Q: How much does it cost to have 3M™ VentureShield™ Paint Protection Film installed on my vehicle?

A: There are many makes and models of cars, trucks, RVs and boats. On personal vehicles ClearBra paint protection film is most often used to cover the front portion of the hood. The film is also commonly applied to painted bumpers, mirror backs, truck bed rails, door handle inserts, door edges, rocker panels, mirror backs, wheel openings, etc. Any painted surface of a car, truck, van, SUV, RV, boat or motorcycle that is susceptible to bug damage and rock chips can be covered with paint protection film. Since the amount of film required and difficulty of application will vary by vehicle model, we suggest giving us a call or scheduling a consultation with one of our installers to provide a detailed estimate of time and pricing.

Q: Can I install ClearBra paint protection film myself?

A: We strongly recommend that ClearBra paint protection film be installed by a professionally trained installer. These are skilled installers in applying the film around compound curves, challenging grillwork, wheel openings, bumpers and all other areas on vehicles.

Q: Can ClearBra paint protection film be used on headlights, foglights or windshields?

A: In the United States, Department of Transportation’s safety standards do not allow for any film to be placed on headlamps.  Other countries may or may regulate. We may still install any application of ClearBra film or colored film at any consumer’s request but after notation of local laws.

A: Yes, the film may be installed on motorcycles, ATVs and dirt bikes.

Q: How is ClearBra paint protection film maintained?

A: Once applied, refrain from washing the vehicle in an automated car wash for 24 hours. Washing after that time should present no problem.  Follow the care instructions on the warranty card.

Q: What is the best way to clean ClearBra paint protection film?

A: Soap and water is recommended.  We do not recommend using *isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.   *Note: When using solvents, extinguish all ignition sources, including pilot lights and follow the manufacturer’s precautions and directions for use.

Q: Can I use wax over ClearBra paint protection film?

A: Yes. Every time you wax your paint, wax your film. When waxing the vehicle, some wax may build up along the film edges. This can easily be removed when dry with a soft cloth, such as a 3M™ High Performance Cloth. Do not use pigmented or abrasive waxes, polishes or rubbing compounds on the film.

Q: Will ClearBra paint protection film harm the painted surface if the film is removed?

A: If the film is properly applied to a vehicle with fully cured paint, it can be removed, usually in one piece, without damaging painted surface beneath the film.

Q: Can ClearBra paint protection film be applied over a vehicle that has had the paint touched up?

A: We recommend that any repainted surfaces on your vehicle be professionally painted and fully cured before applying paint protection film. If you have touched up scratches or chips with a tube of “touch-up” paint and then apply paint protection film over it, the film will protect that area until it is removed. If the paint protection film is removed, it is possible that the paint around the non-professional touch-up paint could peel off.

Q: Will the paint smear if ClearBra paint protection film is applied over a newly painted vehicle?

A: The paint on a newly painted vehicle must be cured according to manufacturer’s recommendations. Your body shop should be able to provide you with this information.

Q: Can you paint or apply a clearcoat over the ClearBra paint protection film?

A: No, this is not recommended and is at your own risk.

Q: Can I cover the whole vehicle with ClearBra paint protection film?

A: It is possible, because ClearBra paint protection film film is available in a 60″ width that allows full hood coverage.
