This is a car that we have been waiting to do for a little while now. We were lucky enough to get two in at the same time. What an amazing sight to see two in the shop. We attacked the Guards Red one first.
This is a car that we have been waiting to do for a little while now. 

What a beauty.

Customer requested the dealer not touched the car, so we were lucky enough to receive a car with minimal paint issues. Lately we have been getting asked if we prep the car prior to clear filming, the answer would be yes. We typically will go thru a new car prep with each car that comes in for clear film. We remove all the factory packaging and make sure to remove all the left over adhesive and plastics off the car. After that is done we will decon the car with a fall out remover. Once that is done we will wash the car, which would include all door jambs, wheel wells, wheels, and tires will all get cleaned. Window stickers will be removed as well as any other decal or sticker. After all this is done if compounding or polishing is required we would move into this phase before the clear film goes on.
