My GT R Pro is Damaged - Can PPF Save the Day?

  προβολές 210,908


Πριν 27 ημέρες

Bad times for my AMG GT R Pro, it's taken a knock to the back but let's see if Topaz PPF can save the day! While the carbon part certainly needs replacing, fears of having to respray bodywork do not go down well, so step one is certainly to find out if that can be avoided. It happens, and fortunately it's not worse!
A few days ago I took out the GT R Pro for a drive and while it was parked up on private land, unfortunately it was clipped at the back by a buggy towing a trailer, which made a small amount of damage to the bumper and diffuser. The specific part that caught it was the wheel arch cover on the right side of the trailer, making contact to the GT R Pro's painted bumper, carbon diffuser, and carbon heatshield on the exhaust.
The first question is has the PPF saved the Diamond White paint? As with most of the Shmeemobiles, the Pro has full paint protection film from Topaz Detailing including the rear bumper and it's safe to assume without this the surface of the rear bumper would have taken a fair old beating and now require some form of blended respray. However, PPF serves multiple purposes, including protecting the paint and also being easy to clean. While I feared it might need a new piece of film installed, with the right gear fortunately it's even easier than that!
The carbon diffuser is of course a different story, requiring a new main diffuser component and also the exhaust surround, fortunately though these parts are not as expensive as you might expect on such a car, coming in at £1,750 including VAT but of course before labour to be replaced. Thankfully the other party has accepted liability for the incident and all should be swiftly and smoothly resolved; with only the need to replace a bolt-on part making it exactly as new. My biggest fear by far was if there'd been a need for any kind of respray, which would have been a complete disaster on pearl metallic paintwork.
There's more news today though on the future of the Shmeemobiles; they will now be finding a new home! I have given in notice on my leases for the parking spaces as times have changed and it no longer suits my needs, so after 4 years in the storage I will be moving to a new facility. That is not specifically set at this stage; perhaps for a while they go to Germany, maybe out of London, until ultimately settling on a home for a Shmuseum venue down the line.
Be sure to follow Topaz Detailing's new channel as well:
Thanks for watching, Tim

It's not ideal, but it could have been far worse, and thankfully the Topaz PPF on my AMG GT R Pro has done a magnificent job of protecting the paintwork after the car took a small knock. Unfortunately it was parked in the wrong place, at the wrong time, but it happens and will be fine.

Scuff mark that could’ve cleaned in the way us mortals do it, some kitchen roll and washing up liquid, google them, you’re probably unfamiliar with them....... Yes, thanks to global warming having lots of expensive petrol guzzling cars driven for pleasure are becoming less acceptable. Luckily it’s a rich persons issue, you’ll just move. The rest of us are forced onto public transport or paying large % of income just to get to a job you hate but have to tolerate to pay the bills.

Have you never considered moving completely over to Germany especially with all the Brexit madness going on? It seems like you are most of the time here in Germany therefore it would be easier to have all the cars over in Germany. Maybe it would be even cheaper I don't know.

I'm not quite sure but I heard that even in the production line of the Mercedes C-class the front/rear bumper are painted seperately from the other parts. So there might be always a slight difference between the bumpers and the body parts. Therefore I see no point to repaint any other part next to the rear bumper just to match the colour.

I would definitely not enjoy driving in London just by seeing some of your videos. The powers that be have obviously decided to make London unfriendly to car owners. It looks like the person who damaged your Mercedes got off relatively easy for the fix. The buff out was a big relief for the at fault driver’s insurance company. £1700 I guess isn’t that bad for carbon fibre parts on an exotic vehicle.😳🤔 I think you had better think much harder about storage outside London, maybe buy a property and build your own shelter to your needs with getting off the grid and put in solar panels and auxiliary Tesla type wall batteries.

Short answer actually, you can only renew in 12 month leases, and I don't want to commit to another £30k expenditure on a space I'm not happy with. If they would do it in rolling months I might keep it going but not like this.

