The Chevrolet bowtie is one of the World's most recognizable brand trademarks. It was in 1913 that William C. Durant first introduced this symbol. Here we are over 100 years later and the bowtie is still around, and in this caseturning heads. The Camaro ZL1 isn't your ordinary Camaro. While it's not the track monster Z28 that was just released, the ZL1 is more for the every day driver. Powered by Chevy's LSA V8, the same motor that is used in the Cadillac CTS-V models, this engine produces 580 supercharged horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque from it's 6.2-liters. That much power means this4,051 pound muscle car can hurryto 60 in 3.8 seconds and finish the quarter mile in 12.1seconds. That's only a tenth of a second off the $225,000 Mercedes Benz SLS AMG GT to sixty.

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.
