    alltracpete got a reaction from alberts316 in Spoiler lip on PPF   
    I think a small spoiler like a "Lip" if you are referring to, would be ok attaching with double sided tape.  Tesla OEM spoilers are all held on with it, and none fall off.  I would say every "lip" style spoiler is held on by tape.  If you are worried, just put some adhesive promotor on the film before you attach it.  No way it will come off the film after that.  
     
    I guess a picture of said spoiler would solve this question more accurately.

    Sounds correct.   So why are there lots of Auto Accessory stores, tint shops, ppf shops, graphics shops all in business and making a profit because customers want all that stuff?  
     
    Thats not for ROI, its for customer satisfaction.  Just like PPF.  Its for customers to keep their car clean and damage free for the time they own it.  Not necessarily for when they trade it in or sell it.  Although when selling it, the new customer will be more pleased with the fact the front end is almost completely chip and scratch free.  I have never told a customer its for a ROI.  The Customer reaches out and asks for a PPF installation because they want it so they can keep their car looking new.   
     
    Has nothing to do with ROI.   Just like you said.

    Hey @TomTint, I respect and appreciate that you have an opinion, but man, time to move on I think. 
     
    Now people are leaving the forum because of this and that kind of defeats the purpose. 
     
    Plus this isn't the first scrap you've gotten into here lately.
     
    I think you should take a break from here Tom. Thanks for understanding.

    We get it. You don’t believe in PPF.  Thats great.  So dont comment on PPF if you dont have 20 years of experience selling and installing it. No ones going to comment on Flat Glass films if they arent in that segment.  I just dont see how, in any way, it is productive to keep down talking a product that is 1. Popular for new car owners that value the look of their car 2. Is a good product to sell for a shop that want to make a profit.  Now I remember why I got off this forum. 🤦 yall have fun

    I'm pretty sure the last time I spend a few thousand on a supercharger for a Mustang, that it wasn't for any type of return on my investment.  Except for the better trap times.   
     
    Nobody puts upgrades on their car for ROI.  Just my unnecessary two cents.

    So lets ditch the term ROI, because it obviously doesn't apply to ANY automotive add-on.  I would learn more towards "Is it worth it for the customer who is buying the product?"   And that, no matter how much experience you have, you can not quantify.   If you could you would not be arguing ROIs and how people modify their cars.   
     
    Im pretty sure everyone here is in business because they sell and install things that people want to buy.  Not sure how saying PPF is worthless makes any sense.  But I understand your thought process.

    Sometimes I remove the tow hook but that's all.  I only bulk if there isn't any pattern available.  Taking cars apart and putting them back together correctly takes too much time IMO.

    alltracpete got a reaction from blue89mustang302 in Rolls Royce Ghost - White Tuxedo Wrap   
    Started as a matte black job, then a satin black, but ended up deciding on matte white.  Actually covered the hood, grill and windshield surround with gloss black to cover the metallic black paint.  So it looks like I left the hood but everything is actually wrapped.
