As it says cheapest place to get a bug shield for front hood for a 2004 envoy XL. its starting to rust a bit so i wanna protect the front of the hood. At least for this winter. anyone from Ottawa got one they dont want. Kenny U pull has nothing and sunshine auto neither.


Secondary question: Will a Tahoe bug shield fit or something along the GMT line fit?

Aren't the hoods for Envoy and Envoy XL the same?

I found the bug shield for my Silverado at Pep Boys. Their price was right around the best I could find at Amazon and I had it in my hand in minutes.

I know a lot of places will price match also. See if you can find it cheap on amazon or wherever then go to store and ask them to match it. That way you can have it same day and have a place to return it if something is wrong with it.

In Canada they only price match on Canadian websites and usually its a better price in store than anyways

I've heard sometimes the bug shield can actually accelerate rust on the hood as it will catch salt grime kicked up by traffic and hold it against the hood.

I take mine off every winter and put it back on in the spring. My truck is a rustbucket but my hood has very little rust on it!

Easier said than done when your 450 miles from Minot ND. :no: The savings disappear real quick @ 1.30/liter or about 5.00/gal US of course. But then these are Canadian $. :undecided:

I have been kinda wondering about that too, since I have only had my TB since end of March. Have been seeing some leaves build up and have been thing of what the snow will do. I think I will remove it.

Instead of a plastic bug shield, have you thought about using ArmorAll's custom shield coating. It comes in black, white, gray, and clear. Its kinda like plasti-dip where it just peels right off. You could do a strip of black or gray across the front of your hood and that would definitely protect the rest of your paint and seal off the current rust from the elements.

What's the practical difference between plasti-dip and the armor-all product you linked?

Plasti-dip is a rubber coating, where the ArmorAll is like a film. Both are spray on and peel off. Plasti-dip is cheaper per can though.

My bad, I forgot to look at your location. Plasti-dip is very expensive there. Locally, I can get it for about $5 per can. I am glad the ArmorAll worked out for you. :thumbsup:

I have never been a fan of bug shields, anything is better than throwing more plastic on your GMT.
