This month’s spotlight vehicle is a Lizard Green 2019 Porsche GT3RS. Being around the Porsche community for many years has sparked my love for these engineering marvels. From being trackside with my brothers GT3 Cup IMSA racing team to driving his GT3, GT3RS, and GT2RS Porsche’s I’ve developed a fond respect for these cars. On this particular GT3RS the customer purchased the car from a dealership out of state and as part of the purchase he had paint protection film (PPF) installed at the dealership. Unfortunately, the car had a ceramic coating previously applied that caused the new PPF to not adhere in the crucial areas. He came to us to fix this problem, so we removed the previously installed PPF and did a full paint correction on those areas to ensure that the replacement PPF would adhere to the surfaces. This meant paying close attention to the edges, corners and crevices where the ceramic coating was applied. From there we took it a little further by removing the hood vents and decals on the fenders and quarter panels where the film would be installed. After all the prep work was completed, we installed XPEL Ultimate plus over the entire front of the car, rocker panels with partial quarter panel protection and the rear wheel impact areas. This install included wrapping all the edges where the film was not previously wrapped, reinstalling new GT3RS decals and then applying the XPEL Fusion Plus ceramic coating over the new film and corrected paint. After all of that was completed we installed XPEL Prime window tint to give the owner UV protection and privacy. The moral of this blog is that PPF should never be installed on top of a ceramic coating. If you have a ceramic coating on your car and would like to have PPF installed make sure you seek out a shop that takes the same pride in workmanship that we do and is capable of performing a proper paint correction.
