What is Paint Protection Film?

Paint protection film, or clear bra, is a thin layer of clear urethane that can be applied to areas of your vehicle (bumpers, mirrors, side panels) that are at high risk for abrasions, scuffs, and other minor damages. It is nearly invisible and will protect your vehicle’s exterior from permanent damage from rocks, bugs, salt, and minor collisions.

Why Should I Get Paint Protection Film?

All vehicle owners want to keep their paint looking fresh and new and paint protection film is an ideal way.  Not only will it preserve the original finish, but it will preserve resale value when you sell the vehicle down the road.  Minor damages, scuffs, and scrapes are pretty much inevitable, but with paint protection film you can take a proactive approach to protecting your vehicle. For example, it can help prevent damage from the salt on roadways during winter months and from scratches by shopping carts. Those things may seem minor, but paint protection film can end up saving you hundreds of dollars on touch-up work and minor damage repairs.

How is Paint Protection Film Installed?

Here at Columbus Car Audio & Accessories, we use a computer cut film system to cut the film pieces to fit your exact vehicle make and model.
