This photo says it all, owner of this 2005 Silver Carrera GT was not too keen on the clear bra currently on the car. Issues with the film:

1. excessive gaps
2. open areas not fully protected
3. uneven edges
4. heavy orange peel texture on the film


We will be removing the pre-existing paint protection film and have the entire vehicle fully protected with our Signature Custom Application. Edges will be nicely tucked away and out of sight with maximum protection.

More photos to come soon!

Some more photos of the bad installation:

Heavy orange peel texture and massive stretch marks (from overstretching of the film) created much of the unclearness of this clear bra.








These mirrors were only done partial.





Front bumper is wrapped in 4 total pieces, which makes the paint protection film on the car look like a jigsaw puzzle



Exposed paint



Now it is time to remove the film.






All Off! We will spare the details, but we also found razor cuts left behind from whoever did the previous installation. We had to spend an extra 2 hours polishing them down before the film is to be applied

For those in need of replacing or removing pre-existing paint protection film or clear bra, expect that there may be some leftover adhesive residue. The product we use to remove this residue is Prestige's Adhesive Remover. We have tried countless adhesive removers and this product works the best in dissolving the remnants.

Consumers needing this, you can contact us regarding this. If you are an installer, please contact Prestige Film Technologies directly - 408-657-3880

Not surprisingly, the previous installer left out a very important area to be protected - the area directly behind the front tires! We stopped counting after the 20th rock chip on each side. We still wrapped and protected this area so that it will not get any worse from its current condition





The curvature of the Carrera GT makes the clear bra install tough, but manageable for our techs



Full Hood - no more pesky line going across the hood.

Door panels removed to access the mirrors for removal





Since the roof of the CGT is removable and typically placed in trunk, it can potentially be scratched over time. This makes it an essential panel to full protect. Having to repaint any panels on the Carrera GT is expensive.

You guys certainly do top notch work. Since looking at your product, I realize how many bad bra jobs are rolling around on the street.

When I see your work it always itches me to get our cars to you to wrap them and afterwards get them back - but this would be the most expensive wrap in the world unfortunately since I might have to organize flights for at least 5 cars from Europe to the US! :whistle:

It's so clear how passionate you are about this, you really get the sense that this is a labor of love. The craftsmanship and attention to detail really shines through.

All the great shops and techs this site has helped me find are on the West Coast ... sorely out of luck here.

Some of our customers purchase vehicles close to us for that very reason!! So they can be transported to us for the work, then shipped home.

Oy. That original film looks like the job the dealer did on our Mini Cooper S when we bought it. I just thought that was the way it was supposed to look until I started reading Premier threads. ;) Well done - absolutely agree: this car deserved better!!

It's like wine. Until you have had fine wine, you would think that all wine tastes the same. It also helps to have a refined palate and an interest in something better. :)
