View Full Version : Paintshield Protective Film - a labour of love

Have to tell you about the service and professionalism i received from the guys at Paintshield.

I put a call into Tom the owner of the business in Grantham yesterday morning. I explained that i had recently acquired my 360 and was very keen to get the paintwork protected whilst it was in a perfect state. With the forthcoming event at Wicksteeds I was also mindfull that the car would get some use and thought it more than likely that some spirited driving would take place at some point over the weekend. Tom was more than obliging and suggested that i come over straight away and he would fit me in.

This is not the first car i have had film on, so i am more than aware of the benfits and possible downsides that it can offer. Tom talked a good story about how his business was different to some of the others in the industry - and that he wouldnt let my car out until he and i were completely satisfied. Now i am always sceptical when people offer sweeping statements - probably down to having trained salespeople for a number of years! So anyway, I thought i would save judgement until the end.

Paintshield as a company are based in the US, and Tom has set himself up as a Uk distributor, fitter and training centre for any franchises. As you would expect being the head office - he has to make sure that everything that leaves his workshop is 100% good. He has a very impressive customer list including Aston Marton,Porsche, Ferrari Club Fiorino and more. So i was comfortable in letting him tackle my car.

I arrived there at 2.30pm and was welcomed by Tom straight away. I was shown to an area where i could use the internet, read magazines play computer games and so forth. Tom is truly a car nut himself - even the toilet seat has racing cars running round inside it. Toms big passion is Jap cars but i will excuse him for that.

My car was washed straight away and the car examined for chips, marks,etc.

The details and model of the car are then entered into a computer which has a program that automatically cuts sections of film that will fit the car to perfection.

Water is then sprayed onto the vehicle allowing the film to slide prior to it being squeedgeed and stretched into shape. This process is by no means easy - there are so many different angles on a panel that the film really has to go in angles that it wouldnt naturally do. This part really is tricky and requires months and months of training. It is not something to consider as a DIY job!!

Firsly the bonnet was covered, then the front valance and lastly the wings and the mirrors. Now at the part where the wings were being covered some imperfections in my paintwork were found - Basically the car had never been clay barred and there were some tar like deposits. Tom was reluctant to cover the full wing until the car was clay barred and the deposits removed. I then made a few phonecalls, and got the car booked in for this. As a temporary measure Tom covered half the wings in effort to minimise any stone damage.

The car was finally finished at 9.30pm! Tom refused to charge me until i returned to have the wings finished and my side skirts done.

The finished item is absolutely outstanding and i have to congratulate Tom and his team on the professionalism of his business and their efforts towards customer care and satisfaction. Outstanding!

I also attach some images of a 355 that was being done. In a previous thread it was mentioned that they were a difficult car to do for some of Toms competitors. This is absolute codswallop - you just need to be good at what you do (and Paintshield are).

Looks good and is definitely a viable alternative to having the from of the car resprayed each year. Out of curiosity Tom, will removing the film damage the paint? I was advised by my local Porsche centre not to get my RS done as after a while it starts to go yellow in appearance (i.e it looks crap) and can remove the paint when you take it off?

Is this a load of rubbish or true?

OK The answer to this is Yes and no

Firstly OEM film that the manufacturers put on the cars is the cheapest nastiest stuff that money can buy and pretty much goes yellow while your putting it on LOL

What we fit is a Consumer product (completely different) and in fact we do Porsches GB's management flleet (and Have for two years) so if it was going to do this I think that would have stopped. We warranty it for 4 years aginst Yellowing cracking discolouration Peeling Lifting etc


As for removing Paint, this depends on whether it is a respray or not and whether that re-spray has been done correctly.

The product is guaranteed not to harm OEM paint in anyway as I was showing HUD yesterday, if the respray has been done following our recommendations, correct removal of film will NOT Pull Paint.

We have an advisory document which we send out to clients, regarding re-sprays (nothing a GOOD bodyshop should not do by default). This gives the client somewhere to go in the unlikely event that something does occur.

Hope this helps


Best Wishes

On the 355 do you put film over the daytime flasher lights (these are the small round ones at the bottom that everyone thinks are fog lights) or just leave them uncovered? They are notorious for getting cracked with stones and need all the help they can get.

We have special film that covers these if required Normal Film will not stop them cracking we ship a 0.27 thick film in from the US to withstand the rigours of impact (think about the transferable properties of Kinetic energy and you will see why this heavy duty film is needed).

Hi Ring me at the office tommorrow and I will price the Job for you, as for the other comments, in this industry (as with others scepticism is healthy) I dont trash the opposition, however I do feel that poor quality and bad customer service gets the whole industry a bad name and I do react badly to that when I see it, because it puts consumers off the concept and makes all our jobs harder.

