With Ford just announcing their new all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E and the public getting its first looks at the vehicle many people have been placing deposits.
Having worked on hundreds of Mustang’s over the years, from vintage Shelby’s to brand new GT’s we’re experts in what these cars need to keep them looking brand new for years to come.
Paint Protection Film
When the Mach-E first becomes available many of the new owners will be planning on keeping this vehicle for years to come. Especially as a first-generation. So new owners will want to not only protect the paint but also maintain the resale value of the vehicle. With a front end of mostly painted surfaces, the front end is not only going to be a chip magnate but also prone to bugs, staining, and many other issues.
Paint protection film offers the best protection available and is the longest-lasting paint protection available. It is the only product on the market that can offer protection from rock chips, road debris, swirls, staining, and etching. If you plan on keeping the vehicle for years to come it is the best way to maintain that factory finish. It also helps make washing the vehicle easier with its hydrophobic topcoat.
If you don’t want to spend the money to do a full car wrap then wrapping the high impact areas of the vehicle, like the front bumper, and the front portion of the hood and fenders is highly recommended as the minimum amount that should be wrapped. These areas see the most damage from road debris. The rear cargo entry is another area we highly recommend protecting.
Ceramic coatings are a great way to add shine and hydrophobic qualities to the finish of any Ford. The coating is about 10x harder than a regular automotive clear coat. While it will still swirl, chip or etch, it does offer an additional layer of protection and is stronger to resist these issues than an automotive clear coat is. When corrected you’re not removing your Mach-E’s clear coat, but rather the ceramic coating.
It helps to offer UV protection as well. An important benefit to a vehicle with already thin paint. Over the years the paint will become faded and damaged from the sun and elements. Ceramic coatings prevent this and protect the paint from damage.
Another benefit to the ceramic coating is ease of maintenance. The hydrophobic qualities of the coating make washing easier. It also helps dust to be blown off the vehicle.
