One of our customers wanted to protect his brand new BMW M2 from all of the harsh hazards of everyday driving and the occasional track days. We recommended that he protect the entire front end of his M2. Full front end coverage includes the entire hood, side mirrors, front bumper, fenders, headlights and he also wanted to cover his a-pillars / partial roof. The first step of the installation process is to wash the car and bring it into our dedicated installation bay. This ensures us that no contaminates will get on the film or vehicle during the installation process. Also, during this process we use an alcohol based solvent to get any leftover contaminants off of the paint.

 

Now that the paint surfaces have been properly prepped and the vehicle is in our installation bay, it is now time to lay the film! A gel is applied to the cars surface to allow [...]

Now that the old paint protection film has been removed, we began the process for our New Car Prep. This step is necessary for all vehicles that receive a ceramic paint coating from us. This process decontaminates the paint surface while simultaneously removing swirl marks, bringing the paint to a high gloss finish and creating a smooth surface for the coating to adhere to.
