What Does 3M Paint Protection Film do for Your Car?

What does 3M paint protection film do for your car? Well, used by some high end manufacturers such as Porsche and Ferrari, the film protects your paint against dirt, chips, and debris. Used mostly on the rear arches, rocker panels, and fenders of the vehicle to prevent chips and scratches in the paint which occur during operation.

So how does 3M paint protection film work? Paint Protection Film (PPF) also know as the “Clear Bra” is a clear thermoplastic urethane film, used to prevent scratches, chips, and bug splatter, by being applied to the paint on new or used vehicles. The film is currently being used on other vehicles such as RV’s, planes, boats, motorcycles, and ATV’s. You can also find PPF on cellphones, screens, and other electronic devices. What are the other benefits of 3M paint protection film? 3M Paint Protection Film comes with an ultra-violet inhibitor to prevent any yellowing of the surface, due to sun exposure.

 

The film does already come installed with some vehicle manufacturers, but can applied to almost any vehicle. The film is usually installed by certified experts, working out of an independent shop, and is offered by some detail shops. The film goes through a computer controlled custom cut, to fit each part perfectly on the vehicle that is covered. It’s backed with a high performance adhesive, allowing the film to remain perfectly attached to your vehicle. The adhesive is none corrosive and will not damage any paint underneath the film. This allows for the paint to remain unharmed, allowing the luster and shine to come through.

3M film is quite a remarkable piece of technology. It allows vehicle owners the ability to remove their old black car bra, and replace it with a clear film. This allows the owner to achieve the same protection, on more areas of the car, with out have to deplete the vehicles aesthetics. PPF can help retain your cars appearance, by minimizing chips, scratches, and abrasions while also helping to preserve the paint over a longer period of time.

I would personally suggest that you do, and can think of only one place for you to visit. Auto Super Shield (www.autosupersheild.com).

Getting Started with Car Collecting

 

Exotic Car Collection

Exotic Car Collection

With car collecting, an important decision to make is what type and age you want your first car to be. You might want to start with your dream car, perhaps a car that you always wanted but could never afford, or you might want one that reminds you of an endeared event in your life, such as the make and model of the car you drove on your first date. Getting started with car collecting is a lot of fun!

Styles and Years

Consider the style, such as American or European and the year you prefer. From the Model Ts and As, to the muscle cars in the 1960s in America, and the Austin 7s, to the Volkswagen Beetle in the 1960’s in Europe, different periods in the history of the automobile give you an endless number of choices. Keep in mind that the older the car, the more difficult it is to find, and unless you are lucky enough to find one in mint condition, expect some refurbishing to be required. According to the Classic Car Club of America, most cars between the ages of 20 and 40 years are considered classic. Cars older than 45 years are considered antique. Car collecting as a hobby is something thousands of people do.

Values and Conditions

Become familiar with the value of collectible cars. Generally, the older they are and the rarer they are, the more they cost. However, rarity plays a very important part. A car in mint condition may not be worth as much as one rarer in poorer shape.

I’ll mention here that some new cars might be considered collectible, especially the more expensive ones. For example, the 2012 Aston Martin One-77 costs around $1,850,000. Even some of the new Ferraris and Lamborghinis will be collectibles in the future. Consider the resale value of these cars to determine how much they will be worth. If your hobby is car collecting, it’s important to know values and conditions.

Where to Buy

 It is preferable to buy from a source you are familiar with. However, there are online auctions, as well as reputable live auctions where you can go and bid on a vehicle. Most live auctions allow you to look at the vehicle and check the condition. Online auctions should show specifications and other conditions of the vehicle, along with a picture.

Summary

As a general rule, when starting out, you shouldn’t expect to make money collecting cars. It’s very difficult until you know what you are doing in the way of buying, refurbishing and selling particular cars. Collect cars starting out because you love the hobby, not because you want to turn a profit.

When you have purchased your first vehicle, protect it with our Auto SuperShield Ultimate paint protection film. This premium invisible film is professionally installed over the vehicle and protects it from scratches and road debris chipping the paint. If fact, after this film is installed, a quick splash with warm water or setting the car in the sun will heal any scratches.

Koenigsegg: The Hallmark of Exotic Luxury Cars

2013 Agera R

When most people think of exotic cars, they think of marques like Ferrari, Lamborghini or Aston Martin. Some might even think of Bugatti or McLaren, but only the adept few — those initiated into the esoterica of high priced exotic supercars — will nod with appreciation when the name Koenigsegg is mentioned. In fact, for the true aficionado of exotic luxury cars, the very thought of a Koenigsegg starts the heart to racing and begets daydreams of driving very fast down the open road.

The story of Koenigsegg cars is the story of the passion and vision of one man, Christian von Koenigsegg, who founded Koenigsegg Automotive AB in 1994 when he was just 22 years old. Working with a small team that shared his dedication and relentless passion, Koenigsegg managed to create a marque and a line of cars that has taken the rarified world of exotic luxury automobiles by storm. Today, Koenigsegg stands right beside the older and established brands of exotic supercar makers, no less respected in the realm of sophisticated high-end automotive prowess than the likes of Ferrari, Daimler or Rolls Royce that had nearly a century head start.

Koenigsegg’s innovative and forward-looking cars have been defined as cutting-edge from the release of its first model CC prototype in 1996, which incorporated the extensive use of high-tech carbon fiber materials in the chassis and body components. The CC8S was the first production vehicle, starting in 2002, followed in quick succession by the CCR in 2004, the CCX in 2006 and the CCXR in 2007. The CCXR has the distinction of being the first “green” flexfuel supercar designed to run on biofuels, ethanol or regular gasoline.

Koenigsegg Agera R

Maximum Speed: 273 mph
0-60 mph: 2.9 seconds
1140 hp twin-turbo 5.0-liter DOHC V8 engine
Price: $1,600,000

The Koenigsegg Agera first premiered at the Geneva Auto Show in 2010, and shows the continual quest for refinement and perfection that is the clear hallmark of the Koenigsegg philosophy. The Agera R is the present latest model, featuring the new Aircore™ hollow carbon fiber wheels, enhanced aerodynamics, a proprietary triplex rear suspension system and a monstrous 5.0-liter variable geometry V8 twin turbo that develops 1140 horsepower. Like the CCXR, the Agera R is also flexfuel capable, running on multiple fuels such as E85 and environment-friendly bio-fuels.

The Proper Way to Clean Paint Protection Film by Auto SuperShield

Hi, this is Pepi Feliu from Florida Paint Protection Film specialty shop, Auto SuperShield. After installing paint protection film on more than 10,000 cars for over ten years, I’ve seen and done quite a bit with painted surfaces. Clean up and maintenance is pretty simple on most paint protection film. First, as a consumer, it is important to know what material has been used on your particular car. These days there are many different makers of paint protection film. Each manufacture should provide you with care instructions upon purchase and installation. Not all materials are equal, even though they may appear the same after installation. The main difference between a quality film and an inferior film is the top layer. High quality films like 3M Scotchcal, Avery Dennison Nano Fusion, and Xpel Ultimate have a clear hard coat on the surface to make them tougher. The hard coat on these films makes the surface more durable and able to remove almost all surface scratches throughout their lifespan. These films will also retain a high gloss while on your painted surface. Any other film on the market will not have these characteristics. They will protect your painted surface, but will nothave the healing properties nor retain high gloss. Purchase a high quality film if you are particular about appearance.
