Can I install Lamin-x film myself? Customer Installation Disclaimer
Lamin-x Protective Films makes every effort to ensure that all of our pre-cut kits have been rechecked for fitment on each specific make and model advertised. However, a "professional quality" installation does require some acquired knowledge and mechanical ability, for which Lamin-x Protective Films cannot be responsible. We will provide instructions and tools with your order,and can provide assistance via telephone or e-mail correspondence. Also, if you would like, we can attempt to locate an installer in your general area, or you can also use our Dealer Locator to find an installer.
Can I install the paint protection myself?
Due to each kits size, complexity, and general PITA factor, the complete paint protection kits are best installed by professionals. However, it can be done by those customers who are mechanically inclined, patient, and have an extra person for help with handling the large pieces of film. We include installation instructions and application tools with your order, and, if problems or questions arise during your installation, you can call us - our customer service associates would be happy assist you. Also, if you would like, we can attempt to locate certified paint protection installer in your general area, or you can also use our Dealer Locator to find an installer.
What is the difference between Lamin-x and the cheaper headlight and taillight films I find?
This is the perfect "You get what you pay for" situation, and there are plenty of examples of low-budget films out there. The less expensive films that flood auction and e-commerce sites are typically a thinner, 3 mil sticker type of film. These films usually have a dull, hazy, orange-peel finish, with a thin layer of adhesive and offer no impact protection. Because of the materials used, they are also more difficult to install. Lamin-x film is the complete opposite of the cheap stuff: Glossy finish, 12 to 40 mils thick for impact protection, and designed to mold around complex curves. Most people find the cheaper sticker overlays a waste of time and money - don't be one of them!
Can I do a custom design with Lamin-x?
Custom installations can easily be done with any form of our film: pre-cut, sheet, or bulk roll. Simply cover the desired surface and trim to your liking by scoring the top layers of the Lamin-x. No need to cut all the way through the film, just score it and peel away the unwanted film.
What do I do if I find fogginess, air or water bubbles, surface texture, or scratches after my Lamin-x installation?
Once the film fully cures, most imperfections will disappear completely. Lamin-x is a porous (breathable) and self-healing polyvinyl film; small scratches, trapped moisture, and most bubbles will dissipate on their own. However, if you encounter a stubborn bubble, you can poke it with a sewing needle and push out the air or water. The hole will eventually close on its own.
How do I remove the film from lights?
Upon initial application, the film can be pulled up and reapplied numerous times until you are pleased with the results. However, after the film has settled (approximately 24-48 hours), the product is not considered reusable. To permanently remove the film, we recommend warming it with a heat gun, hair dryer, or simply by parking the car in the sunlight on a warm day. With the film warm, slowly peel the film from the lens surface. Any adhesive that may be left on the lens can be removed with a cleaner that is safe for use on an autos exterior. We recommend bug and tar remover.
