Very few 991.2 GT3's have been delivered stateside as of last week. We were lucky enough to have one in our facility last week for an XPEL Ultimate Full Front End Protection Package. Adding paint protection film to your new vehicle, can help prevent damages on the track or street. The cost of a repainted front bumper for example could cost almost as much as it would to protect the full front end of your vehicle. With that being said, paint protection film is a small insurance investment to maximize your vehicles protection while still being able to go out and enjoy it! What fun would it be just to put it in the garage and stare at it? This particular GT3 was optioned out nicely with carbon ceramic brakes, carbon bucket seats, leather / alcantara interior package, front axle lift system and Chalk exterior paint!
The best way to protect your investment from rock chips, road debris and other damages from driving on the road is to protect it with XPEL Ultimate paint protection film. We recently had this brand new Porsche Panamera visit our facility for a full front end protection package. This package includes the full hood, front bumper, full fenders and side mirrors. XPEL has a self healing property which allows it to stay looking brand new for several years. Other types of film will start to deteriorate over time from rock chips and road debris etching away at the film. Also, Ultimate paint protection film has a clear coat embedded in the film to allow the best clarity and gloss on the market! To achieve maximum gloss, you can apply one of our CQuartz Ceramic Coatings on top of the film for added protection and shine.
Our friends at Merit Partners, recently acquired this beautiful '72 Porsche 911S adorned in Light Yellow. With only 72,xxx miles on the clock and a two owner car, it was very well maintained. It needed a little lovin' from our guys to bring it back to its best conditions possible. We were asked to do a thorough inspection of the suspension components, wheels, exterior paint, engine bay and interior. Continue reading below to see the full detailing process. Also, if you're interested in owning this 911S, it is FOR SALE!As you can see in the images below, the paint had minor swirls and scratches. Our team quickly assessed what polishing process we needed to perform to bring this Light Yellow paint back to life!Let the polishing begin!We fully inspected the interior, engine bay, wheels and suspension. The interior needed some minor vacuuming and dusting. In the engine bay, it was very well maintained! We had to spot clean a few areas but nothing too intensive. Lastly, we took off the wheels to inspect each one and thoroughly clean them. While the wheels were off, we were abl [...]
One of our customers wanted to get some old paint protection film removed off of his recently purchased GT3. The film that was installed previously was starting to deteriorate and he wanted it gone. We removed the old film along with all of residue left behind. Up next, we performed a 1.5 - Step Paint Correction to get the paint looking better than the day it rolled off the showroom floor. After the compound/polishing process was completed, we installed our Full Front End Protection Package using XPEL Ultimate's self healing film! Not only did he want to have his vehicle protected from road/track abuse he also wanted to keep it looking freshly detailed and easier to maintain for several years to come. We applied the CQuartz Professional ceramic coating to all painted exterior surfaces, wheel faces, wheel barrels and brake calipers!

That's where we step in!
After the initial wash, we can see the imperfections on the paint surface. Minor swirls and scratches are scattered across the entire vehicle. Since this GT3RS is getting full body XPEL coverage, we needed to fully polish th [...]

We see many Porsche's come through our facility on a weekly basis. It takes something very unique to catch our attention in the world of Porsche. This Sport Classic Grey, 911R did just that! Boasting a whopping 500hp and a 6-speed manual gearbox, what is there not to like about this Porsche?
This vehicle has been fully protected with paint protection film. I'm sure you're wondering by now what we are doing with this gorgeous piece of automotive machinery here at Shine. We are applying CarPro's newest ceramic paint coating, CQuartz Finest Reserve. This new coating has a longer life expectancy (3-5 years) and a higher gloss finish than its predecessor.
Since this vehicle has paint protection film already applied to the entire vehicle, we completed a preliminary wash to get rid of any dirt/debris from driving. Applying the ceramic coating to the clear bra will greatly enhance the glossiness and make the 911R easier to maintain for years to come.
The next step in the process is a light polish to get rid of any decontaminates that might be on the paint protection film surface. Once the film has been lightly polished we can proceed with the coating process. CarPro's pro [...]
The new Panamera's have been trickling into a few dealerships around Atlanta. We were fortunate enough to get our hands on one fairly quickly! Our customer wanted to protect his investment by choosing to do a full front end coverage with Xpel Ultimate self healing paint protection film. The full front end includes; full hood, full fenders, side mirrors and the front bumper. With all of the construction going on around Metro Atlanta it was a very wise decision to make!

Each vehicle is properly prepped before the installation begins. First, we have a dedicated area for the installation process to help control the environment around the vehicle. This minimizes the chance of debris getting onto the film or paints surface during the application process. Each panel is cleaned with alcohol and squeegee'd thoroughly to remove any contaminants or residue that may be on the paint surface. Some of our customers choose to have their paint polished to get rid of any nasty swirls [

Check out the process we took to install this exhaust system!
Out with the old in with the new! This is the loudest exhaust system for the 07-12′ GT3 and GT3RS. Not only does it sound great, it also drops 60lbs of excess weight over the OEM exhaust.
