Protection Plus in Shrewsbury, MA


Protection Plus in Shrewsbury, MA

Q: I am going to (hopefully) be bringing my car to Protection Plus in Shrewsbury, MA for them to do a clear bra install on my 2004 Jetta GLI. We tried to install some of the pieces ourselves, and they just don't look good.

My question is this: Do you guys recommend them as a good installers? I am very|\|4L about my car, so I want to get it done right.

I went to a BMW show recently and only saw one BMW with a good looking clear bra and found out that Protection Plus did it. But who knows if all their installs look that good..........

Anyone have experience with them?

A: I have known Joe and those guys a few years and they were listed on my website for a while when we were on the same cutting program. They are good installers.

A: Seeing that she is in Maine - a place with a lot of snow salt sand etc in the winter, going with a coated film is a must! As for scratching, touch a black car wrong and it scratches, clean it properly and it looks good!

Dark grey is a great color to hide PPF, no matter which film you use.

A: The new 3M looks great on black or white paint. Why would you want anything else?

A: I contacted them today......

Well, I am bringing my own 3M clear bra kit with me for them to install. They said they would install someone else's kit, gave me a price on the install that I am happy with, and said it would take about 3 hours! I am a happy girl now! I have to drive 2 hours to their shop, but it will be well worth it if it comes out good.

Q: Another question.....

How do they prep the paint? Do they wash it first then apply something like 3M Adhesive Remover? I am concerned that they might wash it with a broom like they do at dealerships and leave scratches/swirl marks all over the car......if thats the case, forget about it.

I will ask when I call to schedule an appointment......

A: I hate to think anyone in PPF would do such a thing. I'm sure they will take very good care of your car. Go ahead and clean it up as much as you can before you drive out there.

A: Your results are going to be a direct factor of a couple things.

A. Who you got your kit from, and what design house they use.

B. Is it a clear or non clear coated film?

C. how long has it been at the design house/salespersons shop?

D. If it IS 3M clearcoated, is it the new film or old film?

For this simple fact I dont install anyone else's kit, because it usually falls on the head of the installer. Suppose you get to there and the kit has wrong sections in it? Or has a flaw in the film? It is always best to have the installer get the kit they are comfortable with, if their supplier isnt the kit of choice. walk away

I looked at the pic of your car and kudos for a nice ride, BUT, you have to trust the persons. I have told people no right up front that are too apprehensive, I feel no matter what I do that I couldnt please them, not based upon what I'm capable of, but by their expectations of the product. I certainly hope it works out best for you and please dont take my comments as nit-picking

A: Protection Plus still and will always cary 3M Film. We have some of the best Installers working for us.

A: Well, the film is finally on.......

I must say that I am absolutely happy with the outcome!! It came out so good thanks to Dave at Protection Plus. I will now recommend them to anyone considering PPF. They will definitely get more business because I will never stop bragging about my front end now.......the cheapest and easiest way of advertising is having satisfied customers like me!

If you're reading this......Thanks, Dave!

What is window tinting?
 Window tinting is the phrase usually used to describe the process of applying window film to car windows or flat glass in homes and buildings.

 Window tint or film is constructed of one or more layers of polyester film darked or dyed with a variety of components to achieve different results. It is coated with an adhesive and generally applied to the inner surface of windows to reduce heat, light and improve aesthetics. Thicker versions are used as a safety film to help prevent injuries and to slow intruders.

 Having glass tinted can generally reduce the need for air conditioning and can pay for itself over time in residential and commercial applications. Many modern window films are able to achieve a great amount of heat reduction without as much visible light reduction compared to the window films of the past.
