Thread: Protective film

  1. #1 Default Protective film 
    How hard is it to peel off? Reason I ask is I had a body painted up and cut it out the other day and could not peel any corner or anything up to get the film off. I am sure the guy that did the paint left it on. Is it hard to get it started? Thanks

    I use a small hobby knife to start one corner. Once started very easy to peel

    I use an air hose to start off. Sounds funny but if you point it at a corner of the body straight on it will lift the film for you so you can peel it back.
