    Suntek

    Get on Suntek's website and look up who their rep is for your region and get ahold of them that way and I'm sure they'll get you a sample or a whole roll if you're needing it as well as discuss costs per roll and such. Josh
  2. They just take a razor knife and trim it out.
  3. Many panels that low have slightly textured paint and the film will not lay down perfectly flat which causes lots of little bubbles and edges like that to not stay down. If it's not textured like you say and are that worried about paint lifting, you need to just have them trim those fingers off. The installer may have forgot to heat down the edges cause it was such a low area.
  4. As mentioned it was prob a water pocket or just moisture left behind and a tiny bit of air in that moisture. Once the moisture is gone the air is left behind. That's a pretty easy fix.
  5. I would add Suntek to your list, they are a good film and one I would consider in the top 3 categories. Very stretchable, adhesive is not too aggressive and it looks good.
  6. This is a really old thread, I know Suntek has redone there software and it's way better then the original version and still way cheaper then anyone else out there. Josh
  7. You think it's unfair to charge $50 a month for a software program..... lol You realize they update dozens of patterns per week right, so you'd be spending a ton more money with your way of charging.

    Looks good. nice job
  9. Have you actually used it or seen it in person??? I have used it on rockers with a sample Suntek sent me and the orange peel texture in it looked no different from there other PPF's. It looked great matter of fact. It was a little more difficult to wrap around the edges and trim though but otherwise it seems to be a good thick film. Josh

    It is based off a BMW Z4 so the oversized hood is like an oversized Z4 hood. Suntek has a 72' film now for hood like that, I've used it and it is awesome. See if you can get some and you won't have those lines across the top part of the hood and it's a way easier install for oversized hood, takes the stress and stretch out of it all.
  11. You might even call around to some of your competitors and ask what they charge for a full front and full car just so you can get some ideas. Josh
  12. Are you doing it by yourself or with a crew?? Try to figure how many panels you can do per day and you'll have a better idea.
  13. adhesive removers will not remove ceramic coatings, you have to compound them off but even if you do remove it the coating will likely still be in the edges and areas you may wrap and still make the film lift.
  14. Your'e going to try this yourself and of all cars it's an M3!!! Your'e so screwed. I'm pretty experienced at installing bulk and you know what the one car is I dread doing the most....... ding ding ding, you guessed it the M3, M2, M5, M anything..... The bumper is insane. Even the headlights are difficult and most headlights are the simple part of the install. Wrapping wheel well edges is not a big deal, I do it all the time, you just need to clean them extremely well. Also if you don't get the positioning and stretch just right with those patterns you'll have no extra film to tuck into the wheel wells. My advise is to not buy anything but the headlights and start with those so you don't waste a ton of money. Once you realize how difficult the headlights are pay a professional to do the rest. You're biting off way more then you can chew on this one. If it was a Porsche or Tesla hood and fenders I'd say you might be able to do it with minimal issues but not a M3. Josh

    PPF Thickness vs. Performance

    Funny the 3M Pro didn't look any different then the others after being blasted with rocks then any of the others they just circled less marks?? lol Also makes you wonder since everyone basically claims to be 8 mils thick how come none of them were? did they squeeze those films tighter by chance? Too many uncontrolled factors to call this a scientific test. Josh
