    PPF - air bubbles?

    They need to be fixed by the shop that did the installation. It just needs a tiny needle to let the air out. Should only take them a second to fix. Sometimes these appear as the film cures. Don't poke or push on them. Let the shop handle it.

    Xpel PPF

    If you used a pressure washer and hit the edge of the film, it can get under the film. The shop that installed it should have gone over that with you.

    Model Y DIY Xpel Ultimate PPF

    Most Saran Wraps are extremely thin, only 0.0005 inches thick. ... compared to 0.008 inches thick for most Paint Protection Films. You'd need 16 layers to match the thickness.

    2019 M3 Full Vinyl Wrap Quote Northern NJ - Input?

    That price is par for a basic color change wrap with those specific brands/colors here in northern California. My shop would be a touch higher, but not much.

    Obligatory Tint/PPF Question...

    PPF won't stick to the raw (unpainted) plastic trim pieces, unfortunately. It can stick to the satin black door handles and window trim though. It will definitely make those parts glossy black. For the raw plastic parts, they'd need to be removed, wet sanded to a 600 or so, and then you can...

    Model Y DIY Xpel Ultimate PPF

    pro-tip: Typically, our shop does not cut around the sensors. However, if the client ever wanted them cut out after we have installed the PPF, we have placed a nickel over the sensor and traced around them for a clean perfect circle. Obviously, dont press too hard to harm the paint under it.

    PPF is no joke

    🤣 That would be a lot of tape, for sure. I'm not confident the durability will be the same as PPF though. lol. It is a bit surprising that you only OP only had the PPF on the vehicle for such a short time though.

    Window Tinting ruined my Door....

    There are a few specific vehicles that need the door cards removed to do the best installation possible. With that said, Teslas are not one of them. The little dents in the door card shown in your pictures are from a tool that they insert into the internal window sweeps to provide a slight gap...

    Red M3P, or White + Red PPF?

    PPF, question on quality

    When it's installed correctly, you shouldn't see any cuts, lines, bubbles, seams.... it should look like it's just painted. You can barely see the edge of the PPF material in the lower "mouth" in this top pic.

    Xpel XR Prime Plus vs Spectra Photosync

    This was using Xpel's highest performance feat blocking film, the Prime XR Plus series. It is comparable to the Crystyline and Spectra. I had no intention of threadjacking here. I just wanted to show that Tesla has an IR blocker built into the sunroof glass of the Model 3.

    Xpel XR Prime Plus vs Spectra Photosync

    The sunroofs of the Teslas have an IR blocking coating that is extremely efficient at blocking UV and IR. Adding a layer of window film won't result in a noticeable difference. Don't confuse this with the side glass and back glass though. The factory darkened glass does not have that same...

    New wrap and chrome delete

    With all respect, the geographical location typically has less to do with pricing than the quality of installation and products used.

    New wrap and chrome delete

    There are multiple factors in pricing a "wrap" for a vehicle.

    Roof Tinting Yay or Nay?

    The roofs of the Model Y and X have a very good IR built into the glass. Adding a light film isn't going to be very noticeable for the heat blocking. The screens are cheaper and relatively easy to install for shading the car.
