Anyone know if this is something you put on yourself, or should you have it done professionally?

Kappasphere.com has the following to say: The patented acrylic adhesive will withstand lubricants, oils, UV rays, and unlike the competition, also contains an anti-corrosion polymer which inhibits rust and mold growth. Our new formulation now allows you to handle the film aggressively without leaving finger prints or stretch marks in the adhesive – even on black vehicles!
Unless you are familiar with this type of product you may want to let a professional handle it. Not to mention all of the prep work to your vehicle before application can even be started. I have posted the link below for you just in case you didn't have it or for others following the thread.

Here to help, sorry I messed that up earlier with it's release. Something in the back of my mind was telling me to check the website. Instead I just blurted out the first thing out of my mouth. That will teach me.

I didnt get the Kappa one, but I did get the 3m clear bra. I can take pics of that if you would like to see it. He not only put it on the hood but on the back of my mirrors too....:D

I watched the video posted on either here or Solstice forum on how to install and it didn't look too complicated. There was one thing to keep in mind, moisture...that was the key to making it move into place and the guy on the video used a spray bottle w/ a little joy in it. The guy even demo'd in the event you have to pull the piece back up and reapply it...didn't look hard at all. I think the hardest part is when you need to stretch it around the corners but again the video made it look easy, but I am sur ethat part takes practice. You need only a spray bottle with water and joy in it and a sponge to wipe out the bubbles. After install let it sit for an hour or two and dry. I would say though, if you aren't a DIY to probably have a pro do it!! You couldn't see a damn thing of it unless you were right upon it and knew it was there!

That's only to show you the area that is covered- clear doesn't photograph very well.

My question tho is: is it a high-gloss finish like the paint or is it more matte. Matte finish may not be noticeable in photographs but when you get close to the vehicle it is UGLY!

Tony,

Is it something the competent DYIer can do, or should they seek a professional? I know it is still somewhat new and some parts of the country don't have a professional installer nearby.

Thanks!

The installation can be performed by a DYIer. (I would recommend a second person to help you hold the parts as they come off the backing paper) The kits come with an installation video that shows you step by step how the material is applied. There is also a teflon squeege in the kit that is used to apply the material and won't scratch it or your paint job.

The material is very high gloss finish, just like your paint. The nice thing about the Kappasphere product is that it has a very smooth finish unlike the 3m product which has more orange peel.

I've been wondering about the finish and ease of application. Your info has also helped me decide between the 3M and the KAPPA.
