Bug Shield

For Safety and Protection. Bug shields or Hood Deflectors are a great looking and very effective way to keep your windshield and hood clean.

Bug Guards in Seattle

When you care about your automobile, you want to keep it looking its best. However, nothing takes away from your vehicle's great looks like a windshield full of smashed bugs or gouges in your paintjob. Thankfully, you won't have to put up with these common issues with a Bug Deflector mounted on your vehicle. You'll enjoy amazing front-end protection, improved driving conditions, and many other benefits. That's because deflectors:

•    Redirect bugs from splattering against your windshield

•    Deflect rocks, gravel and other airborne debris from scratching your hood, fenders and windshield

•    Add a sleek, stylish finish to your vehicle 

Before we learn about how deflectors perform all these amazing feats, let's take a quick look at the different deflector types.

As their name implies, Bug Deflectors are made to keep insects from making a mess on your windshield and hood. They also shield rocks, gravel and other debris from colliding with your hood, fenders and windshield.

Bug deflectors mount right on the leading edge of your hood, one of the most punishing positions on your vehicle. In order to withstand the harsh conditions, they're built from rugged materials. Most are made from high-impact acrylic plastic. EGR, Auto Vent Shade, Lund And WeatherTech all manufacture bug deflectors from robust plastics. No matter which brand you go with, they all easily mount using either OEM-approved 3M adhesive or hidden screws.

Blocking bugs guide

Whether you're headed out on a cross-country road trip or driving down the block to the grocery store, chances are you'll run into a bug or two on the way. It seems unavoidable. Their flight plans are always set on a collision course with your front-end. More than just disgusting, their gooey carcasses can impair your driving visibility by mucking up your windshield.

A Bug Deflector alters your front-end's aerodynamics to launch wind up and over your windshield—not smack-dab into the middle of it. That way, when bugs zero in on your front window, the new wind current will send them sailing over your cockpit.

What's more, a bug deflector will help prevent those plump pests from crash-landing onto your hood. You may think that their slimy corpses are harmless, but their guts can be quite damaging to your paintjob. Most insects have very acidic remains, which will fuse to your vehicle's paint if left unwashed for a day or two. However, you won't have to worry about this type of damage when you install a bug deflector.

Rock deflection resource

Aside from their acidic innards eating away at your paint, bugs don't pose much of a physical threat to your vehicle. The same cannot be said for other airborne debris. Kicked-up rocks, gravel and other road rubble can leave nasty gouges, nicks and dents in your finish. Your hood is extremely vulnerable to this type of damage, along with your windshield and fenders. That's where a bug deflector comes to the rescue yet again.

"Great customer service"

I have a 2018 Suburban, Chevrolet does not have factory mud flaps that work, I know had 2015 with the factory flaps. One would think Chevrolet would figure this out. Rick at Auto Trim has, I called and talked to Rick about the above issue, he said he would order in three types for me to look at. In a week Rick called and the mud flaps were in, went down to the store, Rick and I tried all three. We found the one that would cover the tires so rain and mud would be blocked from being thrown up on the side of the car. I made an appointment for the install, went to the store and both fore and aft flaps were done in less than an hour, plus they look great. While waiting I learned from another employee about preventive maintenance on my sunroof. Great customer service, will be in for the PM on the sunroof. Thanks Rick and the crew Regards

Rick and the team at Auto Trim Design went above and beyond any expectations one would have in installing an over head DVD player into a family van. The prices are great and the service is excellent! I have three youngsters and they are always into something... Rick made sure that before we left the shop, ALL THREE monsters were taken care of and satisfied with our new player. If you are on the fence on deciding anything in your vehicle take the time to check out Auto Trim Design... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them and I will surely be back for any other needs I might have for our vehicle! Thanks again Rick and the team at Auto Trim Design :)

"These guys are professionals at what they do"

These guys seriously do some great work, I went in a couple months ago to get Katzkin leather seats with heating and cooling installed into my Challenger and am very pleased with the result. They had the install done in less than 2 days, the seats look amazing and the heating/cooling work great. I went back awhile after the initial install with a personal request to see if they could move the heating/cooling seat buttons to my dash/center console instead of the side of the seat where they were installed by default. At first they inspected my car and told me they weren't sure if it could be done because of how much room the switches would need inside the center console and the only way they would know is if they took it apart. I agreed to let them take a shot at it and got a call soon after telling me they found it is possible to move the switches to the dash and after picking where i wanted them they went ahead and got the job done for a very fair price and i picked up my car same day. Overall super good experience these guys are professionals at what they do & the work they did on my car is light out great!

I deal with a lot of different vendors in the auto industry and this place has the BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE HANDS DOWN. They also stand behind their work 100%. If you are looking for quality work with great service you have found your place.

Drove down to the Olympia location from Tacoma from a fellow South Sound Mopar car club member recommendation. Not even 30 seconds after dropping off the car they were already pulling it into the garage. Few hours later they called letting me know it was ready to go. Absolutely the quickest window tint job I have ever had. Very clean work and extremely friendly staff.

"A Company That Stands Behind Their Work"

image description

These people really stand behind their work. I recently had some flame graphics installed by them and unfortunately they were installed too high and they did not look right to me. I contacted the owner Rick and he set it up for them to purchase a new set of flame graphics and install them for no extra fee now they look "HOT" and I highly recommend this business and all their services.