As for shouting about how good you are, well If you are the best at what you do (as many of you on here must be to afford the wheels you have) why not say so :)

Sure, I expected it would need to be thicker.

Available as a self install kit for just the daytime flashers? Wouldn't be logical to travel all that way for such a small job.

It sounds like quite a number of "our own" are happy with your Company's work, which is a good start!

IMO Mr Hudson's previous car was not done well, but I'm fussy, as I think I'm entitled to be when someone charges me good money and fails to live up to their claims!

I would very much like to see a 355 front end that your Company has worked on, the pics that Rob very kindly posted up show very little..........which is 1/2 the battle! I want the film to be as inconspicuous as possible. This on the other hand makes it very difficult to ascertain where you stop applying the film. TBH my previous supplier suggested that they would trim the film around the indicators and front flashers, which I've flatly refused. IMO it's pointless to leave substantial areas uncovered as sod's law dictates that those will be the 1st parts to get hit!

Is there a chance that one of "your" 355s will be at Wicksteed? I think it would be a great opportunity to showcase your work to a moderately large receptive audience, particularly as I've made public the problems I've had to date! I'm still awaiting a satisfactory resolution with my car , failing which, I shall issue proceedings in the County Court. One advantage of having the time to surf the Net all day is having the time to pursue wrongdoers:wink3:

My car was done by a company called "Auto Asylum" in maidenhead and Paul did an outstanding job. Very much as Rob described he was extremely careful and took the better part of a day to make it perfect.

The paint shield product is spot on and many have seen my car and commented on the great job.

Highly recommended and cost 587.50 for half bonnet, wings and bumper.

I talk to all my clients personally, additionally, There is a discount structure off the pricing that is going to be posted by the mods and I dont want to pre-empt that, If you want us to do your car pick up the phone and talk to me I am not a market trader and hard pricing discussions in forums is something we typically do not do :) (No offence intended to market traders).

Pricing will vary as to whether we come to you or you come to us, or whether you have one component or everything we do, or whether you want a specific area done, that we currently do not do (Rob picked up on a point that everyone in the industry has missed on the 360) we even get asked to cover the whole car occassionally.

I am sorry if this seems vague its not meant to be it is just how we work.

Now that we have so many options (even more being done for the 355 which will include the whole of the lower side section below the side panel break) That discussing all the options on here for all Ferraris just becomes ludicrous.

If anyone wants a price its easy enough to pick up the phone 01476 592777

We answer the phones up untill 10 at night except number withelds (usually competitors or Hokey stockbrokers from NY) so please make sure you are showing your number else it will go to voicemail.

Yeah I can work out a club price and if the Club wants to sell them on to make a few bob I can sort something out (Can a Mod give me a bell on this)

I'm still awaiting a satisfactory resolution with my car , failing which, I shall issue proceedings in the County Court. One advantage of having the time to surf the Net all day is having the time to pursue wrongdoers:wink3:

I have no Idea Clive, the Car in the Photos is currently at Greypauls if you want to run up and check it out, I have asked that customer to come on here and he may already be lurking, however I believe it will not be back to us for the rear area work following repaint till sometime next week.

As for covering every single inch of every part of the car this is impracticable without Starting to take the car apart, pulling out Light arrays etc, something we violently avoid, we do (as Hud can tell you) lip over in areas on the front bumper (I trust I am understanding you right) however without talking to you in front of a car we have done, it is difficult to assess whether we address your particular concerns or not :(

There is a process called Vehicle wrapping which can take care of any exposed edge, however there are two downsides to this one it is VERY time consuming (consequently much more expensive if done properly) and WILL involve cutting somewhere on the car. It often also leaves a corner exposed on certain panels (like bonnets) We will not do this unless someone absolutely puts a gun to our heads and assumes ALL liabilities and has deep pockets.

IMHO the downsides of wrapping FAR outweigh the benefits, we have as you know from earlier threads, a design centre at Grantham and as Long as we have prior warning, we are flexible enough to design additional parts in areas that a client may feel needs additional protection, beyond that which we do as standard.

Best thing to do is take a run up to see us before that kit comes off and you can talk to Joe if he is around, about what you feel is needed and he can explain where our kit goes. There is no perfect solution to these issues (ours comes closer than most) however there are compromises that have to be made even with us.

ERR HUD watched us do one or I was imagining it? He did post pictures As did I, sorry unless I am missing something here what else can I do?? I guess you can bring one up and twenty of you can stand and watch us do it or do you want me to video the next one we do and post that as well??

AS for our Clients "Bigging us UP err those clients are your fellow members are they not and have in some cases been on here for some time so how do you mean can I walk the walk I am not trying to convince you to come to us and frankly if you are not convinced by your own members who have been here I don't want you??

