paint protection

What does everyone put behind the mirror movers, windshield light mounts, light bars, etc to protect the paint behind them and where do you get these things?
If I ever need to take them off, I don't want the paint destroyed.
Thanks!

Look here and specifically at this. There may be other stuff, but this is a good start.

I just mounted my mirror movers directly onto the paint. They're on securely and don't move around, so I don't think that scratched paint underneath will be a problem. Over time, I'm sure that the exposed paint around them will fade and the paint under the movers won't, but I can't think of a "fix" for that. I'm just not planning to take them off.

If you are planning to remove the accessories from time to time, you could probably put some clear contact paper on the inside surfaces without affecting the fit.

I've been wanting to try 3M Paint Protection Film for the leading edges to protect against rock chips.

This is what I did to protect the front nose and bottom edges from rock chips...
pic here
Not a very close pic but you can see that its covering the front 6" of the hood, the entire front grill, and the front and top of the fenders. I used a spray on rock chip guard that is supposed to be used on the rocker panels of cars and then painted over, I just didnt paint over this. You can get it from NAPA's Martin Senour Paints. It's product number 4004 Stone Guard Black. It makes a very subtle ripple texture kinda like rihno lining.

'98 TJ has been under the knife the last 18 months getting a new frame, torque boxes and fenders.
