Hmm...I have installed clear film on headlights and on the leading edge of the hood my VW....it's pretty easy with the right tools. Griots Garage (www.griotsgarage.com) sells a spray liquid that helps lubricate the material while you line things up. But I've only done relatively small areas. Getting a larger area bubble-free might be a challenge. Oh...and a heat gun helps too.

I'd be interested in the link to the pre-cut products.

Default when removed

I see so many cars with that they removed the film. Almost all of them are spottable from a mile away since they all have distinct yellow nicotine mark on their hood. Is that because of the faulty installation, or faulty reemoval? Any guidance on that?

Nitron,

I have been installing for a long time and know how it all works. While the Invinca-shield kit is real easy to install because of all the splits and seams. It might not be the best way to go. What happens over time is the dirt collects in between the seams and you can get it out.

You can check out what we have if you would like. Click on the StonGard kit to get a good idea of what we have. The Grand Canyon kit is $238.00 for 3M. This might work better for you or not. click here

If you want to attempt the install you can let me know and I will give tips and pointers. I would however recommend a trained installer for the install.

Let me know if I can help with anymore questions

Take care

Can you provide pictures what's included in that kit..

Is it self adhesive.. like the headlight protection.. or do you have to wet it and apply like you do to window tint film.?..

Also what's the difference between StoneGuard and Paint Protection Kit?.. they very greatly in price..

Nitron,

The product is a self adhesive like the light protection is. You would apply it wet with rubbing alcohol and water. It is sort of like window tinting expect you have corners and compound curves to deal with. We carry our own line and StonGard. The major differences are StonGard has door cups and door edges and if it is installed by a trained installer you get a damage warranty with their product.

Both brands have a product warranty for cracking, fading or yellowing for as long as you own the car. You can check out some installs here

If you have any other questions let me know and I will see if I can help you out with the buying process.
