HomePaint Protection Installation



Please ensure that you carefully read the instructions and watch instructional videos on how to install paint protection before attempting installation.
Failure to do so may result in difficulties during the installation process.



Once an order is cut and shipped, it becomes ineligible for returns or refunds; all sales are considered final. Additionally, please note that all kits are tailored to your vehicle’s specific year, make, and model.


Note: Upon receiving and unrolling the material, you may notice small air bubbles and tiny creases on the backing paper.
This is a normal occurrence as small air pockets may become trapped under the material during the rolling process.
All the small creases are confined to the backing paper and should not affect the application process.


To soften the PPF material during installation of the paint protection, use a steamer.


Installation Tools: (Not Included with Precut kits)



1.     Soft Installation Squeegee:
A soft pink installation squeegee is essential for smoothing out the paint protection film (PPF) onto the surface of your vehicle without causing damage or leaving behind marks.

2.     Spray Bottles (Quantity: 2):
Two spray bottles are needed—one for the soap solution ( slip ) and the other for the alcohol solution ( tac ).
​These bottles facilitate the application process by allowing you to evenly distribute the solutions onto the surface before applying the PPF.

3.     Baby Shampoo:
Baby shampoo is typically mixed with water to create the soap solution used during the installation process. It helps lubricate the surface and allows for easy adjustment of the PPF.

4.     70% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol:
Rubbing alcohol is mixed with water to create the alcohol solution, which is used for cleaning and preparing the surface before applying the PPF. It helps remove any traces of wax, grease, or other contaminants that could affect adhesion.

5.     Non-Scratch Detailing Cloth:
A non-scratch detailing cloth (Microfiber towel) is used for wiping and drying the surface of the vehicle after cleaning and before applying the PPF. It ensures that the surface is free from any debris that could interfere with the installation process.

6.     Clay Bar:
A clay bar is used to remove any embedded contaminants from the surface of the vehicle, such as dirt, tar, or tree sap.
This helps ensure a clean and smooth surface for the PPF to adhere to.

7.     Olfa Knife:
An Olfa knife, or similar precision cutting tool, is required to separate patterns from the sheet for a Precut Paint Protection Kit or to perform minor trimming as necessary is essential.

8.     Steamer (Optional):
​A steamer is an optional tool that can be used to soften the PPF and facilitate the installation process, especially around curved or complex areas of the vehicle. It can help ensure a seamless and professional-looking finish.



Mixtures for Soap Solution Bottle and Alcohol Solution Bottle

Soap Solution Mixture (Slip)

Add 2-3 drops of baby shampoo or dish soap to a 32oz squirt bottle and fill with water.

Alcohol Solution Mixture (Tack)

Add 10 ounces of rubbing alcohol to a 32oz squirt bottle, then fill the rest with water.

Quick Tips:​

  • Set up and work in a dust-free environment with minimal or no wind, and away from direct sunlight.
  • Ensure that the painted surfaces to be covered are clean, dry, and free of wax residue.
  • Pre-mix both the soap solution and the water-alcohol solution before beginning the installation.
  • Take your time with the installation process; avoid rushing to achieve the best results.




General Instructions:

1.     For optimal results, ensure the ambient temperature falls within the range of 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, and refrain from application during inclement or windy conditions. (Consider indoor application if necessary.)
If the temperature dips below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, it's advisable to use warm water in your squirt bottles.

2.     We have provided specific formulations for both the soap solution and the alcohol solution.
The soap solution is suitable for general installation purposes, while the alcohol solution is best reserved for areas requiring immediate adhesion or stubborn residues.

3.     Apply the slip solution onto the intended surface, then gently wipe it off using a soft cloth to effectively remove any oil, grease, dirt, or other contaminants.

4.     Prior to removing the liner, double-check the placement and sizing of all components.

5.     Before commencing the installation, ensure your hands are free from any dirt or debris.
Even the smallest particle of dirt can compromise the adhesive and lead to unsightly results. Additionally, keep your fingers moist to prevent them from adhering to the adhesive. Handle the adhesive side with care, avoiding unnecessary contact.
While occasional handling may be required, do so lightly and swiftly to minimize the transfer of fingerprints onto the material.

6.     Remove any wax from the vehicle surface where the kit will be installed, as waxing a freshly waxed vehicle is not recommended. Dishwashing detergents or products like "3M Adhesive Remover" can effectively strip wax from painted surfaces.



HOOD PRECUT Installation Instructions:

1.     Begin by spraying the hood with the slip solution. Keep your fingers moist and carefully peel back a small portion of the shield from the liner on one end, ensuring the rest of the material remains rolled up. With one hand holding the rolled kit, use the other to gently place the loosened material onto the desired area of the hood. Slowly pull the liner across the hood, allowing the material to adhere naturally. Take care not to stretch or tear the material, especially if your kit includes relief cuts (thin cut-outs aiding in contouring). If needed, delicately release the liner around relief cuts.

2.     Once the material is positioned on the hood, spray additional slip solution between the hood and material, lifting one side at a time for ease of adjustment. Take your time to adjust the material without unnecessary stretching. Before moving the kit, apply more slip solution on top to prevent displacement by the squeegee.

3.     With the material maneuverable, center it on the hood, leaving a small gap of about 1/8” from the front edge.

4.     Secure the kit by making small vertical strokes down the center of the hood using a squeegee. Once a 3” to 4” wide strip is solution-free, the shield will be centered and firmly fastened.

