Let's Personalize your vehicles...with Paint Wraps

Vehicle Paint Wraps have been around in Europe for many years. Clients purchase a white Bimmer and want an easy color change (no paint, no over spray, no drips) without losing any vehicle value.  In fact, the value will remain high during the duration of ownership. Think about it, the original paint is completed protected - ya know "where the sun don't shine" so no paint fading, no damage from washes, no swirls and when you ready to sell the vehicle, the film can be removed.   WOW!  Add at least 3 to 5 thousand dollars to the value of your vehicle.

For those looking to add some unique bing to your ride or maybe a used vehicle needs a quick make over!.  Porsche with a carbon fiber roof, Audi with a stainless steel hood or a Ford Focus wrapped in hot pink!

We use Avery Supreme Wrap and 3M 1080 series vinyls.  www.vehiclepaintwraps.biz.   Click on the link>>>>Clearshield Protection - www.vehiclepaintwraps.biz

2006 Lexus SC430 Clear Bra Paint Protection



06 Lexus SC430

This low mileage 2006 Lexus SC430 is in absolute immaculate condition.  This repeat Client wanted it to stay that way.  So we installed a Clear Bra using XPEL and Digital Designs (DD) Patterns.  We customized the rocker panel DD pattern for improved coverage, fully wrapped and better fitment.  Plus we bulked rear rocker panel (no kit available) behind the rear wheels. Used Avery Dennision Nano Fusion.
Removed stainless steel hood grill and headlight washers for full wrap.
Hood and fenders (inside engine bay and fender well) fully wrapped.
Headlights and fogs are also protected from sand pitting and yellowing.
  
Coverage on the mirrors, a-Pillars and roof section


Fenders wrapped into the fender wheel.

Hood fully wrapped and also wrapped the bumper section between the grill and headlights. The more areas wrapped the better the fitment and long term look of the clear bra.

Metallic Silver Vehicle Paint Wrap for this Clubman Golf Cart


We performed this work for Signs In A Flash/Sign Store & More, Stuart, Fl.
We completed a full cleaning and prep.  It really needed a bath. 

Only area we did not need to wrap was the (gloss green) basket area 
since this will get full carpeting. 

We spend some extra time to protect the wrap from wear and tear.
Oraguard 270 Paint Protection film was installed in the fender wells, seat top rub area and corners (where I am currently working) this will ensure durability.

We applied Zymol Tyre on the tires, front and side rub strips.  
Sign Store & More added logos and vinyl lettering for an awesome look. 


We work with all sign shops to support vehicle wrapping, floor and wall graphics (architectural graphics).



Let us wrap your vehicle, refrigerators, shop boxes, home appliance, or most any thing.
These are just a few of the colors we offer and we can print the colors we don't have. Go crazy!

Clear Bra - 2010 Porsche GT3


This client wanted the ultimate in paint protection.  We used 3M Paint Protection Film and XPEL premium patterns with full wrap features.  First we fully inspected the vehicle, washed, dryed and began the paint cleaning process to insure a proper bond for the paint protection film and paint.

 Full coverage hood with bikini fenders, mirrors, lights, fogs and wrapped bumper.  We wrapped into the fender wells and all other areas as required. Lights are protected by XPEL 30 mil clear film - this film will not only protect from sand abrasion and yellowing but more importantly against light breakage.

 Attention to detail is paramount.  We removed the lights, blinkers, tow hood cover and hood emblem prior to installation.  The less edges the better and cleaner look.

We removed the original rear fender protection - This area is highly prone to chipping and the OEM piece is quite small.  We added a full rocker coverage integrated into the rear fender protection and wrapped into the rear fender, door areas and front fender zones. Clear edge free design.  This option offers 80% more coverage while protecting the full rocker to the front fender.

 We also installed full rear fender wrapped rocker coverage to protect from rocks and debris flying up from the huge race tires.

