PPF Price?

Post by MM1963 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 7:55 pm

As after two weeks my front end has a few digs already, I thought I might have to consider having PPF done. Everyone seems to have it, but what sort of price is this to have done?

Depending on what part of the country you'd be looking at prices ranging from approx £1500 to £2500 for the full front end.

I had the whole front end including wings and rear wings done for £1250. Great job.

Wait until you've owned the car for a few years, they attract gravel like a magnet... Everywhere...

I even had a stone chip on the bootlid of an early V8S.

I'm sure the sticky tyres don't help.

Well PPF isn't without its own potential issues over time so after 5 years of the car being peppered I took the other option and recently had the nose cone fully taken apart and resprayed - perfect match to the Lunar Grey Metallic.

I spent just over a grand, but that included a repair to the driver's seat bolster and deep cleaning and re-dyeing both seats, along with a couple of touch ups done properly - i.e. thin paint layer, over fill with varnish, wait a week to harden, polish back down. Sprayed metallic stands vertical from the body, whereas brushing can easily leave it sitting flat and therefore looking darker.

Being a bit of a photo geek I have a slight aversion to plastic, be that in lenses, filters, spectacles (glasses to the younger generation), or PPF - I'm probably just old fashioned but hey!

I had brilliant service all round - this place in Farnham must be one of the best in the country and if you catch them on a good day their passion may lead to a tour of their very high tech facilities...

Exactly what I was thinking..respray seriously cheaper, and I've flat red so should be easier to match.

I have to say i saw a 1993 porsche and an aston in full ppf and they looked very impressive. Choice is clear which leaves it all new car shiny (not the technical term) or stealth which gives a satin finish

@mm1963 I’ve recently had full front end PPF plus side sills. Really happy with result, and reasonably priced.

Cost will depend on condition of existing paintwork (ie swirl marks etc) whether a correction detail is required beforehand. Surprising what the bright lights show up!!

I would recommend PPF