I dont see anything unreasonable about asking serious clients to pick up the phone and ask for a price and discuss their individual needs also on standard products (not full coverage kits) we have distributors around the country who sell our product on their own behalf, this kind of approach then pre-determines their pricing (which is discourteous to them in all honesty)


I said at the outset we are different in how we approach things, what is important is the quality of our work and the customer service and the warranty we put behind our work and true value for Money, as I said elsewhere on a thread, we have (and still do) invite occassional clients to shop elsewhere.

Frankly if people are serious about this (rather than indulging in idle banter) it seems appropriate to at least pick up the phone (or not). I have been on other forums where this kind of discussion devolves down to "How Much? I can get dodge it and Bodgeit to respray my car for less than that" <yawn> So frankly I do not get into this anymore.

Auto asylum are one of our independent distributors incidently so I cannot comment on that pricing and am unsure what the car was, I can tell you I would not have charged what clive was charged for an industry Standard Kit (before club discounts) and yes we would have done a better job with a better warranty FACT!

In the Last 10 Days we have had eight Ferraris alone through our Unit One of them Huds, if you are going to See Red we will have (all things being equal) a Full frontal Kit on a Ferrari on the Graypaul Stand have a look for yourself (may not be a 355 though) more likely a 360 or 430 I would imagine.

we have done 3 Carrera GTs (one of them in JCT 600 groups showroom in leeds) in the last month alone Value Nearly a mils worth of cars Want to guess how many we have done for Porshce GB? I have frankly nothing to prove, I said a 355 was not hard to do and HUD saw I was right:) on an Average week we do about 15 New porkers for instance. Dont take this the wrong way a 355 is a great car but from the perspective of what we do its no big deal!

I dont even know what the first line means TBH mind you I am an old F**t so no surprise there:) as For serious I dont know what that means either! I was responding in General terms as to our preference for direct communication with potential clients, rather than getting into the How much for this bit how much for that bit nonsense on the Forum. This has always stood me in good stead with clients and I see no good reason to change it.

We are going to be offerring a thumping discount to the club that will be honoured by our Distibutors and US thats the best I can do, as Prices WILL vary between work we undertake ourselves work done on behalf of a car dealer and work our sub Distributors might do (as I indicated above). Thats just the way it is.

The mistake people make in this business is they think its just about product it isnt, its about service (the product is just the reason any of us exist) Every product when it rolls off the machine is perfect and identical to the last, it can look radically different when on the car depending on whether the person who fits it knows what they are doing or is a complete muppet!! Stating a price on a board tells you nothing about the capabilities of the people undertaking the work!!

For the record,i was not being critical of you,your product,your workmanship nor your after service.

Some of us on here do not have a bottomless pit of money and a ball park price for most things is required before we think about having work done to our cars....:thumbsup:

So pick up the phone numb nuts. im sure tom will accept reverse call if youre that bloody poor.

Not sure M8. Worth finding out tho. They reckon people in Goole have had it fitted on their Laminate floors to minimise wear.

If I had been on here a little longer I would have put it as succinctly as you HUD LOL

The reason BTW that I asked about the car is on the classics NO one in the industry usually has a design, so we would have to probably do one off your car :) The industry is only about nine years old (we are typically the only people who will entertain designs on an older Top Marque (and usually the only ones capable) The 1958 Alfa Owner on the other thread probably thinks I am a T*** (most people do), however they love what we did for them and NO one else would touch it :)

Dont own one Have driven a lot (we collect cars for customers you see) Yes I am trying to piss you off :laugh:

Personally cos I am an old anal type I am more suited to the BFB seats in a Vanquish (52 is a hard year)

The reason I dont own one is guys who do own one keep telling me how skint they are and beating me up on price. However if its necessary for my credibility on here to have one I can Double my prices to you all and then I can come on here head held high how does that sound :)

Problem was I was responding to two of you on the same thread about the same issue so being an old fat thick Geordie B******D I probably got confused between who I was responding to :) Toon army supporter what can you expect.

Easy done when you are me, Give me a call on your car and we will quote you a price for what you need doing. Otherwise you can always pop up and have a chat if you are out our way.

for these you will need to know how to use a hairdryer though (best feed you are ever going to get HUD) :)

Sounds great - thanks for that. Look forward to hearing something. As I have a Berlinetta rather than a Spider I'll have to get Hud to show me how to use a hairdryer.

Auto asylum are one of our independent distributors incidently so I cannot comment on that pricing and am unsure what the car was

My car is a Challenge Stradale and the job was half bonnet, wings, bumper and lower valance. It was a big job and they did a superb job. I believe that the price was very fair for the work performed and the job came with a full warranty and 1 year later it is still perfect. If I am upping them so be it , I reckon a good job deserves recognition. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
