Lexus LC500 Gets a Clear Bra That Matches It's Design and Performance

The brand new Lexus LC 500 is one terrific looking car, but this is way more than just a gutless beauty. In Lexus' own words, The LC 500 allow you to "Experience a world-class prestige luxury coupe and a new era of uncompromising design and performance."

With that in mind, we wanted to create a custom paint protection kit that provided uncompromising design and performance too. Unlike companies that merely install kits created by someone else, Clear Bra Ohio has the ability to custom create the protection package for the specific vehicle and the wants of the owner. Check out this video overview of the installation.

In this case, all of the kits available have the hood installed in three pieces. Typically, we do everything possible to avoid the look of seams by installing panels in one piece and rolling the edges. As a result, we created one of our Signature Cut hood pieces for this car so that the entire hood could be installed in one piece instead of three. This not only allows the final installation to look better (Design), but also eliminates areas that can potentially peel or leave an area unprotected (Performance). In the gallery below, you will see some detailed pictures of this install.

This car now has a paint protection install that integrates design and performance in the same way the designers of this car envisioned. When you have something as special as this new piece of rolling art or you just want a high quality installation for your daily driver, Clear Bra Ohio is the choice you are looking for.  Accept no substitute! There is a noticeable difference between what we do and others offer.

Tesla Model X Project - Where Technology Meets Protection

Modern cars don't get much more technologically advanced that the Tesla Model X. When you fully understand this vehicle's capabilities, you cannot help but be amazed. This is truly a slice of the future that is driving the roads now. 

That being said, there are parts of even this technological marvel that aren't that different than a vehicle made in 1987. What I am primarily speaking about is the paint finish of the vehicle. While paint technology has evolved, the durability of such paint has not been dramatically improved in decades. This car is just as vulnerable to paint chips, scratches and swirls marks as anything on the road. So, what can be done to bring the paint finish up to the cutting edge aspects found throughout the rest of the vehicle?

To start with, we had to remove all of the damage that had already occurred by the time the car made it to us. We set out to do a complete paint correction to restore the finish to factory fresh. Once that was complete, we installed an full front end paint protection film by Suntek. Their new Ultra film nearly disappears on the car and comes with a 10 year warranty so that it will stay looking great for years into the future. We also covered the painted seat backs to protect them from the inevitable scuffle with feet and bags getting in and out of the car.

Now, the car was corrected and protected, but it still needed one last step. Without proper finish protection, the vehicle surface is vulnerable to wear and tear that will begin to diminish the gloss and clarity of the paint. To solve this, we turn to a very high tech paint coating called Opti-Coat Pro Plus. This coating will protect the paint and the paint protection film from wear and tear and keep the car looking as glossy as the day we corrected it for years to come. 

I think you can see from these pictures and this video that the results were stunning. The best part is that the car is now set to stay looking that way because of the high tech paint protection film and paint coating that we used. You can protect the paint and keep your car looking great with a paint protection film installation from Clear Bra Ohio. Accept no substitute! There is a noticeable difference between what we do and others offer.

Ultimate Driving Machine is Now Prepared for the Trip

You know the BMW slogan, "Ultimate Driving Machine"? Well, this M2 is a perfect example of what that means. Engineered to have power and handling in perfect balance to create a car that is both thrilling to drive and stunning to look at. 

However, all that engineering didn't go into this M2 to so that it could sit in a garage and be admired. This car was designed to tear up the road. However, one thing the factory didn't design into this car was protection from that life on the road. 

The owner of this car planned on using this car as it was intended, but wanted to keep it looking great also. After consultation, we decided on doing a full hood and front bumper along with coverage for the fenders and side mirrors also with Suntek Ultra paint protection film. This film now comes with a 10 year manufacturers warranty and it is hard to detect it is even on the car it looks so nice once installed. Check out the slideshow and video below to see the installation in process and the final result.

When your vehicle was engineered to the highest standards, don't compromise with inferior products installed by inexperienced technicians.

Audi R8 Gets Protected and Enhanced at the Same Time

The Audi R8 is a stunning car that has a futuristic look backed by terrific performance. However, the low body is susceptible to damage from rocks and road debris. This owner wanted to have his car protected, but also wanted to enhance the look by going with a matte finish. This is a very popular look for cars in this caliber and many manufacturers offer a matte paint option that is often well over a $10,000 up charge. On top of the added cost, the paint would still not be protected.

After discussion, we decided to do a full body wrap of the Suntek Ultra Matte paint protection film. This film will give the owner the desired protection while giving his factory paint a matte appearance at the same time. This is truly a situation where you can have the best of both worlds.

