Hello All,
Ive got a cayman S in Basalt black and it has a clear bra, (Armourfend), that was applied by the previous owner.
I cleaned the car last night and whilst buffing up the front bumper, i somehow managed to scrape the clear bra wiith the rubber corner piece on the cloth, its like a little detailing triangular bit that gets bits our of the creases.
I suppose it could be described as looking like the marks that a pencil rubber would cause on a piece of glass but its quite noticeable, albeit it hasnt pierced the film, just like a surface scuff.

Any similar experiences here?
Any tips for removal?
Can I get a small area replaced?

Thanks in advance,
Craig

I have the XPEL brand on my car which is a popular brand here in the USA. Their newer type of clear bra is supposed to be self healing. I would check with someone near you that installs Amourfend to see what they say. Here is a short video showing the self healing properties of XPEL. Amourfend might be the same. By to way I was told by word of mouth not to use a buffer on XPEL.

I hear people use boiling water. Otherwise, my paste XP is plastic scratch remover works, but don't test it on my account.

that looks like magic, I don't think the Armourfend is self healing, although the previous owner had it fitted, front only car bra and included taxes, it cost an eyewatering £780-00 for bra and back of mirrors only, i.e. only half way up the bonnet and wings and all of the bumper. Expensive in my opinion but maybe I will try a bit of gentle heat and see it it helps?

Armourfend PPF is not self healing. You may do more damage with heat.
The way you describe that the scrape happened with a "piece of rubber"may not be a scrape at all.
It may just be removed by using some insect remover wiped with slight pressure on the film.
