Can I Still Put Clear Bra Over Rock Chips On My Car?

The answer is yes you can, however, it is not going to hide it but on the plus side, your car will be protected from future rock chips adding onto your vehicle. Paint chips caused by rocks in the road can be a pain to look at. Rock chips are almost impossible to avoid and that is why it is important to get your vehicle protected with paint protection film before it's too late. Covering the paint chips with touch up paint can be one solution but it's not the best without having to sand it down and getting resprayed. fixing the problem with touch up paint can ease the look of the chip, but it still be a bit noticeable if you look for it. Adding too much touch up paint can leave a raised area which can actually make it worse when installing clear bra over it. It will actually highlight the problematic area with a little white ring around it which looks like a small air bubble because it creates a tiny air pocket around the indented damage. If the rock chips on your car becomes very bothersome, we recommend getting the chip touched up the correct way. Getting it sanded own and resprayed. Photos below show rock chips on the paint before and after.

Caring for your Paint Protection Film (PPF)

Aftercare for your paint protection film can be as easy caring for the paint of your car as you normally do. After having the film installed on your car. Make sure to wait at least 48 hours after to wash your vehicle. After installation, there will be some visible water bubbles under the film. This is normal and will go away once the film has cured.

WASHING THE FILM
- Wash regularly as you normally would with a soft terry cloth or micro-fiber towels on the film.
- Avoid pressure washing on the exposed film edges.
- Do not wipe or scrub the film in direct sunlight or when the film is hot.
- Try not to use any abrasive cleaners on the film. It can dull the film overtime.

WAXING THE FILM
- It is recommended to wax the film. This will condition the film and help make it last longer.
- Traditional automotive waxes can provide a small level of protection against contamination from road oils, diesel smoke, pollen and pollution that can cause discoloration and discoloration of the film.
-Do not use waxes that contain dyes, and other harsh chemicals such as naphtha or kerosene may discolor or dull the film over time.
- If the care has exposed edges of the clear bra, be sure to tape off the edge so no wax can get under the edge

CLEANING THE FILM
- Use a liquid-base car wash soap with an extra soft cloth or mitt to clean the car
- When using a pressure washer, keep at least 36" away from the surface and be sure to avoid the film's edges.
- Bird droppings and bug splats should be removed as quickly as possible with lukewarm water to prevent any staining on the film
- Do not use any solvents or paint thinners when cleaning the film.
- Avoid using any powder-based detergent or degreaser on the film.
- Try not to rub excessively or use excessive force when cleaning or drying.

PROTECTION
- Just like the paint of your car, you can use sealants, waxes and even coatings to protect the film to give it that extra protection and extends the film's life span.
- Swirls marks and hair line scratches will self-heal in matters of minutes. Use heat or hot water to pour over those fine lines and watch the disappear.
