Protecting My FORD GT! The World's Best PPF

  • Published on:  1/8/2019
  • A vital part of getting my Ford GT ready and set for the road is to install PPF at Topaz! After dropping the car with the team, I catch up with Nabil to inspect the results of the detailing before the PPF installation process gets underway... in some pretty spectacular company!

    To produce the best possible paint finish, the Topaz team have given the Ford GT a complete machine polish with multiple stages to really bring out the depth and create a mirror-like finish while removing any defects from the surface. After an inspection with Nabil from Topaz to see the results, I then go for an exploration of the workshop that's currently loaded with many very special cars including a Koenigsegg One:1, another Ford GT (out of a small number in the UK!) and both a McLaren P1 and Senna - safe to say my car is in amazing company.

    Next we talk about how the PPF process works for a car like the Ford GT, something that's incredibly bespoke and requires templates to be made that can cover the entirety of the car. This is important to protect it for the future and ensure it will always look
    its best possible. Then it's time to show parts of the process behind installing PPF and how exactly you protect such a car in this way, with the film vanishing upon completion and being almost invisible to the human eye.

    Nabil then takes us over to the new unit that is currently under development to give an insight into what's coming next for Topaz - and exciting things are certainly coming on the horizon.

    You can also find out more about Topaz with the following links:

    Naturally, it's a process that takes a bit of time so the car is in their safe hands to be finished and hopefully ready for collection in the not too distant future!

    Thanks for watching, Tim

    It wouldn't be a new Shmeemobile without a visit to Topaz for detailing and installation of PPF to protect it in the best possible way for the adventures ahead! I caught up with Nabil to inspect the detailing results and find out how the process works for a car like this; as well as exploring around some incredibly cars including a Koenigsegg One:1!

    @shmee150 have a look at @dragtimes video of him wrapping his ford GT with ppf. He installed a custom mesh to protect the body from stones thrown up from the front tyres.
    Seems like a must have.

    Geez mate, you're pretty lucky to own cars like that. It's good that you share it with other people. It's pretty amazing to see the process involved in protecting them. Good from an investment point of view but I would drive the shit out of it without the paint protection but just look after it when it needs it. Each to their own I guess.

    Very interesting to watch how they put the protective film on, but if I was working there I would be so pissed if someone stood right next to me and commented on everything I was doing while I was working xD
