Suggestions for clear bra installer

I need to get the front end of my car covered with XPEL or similar. Does anyone have a recommendation for a really good installer?
Thanks!
-Mike

I used Sun & Shade in Creamery, PA, just off of Rt 112. The installer Wayne has done a few cars for me including my 2014 Corvette. Great install and easy to work with.

Thank you. I looked at them for another car a couple of years ago but they have a ton of bad reviews. Someone else suggested Seven Wraps on Industrial Blvd in Holland. Anyone have any experience with them?

Thanks for all the recommendations. I got 4 recommendations for Ryan at Seven Wraps. I got to see his work on a Lamborghini and could not tell it was there. He wrapped all corners and after 2 days no marks or bubbles anywhere. I highly recommend Seven Wraps on Industrial BLVD in Holland.

Depends on how much you want covered. Check out Corvette Forum.

Prices for bumper, half the hood, mirrors, $1389 to $1425.

Whole car except trunk and rear fascia. $3700

3M product is 8mil thick other products are 6mil.

Have you gotten prices from the local installers?

Here is what I received so far from Seven Wraps.

Thanks for contacting us. We offer paint protection packages using Xpel Ultimate, SunTek PPF-C, or PremiumShield films. All 3 include a generous warranty from the manufacturers. To cover just your front bumper would be $600. To cover your front bumper and 1/4 of the fenders and hood would be $1,200. To cover the full front bumper, hood, and fenders would be $1,700. The films are approx 8mils thick and are completely invisible when installed on a full body panel. They prevent rock chips, sandblasting, nicks, scratches, etc. Other areas of the car can also be covered.

Seven Wraps just did my hellcat, tinted the windows too, really did great work, they will be moving to Newtown in early 2017, to a bigger shop that they are buying. Had my C7 Z06 wrapped in Canada (was there getting things done) everything was wrapped roof included and it was 3500 us

Sounds like Caravaggio to me.

Can't wait to see it.