Be Safe During Night Driving - Headlight Restoration



Thousands of accidents were linked to ineffective light output due to worn and cloudy headlights. Traditionally auto manufacturers have been producing cars with composite headlamp units made from either poly carbonate or acrylic materials. While these materials are great for designing today's lights, they have a tendency to deteriorate over time. Lenses become cloudy and discolored due to oxidation caused by harmful UV rays, and become pitted by rocks, road salt, debris and sand. This discoloration, pitting and cracking not only affects the appearance, but it also reduces the performance of your lights. 

With the average cost of replacement head lights and fog lamps spiraling to nearly $850, it is nice to know that there is a product available to protect your car against the perils of the open road and protect against UV Damage. Headlight films are designed to protect from all of these elements. 

In fact, it can actually help restore lights that are showing signs of wear from pitting. The adhesive helps fill in the surface defects, creating a shiny consistent surface while protecting from any further damage. 

Our protection films provide maximum durability and tested under the harshest of circumstances with amazing results. Both in the real world and in the lab, our products have proven that they will withstand a barrage of 1" diameter stones (about 1 oz.) at speeds up to 120 M.P.H. with no damage to the lens they protect. It's comforting to know your expensive headlight lenses are protected.

FY I- Over 98% of our paint protection film customers includes headlight/blinker/fog protection. We have a headlight protection kit to meet your needs.







We use a up to a 6 step commercial 3M professional headlight lens restoration system.  We go one step further and install a 3M Scotchgard protective film over the polished lens so the  customer now has full protection and will not need to continual polish the lens after a few months.. 

A recent test by a film manufacturer installed paint protection film on a set of new SUV headlights and was removed after 20 months in Florida. The film removed and the plastic surface was in perfect, like-new condition. However, where the film did not cover the surface (near the edges), there was clear evidence that the unprotected surface had already begun to deteriorate from weathering. This shows the value of the film to prevent aging of exposed plastic lens surfaces. 

In cases where the headlight surfaces are already fogged, hazed or crazed from weathering, the installation of Paint Protection Film restores the surface to extreme clarity, improving headlight brilliance and focus. It was amazing to see this phenomenon. 

Many clients have the film installed on their headlights to avoid having to buy and install new expensive headlights. Please stop by our store and inspect our sample headlight with the film applied to a portion of a weathered lens. We also offer 12mil, 17mil, 30 mil and 40 mil headlight films.

Should I purchase clear bra from my car dealership?



While buying products directly from the dealership at the time of vehicle purchase has its benefits, i.e., the costs can be included in the financing, some believe it is the only way to get the product, they will get a warranty, some believe it is just easier, and finally, some believe the cost will be about the same so they might as well just get it all at the same time and from the same location. While many of these reasons are correct, here are some other issues you should consider:

· Many dealerships try to install film with their current employees and as such may not meet the clients’ quality standards.

· Should you wish to use a dealership to install your clear bra insure they are using a certified installer which is experienced, reputable, offers both a manufacture's and installation warranty.

· Dealerships may use least cost films and kit designs. The kits are preset, no coverage options and offer minimal coverage which often miss the critical protection areas.

· Dealerships may not provide you with a manufacture's warranty card or offer no installation warranty.

· Dealerships may charge an absorbent cost for the clear bra, knowing the clear bra will be included in your vehicles' purchase.

· Dealerships want to get the job done quickly and as inexpensively as possible in order to get the car out the door. This benefits the dealership and not the client.

How do I care for the Paint Protection Film?


Proper care and maintenance of the film will prolong the life of your Paint Protection Film. Frequent washing and waxing/sealing is recommended. Always remove bugs and sap as soon as possible as you would your painted surfaces. We recommend the use professional grade automotive soaps with lubricity additives and a premium wash mitt. Acrylic sealants – offer the best protection and durability. Apply sealant protection at least every three months. Always refer to your warranty card or care card for cleaning recommendations.  Enjoy your protected vehicle.
