Avoid leaving your car parked outside for long periods of time in hot weather, as this can cause its color to fade and the vinyl to expand or shrink, which may cause the car film to fade over time fall off. We recommend that you park your car in a cool place or garage during the day and avoid rainwater at night. The acidic substances in the rainwater will corrode the film.
