Tesla 85D & Xpel Paint Protection Film

Tesla is an automaker of electric cars which was established in early 2005.  It combines meticulous noise engineering and obtains the sound dynamics of a music studio, in other words its an awesome car!   This Model S was just purchased & this owner was very particular about taking care of the paint in the best way possible.  After much discussion we chose the best option was to cover the impact areas prone to chipping with our Xpel Ultimate Paint Protection Film.  Before we started filming this Model S was waterless washed, decontaminated then polished to a high gloss.  We then proceeded to start the filming process.

We started with the grille, bumper, headlights and fog lights. Tesla p85 Xpel

Full hood getting started.  One thing about the Xpel Ultimate Paint Protection Film is that it has a self healing top coat which allows it to heal fine scratches and swirl marks by the heat of the sun.  Protecting any car with this film will help that factory finish & can bring the resale value up. Model S xpel

Notice the overhang above the wheel where the film is wrapped inside the wheel well, inside the hood area & inside the where the fender meets the door.  The bumper was also wrapped in as well.  This prevents any kind of debris or rocks from damaging the film on an exposed edge.

We moved on to the mirrors next lower rocker panels & rear bumper.

These rockers are angled a little towards the road which is very succestiple to road rash so we applied the film to these areas along with the leading edge of the rear wheel.Tesla p85 Xpel

We wrapped the whole thing in one piece and wrapped the edges going in the wheel well for a seamless install.
