    Rock chip, should I be worried

    PPF unfortunately isn't designed to go onto a windshield, that is why we have a windshield-specific film. It is "tougher" than what is needed on paint and works better with wipers. I'm also not aware of any PPF that has been shown to be clear enough to legally go onto a windshield in the US. The...

    Rock chip, should I be worried

    The first attempts were made in the 60s! Maybe Elon will perfect it and make it practical :) McLaren's ultrasonic force field to replace windshield wipers

    Rock chip, should I be worried

    +1. The model 3s definitely seem to attract rocks.

    Cracked windshield wait time

    Unfortunately, long wait times on replacement windshields for Tesla is the reality. They seem to break a lot of windshields, and they're only available as OEM, no aftermarket glass is available, so the combination creates supply issues.

    XPEL Paint Protection Film, Ceramic Coating and Tint

    Usually for areas like this or the windshield, it is easier to shape and cut the tint on the outside, so it doesn't drip all over the inside. Then it is moved inside for final installation.

    Vendor Introducing Windshield Gard, now available for the Model Y

    Ceramic coatings do an excellent job of shedding water. Some even provide a slight scratch resistance. They usually last a few months or even up to 6 months. None of them provide any impact resistance. If they did, the same companies who make the top selling ceramic coatings wouldn't also sell...

    Tesla seats in golf cart

    I hope that is at least an electric golf cart!

    Vendor Introducing Windshield Gard, now available for the Model Y

    Hi all! We have had lots of success with our Tesla Windshield Protection Film kits for the Model 3, X, and S. Our kits are preshaped and precut, so your detailer/installer doesn't need to heat or cut the film on your vehicle. Normally Windshield protection film is too difficult and risky to be...

    Rain not beading on windshield

    Some coatings remain on the windshield better, resisting being removed by the wipers. Others are removed very quickly by the wipers.

    Windshield Rock Hit

    You could also be running into supply problems. Windshields for the Y have been very slow to order.
