From Black to Matte

Blog1

 

A previous customer had Protective Solutions New England install PremiumShield film on his Audi RS5 fully covering the hood, fenders, bumper, and mirrors. He decided to bring it back and have the old film removed and replaced entirely with matte film. After heating and peeling off the previous install and completely scrubbing down the car the RS5 was ready for a fresh new look.

Every inch of exposed paint is going to be protected by the film with all edges wrapped around body lines to hide any seams. To achieve this amount of coverage, stripping off most parts of the car was essential. The bumpers, mirrors, rocker panels, and window clips had to be removed in order to provide the desired amount of protection and hardcore  appearance.

INSTALLATION

The installer first applied the film with a slip solution and squeegeed out any bubbles or wrinkles to ensure a solid bond between the paint and the adhesive. Heating and using an adhesive promoter on parts wrapped into the car was used in order to hide any protruding edges of film. Due to the massive amount of coverage required for this job, the door, rocker, and quarter panel on each side were made from a single 12 foot by 5 foot sheet of material. Because of the aggressive design, trimming and tucking excess film into the recesses of the body proved difficult and time consuming, but the end result was well worth it. Stretching along the fluid bodylines revealed a flat finish flush with the paint, nearly indistinguishable from a much more expensive actual matte paint job from a body shop. We left the grill untouched and covered the front lower fascia in transparent PremiumShield paint protection film, leaving a glossy accent to the overall dark guise of this RS5.

Inside, color matched one off interior special ordered from Audi gives you an idea of the attention to detail by this customer. Naturally, to keep the outside of the car as stunning as the interior, we protected the vehicles painted surfaces with one of our paint protection kits.

Right In Red: 2013 Audi S5

We had an amazing opportunity last week to do a full coverage install on a brand new Audi S5. This car is absolutely stunning inside and out, and what better way to protect that Misano red pearl paint than our very own PremiumShield paint protection film. This installation covers the front bumper, full hood, full fenders, doors, rocker panels, rear quarters, trunk and rear bumper.

As Audi changed body styles, their front grilles have grown larger, many other manufacturers have chosen to do this as well. This makes the front bumper split into two pieces along with a separate piece for the lower skirt. Here our certified installer is positioning the film to cover the passenger side of the bumper.

The difficult part of an install such as this, is that most of the car is custom coverage. Meaning that in some cases there is not a pre cut piece and we make it ourselves using bulk paint protection film.

This was an amazing car to work with and we’re glad to help in protecting this car so it can look brand new for years to come. Full coverage installs and any custom piece you can throw at us are available upon request. Check out the rest of the photos from this install on our gallery page.
