Although car bras are a useful way to protect a car’s paint, they aren’t the most eye-catching or aesthetically pleasing things in the world. Thankfully, there is an alternative in the form of paint protection film. If you’re still up in the air regarding a car bra versus the film, there are plenty of benefits concerning the latter over the former.
There are typically three different styles of paint protection film: front end, full front, and full-wrap coverage.
A front end wrap partially covers the hood, partial fenders, all of the front bumper, and both mirrors. If you’re concerned about any visible edge or seam, don’t worry; unless you look at it from certain angles and are explicitly looking for it, the film’s edge isn’t noticeable. If there’s a build-up of dirt and dust, however, this edge does become more evident. The full front end wrap has the same sort of conditions when it comes to edges as the front end, only it fully covers the hood, fenders, bumper, and mirrors. Meanwhile, the full wrap is exactly what it says on the tin; the car is completely covered from front to back. Some dealerships and customization services also offer more specialized film coverings for specific sections of your car, such as the headlights, rocker panels, or the bumper.
The costs for film installation can vary, depending on the make and model of your vehicle alongside what installation service you go with. For example, SRS Tinting Solutions (serving the Vaughan-Mississauga area) offers front end coverage starting from $900, full front end starting from $1,650, and full wrap starting at $4,650. Do your research on the local detailers near you and the costs of their services. Additionally, before the application, your car should be as clean as possible while after the film’s applied you should wait 48 hours before washing your car, so the protection has time to adhere.
The warranty for protection film can vary but typically lasts around 10 years. To maintain the film, it’s recommended to maintain regular washes and an annual waxing in order to keep up the film’s appearance; you should care for it the same way you would any other painted surface. If you want the film removed, it’s recommended for a professional to do so; the paint is also highly unlikely to be harmed upon removal.
In summary, not only does paint protection film offer the same benefits as car bras it both looks much cleaner and is easily applied while still maintaining the same benefits.
