PAINT PROTECTION FILM AKA “CLEAR BRA”

Congratulations! You bought a new car, you spent a lot of money on it, and you want it to look like new as long as you can. There are rocks, bird droppings, tree sap,  people with cars and trucks that can damage your amazing new car, and so many other things that can damage your precious paint job! You want to drive your car like normal but you’re scared of damage that can happen so park your car at the very end of the parking lot where no one else parks. So, what do you do?

The Solution: Paint Protection film aka “Clear Bra” will protect your car from all those terrible things you encounter daily when you actually drive your vehicle. What’s the point in buying your favorite car if you’re not going to use it? Clear bra is a clear, thick film that covers your paint provides a sacrificial shield between it and rock chips, deep scratches and stains that could reach into your clear coat. This will permanently protect your vehicle, so you don’t have to worry because the clear bra will protect you! We can remove and replace the film at any time without incurring any damage to your beautiful new factory OEM paint underneath! There is no better solution for preventing damage to your paint than 3M or XPEL Paint Protection Film.

Clear Bra is most commonly applied to the front end of the car, which is where most paint damage occurs, but it can also be applied to other individual impact areas like trunk ledges, headlights, door sills, door edges, and rocker panels; which can all experience paint finish damage.

Brand Description
3M SCOTCHGARD PRO SERIES (BEST) 3M Scotchgard Pro Series represents the latest technology in paint protection film. The unique technology that separates this product from its competitors is a true testimony to 3M’s innovation. Industry-leading clarity and self-healing and stain-resistant characteristics, 3M Scotchgard Pro Series is designed to give you years of protection and performance without ongoing maintenance. Unlike your car’s paint, when 3M Scotchgard Pro Series is scratched, the scratches virtually disappear, keeping your film looking newer longer. Virtually nothing can protect your vehicle better from scratches, stains, and chips than 3M Scotchgard Paint Protection Film Pro Series. It’s truly the ultimate protection for paint.
XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS (BEST) XPEL’s Ultimate Plus Paint Protection Film combines best-in-class durability and clarity not previously available in the market. With its very low surface energy, XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS sheds contaminants that would otherwise stain or yellow conventional films. In addition, the clear coat employs special elastomeric polymers that “heal” over time eliminating swirl marks and other fine scratches without having to do anything. XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS is truly the most revolutionary Paint Protection Film ever invented!
3M SCOTCHGARD (BETTER) 3M Scotchgard is an 8 mil thick film that installs with slight orange peel due to its clear-coat. It is an older technology film and requires more experience to install. For the DIY customer we recommend purchasing one of our other films to help with installation difficulty. Once it is installed, you can treat it like you treat your paint. 3M Scotchgard does not require ongoing maintenance. However, because 3M Scotchgard is not manufactured 60” wide, in many cases you can not have full hood coverage without a seam.
SUNTEK FILM (BETTER) SunTek PPF-C offers breakthrough technology for paint protection applications. Features and benefits include invisible protection from damage caused by rocks, salt, insects, and other road debris, a proprietary, self healing top-coat formulation that is scratch, crack and stain resistant with either a high-gloss or a matte finish, superior optical clarity and easy installation with increased longevity.
