An exotic car is a step above a luxury vehicle; it’s a work of art. They can also be extremely collectible. Powerful, lavish, and unique, each one has a distinct personality. If you’re the proud owner of one of these masterpieces, there’s a lot of consideration that goes into how to care for her, especially that beautiful paint job.
Now a vehicle wrap will protect the paint job you’ve got, but it will also cover it up. While they’re great for adding extra personality and custom designs, you may decide you don’t need that kind of personalization. A classic look may have you written all over it, but then how to do you protect that glossy finish?
With paint protection film, or PPF, of course! PPF is a clear, rubber-like film that is applied to the exterior of your vehicle. It prevents damage due to various kinds of road debris from rock chips that damage your paint to gravel that scratches your headlight lenses. It also protects against sunblasting, hazing, air pollution, oxidation, and acid rain. Since we live in Nevada, a lot of these conditions are unavoidable, but the damage they cause doesn’t have to be.
At Team Acme, we’ve spent over ten years researching and testing different films as they’ve come out. However, we’ve settled on SunTek brand PFF. The performance quality, visual appearance, and longevity this brand provides is bested by no other company. For us, it was a really clear choice.
Crystal clear with no visible orange peel, it’s the most invisible film we’ve found, which is perfect for showing off the beauty and power of your car. They also offer widths up to 60 inches, which means virtually any car hood can be wrapped in one huge piece.
Aside from using the best film on the market, our in-house processes also keep your vehicle safe. We first ask that the vehicle be delivered to us freshly cleaned. Once you arrive, we’ll inspect the vehicle for defects in the paint or other damage that may cause visual imperfections or film failure. We’ll estimate the time and cost for the installation, which will usually be a full day as we must manicure the film as it cures.
Once time and cost has been agreed upon, we’ll use the largest, most contemporary computer cut templates available and get them perfectly sized for your vehicle. We’re actually able to pre-cut the film we’ll need before installation, which means not a single blade will come anywhere near your vehicle. A lot of our competitors will cut the film directly on the vehicle, but we’ve seen the results of these kinds of installation methods. Our templates allow us to significantly reduce the risk of installation damage and outperform our competitors.
Once the templates are cut and ready, we’ll clean the vehicle’s exterior one last time and then install the PPF using the required soap and water mixture. The tack accelerator used is water and alcohol based. Once the film has been installed, we squeegee out any excess solution, manicure the edges of the film, and park the vehicle in the sun to speed the cure time. We’ll regularly check on the vehicle to ensure proper curing, touching up and manicuring when necessary.
We’ll give it a final inspection when you come to pick it up and ask that you keep an eye on the PPF, as any failure that may happen is likely to do so in the first few days of the curing process. If any problems arise, simply bring it back to the shop to get it fixed.
