Is the screen protector a flat film? Wondering if it's something that could just be cut from some protective stock material.
It's very, very similar to the sort of protective screen you get for mobile phones, but with a matte finish instead of a smooth (clear) one like I normally get and a little more flexible.3m film protectant works on about everything. I’ve converted 3 mountain bike frames and forks, easy to apply wet and can cut it to any shape. Heart gun allows it to make the curves.
The install process was pretty straightforward. Clean it like you would a phone, then use sticky tape to remove any dust that is left behind, align it as best as you can and then place it down. Remove backing side 1, apply to face. Smooth air bubbles out from the middle to the edges. Hope you didn't miss any dust in the process. Once you're happy, removing backing side 2, and you're left with the installed insert.
Maybe @AZ7000' can pitch in here for how similar it is to 3M film protectant, but to me you could absolutely put a 3M protectant on the front instead. The biggest issue I can think of would be heat from sun exposure.
