FAQ

Everything you need to know…..all in one place.

We offer both removable and permanent coatings to fit your needs. These coatings come in 3 different finishes:
-Matte -Satin -Ultra High Gloss

We offer a ton of different brands, all unique in their own way:
-Halo EFX Coatings, Vinyl Films, Automotive Paint, Paint Protection and Ceramic Coatings
*We no longer offer Plasti Dip. We install only the most expensive and durable coatings available on the market for our customers*

Halo EFX is our Premium Wrap Coating
Halo comes in a Matte, Satin or Gloss finish. Halo has a lifespan of 2-5 years in a Matte finish and over 5+ years in a Gloss finish. Halo is a great choice for those who want a long lasting and durable finish on the full body of their vehicle. 100% Safe & Removable back to stock.

Vinyl
We use Vinyl Films for Headlight & Taillight Tinting and custom window decals or designs. We use 3M & Oracle Films rated at 5+ years.

Automotive Paint
Automotive Paint is our Permanent Option. We can do small accents and wheels as well as paint correction services like dings, rock chips and repair. We repaint body panels such as hoods, fenders and bumpers and accept all insurance companies.

Paint Protection Coatings
Paint Protection, also known as PPF or PPS, is a Clear Gloss Coating that protects your OEM paint from rock chips, fading, swirls, bug damage and more. Completely invisible and can be safely removed in the future. Most people opt to apply PPF to the front end of their vehicles as this is what takes the blunt of rocks while driving, and coat over the entire vehicle with a Ceramic Coating for the ultimate paint protection.

Ceramic Coatings
Ceramic Coatings are taking over the paint protection and detailing market!
An invisible layer of hydrophobic silica is applied to your oem clearcoat in layers. Ceramic Coatings make dirt, mud, bugs, rain, ect. unable to stick and bond to your vehicle. 
One time professional installation – never wax your car again. We also use a Ceramic coating that far surpasses what you’ll get at another shop. You do not have to keep coming back every 3-4 months for booster coats. That is a lower end coating you should avoid.
We are the areas Master Approved and Certified IGL Kenzo installers, the best ceramic coating on the market.

Why choose Halo EFX “Peelable Paint” over Vinyl Films?

Halo EFX is a safe and seamless wrap, with no cut lines or edges seamed together. No worrying about if we left behind razor marks in your stock paint. Halo does not leave behind glue and adhesive etching into your clearcoat and does not have to be removed within a certain amount of years. Halo is 70% glossier than vinyl and has much more depth. The Gloss levels do not even compare! Vinyl does not hold up or wrap around trim, so Halo EFX is the best option all the way around. 
   
What is a Liquid Wrap?
A Liquid Wrap is the Future of Affordable Paint Protection and Customization.
Sprayed on in a similar method as automotive paint, peels off by hand similar to a vinyl wrap. 3M Bras and Vinyl Wraps leave behind adhesives, our product does not! We do not sand down a vehicle prior to a wrap installation. A Liquid Wrap is 100% safe and removable when you are ready. It keeps your clear coat underneath safe and protected from every day elements such as road debris, fading, rock chips and more!

Why the name – Liquid Wrap?
Our product comes in a “liquid” form, and is sprayed on to coat and “wrap” over your vehicle. Thus the term “liquid wrap”.

Why Addiption?
Great question! What makes us stand out? We have been in business for over 7 years in the Tampa Bay area, customizing over 600+ vehicles each year alone. We are the only shop in a 100 mile radius that does this full time. We work out of a commercial shop (not a home garage). Inside of our shop you will see our office/showroom with tons of examples of our products and tons of color samples. All work is completed in a light room and paint booth giving us professional, high quality and clean results. 

We are fully licensed, bonded and insured for your comfort. Our premises is under full security and camera surveillance at all times. 

How long will it take for a full vehicle wrap to be completed?
Our Matte & Satin wraps take 3-4 full days to complete. Full Gloss wraps take an average of 7-10 days.
This ensures proper installation and curing time before you leave the premises. If weather does not permit- (high levels of humidity, excessive rain, or freezing temperatures) we may ask to hold your vehicle an extra day to avoid any issues with curing. Full car wraps can not be picked up if they have not had a minimum of 4 hours in direct sunlight after installation. (This does not apply to accent work)

How long will it take for a full chrome blackout, brake caliper painting or wheel painting to be completed?
All accent work has a 24 hour turn around time and we are available by appointment 7 days a week.

Does it really peel off?
Yes, it really does peel off. We always apply a minimum of 7-10 thick coats, not only for durability, but to ensure it peels off in large pieces when you are ready.

What is the Prep Process for Accent Work & Full Vehicle Wraps?
Prep work is one of the MOST important parts of the process. For Full Vehicles we safely remove all trim, emblems, and rubber seals to give you a clean wrap with no adhesion issues. We mask off all parts of the vehicle that are not getting coated.
We ask that you wash the vehicle prior to your appointment with a dish detergent or de-greaser to rid of all wax, oil, grease, and tire shine. All of which will effect the way your car wrap adheres.

What is your Warranty?
We stand behind our work 100%. You are covered against product and installation error (bubbles and peels along an edge) for 60 days. Rest assured, we have never had a customer come back with a warranty issue after the product cure time. If this is the case, we will take care of you. We strive to make our customers happy. Any damage caused by improper care, failure to wash, accidents and vandalism are not covered under warranty.

Could a Car Wrap damage my clear coat?
Liquid Wraps have been sprayed on thousands of vehicles and removed with no damage to the clear coat at all. However, our manufacturer has stated if you have paint that is already chipping, in bad condition, or an aftermarket paint job, you may have paint peel off in areas when removing our coatings. Our shop has never had an unsafe removal.

What is the texture/feel of a Wrap?
If installed professionally, you will get an extremely flat and smooth finish. If applied at home or a shop that is not skilled and does not spray in a paint booth, you will end up with rough and grainy texture. Our work is smooth and texture-free.

How do I care for my Car Wrap?
Matte and Satin Wraps can be easily hand washed with regular car wash soap. Please use a soft microfiber towel as brushes and bristles may effect the finish of your wrap. Dry the vehicle with a clean Chamois (Shammy). Many customers have taken their wrapped car through a car wash, but since all car washes can be set up differently, we only recommend hand washing. Do not rub or scratch at your wrap. Soak stains and bugs in small areas at a time with “Purple Power” and rinse immediately off.
We recommend applying a spray-on-wax after drying such as “Turtle Wax Ice”. We carry these items in stock in our office for purchase. Always ask before applying a cleaning product on your wrap. Avoid non water-based tire shines.
Our High Gloss Coatings can be cleaned the same way you would a factory paint job. Avoid using a pressure washer and do not blast at the wrap.

Do you use cans or a paint gun to apply your coatings?
We use a Sata 5000 rp spray gun with a compressor to leave a smooth streak free finish on the body. Some smaller items may require a detail gun for tight angles and edges. We do NOT use spray cans and we do not use plasti dip products.