5.     Prevent lifting of the edges and promote bonding by rinsing out excess slip solution underneath. Lift one end of the material, spray the hood and adhesive side with the alcohol and water solution, and remove the excess slip solution.

6.     Carefully return the material to the hood, ensuring it lies flat with the 1/8” gap maintained. Keep the top surface wet for easy squeegee gliding. Work swiftly to prevent rapid drying of the alcohol solution.

7.     Starting from the slip solution-free section, use the squeegee to smooth out the material. Begin at the center with horizontal passes to the hood’s edge, then work upward with short, overlapping strokes. Repeat the process downward, overlapping each pass, until the quarter of the hood is covered smoothly.

8.     If edges lift, gently go over them with a squeegee wrapped in a paper towel to absorb excess moisture hindering adhesion.

9.     Repeat steps 5 through 8 for the other side of the hood to complete the installation process.



MIRRORS Installation Instructions:

1.     Begin by using your squeegee to anchor one end of the material.

2.     Stretch the material from side to side and then from top to bottom to remove any excess material and prevent bubbles.

3.     Once the material is properly positioned, start from the center and use the squeegee to smooth the remaining material towards the outer edges.

4.     Prevent edges from lifting by gently smoothing them out with a squeegee wrapped in a paper towel.



FENDERS Installation Instructions:

1.     Start by aligning the fender edge with the upper edge piece, ensuring a consistent 1/8” gap along both the upper and front edges. For the smaller fender pieces, the alcohol and water solution can be applied without additional assistance.

2.     Gently use the squeegee to make a narrow pass along the upper edge of the fender piece. Avoid applying excessive pressure that may alter the positioning. Gradually increase pressure as the material bonds with the paint. Continue until all bubbles are eliminated and the alcohol and water solution is removed from beneath the upper edge.

3.     With the material attached from the top, carefully slide the bottom edge downward while ensuring thorough moistening of the adhesive with the alcohol and water solution. Simultaneously pull the material down with one hand and use the squeegee in the other hand to firmly pass from top to bottom.

4.     Finish by using the squeegee to remove any remaining bubbles or air pockets. For vehicles with extreme fender contours like Chevrolet or GMC pickups, consider wrapping the squeegee with a paper towel to address persistent areas.



GRILLE (if applicable) Installation Instructions:

1.     It's common to find that the painted surfaces where you'll be applying your pieces are larger than the actual pieces themselves. This intentional design allows for optimal stretching and smoother squeegee application. The narrow plastic pieces will naturally stretch a bit upon removal from the liner, influenced by how they're handled. To facilitate easier application, the pieces are intentionally designed shorter. Begin by aligning one end of the kit edge with the grille's edge, as this method is most effective for this type of grille kit.

2.     With gentle pressure, particularly on the narrow sections, stretch the material to the opposite side. Utilize the squeegee as you've practiced on other sections. Gradually increase pressure as the material adheres to the surface, ensuring a smooth finish.




Bumper, Spoilers, Airdams Installation Instructions:

The kits within this category are straightforward, requiring no additional instructions. However, due to the unique designs of some bumpers, specific techniques can enhance the application process.

1.     Given the unique curvatures, stretching the material is crucial for achieving a smooth finish. Begin by fully wetting the surface with the soap and water solution, then carefully roll out the material onto the surface.

2.     Thoroughly soak both sides of the material with the soap and water solution. Center the material on the upper edge, ensuring a 1/8” gap on the bumper’s edged surface. Note that mismatches in arc between the kit piece and bumper edge are typical and will be addressed later in the process.

3.     Once positioned, use the squeegee to make a vertical pass down the middle to adhere the material in place.

4.     After the center pass, lift the left side and rinse out the soap and water solution with the alcohol and water solution. Leave some soap and water solution around the farthest left 10” to 15" of the kit between the material and bumper.

5.     Hold down the last 10” to 15" with your left palm while stretching the material out and up slightly, forcing it to follow the bumper's arc design.

6.     While holding the material in position, start from the middle and use the squeegee to work outwards along the center of the upper section until it adheres securely to the bumper.

7.     Return to the left 10” to 15" section, lift it up, and rinse out any remaining soap and water solution.

8.     Once thoroughly rinsed, realign the material with the bumper edges and squeegee it into place. Leave any small “fingers” for now.

9.     Moving to the lower section, use 1” to 2” strokes from the middle to the left side to squeegee the material towards the left until reaching the bottom.

10.  Repeat steps 4 through 9 for the right side.

11.  To finalize, use a microfiber towel-wrapped squeegee to review your work, addressing any lifted edges, bubbles, or missed “fingers.”

Explanation for Installing Precut Paint Protection Kit:

When installing a precut paint protection kit, some customers may encounter concerns about the material not stretching adequately or being cut too short.
It's important to reassure them that the kit is cut
properly, and that shortness is intentional.

The reason for this intentional shortness is to accommodate stretching.
Stretching is a necessary step in the installation process to ensure that the paint protection fits the contours of the vehicle properly.
The material is designed to be stretched gently during installation, allowing it to conform seamlessly to the curves and edges of the vehicle's surface.
This stretching process ensures optimal coverage and protection for the vehicle's paint.

Therefore, customers should be advised that some degree of stretching is expected during the installation process and that the precut kit is specifically designed with this in mind.
Following proper installation techniques, including gentle stretching white using a steamer, will help achieve a precise and secure fit for the paint protection film.
