    Vendor MY Lower Rear Door PPF Kits

    Hey everyone! I crafted a PPF kit to address the "strike zone" on the lower half of the Model Y rear doors where they flare out and are impacted by grit and gravel spray from the front tires. Until there's a decent front mudflap something needs to be done, and I'll still use this even after...

    What's better long term SunTek or Xpel?

    I saw a white S85 this morning in a parking lot and their "clear bra" was turning yellow. I ordered a black MS, called a couple of installers yesterday asked one guy what he thought was better and he said he would NOT put Xpel on the super high end cars he does (Bugatti etc). So I'd like to...

    Paint Armor

    I've never had "paint armor" on a car before and honestly, right or wrong, I always considered it a little silly. Maybe it's just that I spend too much time reading threads in this forum, but I'm actually thinking that I should investigate it. I passed on the Tesla option in part because I still...
