Installed on new and used vehicles, Paint Protection Film is a nearly invisible film that is applied to the painted surfaces of your car (hood, fender, bumper, mirrors) to protect them from road debris. It is designed cover the main impact areas on the front of your vehicle that get blasted daily with rocks, bugs, salt, etc. from those dreaded California freeways. Most importantly, it will save you money from costly repairs whether you own or lease the vehicle.
Most of our Paint Protection patterns are computer cut and are available to us through our database of pattern configurations. We use the industry leading software pattern database by XPEL in addition to our hand and custom cutting options available if more coverage is needed.

PAINT PROTECTION FAQ
Why install paint protection?
Paint Protection was designed to protect your cars impact areas from dirt and road debris ultimately keeping the car looking new and saving you from costly repairs whether reselling or before a lease turn in.
Does Paint Protection Film resist yellowing?
Yes, it resists yellowing because the film is constructed of thermoplastic urethane, a tough, conformable material that is covered by a clear coat layer. The film and clear coat layers contain UV protectants to counteract harmful ultraviolet rays that can cause yellowing.
Will the Paint Protection Film harm the painted surface if the film is removed?
If the film is properly applied to a fully cured painted vehicle, it can be removed, usually in one piece, without damaging paint surfaces beneath the film.
What are some characteristics of a poorly installed clear bra?
Stretch marks- when paint protection film is stretched past its threshold a significant change in the texture of the film will appear. A small amount of this is acceptable around compound curves but should be very minimal.
Excessive gaps at the body edges due to poor pattern design or misalignment.
Air or water bubbles that do not go away due to improper squeegee technique
Dust or dirt under the film
Can Paint Protection Film be applied over a vehicle that has had the paint touched up?
We recommend that any repainted surfaces on your vehicle be professionally painted and fully cured before applying paint protection film. If you have touched up scratches or chips with a tube of “touch-up” paint and then apply paint protection film over it, the film will protect that area until it is removed. If the paint protection film is removed, it is possible that the area around the non-professional touch-up paint could peel off.
How is Paint Protection Film maintained?
Once applied, refrain from washing the vehicle for 3-4 days until the film cures. Washing after that time presents no problem, and no special care need be taken for the film.
Can I use wax over Paint Protection Film?
Yes. When waxing the vehicle though, some wax may build up along the film edges. This can easily be removed when dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any waxes containing dyes or waxes that are not recommended for urethanes. Abrasive polishes and/or rubbing compounds are not to be used.
