Ferrari F430 engine deck coverage


Recommended Posts

I have a request to cover the window over the engine next week. Not keen on doing this but the customer really wants it done. I'm thinking the heat from the engine will surely cause problems for the film and I'd be the one that has to remove it after its been cooked at 8500 RPM and sat in daily traffic during rush hour. There's probably many more reasons why its not a good idea (feel free so I can print it out and take with me), but has anyone ever done this?

Thats a good question. I would try it on a little cheaper car just to see the results. You can always do it with the PRIOR agreement that it is a trial and error effort. Have him price a new cover just incase. I am interested what the others will say input wise.

Reason 1: The film will cause some distortion in the clarity, and is designed for painted surfaces (just an excuse, I have never had a problem with headlights or other plastic surfaces we have covered)

Reason 2: Mark read on a different forum that the new ZR1 engine window is designed to block 100% of the UV light that may pass through, and placing any type of film over the that window will void the warranty..not a Ferrari but something to keep in mind.

Reason 3: I have yet to see damage on one of these windows, and Pro-Tect has done a ton of these cars new and used.
