  1. kind of silvering , looks like premature adhesion , from pressing or stretching did you try to increase the soap concentration?
  2. light heat with heat gun to get the glue sticky again...., just press from the area that`s closed already, treat it as wrap edge
  3. not an expert , but i do not see no wrinkles or tension in that opening. trim it where is bound and be done with it. if you try to clean it and close, you will still get an visible dirt line trapped there. another option is clean , open slightly more once dry , than bound with adhesive promoter and force close, trim the excess
  4. the pic you posted is the older light and the flat card works , not the NEW models. upper lights has a mesh under the lens. did you try the flat card with new models? headlight is fully integrated in the fender, and the fender is wider, will need more stretch to wrap the fender.
  5. just a heads up , the new porsche headlights are removable. the car has a switch where you can lift the front about 2more inches for access. the inner liner needs to be removed (11 screws- 4 at the bottom , 7 in the wheel area ) , or dropped to have access for the 2 bolts that holds the headlight. no bumper removal needed. after all the bolts area removed , you will need help when pulling the headlight, one person push from inside and second holds it in the front. also masking tape should be used around the headlight before removal. the inside front bottom of the headlight has a pin that slides into a small track. (in pic marked with red)
  6. spoiler i think has double side tape, the light .. you should get access tru the trunk liner....youtubeuniversity should help more. also look into tesla forums
  7. ask the manufacturer to send you some samples and see what works for you, that will be the best approach. i been trained and use all 3 films , i prefer suntek, i use trucut
  8. another aspect would be if the paint is heal enough to put the ppf on it , if not... than who will replace it can end up with some bare metal on their hands.... the car i see was done with template , and other than 2-3 small fingers (mirror and lower lip) was a good install , no stretch lines or miss aligns or impurities . the car was silver. any repairs or replacements may take a toll on local dealers ....
  9. why you don`t talk about xpel loyalty to their dealers.... because is NONE! i been 3 years exclusive dap and xpel ppf , than you guys decide to wipe me down from your dealer list because some greed decisions , to force me to buy a minimum , now after 5 years of dap fees and credit payed for cuts , new rules, keep your rules Jeff , is America and is an competitive market! i will always have options , but the way you treat your dealers/ customers just turn people off to deal with you guys..... take that to your boss! yes, Suntek has better customer service and a good line of products , tell them that too
  10. yup.... some porsches will be delivered in US with ppf already installed at the factory, see the delivery tag , full hood, full front fenders, front bumper and mirrors 2700$... most likely other manufacturer ( benz, bmw, audi , vw ...to start with ) may have that option too....
  11. xpel did me a favor today so i can save some good 5-600$ a month. xpel new rules, if you don`t buy film , no more dap , even if you had monthly dap subscription (325$) and you buy credits 1$/sqft....no more , greed is at their door again. Trucut here i come, my real divorce with Xpel is happening , i did damp their film 1.5 years ago now is time to stop paying for their software. In my shop SUNTEK wins!
  12. depends a lot of your area , also full car? full front ? full car , the material can take between 1000-2000$ , take that out from what other shops in town charges and you have your price .....
  13. i usually allow 5-7 days for a full car , i do think 3-4 days works too, also i install hybrid ( bulk and pre-cut) . with big projects i like to spend a bit more time after the install so i can address any issues.
