1.   Is the protection completely invisible ?
 

The film is almost perfectly optically clear however if you look close you will be able to see the edge of the film.

  
2.   Can the film be removed without damaging my paint work?
 

Yes the film is designed to be removed not only without harming your paint work but will be removed leaving little to no reside behind to clean up. This is based on you having original factory paint work. If a re-spray has been completed on the same section of the vehicle that the film is to be applied there are important factors to consider. It is very important that the surface has been prepared and painted professionally and given sufficient curing time to outgas and dry the newly painted surface. Ultimately if the adhesion between the paint and body surface is less than the adhesion between the film and paint work then removing the film may possibly remove the paint. This will never happen on correctly prepared, painted and cured paint surfaces.

  
3.   I don’t like how I can see a fine line across the bonnet?
 

There are a few simple answers to this question:

  • Don’t have the film applied if you would prefer seeing small stone chips across your bonnet. You will be very lucky to find a panel beater to re-spray your bonnet for under $500.
  • Have an unsightly bonnet protector fitted.
  • Fit a car bra
  • Look at having the whole bonnet area covered in the Paint Protection film to avoid seeing any finish lines from the film.
