    Default Paint protection film

    As some will know Iím getting my front bumper resprayed week after next.

    Iíd like to add a paint protection film, diy, to the lower 1/2. Any suggestions of what and where to buy? Options seem a bit limited!

    (Iím not going the route of getting a professional in as itís about the same as the respray! So Iíll just cover the worst affected area.)

    Appreciated.

    Iíve often wondered about this. You have a paint job, but how soon after can you apply ppf?

    I've used Reep. Allow ten days at least after a respray.

    DIY isnt easy. Its one of those jobs like plastering that you look at, think there is nothing in it - until you try to do it. I have just applied a strip of 3M stuff to the rear bumper of the Merc Estate ( dog protection) and made a right mess of it. Bubbles everywhere that I cant get rid of and more than one figer print visible on the sticky side

    I would rather use a ceramic coating Clearwater that can protect most natural damage to cars.

    I am currently using this product SunTek Top Coated Paint Protection Film. It was recommended by a good friend of mine, and so far it does its work.

    I'd be giving Steve Baker a call, excellent job and reasonable prices

    my albeit small experience of fitting it yourself is one I still have nightmares about!!

    Steve's done all my cars for Years and also those of others I know
