on”. Great, now the rest of the paint job surrounding the protected area is somewhat faded, dulled, micro scratched etc. except the one dang spot you protected…nice.
