How much does installation of Headlight Protection Film cost?
These kits are designed for the DIY installer.
Professional installation will not generally save you any money. Installers generate their profit from installation costs, not the cost
of film. They prefer to work with the film they regularly use and we
recommend you go with their preferred film. If you are still planning to
have your Protection Film installed by a professional, we recommend
certified paint protection installers NOT Window Tint installers. This is not
window tint, it requires a different skill set and you will generally
not see good results from their installations.
Do you offer a warranty?
We offer a limited warranty of 3 years. When installed by the DIY
individual we warranty that the headlight protection film will not fade, turn
purple or change color. When professionally installed we guarantee
that the cover to not fade, peel, crack, bubble or turn purple when
installed by a licensed professional.
What is the legal light tint shade for my state?
Clear Protection films are legal.
Colored or tinted light protectors may not be legal for street use on primary lighting.
