The film self-heals and no matter what untrained person washes your car, wherever you have film, it's difficult, not impossible, to swirls up.
Ultimate is the BOMB! I love this film over any other film and it really stands up against anything thrown at it PLUS the warranty is terrific. The days of unreliable yellowing low-quality films are gone.

Was also going to investigate third party resin as well.. Lots of bulk sources in the water industry and fish tanks etc.. Figure as long as the ppi levels are good it shouldn't matter.. Any opinions or experience with that route? I suspect it's all probably the same industrial sources cr uses for their packets..
CR tells me their resin is virgin...never been recycled. I know years ago on 6speed, some found resin cheaper, but it might have been recycled. Let me know when you need some...I discount it for our clients. Best one to get is the r6-20...bagged and sealed so they stay fresh. I believe we sell it for $232.75 shipped

Just for clarification on this topic, XPEL does certify by the installer. We have spoken with GP and the regular installer to confirm that the work in these instances are being performed by a factory trained installer.


In a case where the sole installer leaves any shop, the certification follows the installer, however most businesses choose to send a replacement installer to training almost instantly to maintain the factory trained status.


Should anyone ever have any questions about any of our installer partners, we are always available at the main office to assist!

For those of you who have had an entire hood done, are all the edges wrapped? I assume they couldn't wrap every edge and the film would have small edges on certain sides?

Having a problem finishing someone who does the caliber of work that Glistening Perfection does around the Illinois/Wisconsin area.

Moe, road trip??

On mine which Moe did.. there is no edges on the top surface, the film wraps around to the underside of the hood. Same goes for the front fenders. Same general idea on the front bumper cover surfaces, and I believe they remove it and wrap it on it's own. Only edge visible is on the headlamps, but of course it makes sense for that.

I saw a wrap on a car on a Boxster that a friend got through a socal Porsche dealer recently. Looked absolutely hideous with the edges especially as stuff collects over time.. Honestly I think I would forgo the wrap than to do it with edges visible.

Yes my edges were wrapped. Custom job using bulk film and wrapped over the hood and fender edges. No "stopping" at the end of the panel.
