Paint Protection Film (PPF) emerges as a knight in shining armor, providing a shield against the ravages of the road. In this article, we shall delve into just why PPF is such an imperative feature for headlights and present you with our one-stop guide on how to install it like a pro.
Headlights, the luminous eyes of your car beholden to a horde of threats.

Putting on PPF sounds like a complicated process, but fear not – provided you follow these easy steps correctly, the installation will go off without a hitch:
Before you take the first step during your journey with the PPF installation process, that of gathering all its necessary tools at hand first. This may be those of the film itself, spray bottle containing water as well as suds, squeegee tool, microfiber cloth, along with an ideally applied heat gun for treatment.
Begin by cleaning your headlights meticulously. Any dirt or debris left behind can affect the adhesion of the film. A gentle yet thorough cleaning ensures a solid foundation for the PPF.
Lay the PPF over the headlight and carefully measure the amount needed. Add a few extra inches for the margin. Once measured, cut the film with precision.
Spritz a lot of the water-soap mixture onto the headlight. It only serves as a lubricant, allowing you to move and adjust your position easily. Place the film exactly over the headlight.
On pushing out any air bubbles or wrinkles, work from inside towards the edges using a squeegee. Since it settles in shape, heat needs to be applied using a heat gun because as it settles into form, it will conform into shape without leaving behind bumps.

It is more than just shielding them; it also protects their allure and integrity,.