This installation was a full body wrap that was to have as few visible seams as possible. This entailed removing badges and fully tucking all edges. Check out the video below and the picture gallery and we think you will agree that the outcome is spectacular to look at and will stay that way because of the full body protection.

Whether you have a car like this R8, or just want to provide some protection to your daily driver, the details matter. Not all paint protection films are the same. In addition, the experience of the installer has a dramatic impact on the overall outcome. A great clear bra kit is all about the details, and when the details matter, don't settle for anything but the best possible outcome. You want it to be protected and look great.

1 Year Old Infiniti Goes From Tired to Dialed

This Infiniti was only 1 year old when it arrived at Clear Bra Ohio. Unfortunately, that year had taken it's toll! Car washes and Ohio weather had caused this black paint to look tired beyond the actual age of the car. 

The owner wanted the car to return to it's former glory and look like new again. This required a total of 20 hours of paint correction! The end result was stunning though. We took a tired finish and made it look better than the day it was delivered. To protect that flawless finish and add even extra pop to the shine, we gave the car a full application of Opti-Coat Pro. This paint coating will protect and preserve this finish for many years to come.

When Attention to Details Matters - New Acura NSX Visits Clear Bra Ohio

When Acura decided to build the next generation NSX, they knew it had to be perfect. The predecessor had such a loyal following and was revolutionary when it was released. This new model had to move the technology forward in the same way as the first NSX in a way that would not disappoint the loyalists. 

Enter the 2017 Acura NSX. This thing is nothing short of amazing! As the Acura website puts it,

"NSX TURNS HEADS AND SETS HEARTS RACING. From those who fell for the first-generation supercar in 1991, to those who got their first glimpse in a Super Bowl ad, NSX has always provoked an intense reaction. And when it’s driven, the response is unparalleled. This is a car created with and for emotion, engineered to become an extension of its driver with such fidelity, it’s hard to find the line between man and machine."

With this much attention to detail paid to building this car, the last thing the owner wanted to do was downgrade the car with a paint protection install not worthy of the car. When the details matter, people bring their vehicles to Clear Bra Ohio! Check out the brief video overview of the install and the pictures to see just how great this installation turned out.

Are You Getting the Best Value on Services at the Dealership?

This article was written to provide some information about whether the products and services offered at a dealership represented the best value. We are using the word value specifically because there is much more than price that goes into whether a product or service is a good value. We plan to discuss two components of value below and how working with an independent company might provide you with a better value than using the dealership.

  1. Quality of the Service - It really doesn't matter what the price happens to be if you are not satisfied with the end result. When you make a busying decision, what you are looking for is the best overall result for the amount of money you are willing to pay. In many cases, an equivalent result will cost you more at a dealership. Likewise, you can often get a superior result by using an independent and spending the same money you would at the dealership. While not true in all circumstances, you can sometimes get a better result and spend less money by dealing with an independent shop.

    The best advice is to check pricing, view completed jobs and compare. Make sure you are getting the best outcome for what you are prepared to spend. At Clear Bra Ohio, we seek to provide the best overall value for our clients by  providing them an attention to detail at every price point that is second to none.
     
  2. Quality of the Products Used - In many cases, the quality of the products used does not become apparent for weeks, months or even years. What appeared to be a great value fades over time. The products that are used can play a huge part in this. The quality of the products that we can use for clear bra, paint corrections and paint coatings vary dramatically. Often, the results all look ok on the day of the install. What happens with the products of lower quality is that they tend to degrade in either looks or performance much faster than the higher quality choices.

    Because the dealership often does not specify exact products being used, it is hard to compare precisely what level of quality you might be be getting. The best advice is to ask what products are being used on your vehicle. At Clear Bra Ohio, we have thoroughly tested every product that we offer to ensure we are providing the greatest overall quality at each price level.

We hope that this helps you differentiate between whether to have services like clear bra or paint coatings / sealants done at a dealership or independent shop. Ask questions. Know what you are paying for. We want to educate our potential customers as we feel that the more informed they become, the better value they will realize they receive at Clear Bra Ohio. 

If you have any questions at all, please contact us by calling (937) 271-8366 or emailing us at ClearBraQuotes@gmail.com. We would be happy to help as you weigh your options. There is a difference! When you want the very best value, call Clear Bra Ohio.

Maserati Makes an SUV? Yep, and a Nice One at That!

Clear Bra Ohio was please and surprised when we saw a recent client pull in with her new car. It was Maserati's new SUV called the Levante. So this is what you get when you mix Italian style with SUV practicality. We really liked it.

Anyway, this client wanted to protect this new car from the inevitable wear and tear of the life of a daily driven car in Ohio. That meant we would be installing Suntek PPF on the front end, headlights and side mirrors. In addition, they also wanted all four doors fully covered to prevent parking lot door dings. 

