    Here we will be posting our most recent work on the Model S. In the following posts you will see the steps of the installation process from start to finish. We like our customers knowing exactly what goes on and how we install our paint protection kits. Please feel free to message us and ask any questions you may have on the product or our work!


    These are things you will NOT find in our work:

    - Stretch Marks

    - Lift Lines

    - Dirt under the film

    - Film Blemishes

    - Kits aligned incorrectly


    2016 Tesla Model S

    When we received the car it had bird droppings, hard water spots and scratches all over it. So we did a thorough exterior wash and paint correction before installing paint protection film.

    We received the car just like this with bird droppings all over it. So we washed it and used a clay bar to remove all the micro debris.

    Here you can see an area on the hood with some pretty bad scratches and where the bird droppings have begun to eat at the paint.

    This is the same area after paint correction!

    We are installing 3M Crystalline and Madico IR films today on this Model S.

    IR films block significantly more heat than regular or ceramic films due to its thickness and layering.

    The customer chose to have 20% Madico film installed on the sides and back and 70% 3M Crystalline installed on the windshield for maximum heat rejection and to reduce glare.

    Not to mention it looks awesome!

    Here are some pictures of the installation.

    Our customer from Sarasota came to pick up his Model S from us today after we did paint correction and applied Gtechniq Crystal Serum to the entire car. We also ceramic coated the windows and wheels!

    Before our customers leave, we like to educate them on the products that we have just installed on their car and teach them how to maintain them properly. This way they stay in the best condition possible.

    Here are some photos of the finished product!

    This weekend we wrapped up the work on our second Model S this week!

    Our customer wanted to cover the full front of the vehicle with Suntek Paint Protection Film and we also did full Crystalline window film on all the windows and sunroof. Crystalline window film blocks about 97% of all heat and 99% of UV rays and is extremely high quality.

    Here are some pictures of our work.

    Getting the hood film on is easiest with two installers.

    We make sure to wrap edges for a clean install.

    Another Tesla in for Paint Correction, Paint Protection and Ceramic Coating.

    We also installed full Crystalline window tint to protect the interior and block out as much heat as possible.

    Our detailers polished and paint corrected the entire car to remove any swirls or scratches and give the paint a deep mirror finish.
    Then we wrapped the entire car in Suntek Paint Protection Film to protect it from rock chips, love bugs, road debris, and other objects that could cause damage to the paint.

    Finally we sealed the paint protection in with a seven year, high shine, hydrophobic ceramic coating as an added layer of protection and to give the paint a wet glossy appearance.

    Here are the pictures of the install and finished product.

    One of our customers from the Tesla Motors Club Forum brought in his Model S this week for us to install full 3M Crystalline Window Film on the entire vehicle. We did the sides, back and sunroof to give maximum heat rejection.

    Featuring a Model X we did this week in the background.
