Door paint protector

I'm not yet to the point where I don't mind scratching my rig and when I'm mudding the door is the most exposed piece of paint.

Is there any kind (maybe even disposable) protector I can slap on the doors when mudding to help prevent scratches from limbs? I try to stay away from limbs and the like, but sometimes its unavoidable.

EDIT: Did some more Googling and found this: http://offroadmagnetics.com/Home_Page.html

I've sent them an email inquiring as to pricing. Seems like a pretty cool product and a nice way to hit the trail and lessen any worries regarding scratches.

You can probably just buy some rolls of magnetic sheets then cut them to fit whatever you want to keep from getting scratched. That might be a cheaper alternative then getting stuff that is already custome made.

Where can you get something like that?

Google "magnetic sheet roll" and click on shopping. I'm not sure of a local store you could pick up but perhaps a sign company or something might carry some.

Seems to me that if you have a magnetic sheet on your door and it gets dust under it, you'll endup with scratches anyway from the vibrations of driving. Your best bet is to buy some scratch polish and a buffer pad.

Or you could just go scratch it once. The first one's always the worst.
