Pre-cut or hand cut PPF? Cannot sui bian la (anyhow) okay, we all know getting PPF is not like buying bubble tea 😉

 

To make your life easier, we have summarized the pros (✅) and cons (❌) below:

 

Factors to consider Pre-cut Hand Cut
No exposed edges = looks better 🤩
No dirt line
Quicker application 
Requires highly skilled installer 
Need to remove body panels during installation 
Non-availability of pre-cut film

 

Let’s see, both pre-cut and hand cut PPF are quite balanced in terms of pros and cons. 

 

However, we believe everyone’s car condition differs and thus, may need either a pre-cut or hand cut PPF, or even BOTH!

 

Take note!

If you decide to go for a hand cut PPF, do check that your installer has a digital cutter. Cutting using a blade next to your car paint can be quite a heart attack!
