Every single person who takes their off-road vehicle out into the wilderness never admits the one issue with off-roading: damaged paint work – courtesy of nature’s beauty but overgrown vegetation.
Every single person except one man from down under who recognized this nagging issue and confronts it with the world’s first vehicle body armor which he called Rhinohide.
Make no mistake. Rhinohide is no car wrap. Car wrap wouldn’t stand a chance with branches lashing out at your automobile. Rhinohide are rigid panels made of high impact ABS that protects the vehicle’s paint job from the brutality serves up by overgrowth.
Granted, it does share the temporary nature of car wraps, but that’s about the only thing the two has in common. It is totally reusable by design, so you can stash it away when you don’t need it.
Rhinohide attaches to the exterior of your beloved 4×4 using high-strength neodymium magnets and best of all, it can be installed by just about anyone in a matter of minutes. No specialist required.
You know what I see? I see the opportunity to pimp your ride in a whole new way. A two-tone car? Check. A car with half camo? Totally possible.
There’s a couple caveats, though. It looks like the panels are only for the lower half of the vehicle which means taller overgrowth will remain a threat and also, it is only available for specific make and model of cars.
At the time of this writing, Rhinohide Off-road Vehicle Body Armour is available for select Ford, Holden, Jeep, Mazda and Toyota models.
Prices start at $999 (I am assuming it is Aussie dollars that we are looking at), after discount and before tax and shipping. Rhinohide is available a variety of colors, including the apple of my eyes, camo. Lovely.
