    I've used the Oraguard 270 clear PPF, but only on flat surfaces. It goes on ok, but has to be a wet install if you want to avoid a cloudy texture underneath. Can't say much about wear and tear as I've never seen the product after install.

    Paint protection film is nothing like wrapping a car. We do both, and ppf is absolutely a different beast. It needs to be done wet - you cannot do it dry. And it’s not as easy as the videos make it out to be - mistakes get expensive too as the material is pretty wild in price. If you can, farm it out if you have no experience and he wants a full hood done - you’ll thank yourself, I assure you.

    Interesting stuff. Looking up some the the info others have posted, I found this:



    Can't speak on the guys technique... But the end result if pretty cool. I'm surprised I had not heard of it before. Cool stuff. I'm interested to see how much this stuff goes for.

    We sell a full hood on a truck installed for about $900-$1000.00 and that includes wrapping the edges underneath the hood, a lot of installers won’t do that. Our installed price is between $25.00-$30.00 per square foot. It’s good stuff - it’s saved a ton of damage to our vehicles from the roads up here. We mostly do high end vehicles with it.
