Hi Jack,

I just measured the Stongard film.  It is a 0.100" thick 3M material!  Which
explains why it is quiet effective against all but the largest rocks.  I say
we should forget about warranties and just go with the best material that we
can find.  Sounds like you may have the best inside track and leverage into
3M products.  Go for it!
