We Moved!

Clearshield Protection would like to thank each and every one of our clients, clients to be and suppliers for an awesome 2012.  Due to the increase in vehicle wraps clients we needed to expand to a larger facility.  We moved  to 3520 SW Armellini Ave, Suite B, Palm City FL 34990.  This location allows us to increase our print and installation area so we can meet the needs of our clients in a timely fashion.

Thank you and have a happy new year.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need your help!

2013 Audi A5 - Clear Wrap

Client requested our premium installation with XPEL Ultimate Paint Protection film; hood, fenders, mirrors, bumper, lights and rear trunk ledge

This included full wrapped edges: hood, fenders ( hood and fender wells), bumper (front ducts and fender wells and tow hook areas.

We also protected the headlights and lower fogs.

TIP: How many times have you seen scratches, dings and chips on the rear bumper ledge from a golf bag, luggage or purse etc.  Protection of the rear top section of the bumper is a must.

Film looks flawless.

Wrapped edges always look clean, neat and easy to take care of.  No edges  - no areas for wax or dirt to build up.
Wrapped air duct and lower frontal grill.

Kayaks - PWC - Boat - Paddle Boards - Marine Protective Films by 3M

Following extensive testing in Europe,  Marine Protection films are now being used in increasing quantities by Marine manufacturers and their customers.  Protective Films have a huge benefit to boat owners as it can drastically cut the amount of time the boat is out of the water for essential maintenance and repairs.
Clear Bra, Paint Protection Films
Protective Film on leading edges of keel & hulls.

3M  protective films can be used along the entire waterline of the hull to stop algae and other discolouration taking place. At the end of the season, when the boat comes out of the water, the film can be simply cleaned or removed to reveal a clean hull underneath. New film can then be applied.
30 mil Protective Film
8 mil Protective film added to lower edge of this Gheenoe
Other areas on the deck can be fitted with 3M protection films.  Entrance ways or areas that might get kicked, scraped or scratched by visitors coming aboard.  If the boat is large enough to have a platform at the stern to take jet skis etc., these areas can also be protected.

Headlight Protection

Protect your headlights, blinkers and fog lights with the Paint Protection Film. The installation of clear headlight protection will not diminish the lights output and will not alter your vehicles appearance – in fact it will make your vehicle look better since you will not have weathering and abrasion taking place on the lens surfaces. If you are a frequent freeway driver, the protection is a necessity. We have lens patterns (headlight, blinkers, fogs etc.) for most vehicles. We also provide "headlight" specific films to protection against breakage and sand abrasion while adding high clarity and scratch resistance.

Headlight Lens Restoration with Protective Film

2006 Volvo XC90

This client told us they had the lights polished twice over the past 2 years.  This process is relatively inexpensive, quick and involves polish and a headlight liquid coating which does nothing other than add a little gloss and little protection.
Before the 6 step restoration process

Our process includes a 6 step 3M restoration to remove the damaged coating and bring the light back to original high gloss. ( this light above is polished and ready for 8 mil headlight protection film to add more gloss and most importantly protection.

This vehicle has over 160K miles and the lights look brand new!

Clear Bra - 08 Porsche Worx Turbo

This Client purchased this vehicle with less than 11K miles.  Awesome 2008 Worx Turbo in pristine condition front and rear carbon fiber spoilers and many motor upgrades.  We treated this road beast with XPEL ultimate paint protection film in the high damage prone areas.

Protected the hood, fenders, mirrors, bumper and lights.

Full hood coverage wrapped and rolled edges.
Bumper is fully wrapped without a bulk installation. We used XPEL DAP and programmed 1/4" to 1/2" wrap throughout the front bumper and 3/4" into the fender wheels. No hand cutting patterns and the coverage is better than a bulk installation!

Fenders fullly wrapped and rolled edges: Into the blinker areas, headlights and hood.

Removed the headlights, blinkers, toe hook cover and Porsche emblem on the hood to insure we have wrapped all the areas.
