First time doing Xpel matte PPF

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I did my first matte ppf which was with xpel matte ppf. Everything went very well but after 2 week when I did a check up on the car everything looked fine but near the mirrors I noticed a little spot. The car had a factory matte paint. If that makes a diffrent.

Our weather is a bit different down here in Hotlanta.  We had 97 days in a row this summer over 90 degrees.  After nearly twenty years doing PPF, I've seen what a nightmare removals can be on ordinary paint, hours and hours of scraping and adhesive remover soaking the glue.  I'll never have to worry about doing that to a matte surface.

I would never put film on a matte paint job, removals will be an issue since you can't use adhesive remover on those finishes.  

Actually it depends on what ppf you are using

why the matte paint needs a matte ppf ? if with clear ppf, will be different effect ?

Gloss film will turn the paint to a gloss look.
