Americas Sports Car

Paint Protection for Your Corvette

Since 1953, Chevrolet has been producing the two door sports car we’ve come to know & love… the Corvette. After many years throughout the history of the ‘Vette and countless stories of a mid-engined corvette, the 2020 model year marked the start of a new era, the mid-engined, supercaresque C8 Chevrolet Corvette. With supercar benchmarked performance figures & a style that rivals foreign exotics… it’s no wonder why we call it, Americas Sports Car

Automotive Elegance, the Corvette Headquarters

Automotive Elegance is the home to Americas Sports Car. Specializing in XPEL Paint Protection Films (Clear Bra), Ceramic Coatings & Window Tinting… many owners make their first stop in their brand new C8 with us here in Andover, MA. Many owners chose to protect their Corvettes with a Combination of XPEL Paint Protection Film & Ceramic Coating! It’s no secret that with a low-sling profile the C8 Corvette has that it’s more susceptible to rock chips, nicks and scratches…. And let’s be honest… there’s nothing worse than washing your new Corvette with less than 500 miles & seeing rock chips that can be prevented! XPEL Paint Protection Film (Clear Bra) is your solution; a virtually invisible physical barrier for your paint. This is the only product on the marketplace to preserve your new ‘vettes paint finish. Whether you’ve ordered it in Red Mist Metallic or Ceramic Matrix Grey Metallic, we can all agree that you want to keep the paint looking as new as possible for as long as possible!

XPEL Paint Protection Film (Clearbra) & Ceramic Coating – C8 Corvette

The most popular packages for our C8 Corvette owners is a combination of XPEL Paint Protection Film (Clear Bra) & Ceramic Coating. For the XPEL Paint Protection Film (Clear Bra), our Platinum Plus Package is the package of choice for most owners as this package provides exceptional protection in the highly exposed areas. The Platinum Plus Package consists of XPEL Paint Protection Film (Clear Bra) being installed on the Full Front Bumper, Full Hood, Full Front Fenders, Headlights, Sideview Mirrors, Rocker Panels (into intake duct), Lower Doors, and the Rear mud section on the rear bumper.

To take the protection to the next level and really show off the sleek body lines at a car show or even to your neighbors… Ceramic Coatings are the answer. A Ceramic Coating is the next generation of surface protection replacing traditional waxing! Say good-bye to those liquid sealants and paste waxes… hello long lasting shine and ease of maintenance! Our Ceramic Coating package includes a single-stage paint correction, beautifying the paint before the installation of XPEL Paint Protection Film (Clear Bra) and is then Ceramic Coated as the final touch!

The Automotive Elegance C8 Corvette Process

Once the vehicles paint is removed of defects such as swirl marks, light scratches, hazing etc., we would install the desired XPEL paint protection film (clear bra) package. Once the paint protection film is installed, it’s left to cure & dry as needed whether it be for a few hours or overnight. Before the application of Ceramic Coating takes place, a careful inspection of the paint protection film installation occurs. Keep in mind, the installation of Paint Protection Film is an art. There are general installation guidelines which all of our jobs must follow but no two installations will be the same! After the vehicle has completed the quality checking stage, we begin prep for the application of ceramic coating by completing a full panel wipe down with a product such as CarPro Eraser to ensure the panels are free of all foreign materials and residues. Now the careful application of Ceramic Coating begins. Working in small sections no larger than 2’ x 2’, the installer applies a highly concentrated liquid solution that bonds to the substrate on a molecular level and is then levelled off after flashing. This tedious procedure is completed on the entire exterior envelope of the clients’ vehicles. After the full exterior is coated in our climate-controlled facility, a final quality check is performed before the vehicle is left to cure for 12 hours (overnight) to 24 hours to help promote a proper cure process.

As much as you are longing for your vehicle after waiting months of searching or building your own C8 from GM, this level of protection is one you will enjoy when you look at your glossy, rock chip free ‘vette with, say, a few thousand miles, compared to looking at a peppered and chipped bumper.
