    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.

    Rockster, I'll send you a DM to help you find an installer near you. Our locator function is new and must have an issue.

    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...

    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.

    XPEL Paint Protection Film, Ceramic Coating and Tint

    It is pretty amazing to see the difference. We are so used to seeing "product demonstrations" that end up not reality that it is surprising when the ceramic coatings really do match the videos.

    Milky look under 3M clear film

    Usually milky film is a result of too much soap, as you guessed. As Crobledo suggested, it may still dry out. It is also possible you just didn't squeegee hard enough and it is taking extra time to dry out the residual moisture.

    Vendor Entertaining and informative video on PPF Paint Protection Film

    PPF has come a very long way in the last decade or so. The products on the market now are really top notch.

    Vendor Protect your windshield, it protects you

    TwoK, Our product can be installed by anybody who already installs film: PPF installer, tint installer, etc. So if you have an existing detailer that you work with, I would recommend talking to them about installing this for you. They can order directly from our website and it will arrive in a...

    Vendor Window protection for your Tesla

    Hi, sorry for the late reply. We use shopify to process this, I agree I wish they had a "estimate shipping cost" button. However to answer your question, it is currently a flat $10 shipping in the continental US for the Tesla corner windows.

    Vendor Protect your windshield, it protects you

    We don't set the price an installer would charge for it to be installed, we only set the price we sell it to the installer (tint shop, PPF shop, etc). We are seeing that what is typical for one of our kits to be installed is around $500 to $600, depending on vehicle model, location, and the shop...

    Vendor Protect your windshield, it protects you

    Hi, the warranty on the issues you asked about is directly from the film manufacturer, Clearplex. The film has an 18 month manufacturers warranty against yellowing, delamination of the film layers, etc. The top coat is actually harder (more scratch resistant) than windshield glass. We recommend...

    We are working on Grab Gard kits for the side windows as well. We hope to have something available in the next couple of months.

    Vendor Window protection for your Tesla

    It's been our experience that installation of Windshield Gard kits, our product name for windshield protection film kits, is best left to professionals due to the size and complexity of the curvatures, especially on Tesla models. Thus, we only sell Windshield Gard kits to professional auto...

    Vendor Window protection for your Tesla

    The film has to be heat-shrunk to fit each windshield. Depending who did this and how experienced they were, it is possible for them to shrink it unevenly, which will introduce some waviness. If it is done "just right," it should be nearly impossible to notice after about 24 hours (the last...

    Vendor Window protection for your Tesla

    ClearX is a product that can be applied over the film to make it hydrophobic. We don't send this with our side window DIY kits. We do send this included with our windshield (dealer installed) kits. It could be installed onto a side window, it just is much more useful/valuable to have on a...

    Vendor Window protection for your Tesla

    Sorry for the slow response! As somebody pointed out, we use the same film as "the other guys." We send our kits as a "through cut," rather than a kiss cut. This makes it take a few extra moments to remove the film from the backing when you install it, but it also eliminates incorrect cuts that...

    Vendor Window protection for your Tesla

    Hi, CanuckBear. We have a kit for the windshield, but its intended to be installed by a detailer, PPF installer, Tint shop, etc. The level of difficulty with the windshield is high enough that we don't sell it as a user-installed kit. You could ask your detailer to order one from...
