Paint protection film from Tunes-N-Tint in Lakeland, Florida, is a great way to keep your car or truck looking like new. Most people think of these films as a clear bra or chip protection for their bumper. While those are popular applications, we look at how people use their vehicles day-to-day and have some unique suggestions for coverage areas. Read on to learn about our top seven key areas to protect.
What is Paint Protection Film?
Protective films are a layer of translucent polyurethane that we can apply over any painted surface on your vehicle. The film absorbs energy from stones, gravel and sand to prevent chips and scratches. The film resists damage from chemicals like bird droppings as well. Finally, the self-healing properties of the film make tiny scratches and swirl marks simply disappear.
1. Door Edges
If there is any surface that is going to take a beating, it’s the edge of your doors. Every time you park near a wall or another vehicle, you run the risk of a strong breeze catching your door and pulling it into a solid object. Protection film will keep the door edge looking great when accidents happen.
2. Door Cups
Ladies, do you your rings scratch the area behind the door handle? This location is one of the worst for scuffs and scratches. Proper application of protective film serves as an amazingly strong barrier against scratches from rings, car keys or long fingernails.
3. A-Pillars and Rear View Mirrors
Stones and debris are notorious for chipping your front bumper and the leading edge of your hood. But what about the A-pillars and the forward-facing side of your rearview mirrors? That painted area on either side of your windshield and your mirrors is as susceptible to damage.
Parking lots and inattentive shoppers can wreak havoc on your car. But what about the technicians changing your oil or making repairs to your vehicle? Protecting your car’s fenders with paint protection film can help prevent scratches from shopping carts, people walking past your vehicle carrying groceries or damage from buckles and zippers on technicians’ clothing.
5. The Roof
One of the largest painted surfaces of your vehicle is the roof. Damage from tree sap and bird droppings can be costly to repair. Protecting your vehicle’s roof is another great way to keep your car, truck or SUV looking like new.
6 Door and Trunk Thresholds
Do you occasionally drag your feet while getting into your car or truck? What about while loading or unloading your trunk? Our protective films can easily cover these high-traffic areas and keep them in tip-top shape.
7. Hood and Trunk
When you are driving, gravel, sand and stones thrown up by other vehicles can damage the paint on the leading edge of your hood. When your car is sitting still, tree sap, bird droppings and even prolonged exposure to the sun can damage any of the horizontal surfaces of your vehicle.
