  1. Hood protector film Ziebart

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    Has anyone had the film installed by Ziebart’s or another company. I'm wondering if it's worth it or not. I can get the entire hood, fenders and bumber covered for a decent price including some paint issues they are helping me out with. This will be the first car I treat with respect. I think...

    Soul Accessories (Gen 2)
    Hey guys, whats the formal name and part # for the clear plastic film that comes OEM on the rear doors by the wheel? Having trouble finding replacement parts because I do not know the formal name to search it. This is for a 2017 if it matters, thank you.
  3. Protection film for your headlights!
    When upgrading our headlights with expensive aftermarket set, we really hope that it will last for a long time. But as any other product, it requires careful handling and protection. WeatherTech has a resolution for you! Their LampGuard Headlight Covers secure your headlamps, fog lamps, turn...
  4. Anyone using Fluid Film on the Soul?

    How To / DIY (Gen 1)
    I didn’t want to start a new thread and did due diligence with searching the forum for rust protection products and found threads on Krown, Sym-Tech, Waxoyl and a few others but nothing on Fluid Film. Fluid Film® | Corrosion Preventative, Lubricant and Rust Inhibitor I don’t represent this...

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    Hi Folks; Just bought a 2015 SX last night - driving home in the rain was AWFUL. I couldn't see very well with oncoming traffic headlights. It appeared there was a film on the windshield that was almost impossible to see out of? Can anyone offer ideas? Thanks jo
  6. 3M Defender Spary on film

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    I have been watching the videos on this from the manufacturer and YouTube. It looks easy enough to do and not having to deal with film is certainly attractive option. But does it really work as advertised. Has anyone used this product?
  7. Window Film

    Soul Problems (Gen 1)
    I remember seeing a post about this somewhere - but I did a search and I couldnt find it. But there is a film that keeps showing up on the front window and its really noticeable when light hits it (dawn, dusk, and night). Does anyone know how to get rid of it? Window cleaner doesnt work...
  8. Paint protection film?

    Soul Accessories (Gen 1)
    Has anyone tried the paint protection film from 3M or the InvisiMask paint protection film? I'm looking into getting one as I'm getting a Soul very soon and want to protect it from chipping. If you have tried it, is it hard to install? And, does it actually protect it? Thanks!:D

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Finally got the film protection applied on my Tempest (just in time too - gritters out in force and snowing later the same day!!!). Had a company called Paintsheild (in Peterborough, UK) do it (it took them 2 days), and they did a really fabulous job. Apparently nobody on their worldwide...

  11. decal and film maintenance query.

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    To those of you who have the vinyl decals on your cars. What happens when you wax the vehicle?. I assume the decal takes the wax fine and just polishes off. But what about the slightly raised edge of the decal?, does the wax get into the "corner" and leave a pale outline between the decal and...

    Soul General Discussion (Gen 1)
    Has anyone on the board used clearmask, expel or ventureshield to protect from paint chips, I found my first one today. :mad: The dealer had the 3m product but wanted 1k for it and I said "NO". I know I can get it for from $475 to $750 depending on the product. Just looking for personal reviews...
  14. Tint matching

    Aftermarket modifications (Gen 1)
    Ok my soul just got back from the tint guys. We used 20% grey tint. Well it looks about the same from the outside as the stock rear door tint maybe a bit darker. From the inside it looks 5 shades darker in the front. This kind of bothers me I wish I got the one shade lighter. The stock tint...
