eXpert Upper Window Frame Paint Protection Film (Clear PPF)
A Pillar PPF is something that has been requested for a little while. Pre-cut templates allow for easier installations. Whether you use your Bronco for long range commutes or in and around town, a little additional protection can go a long way.
Please watch our video for tips. Working with PPF is a little bit different than vinyl. This listing is for the upper, center portion of the window frame. The painted portion above the glass.

Clear Oracal ORAGUARD 270G stone protection offers a transparent solution to paint protection. It is 6 mil in thickness.
NOTE: 2 sets are sold at a reduced price. Keep it as a backup or in case your first install proves to be difficult.
We recommend doing this after a fresh car wash. Re-clean the application area to prepare it for installation. Just use a wax free detailing spray if your vehicle is not too dirty. Do not forget to clean the edges of the A pillar. Also wash your hands. You do not want to get dirt stuck to the adhesive side of the PPF.
Watch our video for some general tips. The center portion should be easier than the sides and we recommend removing the front portion of your roof to access the top of the window frame. Much easier that way.
NOTES: We recommend that the installation area be free of wax and not under direct sunlight.
You will want to do this in 70-80 degree weather ideally. Stay in the shade.
Apply application fluid to the target install and nearby surrounding area. Also apply it to the back of the PPF as it is removed from the backing paper. Apply it to your fingers for bonus points.
With a liberal amount of application fluid on the target area and PPF, you can change the alignment of the PPF by gently pulling up on portions and setting it back down.
Once you alignment is ideal, you can start to squeegee out the liquid. Our video has key tips on this.
Try to get out all bubbles without damaging the PPF. Take your time and learn how the material reacts to pressure. Should you push down hard on our felt tip squeegees, they can leave some glue residue. Any adhesive remover or Goo Gone should be able to remove that.
