The new 2022 Cadillac CT5 is certainly a stunning car to look at. A combination of smooth and angular lines make it an extremely visually engaging vehicle. The owner brought this vehicle in for us to install full vehicle paint protection as well as add window tint to take this vehicle to the next level.
Although this car was brand new, it still had flaws in the paint that needed corrected. This is often the case as the cars are prepared for sale at the dealers lot. If this preparation is not done carefully, it can leave swirl marks and paint flaws even on brand new cars. This particular vehicle had only 6 miles on the odometer and still had flaws that we corrected prior to the paint protection installation. This step is not required, but we recommend it as any flaws in the paint will be sealed under the protection and not be able to be corrected at a later time.
Once we had the paint properly corrected, we started on the full paint protection. We covered every panel on this vehicle with PPF including every piece of gloss black window trim and all trim accents. You can check out the detailed pictures below to see how complete the protection is. This level of coverage is very time consuming and we had this vehicle in the shop for a total of 4 1/2 days. This timeline was broken down as follows:
1 day for paint correction, 3 days for film installation, 1/2 day for final touch ups, heat sealing all edges and final detail trimming as needed.
The film that we used was 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. Some additional features of this film are as follows:
Lasting Resistance – HydroResist™ top coat increases stain resistance and product longevity by limiting water and dirt accumulation on the film’s surface.
Extra Endurance – Automotive finishes stay fresh and flawless longer with a film that helps offer the most power to shield against damage caused by rocks, salt, insects, and other road debris.
Self-Healing – Repairing scratches is almost effortless; film self-heals using heat from a vehicle’s engine or the sun.
Great Looks – Paint Protection Film Ultra is available in matte and high gloss finishes. Outstanding optical clarity makes film nearly impossible to detect once installed.
10-Year Limited Warranty – SunTek warrants professionally sold and applied SunTek® Paint Protection Film Ultra series against cracking, bubbling or yellowing for a period of ten years from the date of purchase of the Product.
Following the paint protection installation, we tinted the entire vehicle, including a clear front windshield, with SunTek CIR Ceramic Window Tint. This film is is a technologically advanced product line with outstanding, top-performing films. The addition of ceramic technology enhances solar performance and infrared rejection, maintaining a fully non-metal construction for no signal interference with on-board or portable electronic devices.
This is a personal vehicle that is able to be seen by appointment if you would like to see our level of work.
