This new Tesla Model 3 Performance was taken to another shop to have the paint protective film aka clear bra installed on the full front end of the vehicle.

The biggest issues found on this job were misalignment of the clear bra and cuts into the paint when they tried to trim it.

We can not emphasize enough to take your time and do your research on the shop you're going to hire to perform the work on your new Tesla.

Just because they have been in business for decades, doesn't mean they do quality work.

Here is the horrible work

Look at how far from the edge this clear bra is

The first line you see from the inside out is a razor cut into the clear coat when they trimmed the film around the tow hook due to misalignment

This one is also flat out horrible

If you notice the fine lines along the emblem. Those are also cuts into the clear coat because they didn't remove the emblem off the car and chose to trim the film instead.

Here is our work

We work very hard to give our customers the very best we can offer by doing every car better than the previous one.

We're not a high volume shop, we have chosen to concentrate quality rather than pumping out cars.

We love to make our clear bra installations as seamless as possible.

Cameras are removed to eliminate the lines other installers choose to leave around them.

Every sensor and tow hook is carefully hand trimmed for a very clean finish.

Hood emblems are always removed and replaced with new ones. We DO NOT re-use them.

The owner's couldn't have been happier with the job we did on their botched Model 3.

Tesla Model S P85

This one was done by another shop who has been doing clear bra installations for over 15yrs. The installation wasn't a bad install. It's just the basic high volume shop installation without any attention to detail. You can see lines everywhere.

They didn't wrap the edge of the fender by the door

This black Tesla Model 3 was previously wrapped at another local shop. She brought the car to us to have the film removed and properly installed.

Like many high production shops, they didn't remove the emblem or cameras to eliminate unsightly edges, no wrapped edges and oversized cut outs.
