I know I've seen others on here do this. I'm curious about how well it holds up to abuse. I have to admit I'm not that nice to my windows. My rear stays rolled up most of the summer and the sides are in and out and folded and tucked under the seat or in the floor boards etc. Obviously I'm not too worried about scratches, but I imagine this stuff would peel right off.

Definitely post up some reviews after a few months of driving around with it. I'm curious to hear how it holds up.
