    Skip from Home | Protective Film Technologies - Protection Film Technologies did a great job yesterday of installing on my standard white yesterday. He does Tesla's installs at the Rockville Service Center too and has done more than 60 Model Ss in the DC metro area. He has very reasonable rates and give you 10% discount for cash payment. Best part is they come to your house and do the install in front of you in your garage. Skip is now recommending the latest XPel ultimate film especially due to its "self healing" properties against minor scratches and swirls (see Self Healing Paint Protection Film - XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film). I got the full front hood, bumper, nosecone, lights, front fenders and rear bumper done. May get rocker panel soon too. Here are some photos:

    Mirrors - my only gripe was mirrors are not fully wrapped but only the front part. Skip said that is how the film is and full wrap may lift the edges are a while.

    All done - you can't really tell even when looking up close. From a bit of a distance there is no difference in reflections, color (e.g. Doors don't have it and fenders do in the following)

    How much did that cost you? I am debating on Xpel or Suntek.
