The garage door opens. In front of you is your pride and joy. An automotive work of art. It’s new and clean, and there isn’t a mark on it. Sure, you’re going to take good care of it. You vow to wash and wax it religiously. You’ll park far away from others to prevent door dings. You’ll keep your distance from trucks on the motorway. You’ll do your best not to brush up against the curb, and of course you’ll drive slowly over speed bumps. But no amount of careful driving (or careful parking) can protect your car from the one thing guaranteed to cause damage every single day.
Stones and other road debris propelled by the vehicles in front of you, as well as bug splatter and bird droppings, inflict damage to the painted surfaces of your car on a daily basis. It will never be factory perfect again.
You could buy touch-up paint and try to fix the damage as it happens, but you’ll never get back to the flawless original paint you had when you left the showroom. You could have the damaged area professionally repainted, but besides not being original anymore, it’s expensive and the onslaught of damage will simply resume as soon as the car is back on the road.
It is not only new cars that get the best of the best. Most companies providing PPF installation services using pre-cut templates are restricted to the designs and templates provided by the major film providers which focus mainly on post 2000 production cars, until now. Ultimate Paint Protection are pleased to announce we can produce pre-cut ppf kits for any classic car. We now have bespoke in house design and production facilities to allow us to produce templates for any panel on any car. What does this mean, we can produce templates to cover complete cars or one-off pieces without cutting the film directly on your car. Our process is to make a precise template from your existing panel and create a pre-cut piece that will fit exactly to your cars individual panel. You can now have the same protection for your pride and joy like the supercars of today enjoy.
I have heard some classic car owners feel that PPF does not belong on classic cars as it was not an originally option at the time of production. As a classic car owner myself I can fully follow this thinking, however as much as I can understand this thinking I also believe that if a product does not change the original design, construction or appearance of a classic car then it is not taking away from the originality. For example, if you have just finished restoring your classic car from the 50/60s and have had it resprayed, it is almost likely that it has been resprayed with a water based paint ( as legislation is forcing us these days) although not a OEM it is not changing the car in any form or shape, likewise PPF is designed to enhance the existing paint and not change it.
