Nissan Skyline GT-R

When most people think of Nissan they think about practical four door family cars. It was in 1964 in the Japanese Grand Prix that the 2000GT Skyline took on a Porsche 904. Although the Skyline took second, it was a big step for Nissan. Take a look at the heritage, car by car, of the Skyline GT-R.

It was in 1964 with the 2000GT that the Skyline legend was born. After racing head to head against a Porsche 904, Nissan knew they were on to something.

Fast and Furious

The Nissan Skyline GT-R is a favorite among enthusiasts, tuners, and the like. The current generation R35 GT-R is one of the fastest, and most capable cars on the planet.  There are modified versions of R35 GT-R’s that make 1,800 horsepower and can go a quarter mile in 8 seconds. Even the stock GT-R is impressive, coming in at 2.8 seconds to 60. For the price point (right around $120,000 fully loaded), the performance of the GT-R is on par with super cars that cost half a million.

Godzilla meets Paint Protection

The plans for this 2014 GT-R are extreme. With horsepower numbers to be upwards of 1,000, this GT-R is going to get a lot of love. So to help make it unique, and protect it, BlackJack Speed Shop brought their new arrival to us. We installed a full STEALTH matte finish film wrap. What our STEALTH film does is protect the paint, while leaving a matte finish. So you get the self-healing and stain resistant properties of our ULTIMATE film with the sleek look of a matte finish. We took off all easily removable body panels, including, both bumpers, a pillars, and rocker panels to ensure a much cleaner installation. By removing the body panels we can wrap the film to ensure a seamless install. The results are amazing.

 

XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra

XPEL ULTIMATE leads the industry with it’s clarity, durability, gloss retention and more. We stand behind our product 100%, so much so that ULTIMATE has a 10-year warranty covering defects such as yellowing, cracking, staining, blistering and/or delaminating.

Protecting your car has many benefits. It will help maintain your car’s factory finish, make your car easier to clean, help the resale value of your vehicle, all while it is being protected from every day driving.

Demonstration of our XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing properties

Our XPEL ULTIMATE film self-heals from light scratches, swirl marks and rock chips while driving or maintaining your vehicle. During the show we use a Brass wire brush to simulate the every day occurrences that can affect the film. With the sun on the display the scratches from the brush instantly disappear. When the sun is not available, you can accelerate the healing process with a cup of warm water or a heat source.

Not all Patterns are created equal

At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern you’ll have less to worry about, since the installer will not be trimming the film on your vehicle. Using a pre-cut pattern the film will naturally fit without excessive stretching or contortion, which means the finished product not only lines up perfectly but is free of defects which could be visible once the install is finished.

Contrary to what some may believe it’s possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. With XPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible, for example around the parking sensors on a bumper, reverse cameras and more, the film is always machine cut with precision.

You can pick and choose your coverage options.

  • Door handle inserts, also known as door cups. This area is prone to getting scratched when entering and exiting the vehicle with rings, fingernails, etc…
  • Luggage Area Kit. This area is prone to damage due to items being removed from the trunk.
  • Headlights and/or Fog-lights Kit
  • Rocker Panels
  • High Impact Areas