I’m relatively new to your channel but during lockdown, I’ve consumed a big slice, Thank you! Anyways, I watched a few of your videos when you brought the Ford GT stateside and you seemed to have fun on the West Coast (California, Oregon & Washington) but I never saw you post a map of the roads you actually drove while out here (perhaps you did but I missed it, if not, it’s something that I’ve rarely seen on GRpost but should be posted for numerous reasons. Yeah I’m sure there are numerous reasons why maps aren’t posted that I’m unable to grasp because I’m not a creator although I suspect police, stalkers, thieves, scammers and insurance must be in there somewhere-would posting a map after the completion of the trip help mitigate those potential problems?) I just wanted to suggest that you might consider Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 especially if you enjoyed driving any of the gorgeous roads on the west coast USA 🇺🇸 that were NOT interstates (basically Rotes 5, 15, 215, 405, 605, 10, 110, 210-SoCal or 80, 205, 280, 580, 680, 780, 880-Bay Area or 5, 50, 80, 99-Sac. Some parts of those roads can definitely be beautiful but the traffic and/or standing structures make them no contest to roads adjacent or off the beaten path which is especially true for 90% of those numbered interstates that are south of Santa Rosa all the way to San Diego which is basically where 90% of the population lives in this state lol). Route 101 north of Santa Rosa has been and pretty much stays beautiful, with exceptions, all the way through Oregon and up to Port Angeles/Port Townsend which are 2 well known towns on Puget Sound, Washington (PA, WA has ferry to Victoria, BC and PT, WA has ferry to get north of Seattle with whales almost always seen and bridges connecting either side of cliff faces that look like they are straight out of an 8k screen saver). So having spent a combined 16 years living on the West Coast, driving almost all the lower 48 states and traveling internationally, I do consider myself lucky and somewhat spoiled by the beauty that I’ve witnessed so far. As I’ve only been to 13 countries (not including my own, even though the variation of the environment, terrain, landscape and surrounding can vastly vary from state to state, even county to county, the fact that there’s a McDonalds and Starbucks every 6 miles can dampen the diversity). Still my feeling is the same about the West Coast USA+BC even as it currently burns, these lands were hand sculpted by “the gods”. All the 13 countries I have had the privilege to visit, regardless of duration, have remained unforgettable with each doing so in wonderfully unexpected ways but the catch is that aside from the West Coast USA+BC vistas being hand sculpted by the gods, I’ve only witnessed 2 countries that gave me that impression. I know that my view is narrow and there are picture perfect roadways scattered all over the globe and I hope someday I will have the honor to drive at least 1 more. Greece was fantastical, awe inspiring and I felt the ancient history just as strong on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea off the Isle of Crete as I did walking through the rubble of the Acropolis, and it was close to that feeling. Each place has had at least a moment where I’ve felt close to that environment being hand sculpted by the gods. Only Japan 🇯🇵 and Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 gave me that same feeling, that wasn’t fleeting and time made no difference because be it hours, days or weeks, I wanted to never leave. People are diverse and so too is our planet, and it’s great that some can find beauty where I can not and vice versa, but as a UK resident who is moving to the country and loves driving and knows or will know that the driving and living can be greatly enhanced by the surroundings, it would be a most excellent choice to put down some roots (and routes) up north where the roads are just hundreds of miles of beautiful vistas and beautiful tarmac! If you ever get this far in my novel of a comment, from what little I know about your life, I can imagine you thinking of something like “yes Scotland roads are incredible BUT it’s so far from the Channel tunnel and another positive about moving out of London would be a chance to be closer to mainland Europe”. If that’s the case, I can appreciate that but I have a healthy (or completely distorted) fear of where western civilization appears to be heading right now. And I understand people fleeing from cities all over but the “suburbs” aren’t far enough. Growing up, I knew people who’s family spent multiple generations living between NYC and Philadelphia, it’s less than 100 miles!!! And remember how young this country still is, because saying multiple generations usually means 3-4 but to people here that’s like saying 10 generations in Europe, or a well established family, lol. GOOD LUCK ON YOUR MOVE, TL;DR=It’s a smart time to get out of a city if you can and if you have the means to get far away to a place that’s beautiful with great, fun roads, do Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿. Sure the drive to the Eurotunnel will be less convenient but you will be living and driving around countryside hand sculpted by the gods. And when the French decide they are finished being the angry assholes of Europe because over the last hundred years, they didn’t know who was drawing their borders, they decide to “nationalize” and do something more outrageous than just sell cheap drugs, stop allowing the rest of Europe use their roadways to go through France to go to a real country and admit they never knew how to make good chocolate, you will be so relieved that you’re not close to the newly named Frog Tunnel or living on the French annexed side originally called Dover but newly christened New Louis 😂
