Yes! The key to our PPF being easy to DIY is due to our simplified templates. They have been specifically designed to align quickly and easily, removing all the fiddly parts of installing.
You will also receive specific video tutorials that take you step by step through fitting your kit.
We recommend you remove the film no longer than 12 months after the warranty expires. If you remove the film within this time frame, it comes off easily with the assistance of heat.
Our films come in a range of 1yr, 5yr or 10yr warranties depending on the level you select.
The biggest difference between Cape and Advance is their tear resistance and self healing properties. They have different adhesive and top coats, therefore different life expectancies.
Cape is designed to be installed for a trip, then removed. Think of it as a sacrificial layer, it’s there to be damaged.
Advance film is for those that want quality PPF at DIY prices. This film is far stronger and will comfortably last for years of travel.
We all know the Aussie heat can be unforgiving! We have tried and tested our films in Australia over the past 8 years in tough conditions, and we know it can take the brunt of the heat and UV.
Not only will the film repel up to 97% of UV Rays but more importantly it eliminates oxidisation which is what more commonly affects the appearance of your paintwork fading long-term.
Advance film is far more durable in the heat than Cape, we highly recommend only Advance film is fitted to horizontal surfaces.
We do recommend that if you live in a harsh climate such as WA or NT, that you upgrade to the BushWrapz Advance film. This is due to the harsh water.
If we don't have your snorkel listed as an option on our product page, that means we don't have it as a pre-cut option. You will need to customise the fender template to suit your snorkel. Same goes for clear view mirrors.Don't stress! We provide you with tutorial videos on how to do this.
Full bonnets and bumpers are such large and technical panels to install. They are not panels that we would recommend someone attempting themselves at home due to the multiple curves they have.If you would like BushWrapz applied to these panels, contact your nearest installer for a quote on these.
BushWrapz PRO needs to be installed by a professional installer due to the templates being slightly different. Being that BushWrapz PRO is a 10 year warranty film and ultimately going to be on your vehicle for 10+ years, these templates have been created to ensure a very custom and seamless look where possible. This requires bulking and trimming, therefore, not something we would recommend anyone DIY-ing.

Our last vehicle had a lot of fine scratches on the doors when we sold it, which really affected the resale value. We chose Bushwrapz (Advance) on our new Ranger instead of a ceramic coating as it is far more likely to prevent stone chips. The wife assisted me in doing the installation ourselves, and it was easier than anticipated, but I can imagine that there could be problems if you don't follow the instructional videos. The film is difficult to notice unless you are looking for it so the paint work always looks great. We will be doing lots of off-road adventures, so the bushwrapz gives us peace of mind to prevent minor damage. Definitely recommend.
My installation tip:
The bubbles can be difficult to see on white paint but a good strategy is to shine a bright torch across the paint (in a dark environment) so they can be easily identified and removed.
That's awesome Lance, thanks for the tips! Sounds like you're prepared to have a blast for 2024!
First time installing the PPF and other than a little trimming out the flares and some bubbles, it came up looking great. Must say prepping and making sure the panels are spotless is a must. Otherwise you'll spend more time trying to remove the dirt off the ppf than putting it on. Would definately do it again when I need to replace it in future.
