  1. I know folks doing ppf on hundreds of dealer cars per month in the new England area, so they must be dealing with different dealerships. I respect your opinion and we'll have to agree to disagree.
  2. Actually, many dealerships love it because they make money off of film three times. 1. Installed with the initial sale of the new unit 2. No reconditioning costs on trade in if customer brings car baclk to them 3. They get to markup the car on the pre-owned lot because it has film (or they easily remove it and charge to reinstall on pristine paint)

    Applying PPF profitable?

    @Maestro Sam, I see you are planning on using the DAP. PM me your contact details and I will get you in touch with your rep. He/She can answer all of these questions (and more) for you.
  5. XPEL also offers steeply discounted b-grade materials for projects like these. Just fill out the form here and your regional rep will be in contact with details. https://www.xpel.com/become-a-dealer-professional-installers
  6. it's hard to tell the angle of the drop offs on the hood, but it looks like youre going to want to seem it at the top of those ridges. I don't like seaming things, but when there is a defined body line to hide it on, sometimes the juice isn't worth the squeezee on a hood like this.
  7. EXACTLY!!!! Don't overthink it. The reality is that most of the debris comes from within the crevices of the car as opposed to being airborn. You could install in a paint booth and still fight debris. It has more to do with proper prep and cleaning than anything else.

    Water bubbles In PPF

    Either of those squeegees should work, so it really is going to come down to technique. Squeegee pressure is one facet, but there's also squeegee angle, overlapping strokes, working in sections, viewing from different angles, addressing bodylines, etc.
  9. @European, once the adhesive is exposed to air, it starts drying out, so it will be a small miracle if you can get it to stick at all, much less without visible distortion in the adhesive. I'd take it back to the installer, as they'll have the best chance at fixing it and will be able to replace it if they can't repair it. Most installers won't replace a piece if it has been tampered with.

    2019 chevy custom

    @wade_660 / @alberts316, @PoopcornPoppers' truck is a 1500 with the Custom package. The upcoming HD's are a little different (by "different" I mean uglier).

    @kikeb, look under the "XPEL Europe" region and you'll find whole car patterns.
  12. I've never heard of such a thing as only offering 60" rolls!? You can purchase a slitter, but that could be somewhat expensive if you aren't doing a lot of volume.

    Avoid it happening

    No need to let anything sit for days. Impossible to run a scalable business if you can't move cars through in a single day. The key to success on kits is proper alignment. Simply scan as you complete each section so that you can fix any alignment errors before the film is adhered to strongly. If you happen to miss anything, it will be revealed by the compressor so that you can fix as necessary. Bulk installs can have lifted edges or adhesion issues as well, so I would recommend these techniques for all types of application.
