Tesla owners tend to be very proud of their vehicles, and for good reason. These cars represent the cutting edge of where automotive design and technology are heading. The best part is that with the introduction of the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y this technology is accessible to more people than ever before. We love these cars and Southern Stylez Tinting has become the Tesla paint protection film specialists in the Wilmington, North Carolina area.
The owner of this new Tesla Model Y wanted to have the paint protected from damage from hazards encountered on the road. After consultation, it was determined that we would be protecting the full front bumper, full hood, full front fenders, headlights, fog lights, mirrors and the full rear bumper. We would be using SunTek Ultra Paint Protection Film. This film is scientifically formulated to help maintain the beauty and integrity of vehicle finishes for many years, in all kinds of weather. It’s a combination of innovative film technologies that SunTek stands behind with a 10-year limited warranty. In addition, it comes in an optically clear, high gloss finish that is applied to the vehicle surface to create a barrier against water, insects, road debris, and other stains. It also features self-healing film and SunTek’s proprietary HydroResist technology.
However, before we could apply the film, there were some minor imperfections that needed to be corrected in the paint. While paint correction is not required, whatever flaws exist in the paint will be sealed under the paint protection once the installation is done. So, it makes sense to remove these flaws before the paint protection is installed. For this process, we bring in the paint finish experts at Personal Touch Detailing. They carefully remove these flaws so that we will be applying the paint protection to a nearly pristine surface.
Once the vehicle paint is corrected, it is ready for the paint protection application. Tesla vehicles are unique and require some special installation processes and precautions. Fortunately for our clients, Southern Stylez has done many of these applications and we understand the ins and outs of producing superior results on Tesla vehicles. On this particular vehicle we removed the Tesla hood emblem, applied the film and then re-installed the emblem. This allows for a cleaner installation void of edges around the emblem.
Depending on the extent of the vehicle being covered, we can accomplish these installations in 2-5 business days. While paint protection can be installed on vehicles with higher mileage, it is highly suggested to have the installation done as soon as possible. On every drive, rocks and road debris threaten the vehicle finish and the longer you go without protection the greater the damage will be. Check out these pictures that show the installation in process.
It should be noted that while we utilize techniques rich in attention to detail and strive for perfection on every installation, the final result is never flawless. While most of these minor flaws are not noticeable to the untrained eye, we will do everything possible to minimize these small imperfections. Here are a couple of pictures of the completed project.
