Problems with paint

We are getting reports from our southern (U.S.) partners that there may be problems installing paint protection film on the bumpers on some Tesla Model Y’s. The paint lifts off the car when installing the clear bra and adjusting. I would advise owners and friends in the industry together alike to do test spots on the bumper to see if the paintwork holds by using a small strip of clear bra and going around edges of the bumper to see if it will lift when peeled off.

If you’re in Niagara Falls Area and want your Tesla Model Y ceramic coated, paint corrected, paint protection film (clear bra) applied, or tinted please give us a call at 647-550-8704.
