Flugplatz V12 Vantage S protected by XPEL Austin

Flugplatz The Baby Gets The Biggest Engine John Eagle European in Austin, Texas is a good partner of XPEL Austin. So when we asked if they had two special cars we could use for the Austin Auto Show they were quick to help out. One of the cars we borrowed was a brand new special edition Aston Martin V12 Vantage S. What makes this car special? For starters, the color. It's called Flugplatz blue. Flugplatz is German for "airport". Why name it "airport blue?" I'll tell you. It's named after a certain section and crest at the Green Hell, also known as the Nurgburgring. This crest is widely known for getting cars air born. Seems fitting that a car very capable of tackling the 'Ring gets a special color scheme. We protected the entire front end of this Vantage using XPEL ULTIMATE. Austin installer Chris Evenson installed film to the entire front end using our pre-cut patterns. This coverage includes the full hood, fenders, front bumper, head lights and mirrors. The performance specs on V12 Vantage S are as follows 6.0L V12 565 Horsepower 458 Lb-ft of torque 0-60 in 3.7 seconds 3560 Curb Weight   Pre-Install Prep Before installation the installer will clean and prep the car accordingly. Best methods are to wash and clay bar the painted surfaces that will receive paint protection film. By using a clay bar you remove any contaminants and even waxes/coatings that may have been applied. Having a wax or coating on the car could interfere with the adhesion of the film over time causing it to possibly lift. Once the paint is washed and clayed, the installer is ready to work. XPEL ULTIMATE does a great job of masking existing fine scratches and swirl marks, so the majority of the time paint correction is not needed. Below are examples of the patterns that were installed on this Flugplatz V12 Vantage S Hood, Fenders, Mirrors and Bumper Kit 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.

2009 ASTON MARTIN V8 VANTAGE

When you own a car like an Aston Martin you want to do all you can to protect its beautiful paintwork. The owner of this 2009 Aston Martin V8 Vantage wanted to have his wrapped in XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film. This film protects the most damage prone areas from road debris such as rocks, gravel, salt, insects and other hazards. He also wanted to protect the doors of his car from damage caused by other drivers who park too close or exit their cars with reckless abandon. The owner decided to cover the entire hood and fenders, the side view mirrors, the front bumper, both doors and the headlamps. When he returned to pick up his Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the reaction was sheer astonishment. The seamless work and wrapped edges made the product so hard to see, it was as if there was no product on the car at all. At one point, the customer was overheard selling XPEL ULTIMATE Paint Protection Film to his friend that dropped him off to pick up his car. This is one owner who not only cherishes his car, but knows the importance of protecting his paint.
