Excellent idea for a product! How do you install it if the truck isn't brand new? Do you have a recommended method of cleaning the cluster without scratching it? What about ones that are already scratched, will this help hide the scratches or make them more obvious?
 
  • Package contents :
  • 1 protector that will adhere to instrument cluster
  • 1 microfiber cloth 2 dust spot removers
  • 1 Nikon all scratch free wet wipe
  • 1 instructions guide
  • For the best effect, we strongly suggest you to install the screen protector in a dust free and quiet environment*. Please read and follow the installation guide easy to apply scratch resistant- fortifying a layer of protection keeping your instrument cluster scratch free for life of the vehicle outstanding optical clarity HD display 9H durability offers superb viewing experience easy to remove, no sticky residue remains after removing the protector
 
its a case by case thing, if your cluster is already scratched up, make the call on either getting a brand new cluster or applying this item. this protector is just like a screen protector for an Iphone. etc.
 
I ordered a new cluster screen. will install the two together

I hope no one bought this. Just another marketing thing. Someone bought them for $5 off Wish/AliExpress and flipping them at a premium. OP is the hard PET plastic.

Definitely go with the ProTech:

Don't even have to get a fresh cluster. Thought about going that route myself. I had scratches on mine just from wiping it lightly with a microfiber cloth. The ProTech hid them all. You can just pull on the cluster trim and remove the gauge cluster. It's easy. Now you can wipe it like normal. I'm fanboying.

We appreciate all of our fanboys and couldn't agree with you more! Screen ProTech is like MAGIC! People don't believe it until they see it!
We also have pillar protection if you haven't seen that already! Will keep those pillars looking amazing and cover any existing scratches/damage!
 
ordered and included the extra set, thank you!

I may be confused what the pillar protection is for. Is it exterior or interior?

The pillars they refer to is the ones between the front and back windows,.... most are black in color and show branch scratches pretty well.
I will say that "film" covering/protectant like that and "auto butler" that you find on mirrors and areas behind wheels will over time actually hold dirt/oils under them that you cannot wash off (because the dirt gets under the film).

thank you!

if I am understanding you correctly, this may not be a good idea to buy?

It's give and take,
I have it on my mirrors on the fenders & body behind the tires they even put a huge piece on the hood.
All factory installed; it will protect the paint.

BUT the very edges can get oil/dirt under the film over time.
No big deal really the stuff does help the paint even from rocks................... here is my drivers rear fender body "protectant film"
This is factory stuff...... shows on white more of course.

But it works so it stays................
