Our Killeen-area C8 Corvette Stingray owner brought us his fire engine red (ok, it’s Torch Red, officially) new car for a five-year ceramic coating from SB3 Coatings, and a two-year coating on the wheels using SB3 Coatings Vortex. For this particular Corvette, we removed the wheels and ceramic coated both the faces (as usual), but also the barrel of the wheel (we offer this cservice regularly) and brake calipers. This was actually the first Torch Red C8 Corvette we have had from the Killeen/Copperas Cove/Fort Hood/Harker Heights areas. We have had some Red Mist colors on the C8, but not Torch!

Do you hate how difficult wheels are to clean at times? Consider a wheels-off package combined with an Autofiber Barrel Blade (https://amzn.to/3us6wUK) and American Detailer Garage F Bomb concentrate (mixed to 10:1) (https://amzn.to/3BdvCuG), and it will be so much easier/quicker! We also use American Detailer Garage Fuzion foaming hybrid wash for this car (https://amzn.to/3VBSU5s) in our MTM Foam Cannon (https://amzn.to/3FvspJa)

About our clear bra/paint protection films:

For this vehicle, we used Legend Paint Protection Films. We talked a lot in a FAQ article about what the major differences are between clear bra/paint protection film/PPF companies, if any, between major film manufacturers like Xpel, SunTek, Eastman, Llumar, 3M,, STEK, Flexishield, Global, Legend and more. 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.

People frequently ask about Xpel clear bra/paint protection film, and if Legend PPF compares to Xpel at all. A lot of people use Xpel to mean clear bra, because Xpel is one of the most popular brands. We also discuss Xpel and if it’s the same as clear bra in this article.
