I see bubbles in my PPF will that go away?

As mentioned above the first short period the film is curing, you may notice some bubbles or a slight haze in the film but that is nothing to worry about as the moisture will evaporate through the pores of the film in the next 2-3 weeks. Bubbles can appear and disappear due to the wet method of installation along with weather and temperature changes.

How long should I wait to wash my car after Clear Bra or PPF installation?

Please do not wash your car in the first 7 days after installation, the moisture inbetween the film and the paint surface is still evaporating, the edges are also drying so that the adhesive can stick to the paint correctly. The use of soaps, car washes, pressure washers will hinder the edges to set correctly.

Once the film has cured, you are able to wash the car as normal (if possible use the two bucket method and a microfiber wash mitt), if using a pressure washer insure that you keep the spray lance at least 3 feet away from the surface of the film especially the edges as the pressure may lift the edge of the film
