Is it tacky to cover seatbacks with Glad Press 'N' Seal until Xpel?

    I just know these shiny black seatbacks are going to be scratched like crazy in a week with my kids. I'd like to get the thing wrapped but I can't get it done for a little bit. Anybody got anything classier than Press 'N' Seal to put on the backs temporarily? I have pickup in Nashville on 3/26/16 woot!

    Yes. It's about as tacky as hot pants. ;) But if it works and keeps the backs clean until you can deal with it, then go for it. I certainly would!

    We are two days in and five days until Xpel. My wife and I threatened the kids with a loss of a great number of privileges if they put their feet on the seat backs... so far that's working :)

    It's tacky and smart at the same time.

    In a word: yes. It's tacky. But that's what makes it stick. ;)

    I use a small piece of Press N' Seal on the leather corner at the "A" pillar inside Model S that gets wear when entering and exiting the vehicle.

    The thin matte plastic lasts a few months and can be easily replaced. Helps keep the wear point undamaged and clean.
