Is it yellow or is it orange? It's a little bit of both, it is Yorange! We have seen plenty of 5th gen. Vipers come through our facility this year but none quite as vibrant as this one. Our XPEL Ultimate Full Front End Protection Package, paired with a New Car Prep / CQuartz Finest Reserve ceramic coating is the best way to protect your vehicle against road debris and Mother Nature! Not only did our customer opt for the Full Front End Protection Package, he also wanted his a-pillars / partial roof and rocker panels protected as well.
Before we applied the XPEL, we performed our New Car Prep which is a Stage 1 paint correction that decontaminates the paints surface and gets rid of any imperfections. The paint protection film was then applied.
After all of the film was applied it was time to make this bad boy SHINE! We re-washed the Viper to get rid of the gel we use to apply the XPEL and used a special product called Eraser which gets oils / residues off of the paints surface.
Now that the surface has been properly prepped and protected, we can apply the CQuartz Finest Reserve ceramic coating. Reser [...]
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!
Most new car owners want to keep their vehicle in the most pristine conditions as possible. By protecting your vehicle with XPEL Ultimate paint protection film, you can preserve the paints perfect finish from the showroom. You can protect the entire vehicle or just the areas you believe will receive the most impact from road debris / damage. Most people opt for our Full Front End Protection package like this Tesla Model S owner. Before we applied the film, we performed our New Car Prep to remove any surface contaminants and imperfections on the paints surface. We applied paint protection film on the full front end. The Full Front End Protection Package includes the full hood, full fenders, front bumper, headlights and side mirrors. By protecting the full front alone, you're covering about 50-60% of the vehicle which is prone to road debris. Next up we applied a CQuartz Professional Ceramic Paint Coating (2 - 3 Year). The ceramic coating was applied to all painted exterior surfaces and the XPEL Ultimate clear bra to give it a high gloss finish and help keep it looking freshly waxed for many years to come!

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.
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! This coating will last 2-3 years and give his GT3 that "freshly waxed" look every time he steps into his garage to take her for a spin.
Four Five Eight! We completed a laundry list of our services on our customer's Ferrari 458. First off, we removed the old paint protection film that was on deteriorating on the front bumper and performed a 1-Step Polish to remove any film residue / light swirls and scratches. We added a Full Front End Protection package which includes the full hood, full fenders, headlights, front bumper and side mirrors. After the film was applied, we coated all painted exterior surfaces and on top of the XPEL film. Additionally, we powder coated the wheels matte black to give this Ferrari a more sportier look. While the wheels were off getting coated, we had the tires dismounted and put brand new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on the freshly powder coated wheels. This Ferrari 458 not only has a new look but it's also protected from any future road damage!
Recently we had this 5th Gen Competition Blue Dodge Viper GT in our facility to receive a New Car Prep, XPEL Ultimate Full Front End Protection and CQuartz Professional Ceramic Paint Coating. Keep in mind, this is a brand new Dodge Viper that was sold by Sean @ Palmer Dodge. We have seen many Vipers come straight from the manufacturer in horrendous condition. A perfect example is the Nardo Grey ACR Viper we recently performed the same services on. This particular one isn't the worst one we have seen but the color helps hide some of the imperfections. After we complete our initial wash, we bring the vehicles into our detail bay to address the condition of the paint.
This Viper had a few imperfections which included; light scratches, holograms and swirls. Our New Car Prep (1-step polish) would suffice! After the car has been fully polished, we then move to our paint protection booth where the XPEL clear bra is installed.
We applied the CQuartz Professional ceramic coating to all painted exterior surfaces and the parts of the car that had XPEL installed. Enjoy the process an [...]

Have you ever seen a Nardo Grey Dodge Viper ACR? Well look no further! We recently had one visit our facility to get Xpel Ultimate clear bra and Cquartz Finest's newest ceramic paint coating, Reserve, applied to this one of kind ACR. Upon initial inspection outside, the brand new Viper seemed like it would just need our New Car Prep before we began the Xpel and Cquartz Reserve coating process. We were really surprised at what we discovered as soon as we brought it inside.
After the initial cleaning process, we brought the Viper inside for further inspection. We discovered that the paint was in very poor condition straight from the plant! This vehicle hasn't been touched by anyone aside from the Viper plant in Michigan and our staff for the initial cleaning process. Let's keep in mind, this is a BRAND NEW (one of one), custom color Viper ordered by the owner. We are simply astonished at the condition of this vehicle when it arrived to us...
As you can see in the images below, there are several areas across the entire vehicle that need some attention from our detail staff. The painted hood stripe was prob [...]
Our customer brought us his brand new, Plum Crazy Purple, Dodge Viper to us wanting to protect his investment. We recommended having the full front covered in Xpel's Ultimate line of paint protection film. This particular clear bra has a self healing property which helps keep your vehicle looking pristine. He wanted to take it a step further and get CQuartz Finest Reserve applied to his brand new Viper. Reserve is CarPro's latest coating technology. It has a life expectancy of 3-5 years and has an even glossier finish than it's predecessor, CQuartz Finest.
The entire front end was protected with Xpel Ultimate self healing film and the rocker panels. The hood on Vipers are so large that the pieces have to be installed in 3 pieces!

This is the condition of the paint when it arrived to us straight from the dealership showroom floor. There are numerous light scratches found throughout the paint. We took care of these light scratches and swirls while performing our New Car Prep. The New Car Prep is a necessary step for any coating application we have. This process gets rid of most light scratches/swirl marks, decontaminates the paint and most of all br [..
