The Best Paint Protection Film – XPEL
Next, the upper part of the bumper was prepped.  The same methods as used on the fenders were used here.
Next, the cut material is laid down.
A lot of rough fitting and thought goes into this part, especially on a complicated part like the bumper. Here Koosha figures out how to tackle all the curves and edges.  Koosha let Jeff (who was shooting the install) try his hand at laying down the film..  it did not go well!
Lots of steam was used to stretch the film over the bumpers curves.
With steam and a squeegee, the film is slowly worked down.
The film was cut in a few areas where it was unavoidable to get rid of wrinkles.
Here is Koosha putting on the finishing touches on our bumper by heating and tucking the film under the edges.


  1. this seems excessively long for an article, especially after the first few pages it felt very repetitive. The beauty shots on the last page show the amazing quality of his work and it is perfection, I just feel that the article could have been half the pages and still given us a good idea of how the process goes.

  2. it varies by car but to cover ALL the painted surfaces and aero on a C7 like we did you’re probably going to spend $6,000. just a a front end kit covering the bumper, hood, mirrors, front fenders and rocker panels is around $3,000. Yes, it may seem like an excessively long article but the process took 4 ENTIRE days to complete.. The difference is in the details. I never appreciated how much work goes into one of these wraps till I had to sit there and watch Koosha do it. We’ve wrapped a few of our project cars and none of them have been done this well.
