When considering having a paint protection film placed on your vehicle, there’s an important question that needs to be answered. Do you want to have just part of the car protected, or do you want to have the full vehicle protected?
The answer depends on your personal circumstances and needs.
Paint Protection Film Options
When installing paint protection film, the common choices are either to get just the front of the vehicle done or to have the entire vehicle done.
Most paint damage happens to the front of the car. This damage includes paint chips from rocks being flung up by other cars, as well as scratches to the paint. This is common in highway driving, especially on roads with a lot of debris.
For this reason, it makes a lot of sense to have the front of your vehicle covered in a paint protection film so that your vehicle’s paint stays protected.
All Car Areas
While the front is the most common area for paint damage, it’s not the only area. The sides and back can also get hit by rocks flung up by passing vehicles. Sticks and other environmental items can also scratch the sides of your car, detracting from the beauty of its paint job. Protection films are scratch-resistant and will protect the surface of your vehicle from unsightly scratches.
Another benefit is that preventing scratches and paint chips can also save you money, as installing a paint protection film is far less than the cost of painting the car. There’s another benefit, as well. By protecting your car from scratches, you’re also protecting it from rust. Scratches that go through the paint and primer will eventually cause rust, which can be unsightly and will lead to other problems.
