My hobbies are outdoor pursuits , mountain biking - hiking etc.
So I'm constantly loading stuff into the boot and was worried about scratches on the rear load lip.

So , I applied a strip of ppf ( 3m Ventureshield )
It's a paint protection film of decent quality. It's clear , so it's not seen easily and very tough !
It went really well , as a first attempt.....

That looks really great. I've thought about doing that on my door sill plates. Is that a wet or dry application?

Hi , the film is supplied on a peel off backing. But the bodywork needs to be totally clean , smooth and wiped with an alcoholic type liquid to ensure its clean.
Then peel the film off it's backing, and spray film and bodywork plentifuly and carefully put in place.
The spray will kind of hold itself in place , then spray more on the outside of the film and use a credit card to smooth out... very carefully and slowly.
It is messy and very soapy whilst you are doing it.
Have a towel to hand , it's dry film that is applied with loads of spray on soapy water.
I used a drop of washing up liquid and a litre of water.
And patience is a virtue here. 😊
