Why install PPF on the headlights?
PPF or clear bra, as it’s known in the industry, is an extra layer of protection for your lights on the open road. It’s an expensive business replacing cracked headlamps and fog lamps so it makes complete sense to protect them with an invisible protective covering before you even roll a new car out of the showroom! It can be applied to any light on your car from the brake lights to indicator lights to fog lights and headlights.
