Paint Protection Film

LUSTR offers high quality installation of Paint Protection Film (PPF) in Chicago. Using the same attention to detail as our premium car detailing services, we provide clients with the highest quality in fit and finish.
Paint Protection Film is the best way to protect your vehicle's paint from road debris and prevent rock chips.  PPF is the only product that's irreplaceable when it comes to protecting your car's finish.  Nothing else can look so good yet protect the paint so well!  PPF is not invincible though.  If something too sharp, large or fast hits the paint it can definitely rip through the film.  Even so, this is rare and when it does happen the paint usually remains perfectly fine.
We do our best to wrap all edges and use as few pieces as possible for the cleanest install.  The self-healing property of Paint Protection Film are a huge bonus as it keeps the paint swirl free and easier to clean.  As if that wasn't enough, both clear and matte film are available so we can protect glossy and satin surfaces!
Whether you want to protect your daily driver or your exotic for years to come, we can help with any recommendations and a great install.  Contact us with any questions or to schedule some dates.
