    I have a dog ramp for a staffy,
    Anyone used door sill protectors?

    Ive seen some but look too permanent, one product you soak in water and stick on but no mention how to get em back off. Any ideas?
    Car is a polo e and has wide sills

    I think generally these are a good move.....sometimes the self adhesive ones come adrift after a while so I fix them back with number plate sticky -both- sides tape strips which are permanent enough.
    They are removable by drawing some tough fishing line through them, cheese cutter style.
    Do use the ones that are designed for your particular car though, rather than the 'fit everything' types - and in reality fit nothing.

    There are clear plastic film type protectors that you apply to the bumper with soapy water and squeegee it out. That could be what the OP is referring to. They protect the paint but my lab's rough feet scuff the film and it looks a bit tatty. I'm looking at getting a black ABS one. You apparently can peel the plastic film type off with no damage, I suspect a bit of heat might soften the film.
