2022 Dodge Charger - Clear bra/PPF install! | Serving Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights
2022 Dodge Charger Clear Bra Install
Do you work on the road and travel miles at a time, but don’t want your vehicle’s paint destroyed by rock chips and scratches? Clear bra/paint protection film/PPF is the choice for you! Our Killeen area client does a lot of driving back and forth with their 2022 Dodge Charger from the Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area to Temple and back, and needed her vehicle protected from damage!
This vehicle has a number of small, but easily overcome challenges. On all Dodge Chargers, Challengers, and Durangos that have fender emblems, they are wildly inconsistent from the factory. Generally, this happens because emblems are hand-placed, and there are not many measurable “landmarks” on those panels. Therefore, computer software manufacturer’s tend to not recommend leaving badges on when installing clear bra/paint protection film/PPF. No issue! We easily removed the badge and created our own template to replace the badge in the same location we removed it from! Then, the 2022 Dodge Charger has a hood scoop that can be challenging for some installers. However, we have done a good bit of Dodge Charger/Challenger/Durango hoods that share many of the same features. Some of the trim levels, such as the Durango SRT 392, have the three vent option. This particular model has just one vent, so it was even more of a breeze! After we completed the clear bra/paint protection film/PPF install, we then installed SB3 Coatings Solo one year ceramic coating to make clean up so much easier. If you hate cleaning bug guts off your vehicle after a long commute – look no further than ceramic coating!
