By following these detailed instructions, you'll properly prep your vehicle for the installation of the precut paint protection kit, ensuring a clean and smooth surface for optimal adhesion and protection.


Installation Steps:

1.    Positioning the Film:

·      Spray the panel you tend to install, squeegee the panel to eliminate dust or debris, and respray the panel before grabbing the material

·      It's crucial to have assistance when carefully removing the backing from the pre-cut paint protection film. Another person can help you ensure the liner of the material is properly removed, exposing the adhesive side, while you simultaneously spray your slip solution onto the adhesive.

·       Before squeegeeing, align the film with the desired area on your vehicle's panel where you're installing the paint protection film, ensuring it's positioned correctly. We recommend watching YouTube videos for guidance on where to tactically place it first, as each panel may require different application techniques.

2.    Wet Application:

·       Spray the surface of the vehicle and the adhesive side of the film with the water and soap solution ( Slip Solution ). This will prevent the film from sticking prematurely, allowing you to reposition it as necessary.

·       Gently place the film onto the surface, starting from one edge and gradually smoothing it out with your hands or a squeegee.
The solution will help you slide the film into the correct position.

3.    Squeegee Technique:

·       Once the film is positioned correctly, use a squeegee to remove any excess water and air bubbles trapped beneath the film.
Start from the center and work your way out towards the edges, applying even pressure to ensure proper adhesion.
Use tack solution as needed when the film requires stretching so one side won't pop and move.

·       Be cautious not to apply too much pressure, as this could damage the film or the vehicle's paint or even put a dent in the panel.

4.    Heat Application:

·       If necessary, use a steamer to gently warm the film.
This will help it conform to the contours of the vehicle's surface, ensuring a tight and seamless fit. ( Steamer is highly recommended )

·       Keep the heat source moving constantly to avoid overheating or damaging the film.
Pay extra attention to edges and curves where the film may need more stretching.
Avoid using a heat gun at all costs.

5.    Final Touches:

·       Once the film is properly installed and adhered to the surface, any areas that have edge wrap, rinse the edges with the ( TAC Solution ) let those areas sit and dry for an hour or two before coming back and folding the edge wrap.
If it won't stick, that means water is preventing the film from sticking, which means more time is required before folding the edges.

·       Inspect the film carefully for any air bubbles or imperfections.
If needed, you can use a Diabetic needle to carefully puncture and release trapped air bubbles, then smooth out the film with the squeegee.
A video on how to can be found below.

·       Allow the film to cure for at least 72 hours before exposing it to any water or harsh conditions.


By following these steps and taking your time during the installation process, you can achieve a professional-looking finish and provide long-lasting protection for your vehicle's paint.

​Common Installation Mistakes:

Now, if you accidentally overstretch the paint protection film during installation, here's how you can trim it using an Olfa knife:

1.    Assess the Damage: Carefully examine the stretched area to determine the extent of the damage and whether it can be trimmed without affecting the overall coverage of the film.

2.    Prepare the Tools: Make sure your Olfa knife is sharp and clean to ensure clean cuts without tearing the film further.

3.    Mark the Trim Line: Use a marker or masking tape to mark the trim line where you want to cut the film.
Be precise and take your time to ensure accuracy.

4.    Cut Along the Line: Hold the Olfa knife at a shallow angle to the surface and carefully cut along the marked trim line. Apply gentle pressure and make multiple light passes if necessary to avoid tearing the film.

5.    Check the Fit: Once trimmed, check the fit of the film to ensure it aligns properly with the surrounding areas.
Make any necessary adjustments by further trimming if needed.

6.    Smooth Out Edges: Use a squeegee or soft cloth to smooth out the edges of the trimmed film and ensure it adheres properly to the surface.

7.    Inspect and Clean: After trimming, inspect the area to ensure there are no rough edges or imperfections.
Clean the surface with a mild soapy water solution to remove any debris or adhesive residue.


Removing Paint Protection Film:

You've recently applied a paint protection film but aren't pleased with the outcome of the installation. Now, you're seeking to remove it in order to replace it with a newly purchased panel.

Here's a step-by-step guide on how to properly remove pre-cut paint protection film from a vehicle using a steamer method:

1.     Prepare the Area: Park the vehicle in a shaded area or inside a garage to avoid direct sunlight.

2.     Gather Equipment: You'll need a steamer and a microfiber towel.

3.     Fill the Steamer: Fill the steamer with water according to the manufacturer's instructions and allow it to heat up.

4.     Test the Steamer: Now that the steamer is warmed up let's start.

5.     Begin Steaming: Hold the steamer nozzle about 4-6 inches away from the edge of the paint protection film you want to remove. Start steaming along the edge, moving the nozzle back and forth to evenly distribute the heat.

6.     Heat the Film: Apply steam to the edge of the film for about 30-60 seconds to soften the adhesive underneath. Be careful not to overheat the film, as excessive heat can damage the paint or cause the film to tear.

7.     Peel Back the Film: Once the film is heated and softened, use your hand to gently lift the edge of the film. Slowly peel back the film, keeping the steamer nozzle directed at the area you are working on to maintain heat.

8.     Work in Sections: Work in small sections, heating and peeling back the film gradually. Take your time to avoid tearing the film or leaving adhesive residue on the surface.

9.     Clean Up Residue: After removing the film, use a microfiber towel with goo gone or 70% alcohol to wipe away any remaining adhesive residue.

10.  Inspect the Surface: Once the film and adhesive residue are removed, inspect the surface of the vehicle to ensure it is clean and free from any remaining residue or damage.

By following these steps, you can properly remove pre-cut paint protection film from a vehicle using a steamer method.
​Remember to work carefully and patiently to avoid damaging the paint or leaving adhesive residue behind.
