The film that we use here at Simple Details is going to have a top layer Clear Coat that is not only going to give you Anti-Yellowing properties but also Self-Healing features. You want to make sure your choice of PPF is going to provide these features, as it is going to keep the car looking as pristine and as new as possible, and for as long as possible. Regarding warranty – you want to assure that it will provide you with a warranty against any kinds of factory defects.
Now, beware of the fact that all films are not created equal, all installers are not created equal. This video shows a Porsche 911 GT3 that just got transported over from Richmond, and it has some paint protection film on it (not installed by Simple Details). But the client is not happy with it because the installation was not done properly.
So, this car’s poor PPF installation has exposed edges that will collect dirt, it also has adhesive distortion, lift lines, and work marks. This improper installation deters from its beauty and everything that the client purchased the vehicle for. What we are going to do in this video is remove this film and put a professional installation of PPF on the car.
Once we have completed the full installation of the Paint Protection Film, let’s go over what a proper installation of PPF should look like. As you can see in the video results, we have zero defects in the installation, no work marks, and all edges are fully wrapped. We also removed the headlights and wrapped into the actual headlight housing to make sure we don’t have any of those defects that were prevalent before.
In summary, when you are looking at Paint Protection Film, it is crucial to not only consider the quality of the film, but we are also about the quality of the installation. A proper installation goes a long way in the actual durability of the installation and aesthetics.
