What if I want to have a car wash wax or wash it?

You should treat the paint protection film shield the same as you normally do to the rest of the car’s paint. Just make sure it’s fully dry from installation and all edges are properly adhered before doing so (no flapping edges). High pressure washes will not affect the film kit as long as you avoid spraying the high pressure nozzle directly at the protection films edges from a ridiculously close distance (this isn’t good for your paint any way).

What can be done about wax build up along the seams and how can I avoid it?

A. Most installers do not inform their customers about the “wax lines”. It is important for the vehicle’s owner to understand that wax will leave a white line on the seam. We would recommend not waxing over the seams and waxing the film and uncovered portions separately to keep from wax build up. If you accidentally wax over the seam, just use a wet towel and rub it off. Another caution is to avoid buffing over the seams, which creates a noticeable wax line as well.

How much does it cost to have Paint Protection Film installed on my vehicle?

A. This is a question for your Certified Installer. There are many makes and models of cars, trucks, RVs and boats. On personal vehicles, Paint Protection Film is most often used to cover the front portion of the hood.

Paint Protection Film is also commonly applied to painted bumpers, mirror backs, truck bed rails, door handle inserts, door edges, rocker panels, mirror backs, wheel openings, etc. Any painted surface of a car, truck, van, SUV, RV, boat or motorcycle that is susceptible to bug damage and rock chips can be covered with paint protection film.

Since the amount of film required and difficulty of application will vary by vehicle model, Paint Protection Film suggests you contact Certified Installers near you for their recommendations and price quotes.

Can Paint Protection Film be used on boats or other watercraft?

A. Yes. Paint Protection Film is effective on applications above the water line, the sides to protect from docks, the deck to protect from foot traffic, and over teak and other woods to help preserve them. Marine requirements are different than automotive.
