Corvettes at Carlisle 2014. Over 15 On-Site Corvette Clear Bra Installations with XPEL Clear Bra

American Muscle Cars get guarded with paint protection film.

Corvettes at Carlisle is an annual event at the widely popular Carlisle Fairgrounds in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Every year thousands of Corvette owners meet for a three day show full of events ranging from autocross, burnout contests, and even a parade through downtown Carlisle. Attendees have the chance to meet with fellow Corvette owners at the swap meet, or even have new products installed on Manufacturers Midway and Installation Alley. Everything from headers to paint protection can be added to your Corvette to add personality, protection, or performance.

2014 marks XPEL’s second year as a vendor, although previous years long time XPEL customer Rose Detailing has been a vendor. This year was more successful than ever, with help from three nearby XPEL Factory Trained installation shops, we were able to finish installs on 15 Corvettes ranging from bumper kits to full frontal protection.

Special thanks to the following installers for making it a great show:

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
