Protect your vehicle from scratches, chips and bug guts without affecting its sleek style. Husky Shield guards stick directly to your car's surface and are virtually invisible. The clear urethane film is super durable and will not crack, shrink or yellow. It's also breathable, allowing your paint to age naturally beneath it so that you won't have faded or mismatched areas.


Hood Guard

The Husky Shield hood guard offers superior protection from bug stains and paint chips. It ensures that your paint job will remain unaffected by debris, providing a durable barrier between the surface of your car and all the bugs, rocks and rubbish that head your way.


Door-Edge Guards

The included door guards install on the outer edges of your car doors. While the film can't prevent that dent you might get from swinging your door into a barrier, it can guard against the minor scuffs, scratches and dings that occur from everyday wear.


Installation

Note: It is recommended that you thoroughly wash your car before beginning the installation process so that no dirt or debris will be trapped beneath the shields.


All the included pieces are pre-cut for a custom fit. Installation requires the Husky Shield installation kit (HL07999 - sold separately). The kit includes a solution that should be sprayed onto your vehicle to make positioning the self-adhesive protectors quick and easy. Once you have the protectors in place, carefully work out any bubbles with the squeegee included in the installation kit, and let the film set.

Video Transcript for Husky Shield Vehicle Paint Protectors Review

Today we'll be taking a look at the HuskyShield vehicle paint protector. Now, these fit a wide variety of vehicles. To see if it's going to fit your particular year, make, and model, you can refer to our website. We'll begin by installing our hood protector first. With our installation solution already mixed in with our water and in our spray bottle, we can begin our install by spraying the front of our hood. We want to spray from the front edge of the hood with the mixed solution approximately 12 inches up the hood from side to side. Once we have it wet, we can then use the surface prep putty to scrub the entire front edge.

We'll want to give special attention to the humps and dips of our hood. We'll want to make sure that the hood of our truck is clean. That means that we'll need to remove all bug remains, road tar, and bird excrement. Keep in mind that anything left on the surface will be trapped in between your shield and the paint of your vehicle. When removing the solution and the prep putty remains, we'll want to be sure to use a lint-free cloth. Next, we'll lightly spray our hood about 12 inches up from the edge with our solution.

With the hood wet, we'll place our protector on the hood face down. We'll want to make sure that the front edge of our protector is away from us. The protective backing will be on top and the shield will be touching the hood. Now we can go ahead and separate the shield from the protective backing. We'll move from driver's side to passenger's side when removing.

We'll peel the protective backing away from the shield and also continue spraying the shield with installation 01:36 solution while removing the backing. Keeping the hood wet will help hold the shield in place. We need to keep spraying the adhesive side of the shield until the protective backing has been completely removed. Once the protective backing has been removed, we'll go ahead and soak the front edge of the hood and the exposed adhesive side. We want to make sure that it laying face-side down, approximately 12 inches up on our hood. When handling our shield, especially with the adhesive side, we want to make sure that our hands remain wet.

With both hands, we'll grab the shield and flip it over down to the front edge of the hood. Now we can go ahead and make sure that our shield is centered with our hood. It's very important that we keep our shield wet at all times until its position is correct and until we're ready to squeegee out the solution. There should be enough solution on top of the shield so that you can use your squeegee without pulling or gripping your shield. Once we have our shield centered on the hood, it's time to begin the removal of the solution out from between the shield and the hood surface. We'll take the included application card to smooth out the shield. You want to be sure to start from the middle of the shield and work outward, applying a little bit of pressure as you move the application card towards the outside edges of the shield. We'll continue to use the application card to work out all the bubbles and excess water. Now we can use a lint-free towel to dry the surface. We want to be sure to always wipe towards the outside edges of the shield. Now we'll go ahead and go over our shield to make sure that there's no air bubbles or lines or creases in our shield before we seal it. For this next step, you can use a heat gun or a blow dryer. We'll want to set the heat gun on the lowest setting. We'll make our way around the edges of our shield to seal the edge to the painted surface. We'll simply heat the edges of the shield while, at the same time, pressing down on the edge. We'll make our way around the entire edge of our shield to make sure that it's sealed and dry. You'll want to let the shield dry for approximately 24 hours before using a power wash. It is also recommended that liquid spray wax be applied on the vehicle hood and shield after it has dried for about 24 hours. With the shield installed on our hood, now we'll move and install our door edge guards. We'll begin installing our door edge guard here on the passenger side. We'll want to spray the area, both inside and outside, with clean, clear water. While we mixed in the solution when installing the hood guard, the instructions state that it's better to use clean, clear water when installing the door edge guards. We'll take the included surface prep putty and scrub the wet surface. Be sure, when using the prep putty, to keep the surface wet. If you use it on a dry surface, the putty will be sticky and it won't perform as it's intended to. We'll be cleaning the area approximately 1 inch above the lower outside belt molding of the door. We'll continue down the door edge until the entire door edge is clean. We'll wan to make sure that we wipe away all the residue left from the prep putty with a clean, lint-free towel. We'll go ahead and spray the edge of the door with clear water before we apply our door shield. When handling the door edge guard, we want to make sure that we do so with wet fingers. We'll peel the door edge guard from the liner while spraying the adhesive side of the guard with clear water. We'll position the top of the door edge guard approximately 1 inch below the molding. We'll apply half of the width of the guard on the outside door surface. Here at the middle, we'll wrap the excess shield around the door edge. When properly done, the guard will seal around the door edge. We'll continue to wrap the door shield around the edge of our door from top to bottom. We'll want to use our application card to work out all the air bubbles and excess water that may be trapped between the shield and the painted surface of our door. We'll work from the outside edge of the door inward, towards the outer edge of our shield. Once we have everything worked out, we can trim off any excess material that we have. Now we can repeat this process for the 3 remaining doors. That's going to do it for our look at the HuskyShield vehicle paint protectors. .

Review from a similar Shield Kit in Bug Shield


I rated this good, not because of the product, but because of the extreme difficulty to apply this product. Two of us read the instructions, then ALSO watched the 9 minute video on the Husky web site to see how it's done. So two people reviewed two types of instructions. We spent 2 hours (supposed to take 1) trying to get this to lay correctly without bubbles/fingers, and we could not do it on a 2012 Silverado. I'm no stranger to working on cars (I'm a past mechanic). If you buy this product, you will like it. But our advice is: DON'T INSTALL IT YOURSELF. We could not get the lower/bottom edge to be even with the hood -- just when laying it down at the start (yes, the adhesive side was down). The amount of stretching to get it to even start to be even with the hood-line was phenomenal...and that still didn't work. Again....no complaint's against the product. It is not easy as it looks to apply it. We pulled it off the truck and tossed it because it just didn't do what we knew it should do and it looked poor. It pained us to toss that $$. 138257
