Model 3 paint correction with Feynlab Self Healing Ceramic Coating

Model 3 paint correction with a two-step process: Spraying with Feynlab Panel Prep and then applying one layer of Feynlab Self Heal Lite and one layer of Feynlab Ceramic Coating as a top coat to give it that extra glossy and slickness. The main advantage compared to PPF such as XPEL is that this one lasts longer. Note that this is a certified installer only product.

New Model Y DIY Paint Protection Film offered by Tesla

Tesla is now offering their own PPF for the Model Y. For their first product in this category, Tesla is targetting an area that suffers a lot, especially for those who live in cold climates where snow and sand can damage the car. This new accessory consists of 2x clear protective film for rear fenders and 1x squeegee. It seems like a good option if you like DIYs and don’t want to spend a lot of money on a PPF for the whole car. As someone who may get their Model Y soon, I’d like to see what folks say of its quality and how it compares to other brands that we like and trust like Tesbros.
