New 250 Cup winglet PPF protection kit.


Recommended Posts

Just thought I would give everyone with severe stone chip issues on the winglets of their beloved cars a heads up. I've made a template and I'm getting it cut out by Nick at Aliath who creates hundreds of these specialist PPF kits for just about any car. I've used his kits for a for years now on many of my cars and had no issues as its of a high quality material . After a discussion with him we decided to make a template off my car and he will be adding them to his already large list of kits. Easy to put on and good protection. He's probably gonna do it in a matt black wrap or a matt finish regular kit. I've attached photos of the issue and the template I made so he can get a perfect cut.

 

If anyone is interested ill let you know as soon as he's made them.

I found the easy way to apply them was with a small amount of heat, air dryer but I wet them up first... The black PPF is a little more tricky but they look fine on mine.

Many Thanks! It definitely provides some protection, no doubt.
Have you thought about getting the template bigger so can wrap the edge as well?

Secondly, can I have contact of Nick at Aliath ? I am interested to get the similar thing in future.

Well you could take it right up to the edge by heat and stretching as you go but the black PPF is a little more difficult to get right on the edge, soo the only way would be to remove the winglet and fold the PPF behind.

If it was easy to remove the winglet then slightly over sized PPF and folded over the edge would surely give an outstanding finish.

The small print.

My comments and observations are my own, invariably "tongue in cheek", and definitely, sarcastic in nature. Therefore, do not take my advice, suggestions, observations or posts seriously or personally and remember if you do, do anything, that I may have suggested, then you have done this based solely on your own decision to do so and therefore you acknowledge responsibility and accountability (I know, in this modern world these are the hardest things for you to accept) for your actions and indemnify me of any influence, responsibility, accountability, or liability, in what you have done. In other words, you did it, so suffer the consequences on your own!

Thanks for the link, I would order them.

Out of interest, is it difficult to remove the winglets? 
I checked that only two screws, but not sure whether there is factory adhesive tape in use to fix the winglet or not.
