2023 Mercedes CLA PPF/Clear Bra & Ceramic Coating Process!
2023 Mercedes CLA PPF/Clear Bra & Ceramic Coating Process in Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights
We enjoyed working on this 2023 Mercedes CLA250 Clear Bra install project with ceramic coating for a local active duty army and veteran spouse! This brand-new car nearly came to us straight from the dealership (which is the best way to do it) before it got peppered by rock chips from the Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area construction. We also have a lot of clients that get damage driving to and from Austin, which is a pretty popular destination.
The best bet is always to get your brand new vehicle, in this case a 2023 Mercedes CLA250 Clear Bra, PPF and ceramic right away. We always tell clients that we don’t say that because we want the money – believe it or not, we actually make LESS money if you wait! Yep, you read that right. If they had waited to bring in their 2023 Mercedes CLA250, eventually, it gets TOO MANY rock chips and it is no longer a candidate for PPF/clear bra! Vehicles with excessive rock chips will show a bunch of white raised specs in the paint because the film is too thick to conform to the tiny chip. This goes for large, obvious chips or tiny little chips you can’t see from a few feet away. This 2023 Mercedes CLA250 Clear Bra job was a gorgeous gray/silver that looked amazing in our shop at Harker Heights Ceramic Coatings, and thanks to ceramic coating and PPF, will stay looking that way going forward!

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?
