PPF on back of Sparco seats

Anyone install paint protection film (Xpel, SunTek...) on back of the Sparcos for protection from kiddos in the back seat?

I have a 4 and 6 year old and worried they will kick and scratch the carbon fiber. My car is order so I'm planning in advance. I'm curious if this is a viable solution and if anyone has any feedback.

Thanks in advance.

Have you considered those plastic slipcovers grandma used to put on her couch?

Ha, no I have nor considered PPF on the back of my seats. They are raw carbon and will not seal well and look like crap.

My car is Italian and my motorcycle German

I put PPF on the back of Sparcos. Just for safety reasons, as you never know..

Also placed a black die cut AR decal on the back of each head rest.

We had the same concerns but ended up getting a QV with the 8-way power seats instead.


PPF should work well for this application. We put a bunch of PPF on the inside of the CF tub on our 4C to prevent scratching and the film shows a lot of wear, so we're glad we did it.

My mom is pretty good at crochet, perhaps I can get her to knit a racing seat cozy...I just need to find some competizione red yarn.

Good to know it worked on the CF tub. With this feedback I'll likely give it a try. Thanks
