    BULK INSTALLS AND WRAPPED EDGES

    Hybrid Patterns

    We hear it all the time. Companies are trying to sell customers on the fact that they only do bulk installs. Here at American Wrap Co we feel that it is far more efficient to manipulate the patterns and make what we call “hybrid kits”. Through our 10 years of experience we have become very proficient on XPEL’s DAP cutting software. We’ve also wrapped thousands of cars which has given us great insight into how far we can push the film into areas for an edgeless and seamless look.

    We use ZERO adhesion promoter. Adhesion promoter is a very harsh chemical that many companies use to make the film stick in difficult areas. It sounds great until you try and remove the film and the adhesive is bonded to the paint!

    So with all that said, on most big full car wraps we like to have a consultation prior to doing the job. That way we can see what edges we can wrap safely. Then we take notes and pictures so we have good references when we are modifying every part of the pattern to create our “hybrid kit”.

    Starting with XPEL’s patterns is already a road map for success. They put extensive care into developing the best patterns in the world! The patterns start with really great coverage then we put our spin on them for a knock out combo.

    PPF Hybrid Patterns

    Bulk

    There is a time and place for everything. Many hoods on new cars are becoming more and more difficult. Sometimes no matter how good the pattern may be, it just comes out better when you bulk the install.

    Thanks to our experience, we know what will be difficult and will always make the best decision to give you the absolute best quality in the industry! Our mission is to make you happy and provide the cleanest installs possible.

    Hot Rods, RV’s and other applications will always require a bulk install. We are no stranger to getting those done, as well.

    Wrapped Edges

    We will always wrap every single edge possible! If we can get our fingers or wrap tools into the area you can be assured the edge will be wrapped!

    We always make sure that the wrapped edge of the PPF is curled around the vehicles edges smoothly without wrinkles or air bubbles.

    Wrapping edges and alignment of edges is crucial to a clean paint protection film installation. It’s equally important that the finish work is done correctly to lock down all the edges wrapped or not.

    Badge Removal

    Badge removal is another step that sometimes gets over looked. Certain cars and certain customers would prefer that badges are not removed in which case we precisely trim around the perimeter of the badge.

    For the customers that give us permission, we make a template and take pictures of the badge’s factory location. We then remove the badge using some fishing line. Once the adhesive is cleaned off, we take the time to re-apply new double sided molding tape to the badges.

    Once we have completed any wrap work to the area, the badges are reinstalled for a very clean look with the film completely under the badges.

    Clear Bra Frequently Asked Questions

    How Do I Protect My Car's Paint from Rock Chips?

    The best way to protect your car from physical paint damage is XPEL Ultimate Plus Paint Protection Film.

    What is clear bra? What does it do?

    Clear bra or Paint Protection film is an 8 mil thick polyurethane material that has been refined over the years. What we have nowadays is a multi layer self healing film that is almost 100% clear, extremely tough and durable, and able to prevent most physical damage to your car.

    Is clear bra worth it? Do they really work?

    Paint protection film is by far the best money you can spend on a new car. It is the only product that will truly preserve the look of your car. It works very well at stopping 90% of normal wear and tear on cars and trucks.

    What is the best car paint protection film?

    There are many PPF manufactures on the market now. The best in my opinion is XPEL because in my 13 years of experience I’ve never dealt with a manufacture that offers as much support as XPEL. A film is only as good as the company behind it and whether they stand behind their products!

    ~Tyler O’Hara

    Will clear bra damage paint?

    No, XPEL PPF will never damage factory paint. But if your car has been repainted (and it isn’t a good job) there is a risk that it may peel paint upon removal.

    How long does clear bra last?

    XPEL warrants their film for 10 years, in worst case scenarios. On cars that are garage kept and maintained very well, XPEL Paint Protection Film will typically last longer than you will own the car.

    Does clear bra protect against paint transfer?

    Yes, we have seen many cases where XPEL PPF will prevent paint transfer in minor parking lot fender benders.

    How much does clear bra cost?

    Paint protection film ranges in price depending on the amount of coverage a customer chooses to have installed on their car. Our entry level package starts at $500 and a full car Starts at $4000. We can go mild or go wild.

    How long does it take to install clear bra? How long do I have to wait?

    Install time can range from a few hours to a few days depending on the scope of the work to be performed. We’ll give you an estimate before we begin.

    Can clear bra be removed?

    Yes, XPEL Paint Protection Film is very easy to remove, leaving very little adhesive residue behind.

    How do you remove a clear bra?

    We remove paint protection film using a heat gun while lifting and pulling it off the surface at a 45* angle.

    Can I install clear bra myself?

    NO, it takes years to master the art of installing clear bra.

    How long after clear bra can you wash your car?

    At American Wrap Co, we post-heat every install. Immediately after our installs, you are safe to drive rain or shine, but we recommend waiting 24 hours before you pressure wash the vehicle.

    How do I clean paint protection film? How to care for clear bra?

    The only thing you need to do to care for PPF is try to not let bugs and bird poop bake into it in the sun, but if you do and it damages the film in any way, it’s covered under XPELs ten year warranty. Aside from that you can wash it like normal paint, and all we recommend is wiping it down with a good quick detail spray. You DO NOT need to wax it.
