Shelby Daytona signed by Carroll Shelby gets autograph protected by XPEL Ultimate Film

I already know what you may be thinking. "I'd rather have a Ferrari 250 GTO". Well, I beg to differ. It doesn't get much better than this. A 1964 Shelby Daytona autographed by the late great Carroll Shelby. This Ford V8 powered race legend causes a ruckus wherever it goes. It's not everyday that you see this extremely rare example of American muscle. Born in 1923 in Leesburg Texas Carroll Shelby was a gear head from the get go. In January of 1952Carroll drives his first race, a quarter mile drag meet, behind the wheel of a hot rod fitted with a flathead Ford.* From then on there was no stopping him.

So what do you do when you get an autograph by Carroll Shelby on one of the rarest examples from the same name? You protect it, and that's exactly what the owner of this Shelby Daytona did. He looked up Invisible Edge, Inc out of Riverside, California to get the autograph protected. The owner decided to go with XPEL Ultimate because he wanted to protect the signature without making it obvious that it was covered. Only XPEL Ultimate would stand up to the constant ogling and fingerprints. Victor from Invisible Edge did aphenomenaljob on this install.

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.
