Featuring XPEL and The Sign Savers of Miami

We arrived in West Palm Beach, Florida and the weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and it had yet to rain. The 13th annual Barrett Jackson West Palm Beach started bright and early on a beautiful Florida morning April 17th and concluded on April 19th, 2015. The first carrolled across the block atapproximately 11am local time. We had plenty of face-time with previous customers and potential customers whileshowing off the great installation on the 2015 ChevroletCorvette Z06 that theThe Sign Savers of Miami,Floridainstalled. The Z06 was completely wrapped with XPEL ULTIMATE self-healing paint protection film. The following are all protected from rocks, bug acids, bird droppings and more: the bumper, hood, headlights, fenders, mirrors, doors, rock panels, roof, rear hatch, rear quarters, and rear bumper. It was reported that the owner is an avid racer and takes his vehicle to the race track, which is perfect because it is protected withXPEL ULTIMATE. One of the more talked about cars during the auction was Herbie The Love Bug. The "oil squirter", made famous by its design to squirt oil out of the passenger side wheel well, it squirted oil on the police officers foot in the 1977 film "Herbie Goes To Monte Carlo." After the films were done, the car passedthrough the hands of a few private owners and museums before being fully restored to his glory days. Now that the car was inpristine condition and it is one of the last onesthat are in drive-able condition, the owner decided to put it up for sale. Unlike the movie the car did not drive itself, so the Barrett Jackson drivers drove it across the block...and the car brought a staggering $126,500 USDat auction!

XPEL Ultimate Self-healing Clear Bra

XPEL ULTIMATE leadsthe 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 cars 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 wirebrush 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 Patternsare created equal

At XPEL we pride ourselves on our pre-cut pattern software. By using a pre-cut pattern youll have less to worry about, since the installer willnot 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 its possible to wrap edges using a computer cut pattern which gives you a much better protection and installation. WithXPEL Technologies Corp., all patterns are available with precision cut wrapped edges where possible. Where a wrapped edge is not possible,for example around theparking 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
