Too late to put on paint armor?

    I have had my Model S for 2+ months, and I purchased the paint armor (bra) from Tesla. I now feel like it isn't enough. Is it too late to consider putting paint armor on the entire car? I probably have small dings and scratches in certain places, and I now have the CA HOV lane stickers on the rear bumper.

    Thanks for any input/advice.

    You should be fine. Buy the touch up paint from Tesla for your color and give it to whoever is going to do the paint armor on the car and ask them to do the touchups before they apply the armor. That's what the guy I used did as part of the full slate of work (cleaned the car thoroughly, clay bar/wax, touch ups, then the armor on top).

    A good shop can probably take care of you. Just ask them specifically what they would do and if they don't give a very clear and exact description, move on the the next candidate.

    nope, not to late and done all the time. This is coming from someone who has had their car wrapped twice (my GT-R).

    Look for a reputable shop with lots of feedback. I like the shop I use here in Dallas as they wrap the clear bra around corners so no seams are visible at all.
