Headlamp Protection Questions

Does the application of these kits adversely affect the illumination of my lights?

Our headlamp protection material blocks less that one tenth of one percent (.1%) of the light produced by your headlamps. You will not notice any difference in the brightness or performance of your lights.

What special care is required for your headlamp protection kits?

Our kits require no special care. The most important thing is to avoid using any abrasives to clean the lens covering. A soft cloth or sponge will work fine.

What if I take my car to a car wash?

Neither high-pressure nor brush type car washes will affect the kit once it has fully cured.

Is installation difficult? Can I do it myself?

The installation process is very simple. Anyone can apply these kits provided the written instructions that come with each X-Pel kit are followed closely.

The lights on my car are heavily contoured. Is your kit hard to install on this type of light or should I have them professionally installed?
Our headlamp protection material is extremely pliable and can easily be contoured over dome shaped surfaces. However, if you are not sure if you should attempt installation, you may wish to consult a professional installer in your area.

Paint Protection Questions

Can it be removed?

Yes. It can be removed easily and will not damage the paint. To remove the film, you must heat the surface to approximately 150F while working a corner of the film with your fingernail. Once you have enough of the material free from the surface to hold on to, slowly pull the film from the paint.

Is it really invisible?

The material is very difficult to see once it is properly applied. Most people will not even notice that it is on the car.

How long will it last?

Our product is warranted for 5 years, though the material has an average life span of about 7 years. In this way, it is much like the paint on your car. Whether or not the car is garaged and whether or not it is kept washed and waxed will make a big difference in the life span of the product.

How is the kit applied? Do you spray it on?

The plastic material comes to us in a large roll. Our machines cut the plastic into shapes designed to fit various parts of your car. These pieces are then applied to the vehicle in a very similar fashion to that of window tint. The pieces and the painted surface are wet with a solution and moved into position, then the solution is squeegeed away.

What if I want to take my car through a car wash?

Neither high-pressure nor brush type car washes will affect the kit once it has fully cured.

What happens when I wax my car?

You can do anything to the shield that you normally do to the rest of the car's finish. The shield will accept wax and polishes just as your paint does, and will last longer with regular applications.

What do I do if wax builds up on the edges of the kit when I wax my vehicle?

A soft, damp terrycloth towel, Q-Tip or soft brush will remove any wax build-up that may occur without harming the kit or your paint.
