2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat PPF

2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat PPF in Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights

Our Kempner-area client brought us his brand new 2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat for PPF. This Hellcat is the Redeye Jailbreak trim level, non-widebody. The Jailbreak trim on the 2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat allows the builder (owner) of the car to select any options they want from trim levels, which is an interesting way to go out with a bang. This is the “Last Call”, meaning this 2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat PPF is going on a potential future collector’s edition car, as it’s not going to be produced any longer.

This was another job in which we had our friends at Auto Film Specialists/Auto Film Mastery assist with. AFM/AFS trainers are some of the best in our country and owned by our friend, and mentor, Mike Norng. We never stop training here at Harker Heights Ceramic Coatings, and this is no exception. I (Matthew) have always wanted to get good at something much faster than you would expect, and clear bra/PPF/paint protection film training is no different. No one else in Central Texas has attended or hosted as many training events as I have. Now, you might be inclined to think, “Why does someone still need training after all this time?” The answer is simple: the moment you stop training is when you have failed both you, your business, and your clients! I always strive to deliver big-city quality to our small Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area. This 2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat PPF project was no different! This 2023 Dodge Challenger received a full body PPF and ten year ceramic coating!

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?

Of course, our clients at HHCC frequently ask about Xpel clear bra/paint protection film. Naturally, our clients want to know if Legend PPF, STEK, Llumar, Kavaca, and other brands compares to Xpel at all. Did you know, a lot of people use Xpel to mean clear bra, because Xpel is one of the most popular brands? Besides the information above about clear bra/PPF, we also discuss Xpel and if it’s the same as PPF/clear bra in this article.

– Solo is a one-year ceramic coating from SB3 Coatings. Undoubtedly, this is our most popular option, after SB3 Alpha five-year ceramic coating.

– Omega is a two-year ceramic coating. Interestingly, SB3 Omega, like many other coatings, enhances the vehicle’s gloss.  

– Thirty3 is a three-year ceramic coating from SB3 Coatings. Of note, Thirty3 has a three-hour cure period before getting wet, which is our fastest-drying coating.

– Alpha is a five-year coating, similar to other major brands’ five-year package and 9H. Of course, SB3 Alpha is also from SB3 Coatings.

– Trinity is a seven-year offering from SB3 Coatings. It should be noted that Trinity is a multi-layer ceramic coating.

– Vortex is a two-year coating for wheels and calipers from SB3 Coatings. Unlike many other coatings, Vortex is a high-temp coating.

– Optic is a one-year ceramic coating similar to glass on the market and is used on your windshield/glass surfaces from SB3 Coatings. Unlike Rain-X or similar products, SB3 Optic will last a year. Another critical point is the incredible hydrophobic properties that SB3 Optic has over Rain-X.



– System X Max is a ten-year ceramic coating, and the longest-lasting ceramic coating we offer. Clearly, we have many options that will fit anyone’s budget or desired longevity in the Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area.

Undoubtedly, ceramic coatings will last as long as we care for them. Of course, you can more about ceramic coating by clicking the button above. 

2023 Dodge Challenger Hellcat PPF - Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights

There are several reasons why people choose to apply Paint Protection Film (PPF) to a Dodge Challenger Hellcat or any other vehicle, including:

  1. Protection against Road Debris: The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is a high-performance car that is often driven enthusiastically. PPF can help protect the car’s paint from damage caused by rocks, gravel, road debris, and other hazards that can lead to scratches, chips, or dents. The film acts as a barrier, absorbing impacts and minimizing the risk of damage.

  2. Preserving Resale Value: Adding PPF to a Dodge Challenger Hellcat can help preserve its resale value. The film provides a layer of protection that helps maintain the car’s original paint in pristine condition. When it comes time to sell or trade in the vehicle, having well-preserved paint can positively impact its value and appeal to potential buyers.

  3. Enhanced Aesthetics: PPF can enhance the appearance of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat by adding a glossy, uniform finish. The film can deepen the color and shine of the car’s paint, giving it a vibrant and showroom-quality look. Additionally, PPF is designed to be optically clear, ensuring that the intricate design details and body lines of the Challenger Hellcat are still visible.

  4. Easy Maintenance: PPF makes it easier to maintain the exterior of a Dodge Challenger Hellcat. The film provides a protective layer that is resistant to staining, fading, and UV damage. It is also easier to clean compared to bare paint, as contaminants can be more easily removed from the smooth surface of the film.

  5. Longevity and Warranty: PPF is known for its durability and longevity. High-quality PPF products often come with warranties that cover yellowing, peeling, and other forms of degradation. This gives owners peace of mind, knowing that their Dodge Challenger Hellcat’s paint is protected for an extended period.

It’s important to note that PPF is not a substitute for regular car maintenance, and it does not make a vehicle impervious to all forms of damage. However, it can significantly reduce the risk of common road hazards and help maintain the appearance of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat over time.
