A client from Hanover recently brought this stunning 2019 Porsche 911 Turbo S to Westminster Speed and Sound so we could install paint protection film. The client wanted to ensure that the gorgeous Silver Metallic paint would continue to look pristine while he enjoyed the vehicle. After talking to the customer, we agreed to cover the entire paint surface with film for the utmost in protection from knicks, scratches, scuffs and stone chips.
Porsche Paint Protection Film Installation
We started the installation process by washing and decontaminating the paint on this 911. Our team loaded a roll of 3M Scotchgard Pro Series paint protection film into our computer-controlled plotter. Just as with our window tint installations, we never cut paint or tint film on our clients’ vehicles with a knife or razor blade. The vehicle-specific cut-to-measure film pieces are a perfect fit for each panel of the Porsche and include cut-outs for emblems, door handles and parking sensors.
Our team applied a slip agent to the vehicle so that they could position each piece of the film perfectly. Once in place, we use a synthetic rubber squeegee to remove the liquid under the film.
We installed the 3M film on the front and rear bumpers, the doors, the fenders, the hood, the spoiler and the rear cowl. There’s even film on the thin painted trim around the windshield and the front of the side-view mirrors.
Paint Film Increases Trade-In Value
In order to keep the vehicle looking new, the 8-mil-thick 3M urethane film includes self-healing properties. If someone brushes up against the car, the film will absorb minor scratches and scuffs when exposed to the sun. Of course, the film also protects the car from more significant impacts from stones and rocks that could cause chips. The film also helps to prevent stains from road tar and bird droppings.
3M backs its Pro Series paint protection film with a 10-year warranty against bubbling, peeling, cracking or yellowing. The warranty is good at authorized 3M dealers all across America. Should the client move to Maine, Florida or Washington, his investment will be protected.
