Went with the clear, so that it was a perfect match of the color underneath:wink2:Do a search, and you'll find other threads. Based upon what I read, I ended up going with these:
Car Door Edge Guards - Stop Door Damage with Door Edge Guards
They have lots of color options and you can order sample color sets. You should find a pretty close match.
Two-fold. To protect the paint on your car if you open it into a shelf (garage) or if it opens into another car. It might not prevent a dent in the other guy's car but at least there shouldn't be any paint transfer and scratches.What is the purpose of those door edge guards other than to keep the paint on the edge of your door from chipping when hitting another object?
