Hellcat Gets Cquartz Finest, Xpel Clear Bra

We recently did a brand new Challenger Hellcat in RedLine Red.  This beast is one of the Fastest Challengers ever made with 707HP.  With that amount of HP is best to get a vehicle like this protected to its fullest.  We went over the options with the client on Clear Bra, Window tint & Ceramic Paint Coating options.  After a thorough consultation we decided on the following options.  A full front clip including full hood, fenders and bumper in our Xpel Paint Protection film.  The windows will receive our SunTek CXP window film to reduce heat and keep the interior cool.  Topped off with our Exclusive CQuartz Finest Ceramic Paint Coating to add a gloss and depth like no other ceramic coating in the world.

We start with a decontamination wash, which helps remove iron contamination on the paint & wheels.  This ensures a proper cleaning of all surfaces to start with a clean foundation to start polishing.

We started with the paint protection film first.  After doing a clay bar step to remove bonded contaminants.  The car is going to receive full fenders, hood, bumper, headlights and mirrors.  This bumper is a 3 piece kit so we are going to start with the top.

After being properly installed. We opt for about .5 inches of over hang to wrap underneath the bumper so its less noticeable.

Once the bumper was completed we allow a couple of hours to let the wrapped portions to dry as we move on to the full fenders. We didn’t forget the headlights as well!

Hellcat Full Fender

These fenders are pretty straight forward so we finish both up pretty quick. After that we disassembled the plastic grill inserts on the hood to wrap the full hood.

This full hood is probably one of the hardest hoods on the market at the moment.  It takes a good amount of skill to get this down and get it down right.

The next step in this process was to appy the window film.  This client chose SunTeks CXP window film.  To see more about window film options you can visit our Window Tint Page.  We utilize technology and have a program cutting system that precisely cuts out your pattern of desired window film to your specific vehicle.

Once all the windows were finished up. The clear bra edges have been meticulously wrapped in, the polishing has been completed & the paint is removed of any polishing oils and we are ready to coat. We pulled off the wheels to allow us to coat faces of the wheels along with the barrels of the wheels and calipers as well.  These surfaces are coated with a CQuartz coating designed for those specific areas.

But with as much power as this car is putting down its better to be proteced with the best products on the market that are only carried at one place and one place only!   Now this Hellcat is ready to roam the streets.