We custom crafted a kit that gave the client the coverage they wanted with little or no visible seams or edges. The idea is to have the protection without being able to tell it is there. We take great pride in the attention to detail vehicles get at Clear Bra Ohio.  Take a look at some of the finished pictures to see what we mean.

After we completed the application of Suntek Clear Bra, we fully protected the entire vehicle with Opti-Coat Pro Plus paint coating. This revolutionary coating provides superior gloss and slickness to a vehicle's painted surfaces. This enables the paint to withstand water spotting, scratching, chemical etching and fading due to UV exposure. Now this beautiful Italian SUV is protected and ready for it's first Ohio Winter. Check out some more pictures of the finished project below.

Ford Mustang GT350 Gets the Clear Bra Ohio Upgrade Package

When a car is as sweet as this Ford Mustang GT350 right out of the box, you might be wondering what could even be done to upgrade it. Well, the truth is that all cars, even high end exotic cars, are not perfect when they are delivered from the dealer. They often have paint defects and imperfections that either were allowed to pass at factory inspection, occurred in transit to the dealer or happened on the dealer's lot. As a result, most vehicle's paint, even brand new vehicles,  can be improved with a paint correction to remove these imperfections.

That was the case with this Mustang GT350. While it looked great from 10ft away, there were flaws in the paint that could be taken care of with a paint correction service from Clear Bra Ohio. That being the case, we set out to "upgrade" this new car with the finish the designers envisioned back in Detroit. We begin with getting the vehicle completely clean of all dirt and contaminants with a wash and clay bar treatment.

We then proceed to do the paint correction. No panel is overlooked as we go over the car thoroughly to remove any imperfections.

Now that the finish is near-flawless, it only makes sense to protect it so that it stays that way. We start this process by applying Suntek paint protection film to the entire front end of the car. This is the area most prone to damage from road debris, insects, etc. while you are driving down the road. We also installed some custom paint protection film pieces in high wear areas to protect the paint. These would include the rockers that you can hit with your shoes as you get in and out of the vehicle as well as the area in front of the rear wheel where debris coming off the front tires can cause damage.

After the paint protection is installed and allowed to cure, we move to the last phase of protecting the entire vehicle's painted finish with a paint coating using Opti-Coat Pro Plus. We take out time to coat the entire car including removing the wheels and coating them and the brake calipers also. This keeps the entire finish protected from damage and looking great for years to come.

As you can see from the finished pictures and video below, the end result of this process is stunning and definitely was an "upgrade" to this already great car. 

If you are looking to upgrade your vehicle, call us today at (937) 271-8366 or visit our website at www.clearbraohio.com to see how to protect and preserve your vehicle while keeping it looking beautiful. There is a difference. Choose the best. Clear Bra Ohio.

That is the exact reason why this new Toyota RAV4 came in to get protected with XPEL Ultimate paint protection film followed by a full surface protection with Opticoat Pro Plus. 

All proper jobs start with a thorough cleaning, and this one is no different. The Toyota was thoroughly cleaned to prepare it for the paint protection film and paint coating. 

Now we move on to laying down the paint protection film On this car, we used XPEL Ultimate paint protection.

This takes years of learning to master and we are proud to say that we have one of the most seasoned installation teams in the country.

After the paint protection film is installed, we move onto the paint coating phase. On this vehicle we are using Opticoat Pro Plus to preserve and protect all exterior painted surfaces. This revolutionary product forms an invisible protective layer that will keep paint shining and looking terrific for many years. 

Once the car is coated and cured, you can stand back and enjoy. This vehicle not only looks great, it is protected in a way that will enable it to stay looking that way.

Subaru Gets Suntek Paint Protection & Opti-Coat Paint Coating

This Subaru Crosstrek came to Clear Bra Ohio with the goal of protecting the front end from wear and tear caused by rocks, road debris, rock salt, etc. In addition, the owner wanted the entire painted finish preserved from premature fading, scratching and showing signs of aging. 

We recommend the combination of a Suntek paint protection film bra for the front end of the vehicle followed by a full vehicle preservation coating from Opti-Coat to keep the paint looking great for years to come.

As you can see in this video, we covered the complete front end including front fenders, bumper and complete hood. This allows us to cover all vulnerable areas and also apply the film with no noticeable edges. This gives you the protection of a clear bra without the unsightly edge lines visible on lesser installations.

After the clear bra is installed, we cover the complete car, including the area the bra was just installed on, with a coating of Opti-Coat. This coating will create a protective barrier that will keep the paint shining and looking great for many years.
