Pre-Cut Templates

AutoDetailer Studio custom cuts and fits all our films to each vehicle to ensure a PEFECT FIT with NO PANEL GAPS. Template based films used by competitors are pre-cut and often leave unsightly edges that expose panels to weather and debris. These exposed edges later tend to bubble and gather dirt before finally failing and peeling-off.

Custom cut protection films also ensures that our films will be able to cover production variations in automobiles that a template will be unable to accommodate. Our commitment to a PERFECT FIT is based on a highly labour intensive work process that ensures lasting protection that will last many years.

How long can Paintwork Protection Film last?

Do I need to wax or polish my car after installing Paint Protection Film?

- Paintwork Protection Film does not require any polishing or waxing of any kind after installation. It will retain its shine just with weekly washes.

Are there any visible seams after the film is applied?

- None at all. All our Paintwork Protection Films are custom measured and cut to each car and we do not use any pre-cut templates. The finish is totally seamless!

How does a Paint Protection Film differ from a coating?

- Silicon Dioxide(SiO2) coatings are a semi-permanent, cost-effective protection option against dust, debris and oxidisation that will require an annual renewal. Paint Protection Films are a robust almost permanent form of protection against, dust, debris, oxidisation and stone chips that will last anywhere from 5 to 10 years! Films are usually between 200% to 400% thicker than the original clear coat. Both coatings and Protection Film only require a weekly wash. Both don’t require any waxing or polishing but retain a very vibrant shine and clarity!

If I choose to use a Paint Protection Film, can I also get it coated?
- Absolutely! Our rugged and durable Paint Protection Films can be coated with our unique Signature Hydrophobic Coating(formulated specifically for paint protection films) for an additional layer of protection while leaving your vehicle with a level of shine that is breathtaking!
