I am happy and excited to announce Ultimate Paint Protection is an official sponsor of Caterham’s 2018 Motorsport season.

As a specialist paint protection film installer for the Caterham Seven, we are very proud and excited to be associated with such an iconic marque. As UPP is the preferred provider to Caterham Cars Ltd for PPF products it is a partnership that I am excited to see flourish into the future.

All of our kits for the Caterham’s ,like all other cars, are pre-cut to fit each model and panel precisely, allowing you to protect your Caterham regardless of its model or year.

We will be in the paddock throughout the year supporting the race series, if you can’t make [...]

We are very excited to announce we have recently become an authorised dealer and installer for Clearplex windscreen protection film. This is a product that all car owners will benefit from with additional safety, protection and environmental properties to give you peace of mind.

As much as it is a great enhancement to passenger cars, it is a huge benefit for commercial vehicles [...]

All of these questions have a single common denominator, see a qualified technician to address all of them.  Application of Paint Protection Film is, like Window Tinting, in theory straight forward, however it is the application of that theory which is best left to a trained technician to achieve the best results.

Prior to applying the film you need to  perform a surface prep on all areas where the film is being applied, this is using clay bar and solution to clean and remove all dirt, debris and degreasing the paint surface.  The film is “pre cut” on special plotters in most cases to fit specific cars, if not, cutting film to fit a car normally means cutting on the car which is very dangerous to say the least. You then use a slip solution to adhere the film to the car, this solution works with the special adhesives used to ensure a perfect contact [...]
