Xpel UltraShield

Just wanted to give a big THANKS to David Duncan at UltraShield in Orlando, FL (http://www.xpel.com/) 407-275-0558. He worked for 8 hours to install the 3M Clear Bra on my RX-8. He did a SUPER job. Mine was the first RX-8 he had done and it was a challenge! You can't even tell it's there. I only got the piece to cover the front bumper, not the hood and fenders (I didn't want the line across the hood). I'm also having the rear view mirrors, door edges, and headlights/fog lights done, but that will have to wait for another day. I'm attaching a few pics to show what it looks like when it's being applied. This first photo shows the passenger side of the bumper before the film has been stretched and smoothed out:

Here's what the film looks like on the driver's side bumper once it has been streched into all the nooks and crannies:

Here's a close-up of the film wrapping around the drivers side turn signal. Can you see the edge? I wish I had done this to my Vette when I got it four years ago. If you are planning on doing this to your RX-8, make sure to do it before you get any chips or scratches in the paint.

Yes he can. There are patterns for all late model cars available. Give him a call.
