To be fair PPF is very good - however, it has now been overtaken by this type of product:

As it sprayed on it has no edges like PPF and from what I am hearing from the industry the finish is better (and longer lasting) than the actual paint!

Thanks for the kind words Jon, it’s a lot easier to apply to the flat areas like the running boards etc, the front wheel arches can be very tricky, this has taken me a few attempts in the past...

The trick is to use plenty of water (sprayed) mixed with a tiny (I mean tiny) amount of baby shampoo...And don’t be afraid to completely soak the adhesive side of the PPF as you are peeling the backing paper off.

which brings me onto what is the "Paint protection film" that costs £610.75 from the Morgan Factory?

In many cases the companies (3M etc) will offer a pre-cut pack of segments that cover the main areas. I suspect it will be a package like this, check which areas it covers, some are just front panels, it might be worth covering the lower edges of the rear wings as well, mine have a few marks where they have saved the paint.

As an example - http://www.chipguard.co.uk/car-protection/morgan.html

Gary I would say it's a no brainer to protect that expensive re-spray, my previous Roadster had it from new by its first owner and after 50k miles it still looked like new in comparison to similar age cars which were peppered with stone chips


You need to be brave to tackle this job. I've done small areas, but I wouldn't try a big panel, especially curved. This year I intend to add it along the top edge of the rear panel where the easy up hood seal rubs the paint. I just haven't been able to get a clear run at it yet........

Tarka has the Morgan applied film, it works well on the front, but it is less successful on the running boards as it can be easily scuffed by shoes getting in and out.

The front is marked in places, so obviously working, but the Ngenco stuff looks good. I wonder how much it costs! Has anyone any experience of it?

Carrotious, this is what you get...







By coincidence, during our last visit to the Factory last year to see our Roadster in build, we just caught it in the PDI bay having the PP film applied, it took two of them about 2 hrs and they were specifically visiting that day to do a batch of finished cars

Many thanks for all your comments. I am in the process of arranging for a contact of Beamish Morgan to fit it for me. Will update once it is complete.
