Removing the protective film from a car hood can be a bit tricky, but here are the steps you can follow to do it effectively:

How to Remove Protective Film from the Car Hood


Clean the surface

Before removing the film, make sure the car hood is clean and dry. Use a mild soap and water to clean the surface and a microfiber towel to dry it.

Heat the film

Use a hair dryer or heat gun to apply heat to the film. This will soften the adhesive and make it easier to remove. Hold the hair dryer or heat gun about 6 inches away from the film and move it around constantly to avoid overheating the surface.

Start at the corner

Once the film is heated, start peeling it from the corner. Use your fingernail or a plastic scraper to lift the edge of the film.

Peel slowly

Peel the film slowly and steadily, pulling it back over itself at a 180-degree angle. If you encounter resistance, apply more heat and continue peeling.

Remove adhesive residue

After you've removed the film, there may be some adhesive residue left on the surface of the car hood. You can remove this residue by using a solvent like rubbing alcohol or adhesive remover. Apply the solvent to a clean microfiber towel and rub the residue gently until it comes off.

Clean the surface again

Once you've removed the film and adhesive residue, use soap and water to clean the surface again, and then dry it with a clean microfiber towel.

Following these steps, you should be able to safely and effectively remove the protective film for car hood surface.
