I shopped around alot when I had mine done, automobilia is expensive but I've heard they do good work and they even suggested I come look at some of the cars they worked on if I had concerns... which is exactly what I'd suggest. Ideally, it would be another camaro since all those edges on the front fascia make it a difficult install.

I agree with 67RS... you get what you pay for with clear bras and a good installer is key. If you're super picky about your car, don't skimp on price and be patient about scheduling the installation. I was not and ended up paying to get a 2nd bra by a better installer. I ended up going to Rickrack's shop. It was a bit of a hike, but I think the installation in as good or better than the couple of automobilia installs I've seen - the better part being fewer seams. The trade off is its a hike if you ever need any corrections. If you're ever in the area, you're welcome to look mine over.

I went with www.customppf.com/ and they did an Excellent job. Had the Xpel put on all the way back to the rear quarter panel for $2,200.00 cash. I met the owner John & was impressed with him & he does the Xpel for Porsche/Audi also. I saved over $1200.00 buy using him & he did it in my garage.

Yup - gotta find a good shop and look at cars that were done if you are getting a clear bra applied.

Personally, I will have my car re-painted when it comes time. I race mine too much to worry about a scratch or ding in the paint. Helps to have a friend that owns the body shop...

Thanks for the info. So are you still happy with the job they did on your car? Hows it holding up? Thanks for your time. Bob

Yup - still happy... enough that I'll probably go back to get the gills and rockers covered. I did redo the headlights myself because I wanted the thicker film in the headlight kit. It's been holding up great. No stains or yellowing, no nicks / tears / peeling. The xpel ultimate has been working as advertised... I've found small dents/depressions that I figured were from stones that did smooth out after sitting in the sun. It's not that old though, it was installed late April and has about 3000 miles on it.

Thanks for the feedback.. I called Rick's shop today and left a message and I called a few other places also. I ended up booking a apt with automobiliaautosalon. He was a tad more expensive than the others but that's ok seems like a quality place. It will be getting installed next month. I'm getting protection behind the front wheels, the rockers, the hips/gills and behind the rear tires. I also have a set of Xtreme racing plash guards that im going to put on also. http://www.xtremercracing.com/CHEVY_CAMARO.cfm
Check out the pics on the site, quality pieces and great prices. Ill post pics after I put them on after the clear film.. Thanks for the advice!!

You won't be disappointed with Automobilia they are second to none, I only let them work on my cars. I will be posting about their Thaw out and Ride out show in the next couple days.
