We offer 2 films: 3M Scotchgard™ and
VentureShield and we feel these are the
best two in the market. There is no price difference between
the two and you can select which you prefer upon checkout.
Straight from the factory some manufactures will install paint
protection film on vulnerable areas of the car (e.g. the rear
arches of Porsches, rear bumper decks of sedans, and near the wheels
on some trucks). Applicators using pre-cut kits that are
computer cut for a specific cars are your best choice. The other
alternative involves using a razor blade to cut the film on the car
after it is applied in sheet form but we don't recommend this since
the odds are the razor blade will cut or scratch the surface of your
car defeating the entire purpose of this film.
Our ClearBra kits are cut in house using any of our
four plotters. We offer kits designed to cover the entire
hood, partial hood, bumper, lights, rockers, and much more.
Email us if you are
interested in a full hood/quarter panel kit. We generally cut
each kit within 48 hours of the initial order and it gets shipped. Allow up to 5 days in transit once it has shipped.
Every pattern is test fitted for quality control and most have been
installed many times over.
Paint protection film is applied using a slip solution which is
liquid soap based (baby shampoo and water mixed) and stretched into
position and aided by the use of Isopropyl alcohol to tack the
material down if needed. The soap solution provides a temporary way
to apply the film onto the painted surface without the film sticking
prematurely. A squeegee is then used to lay the film flat forcing
the soap/water solution out from underneath it and at that point the
film begins to take hold. The adhesive used is typically an acrylic
pressure sensitive adhesive. For full written instructions,
The film can be removed at a later time without damage to the OEM
factory paint but removed film can not be reapplied. It is meant to
be installed once and will provide many years of protection.
