I purchased your kit, but it’s a little short?

Correct, the material is insufficient due to the required stretching. To achieve a proper fit, it’s essential to stretch the material, given the uneven surface of the panel. Therefore, tacking one corner and stretching it to the adjacent corner is necessary to eliminate any wrinkles or irregularities.

I received material that has a minor defect, stain, or dirt debris.

All manufacturers conduct quality checks on the material before selling it to shops. We meticulously inspect the film for defects both before and after cutting any order, ensuring thorough scrutiny before packing and shipping. Prior to installation, it is essential to examine the film for defects or dirt.

If, after installing the material on the vehicle, you discover dirt specs or defects, the product is ineligible for warranty submission. Refunds for defective materials are not issued; instead, replacements are dispatched only upon receipt and approval of the material by the manufacturer.

Once you open the kit and install any piece, the kit is no longer returnable for any refund whatsoever. We cannot resell your kit once you open and tamper with it.

I received my kit, where is my warranty card?

  1. Your warranty is digital through us. There is no warranty against self-damage to the material during or after installation, rock chips, or peeling of the material. You only have a 10-year warranty against fading and cracking. The material has to be sent back to us so that we can provide it to the manufacturer for them to decide if it can be warrantied out or not. We do not make these decisions, we only provide new material if the manufacturer agrees to warranty the film. You, as the consumer, have to properly take care of the material and keep it hydrated for it to last.

Those are not defects, the material is quality checked by us and the manufacturer for defects.

Do i get Installation tools with PPF kit?

We do not provide any tools with the Paint Protection kits we sell. All installation tools must be sourced independently through platforms such as eBay or Amazon.

I encountered issues during the installation process do you offer replacement patterns?

If you encounter issues during the installation process, feel free to reach out to us, and you can purchase the specific panel you need.

Is it possible to incorporate remaining material when creating a plot?

In the process of creating the plot, excess material needs to be removed and discarded. If there is space available on the sheet, we contemplate the inclusion of mirrors, door cups, or duplicate headlights, particularly when they are part of full or partial front kits. However, it’s important to emphasize that additional items can only be included if there is enough space on the sheet; otherwise, they cannot be accommodated.

Online sources suggest that you don't necessarily have to exclusively opt for pre-cut options; instead, you have the option to choose bulk hood for easier stretch and installation?

You’re absolutely right. Pre-cut kits can be adapted and swapped for bulk sheets. In our shop, we primarily engage in bulk hood installations and strongly advocate this approach to our customers. Certain vehicles, especially those with highly curved panels like the front hood, benefit from the use of bulk material to ensure a successful installation. While pre-cut options can work, they demand considerable expertise in stretching the material to fit accurately. In contrast, using bulk material makes the installation significantly easier. You can find instructional videos on bulk installations on YouTube.

With over 35 years of experience in paint protection installs, we can provide valuable insights on the best methods for your installation. Feel free to email us if you have any questions before purchasing your kit.

Do you provide any additional discounts with the purchase of your kits?

I bought a kit with a specific design but received an updated version.

Sometimes, the manufacturer redesigns the kit for better fitment or an updated version. Rest assured, you will always receive the revised and improved version as they are released. Please note that all product pictures and descriptions are subject to change.

I have a product of the same brand, but there is a slight difference in the material.

  1. Consistency: Even with the same raw materials, variations can occur between batches. This could be due to changes in suppliers, slight differences in manufacturing conditions, or other factors. Quality control measures are typically in place to ensure that these variations are within acceptable limits.

  2. Quality Control: Manufacturers often implement strict quality control measures to ensure that products meet specific standards. This involves testing samples from each batch to verify that they meet required specifications for things like strength, purity, dimensions, and other relevant characteristics.
