Frequently Asked Questions


Is it obvious to see Paint Protection Film on a car?

Not at all. In fact, Tint a Car’s Paint Protection Film has the highest optical clarity which means it’s virtually invisible to the naked eye. It’s essentially a clear coating that is applied to your paintwork, so it actually enhances the gloss look of your car!

Can I simply get one panel of my car protected with this product?

Of course! Whether you’d like simply your side mirror casings protected or your whole car, the Tint a Car team are here to help. No job is too small, we just want you to feel protected while out on the road.

What happens if the Paint Protection Film gets a scratch or chip to it?

No worries at all. Believe it or not, the technology of the Paint Protection Film is ‘self-healing’ which means any minor scratches will disappear by themselves, keeping the film and your vehicle finish looking new.

How is the Paint Protection Film applied to my car?

To ensure the perfect fit, each piece is computer generated and trimmed precisely to your vehicle’s factory specs. It’s then applied just like a window tint would be and is easily removable also, by a trained professional, with no damage to the paintwork. 

Now that I have Paint Protection Film applied, do I need to care for my car any differently?

With Tint a Car’s Paint Protection Film, you can wash, wax and care for your car just like you normally would. Whatever vehicle you drive, a sedan, SUV, ute or truck, our Paint Protection Film provides the best option to help keep your vehicle in prime condition.

Does the paint protection film stain or go yellow over time?

No, our Paint Protection Film is premium quality and will NOT discolour or stain. It provides an almost invisible clear coat with superior optical clarity that matches a new car’s finish.
