ABOUT OUR KITS
All our kits are made from XPEL™ ULTIMATE PLUS Paint Protection Film - the best film we sell.
Your order will be professionally produced using the finest digital patterns in the industry, carefully inspected, and well packaged for shipping.
Any INSTALLATION TOOLS you may need are available to purchase separately.
ABOUT XPEL HOOD KITS
MINI HOOD KITS are intended to be a quick and easy to install option giving you basic coverage at a great price. These kits sit 1/8" back of the edge and do not wrap around the edges.
Think of these kits as an alternative to lexan bug deflectors. Mini Hood Kits are not available for all vehicles.
REGULAR HOOD/FENDER KITS have extra material and are made to wrap around the leading and side edges. This gives a more finished look and protects the leading edges. Be sure to thoroughly clean these areas before installation.
If you prefer your kit to not wrap, you can request that in the NOTES BOX in your shopping cart.
Only Hoods & Fender Kits are made to wrap - all other kits like bumpers, mirrors, and other kits are designed to fit 1/8" back of the edges.
ABOUT XPEL FULL BODY PANEL KITS
FULL HOOD, FENDER AND MIRROR KITS give you full panel protection without a visible line where the kit stops. One major advantage of full panel coverage is that your vehicle will not even look like it has PPF installed.
Hood edges are designed to wrap around the front and side edges. The top edge is very difficult to access to wrap, so that edge is a precision fit in most cases. Full fender edges wrap in where they meet the engine bay for a finished look.
FULL FENDER KITS - NO FULL HOOD KIT LISTED
Some vehicles have Full Fender Kits available but no Full Hood Kit available. Generally there are three reasons:
- The hood has no vents, ports, badges or other obstructions that need to be cut out, so bulk film is the best and least expensive way to do a full hood.
Simply measure your hood and purchase Bulk Film by-the-foot in addition to the Full Fender Kit.

- Some very new vehicles have limited kits available initially. Digital Patterns are posted as they are developed by XPEL, beginning with the most popular areas of coverage. A more extensive pattern library is usually available later. If you have a complex hood with vents, ports, badges or other obstructions that cant' be completed with bulk film, please check back to see if a Full Hood Kit is available later.
If you can't wait, you could see a XPEL Authorized Installer who has the skills and experience to install bulk film, cutting the film on the vehicle without damaging the paint.
- In rare cases, the hood is wider than 60" in both directions. The maximum width that Paint Protection Film is manufactured is 60 inches wide.
OTHER FULL BODY PANELS are available for many vehicles. These kits are designed with a precision-fit 1/8" back of the body panel edges.
It is possible to add wrapping edges to some of these kits. For example door kits can have 0.5" for wrapping added to the bottom and back edge. We can do this on request. This may involve extra cost, so please contact us if you want to look into this option.
