getting into PPF ?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys firstly id like to say ive got a tint shop in sydney aus, basically the off season is near and im scared.

how would I go about getting into PPF ? any tips and tricks , do I need a plotter or can it be done by hand ?

im a sponge here so soak me in any info you have !

I need to look at other services for my shop to offer because the bills dont stop in the off peak season as much as we would like them too haha !

first thing is to either get some training or get with a shop that does it. Obviously its going to be harder in your location, but distance shouldn't stop you. It can be done both by hand or kit. The one tool that I use that I feel might be the overlooked is the steamer. This website has a wealth of knowledge as well as xpels.

I was trained on kits, and can cut my own using the plotter, but I still feel I have a lot of improvement even after 6 years. The guys that bulk cut are amazing...I'd love to see it done. I havent done it day in and day out, but Ive got easily 400+ under my belt (mainly Nissans). I would still consider a course to take, but ppf is certainly not a huge part of my biz. I just did a 2010 F150 King Ranch today though.

TintJunkie, come visit us right up the road in San Antonio for advanced training. When you can get cars done quickly, without a lot of headaches, it makes more sense for it to become a bigger part of your business. The margins are much better than tint if you can keep your install times down.
