    For those that have a paint protection film. How noticeable is the color difference after you wax or polish the areas that are not covered. I have had the clear bra on a white car and it was not hardly noticeable. However on colors like red, black or green? Being you can't wax and polish the paint under the film how is the match after waxing the rest of the car?

    I have it on my 09 SRT TorRed. I can tell it is on there but nobody else has ever noticed it unless I pointed it out to them. I tried to put the same film on our Black Pearl Jeep and ended up removing it because it was too noticeable.

    On our Sublime Chally, the film is hardly noticeable.
    There is a junction line between the film and the fender that is visible, but significantly diminishes when the car is clean and polished. It's the first car that I've had this done. My objective is to avoid the road rash that is inevitable if the car is driven at highway speeds in the interstate. It's a compromise.
    BTW, we wrapped our satin black hood, and it looks fine too.

    expel....there is no color difference.....depending on the type of wax it does like to leave a nice white line on the edge of the expel.....i recommend against liquid gold for this issue....zaino does much better

    you will see line across the door pretty harsh.....its just a big flat open space....otherwise rest of bra is almost invisible

    i did 1/3rd hood....no reason to do more

    Suntek on my pitch black. Did whole front clip. No difference in appearance between door and fender. I noticed a bit of orange peel in the expel, so I chose suntek. Those are probably the best ppf on market currently.

    My 3M guy told me that a white car is the worst as older film would turn yellow over time and the car being white you notice the yellow tint more on white than any other color car. He did say the newer film is better but not perfect. I only wish I had done the entire hood and fender as the wax gets on that line and is a pain as I add a layer of polish every 30 days so that line gets old. Was almost 2X the price to do the entire hood and front vs 1/3 the hood and front and I could not see that $$ for film.
