Chrome delete on Arizona’s nicest Tesla P100D

 Meticulously stenciled out letters

Meticulously stenciled out letters

It’s often we have the pleasure of working on Tesla’s Model S’s, Model X’s and soon to be Model 3’s; but it’s a rarer occasion to work on a modified Tesla owned by one of the most enthusiastic people on fire for Tesla as our client. This combination makes every appointment truly a welcoming and exciting experience every time.

The agenda this time was to do a “chrome delete”. This is a fancy (or maybe not so fancy) term used in the industry to black-out chrome trim by using either satin, matte, or gloss black vinyl material to give the vehicle a more aggressive look. All window trim, mirrors, door handles and front bumper/rear bumper trim is chrome on the Tesla. 

We also removed the front “T” and rear emblems to paint black, since wrapping these in vinyl won’t yield the result we or our client were after because the material just doesn’t comply to such intricate and small surfaces.

The transformation, although subtle, made a huge impact on the appearance of this car. We & our client couldn’t be happier with the results!

Window Tint: Corvette Stingray

Tired of having the sun beat down on your arm, face, legs? Come in and have your vehicle tinted. Not only will it decrease the glare from the crazy sun we have in Arizona, but it will protect your interior from fading and degrading since all our films block 99% of UV (ultraviolet) rays! Aside from the comfort and protection factor, we all know it adds an aesthetic appearance as well! This corvette show car came in for tint for those exact reasons! It also received a layer of Ceramic Pro. Not familiar with coatings? Think of them as a replacement for wax, only you don't have to apply it every time you wash, or even every few months! A coating protects against UV, and also adds amazing hydrophobic properties to the surface which its applied; this makes your vehicle super easy to clean, whether its painted or vinyl wrapped!

Camaro Rewrapped in Avery Pearl White with Blue 3m Vinyl Accents

The beauty about automotive films and vinyls is that you can drastically change the look of your vehicle for a fraction of what it would cost to repaint it. Also, its removable! Take for example this beautiful ZL1 Camaro. It's black, with blue vinyl accents. Let's back up just a second first.

The owner wanted to surprise his wife for their wedding Anniversary while they were away. He arranged to have the car dropped off at our location in Scottsdale, Arizona, where we began to clean up the exterior in preparation for the full color-change.

We carefully removed door panels, rear view mirrors, door handles, hood and trunk emblems, rear spoiler, and rear bumper to ensure the most seamless install possible. This creates the illusion that the car is in-deed painted the color, but in actuality it is just vinyl overtop of the paint!

His wife was obviously stunned when she saw her camaro transformed. Upon completing the wrap install, we performed a very mild polish to the vinyl to remove any fine abrasions that were put in during the install. We then topped the vinyl with Ceramic Pro. This adds protection to the vinyl as well as possesses it with easy-cleaning and hydrophobic properties. For more about Ceramic Pro, click here!

 

The 2016 Corvette Z06 Makeover Detail

This Corvette Z06 came to us as any other "ordinary" (if you'd call it that) Laguna blue vette, and left as a one-of-a-kind masterpiece designed by our client with a little influence from our artistic eye.

Receiving our stage 2 paint correction to remove any imperfections in the finish from the factory, the result was simply stunning. Surprisingly, compared to other vehicles in the industry the corvette C7/Stingray/Z06 come from the factory with very few blemishes in comparison with high-end brands such as Ferrari, Mclaren, and even Tesla.

Next, a post-operative rinse to ensure compound and polish dust is rid from the surface. After blowing dry with our filtered, heated blower, we proceeded to begin the XPEL Ultimate paint protection film install on the full nose which includes hood, bumper, front fenders and mirrors.

Next, the orange vinyl accents along the exterior carbon fiber front splitter, side skirts, louvers and hood were applied. We color-matched as close as possible to the factory carbon flash hood scoop to vinyl wrap the hood along one of the body lines with 3M gloss black metallic. The front emblem was also removed & reinstalled to ensure the cleanest aesthetic look.

The windows were also tinted in Suntek HP 5%. This alone completely changed the look and aggression-factor of this beauty!

Post-install of window-tint, vinyl, and clear bra, we gave it yet another wash to remove any dust or smudges from the surface to give the car a final prep prior to applying Ceramic Pro.

Porsche Cayman in for a Full Avery Red Chrome Vinyl Wrap and Ceramic Pro!

porsche vinyl wrap scottsdale arizona

Our client came to us with a vision of transformation for his 2015 Porsche Cayman. The car was black and he wanted it red chrome.


We vinyl wrapped the entire car in Avery Red Chrome Vinyl, accompanied by an off-center euro-style silver chrome racing stripe down the driver side. The car also had window tint installed all around and all tail lights/headlights and marker lights tinted as well. Side glass was tinted with 20%, rear glass 5%.


Unlike all other vinyl wrap companies, we gave the chrome wrap the BOSS touch with our delicate jeweling polish to remove 80+% of minor surface scratches that were instilled during the installation process. We then protected the vinyl by applying Ceramic Pro 9H to give the surface some scratch resistant and anti-corrosive properties, as well as Ceramic Pro Light to possess the vinyl with paint-like characteristics such as a slick, smooth, anti-static finish, not to mention the insane rich gloss and UV protection to extend the life of the vinyl!

You may ask yourself, "what is vinyl?". Vinyl is a material that many car enthusiasts choose to use if they are looking to alter the appearance of their vehicle. From accents such as a black roof, chrome deleted trim, different colored mirrors, or a full-body wrap, vinyl is a less expensive and removable alternative to permanently repainting your entire vehicle. Vinyl wraps will also keep the originality of your vehicle; come time to sell, simply remove the vinyl and your vehicle will be back to the way it was.
