Mercedes SLR and SLS Clear Bra Installation

XPEL Paint Protection Film XPEL's Design Access Program Pre-Cut Kit

The Mercedes SLR McLaren is one of the top exotic automobiles on the market today. With less than 3,500 of these machines roaming the streets of the world they are a sight to see. Every part of the SLR was built to make it stand out from the crowd. With its amazing design and performance specs, not only does it stand out from the crowd, it stands above them all. The design goal was to model a modern day supercar based off of one of the worlds most sought after cars to date, the 1955 300 SLR. Once again they have shown that they are at the top of the automotive world. This limited edition 722 model honors the 1955 Mille Miglia win by Mercedes-Benz driver Sterling Moss. The 722 also add some sport changes to the car as well as the carbon fiber front and rear spoiler kits and custom wheels. This car came to us brand new and our goal is to let the owner enjoy the thrill of driving the car and keeping it that way. The question from my client was not weather he wanted to put XPEL Paint Protection on this car, but how soon could we fly down and have it installed for him. Most people are intimidated just sitting on a car like this. Its just another car right? So it has a half million dollar price tag. No big deal, its just a limited production edition of an already limited production super car. Ive seen other manufactures clear bras on SLRs and weve had to remove them, they have not been a pretty sight. XPEL made this install smooth and virtually painless. Not to play it down, the car provides challenges with its out of this world lines and curves. If you have the right paint protection film and right installer it all comes together amazing. Now this car can continue turning heads on the street without taking the abuse that it certainly would without XPEL protecting it.

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.
