Prep Your Vehicle

  • We suggest that your check out all pattern selections for your car.
  • For the best paint protection application, we recommend that you have your vehicle washed.
  • We ask that you please remove all your personal valuables from the inside of your car.


  • Before washing or applying treatments, allow a minimum of 72 hours for the film to completely cure and for moisture to evaporate.
  • Do not use a pressure washer or drive-through car wash for the 30-day cure time. Hand wash only.
  • Use only car wash soap. Do not use powder-based or abrasive cleaners, solvent-based degreasers, rubbing compound, clay, or other types of abrasives. No high-speed buffing or polishing equipment. No bug or tar removers.
  • When waxing your new paint protection film, we recommend you use Plexus plastic cleaner protectant and polish only. We’ll give you a free can with your installation.
  • After your 30-day cure time, follow our instructions to achieve the highest level of protection and appearance:
    • Regular waxing is required to maintain the film’s luster.
    • For wax buildup around the edges, gently use a cotton swab dipped in isopropyl 70% - 90% (rubbing alcohol).
    • When washing your car using high-pressure washers, keep nozzle at least 36 inches away from paint protection edges.
    • Do not used dyed or colored car waxes on the film; use only soft terrycloth or microfiber towels on the film.
