3M Clear Bra Paint Protection Film NOLA

What Is Clear Bra Paint Protection?

We are 3M Ceritified Installers of 3M Scotchgard Pro Series Paint Protection, the Clearest film in existence. Just like window tint, there are many Paint Protection Films on the market today. Some better than others and some just plain terrible. Remember to do your research and it will always bring you back to Snappy Tint for all your Paint Protection needs.

3M, the pioneers of paint protection have been producing this stuff from the very beginning when it was first applied to the helicopter blades during the Vietnam War. While the product has evolved over the last few decades, other brands have attempted to beat 3M’s product, but never achieve.

How can paint protection go bad? Well just like window tint, it is always exposed to the sun. The film dries out, becomes very brittle and start to crack as is shrinks across the painted surface. Granted, it technically is still doing its job, but can start to appear yellow, hazy, scaly, and eventually look like this if it is not replaced in a timely manner.


How expensive is it to remove this film when it looks this bad?

– Trust me, you don’t want to know, but let’s just say if we were willing to do it, your looking at about 8-10 hours of labor. If you have film on your car that looks like this, or similar, we need to see it IN PERSON before we provide any ESTIMATE for such service.

We sometimes have to remove film that has been applied for less than one year. In this photo you can see the noticeable edge of the film on this white car. This car is a 2014 model Lexus that was purchased brand new, in 2014. This photo was taken one day after purchase in our service bay at Snappy Tint. Just by sitting on the lot for a few months, this film has already taken a beating.



Ugly, isn’t it. You paid $85k for this Lexus and the dealership gives you this? Clearly that dealership is not taking advantage of 3M’s new paint protection film, Scotchgard Pro, the CLEAREST film on the market.

Below are some photos of the same car a few hours later after the “old”
film was removed and replaced with the 3M Scotchgard Pro Paint Protection Film. At most angles, the edge of the film can NOT be seen.

The easiest way to spot this film is very up close at a 90 degree angle, as shown here in the photo below.


Below is a mirror of a 2002 Acura RSX. This car was never treated with paint protection film and just see how much damage has occurred to the mirrors. If a standard Hood, fender, and mirror kit were installed for only $299 in the beginning, NONE of this damage would have affected the paint in the first place. Now, if you want your mirrors or other parts of your car to be repaired by a professional automotive painting company, it will cost you 3 times the price of having the paint protection installed.
