2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 - PPF/clear bra, ceramic coating, wheels off package!
2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 - PPF/clear bra, ceramic coating, wheels off package in Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights
This extremely low-mileage 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 PPF project came to us from Lampasas, just outside of the Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area! In gorgeous Ford Performance Blue, this 2019 Ford Mustang GT350 had factory racing stripes that had some damage, and so we replaced them for the client so that we could properly install PPF. The benefit of removing racing stripes or vinyl prior to installing PPF, is that PPF is so thick (three times as thick as vinyl), and so it doesn’t conform to the ridges/edges as well as you might like. This leaves an air channel around the vinyl. On light vehicles, it’s not quite as noticeable as with darker vehicles, and it definitely would have been noticeable here.
For this 2019 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 project we once again used Legend PPF, which carries a 12 year warranty. We utilized a 72″ non-standard size roll for this hood to minimize over-stretching (which would thin out the film), removed the hood scoop vent, and custom-cut an opening with no seams or relief cuts for the cleanest install. Not only would using a 60″ roll create a decent amount of stretching, potentially thinning out the film ever-so-slightly, it would create more tension in the hood scoop area, potentially leading to relief cuts or longer-term issues down the line with film lifting. We should have no such issue with this, using the 72″ roll. At Harker Heights Ceramic Coatings, we believe in stocking all sizes of film, and therefore, every piece cut for your vehicle is the right size with no compromise, even at all!

PAINT PROTECTION FILM/PPF/CLEAR BRA OPTIONS:
Typically, we would use STEK clear bra, Llumar, or Legend PPF gloss or matte paint protection film. Next, This clear bra article covers the major differences between clear bra/paint protection film/PPF companies, if any. Moreover, there are minimal differences between major film manufacturers like Xpel, SunTek, Eastman, Llumar, 3M, STEK clear bra, Flexishield, Global, Legend, and more. Importantly, the key takeaway is that the primary differences are in the properties of the adhesive, which installers have to deal with, but generally don’t affect anything the client sees.
is clear bra/paint protection film/PPF the same as xpel film?
