OUR INSTALLATION PROCESS

How we install our paint protection film in San Antonio

fancy-number-bg

Clean

After you drop off your car, we’ll do a full inspection to ensure your vehicle’s paint job is perfect before we apply. We’ll also hand-wash, decontaminate, and clay bar your vehicle to ensure it’s entirely free of debris and imperfections that might cause the surface layer or ‘bra’ to not lay down properly).

Cut

Once your car is cleaned and dry, we’ll use our state-of-the-art commercial plotter to print rolls of paint protection film that are pre-cut to fit the dimensions of your vehicle. This process ensures a seamless installation—making the film entirely unnoticeable when applied.

Install

From there, we’ll apply your paint protection film for your vehicle, using a variety of techniques to ensure a seamless installation. We even use surgical scalpels (as opposed to standard razor-blades) to precisely cut any excess film—providing the best installation possible.

Inspect

Following installation, we’ll inspect your vehicle for any creases and bubbles, being careful to remove them without damaging the film. Then we’ll apply heat using an industrial heat gun to activate the adhesive, ensuring the PPF sticks snuggly to your vehicle, completing the installation.

Why Choose Us for PPF Services?

Custom-cut To Your Vehicle

We’ll custom-cut out paint protection film to the length of your vehicle. This allows us to create custom slices of film that fit perfectly with your vehicle’s contours and edges.

Seamless Application

We’ll use all manner of expert techniques and tricks (such as a scoring, trimming, and feathering) to ensure any excess film is out of sight. We’ll fully wrap all corners and tuck all edges to ensure a top-tier installation.

Experienced Installers

PPF is a relatively tricky install. The job requires lots of precision-work that—unlike a vinyl wrap—is easy to botch. Fortunately, our San Antonio paint protection film installers are some of the best in the business, and are guaranteed to do it right every time.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Paint Protection Film?

Paint Protection Film (otherwise known as “clear bra”) is a clear protective film made using a transparent polyurethane substance that can be used to protect your vehicle from common ‘surface-level’ unpleasantries like surface scratches, water deposits, uv exposure, acid rain, or oxidation. Completely see-through and slightly pliable, PPF is an affordable and discreet way to protect your car’s paint job year-round.
Fun fact: Paint Protection Film was developed by the U.S. military to help prevent structural damage to their helicopter rotor blades, without affecting their performance.

What’s the difference between PPF & Vinyl?

Vinyl wrap is pretty thick compared to PPF, which makes the former both easier to install and not transparent. In contrast, PPF is transparent and much thinner and lighter (which makes it both harder to install and completely see-through). Unlike vinyl, paint protection film also offers superior scratch and stain protection, and is much better at protecting your vehicle from the elements.

Are there different finish options?

Yes. You can choose from two finish options:

A fully-transparent film (also known as a clear bra) that will give your vehicle a see-through glossy-finish that accentuates the painted surfaces underneath. Or you can go with a ‘stealth’ version that will provide a matte finish that compliments with your vehicle’s paint job.

How long does PPF last?

A professionally installed paint protection film that’s properly maintained should last anywhere from 5 to 10 years. After which, it will need to be completely removed and replaced for your vehicle to remain fully protected.

How much does a Paint Protection Film installation in San Antonio cost?

It depends. The price varies greatly depending on how much film you use (based on the size and contouring of your vehicle), the type of film used, and the labor involved.

Can I do it myself?

Due to the precision-work involved, Paint Protection Film is one of the hardest paint jobs to do yourself. Moreover, inferior PPF products and knock-offs will often discolor and develop a yellowish tinge—ruining the paint job of your vehicle. That’s why we recommend you work with a professional San Antonio PPF installer who can do it right.
