Corvettes at Carlisle 2017 with Rose Detailing, ACAP Films, Blackout Tinting, and Detail Authority

    As summer came to a close, we made our way out to Carlisle, Pennsylvania for the annual Corvettes at Carlisle show. If you're not familiar with [email protected], it's touted as one of the largest Corvette-centric events in the world. With upwards of 5,000 Vettes in attendance there's no shortage of bowties in Carlisle come August. Corvettes at Carlisle 2017 didn't disappoint. VETTES FOR MILES For the initiated, Corvettes at Carlisle can be a bit overwhelming. The fairgrounds seem to go on for miles. Walking the endless rows of Vettes, it's easy to get turned around and lose track of time with so much to see. Lucky for us, the bright XPEL tent stood out like a Racing Yellow beacon of protection. Of course, it helped that we were also accompanied by Lance Miller's very own Carlisle Blue ZR1. Protected with ULTIMATE clear bra, this well-known sky blue beauty still looks as good as it did the day it drove off the lot. By the numbers, there's somewhere around 11 Carlisle Blue ZR1s in existence, so we were very lucky to have the vehicle on display again for 2017. ON-SITE INSTALLS WITH ULTIMATE & PRIME Much like past Corvettes at Carlisle shows, the booth was set up with installation in mind. With the help of Rose Detailing, ACAP Films, Blackout Tinting, and Detail Authority, [email protected] participants received the best XPEL products right on site. As the days went on, cars lined up at the back of the tent for ULTIMATE coverage & PRIME XR window film. Our dealers worked around the clock to ensure each Vette received the best protection possible. We received a lot of praise for their efforts, and truly we couldn't have done it without them. Multiple installs a day non-stop for hours on end can take a toll, but these guys put in work to make sure everyone was well taken care of.

That’s a wrap 2016

Pardon the pun, but 2016 has been an amazing year for XPEL Protective Films and it wouldn't have been possible without the support from our loyal fans, customers, and installers. Let's take some time to look back at the events of 2016. Barrett-Jackson Northeast This was the first year of the Northeast Edition of Barrett-Jackson and it was an absolute blast. It was hosted at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. We teamed up with our local installers. Automobilia Auto Salon, who are located in West Haven, Connecticut made the trip up to the Mohegan Sun to help us out at the show. We cannot wait to go back next year Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale This year was the best year yet for us at Barrett-Jackson in Scottsdale, Arizona. We had a beautiful McLaren 12C in the booth from one of our XPEL Installers and friends at Smart Shield. The entire 12C is wrapped with XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing paint protection film. We are already looking forward to 2017, which is coming up quickly.

Corvettes at Carlisle 2014

  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: Rose Detailing & Paint Protection Precision One Armor Acap - AutoGraphics   Below are examples of the patterns that were installed on this Corvette ZR1 Partial Hood, Partial Fenders, Mirrors, Bumper, and Rocker Panels 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. Headlights and/or Fog-lights Kit Rocker Panels High Impact Areas
