Clear Bra, also known as paint protection film, has become a popular way to protect a vehicle’s paint from scratches, dents, or swirls caused by road debris, rocks, bug droppings, and other environmental elements.  Clear Bras are a clear or colored polyurethane film that works as an invisible layer of armor over your car’s finish.

AMC uses only high quality films from Suntek. The film is 99.5 percent optically clear and virtually invisible to detect.  Paint protection film is removable without damage to the vehicle’s paint.  Suntek provides pre-sized precision templates custom fit to your car.  AMC expertly installs the high quality auto film, preventing peeling, cracking, yellowing, and blistering which may occur when lesser quality brands are used.

Clear Bras vs Cloth Bras

Cloth bras are the traditional method used by many to attempt to protect the front end of vehicles from road debris, insects, etc.  There are limitations to the effectiveness of cloth bras.  They are not a permanent solution for vehicle paint protection and can shift around causing chafing on the vehicle paint.  Further, a continuous layer of moisture forms under the bra cloth that will eventually cause clouding on the clear coat. A clear auto bra is a permanent solution for vehicle paint protection.  It adheres to the painted surfaces without damaging the paint and does not change the appearance of the vehicle.

Not Only for the Front End

Clear bras can be installed on any of the following areas:

  • Headlights
  • Bumpers
  • Hood
  • Fenders
  • Wheel wells
  • Door handles
  • Mirrors
  • A-pillars

Installation of Film

The urethane film is applied using a similar method to window tint.  The time installation on your vehicle will take depends on how large the coverage area is and the model of your vehicle. It can take anywhere from a couple of hours to a full day.  Smaller jobs can be speedier. When auto film is applied to much of the vehicle’s surface, installation can take up to a few days.

Durability of Suntek Paint Protection Film (Clear Bra)

Suntek paint protection film is warranted against cracking, fading or yellowing for 10 years. The auto film is UV stable, so sun fading is uniform across the paint surfaces of the vehicle.  The film is energy absorbent, ensuring protection from stones that jump up from the roadway.  Suntek also protects your car from getting scratched during an automatic car wash! The film will not decrease the illumination quality of headlights or any other lights it is applied to.  It is virtually undetectable to the human eye.  When first applied, headlights may appear foggy as a result of the alcohol/water solution used during the installation process.  The solution evaporates under the film within a few days, leaving only crystal clear protection for years to come.

How to Care for Your Suntek Clear Bra

Regularly wash your vehicle with auto cleaner to keep the Protective Film free of debris and dirt.  Regular wax or the application of a ceramic coating will enhance the appearance of your car and further protect the vehicle.

Motorcycle PDR is a cutting-edge way to restore your motorcycle tank or fender to like-new condition. With our exclusive Mail-Order MPDR service, AMC Customs can perform these repairs quickly and affordably no matter where you live!

How It Works

As soon as you bring in or ship your gas tank or fender, we get to work! Our state-of-the-art repair instruments allow us to safely and securely remove dents from motorcycle tanks and fenders using our Motorcycle Paintless Dent Repair (MPDR) techniques.

MPDR can repair anything from vintage motorcycle tanks to sleek modern tanks. By preserving your custom paint job, factory paint, and even rare original finish, it saves both time and money compared to conventional body repair.

Cons of Conventional Repairs

How do you remove a dent from a motorcycle tank or fender?  The conventional answer to this question is by removing the component, rubbing it down or removing the paint with stripper, applying filler to the damaged areas, and then rubbing the filler down before re-painting the entire thing.   Not only is this process time and labor intensive, it still may not result in a perfectly smooth finish.

Conventional dent removal usually requires the tank to remain on the bike, which limits tank access for complete dent removal. This approach also risks damaging other parts of the bike in the repair process.

At AMC Custom Auto we offer over two decades of experience in motorcycle restoration.  Utilizing MPDR over conventional methods takes less time and results in a superior, like-new finish without repainting.

The Motorcycle Paintless Dent Repair Process

Before restoration begins, we secure your tank or fender firmly with a custom vice designed specifically for motorcycle PDR so it will not move around during the process. The vice allows us to position the angles in order to obtain the perfect tool leverage and protect the tank or fender throughout the process.We carefully remove dents in the tank or fender with specially designed tools that gently pull the damaged area out to make it a smooth surface again. This eliminates dents without any harm to your factory or custom finish.

Motorcycle Paintless Dent Repair Overcomes Repair Challenges

Removing dents from motorcycle tanks and fenders can be tricky.  Access can often be an issue.  Motorcycle tanks have their caps on the top, usually at the highest point, to allow for maximum filling capacity. Unfortunately, the gas caps on motorcycle tanks are not large openings.  This restriction makes it difficult to remove the dents from the inside.

Additionally, some motorcycle gas tanks are double skinned – kind of like a tank inside of a tank. This makes it very difficult to remove the dent as pressure is applied to the inside metal skin rather than the outside metal skin where the dent actually is. MPDR is performed on the outside when working with this type of gas tank.

Properly performed, the dent will vanish completely and the repair will be invisible.  Well executed, motorcycle paintless dent removal will never be detected because there is nothing left to see.

Motorcycle Paintless Dent Repair by Mail

Wherever you live, you can send your dented gas tank or fender to us here at AMC.

When using our mail-in MPDR service, send photos so we can give an accurate quote for MPDR on your gas tank or fender. We will review the damage and provide a free estimate.

For expedited repair services, follow our shipping instructions carefully to ensure your parts arrive safely.

Ceramic Coating

Keep your vehicle protected!

IGL makes waxing obsolete! IGL is an excellent choice for those looking for a permanent or semi-permanent, durable protective coating on automobiles, boats and motorcycles. IGL is a multi-layerable, clear, liquid nano-ceramic coating. Once the coating has cured, the coating becomes a permanent, rigid yet flexible glass shield.

IGL protects the surface of your vehicle from minor scratches, dirt, ageing, premature oxidation and even graffiti. The coating protects your vehicle from environmental hazards, such as acid rain, bird droppings, tar, watermarks and sticky sap, to name a few.

It also provides UV, oxidation, corrosion and chemical resistance.

Not to mention, a vehicle that has been sealed with an IGL coating stays clean for longer due to its ability to repel water.
When applied to boats, the coating also protects against corrosion and algae build up. Furthermore, IGL Coatings are non-toxic, completely free of carcinogenic materials making it environmentally friendly! 

Application Process

The first step to creating a flawless ceramic protective coating is the detailed preparation of the surface it is to be applied to.  AMC prides itself on its professional surface preparation process.  When used correctly, not only will IGL Coatings enhance the overall application process and offer a huge increase in durability and protection, but provides a wealth of gloss and depth.  Minor imperfections and swirl marks are removed with Nano-Polish, prior to an IGL coating sealing the surface permanently.

Durability

IGL coating is permanent.  It can only be removed when utilizing machine polish. IGL has multi-layering capabilities which translate to increasing thickness and protection with each additional coat that is applied.

IGL Kenzo, specifically, is a permanent coating that lasts 5+ years without re-application, as opposed to a lighter duty coating which will only provide 2-3 years of protection.  With regular re-application every few years, your IGL coating could last the lifetime of the vehicle.

The coating, however, is only as good as the pros who are applying it.  Here at AMC, we carefully prep each surface and apply ceramic coatings expertly, leaving a smooth, polished finish to last for years to come.

Benefits of IGL

  • Permanent Protection
  • Easy to Clean Surface
  • Anti-Graffiti Enabled

Paintless Dent Repair

It'll be like it never happened

Regardless of how careful we are with our vehicles, dents and dings do happen. Paintless Dent Repair is a great option for removing those dents & dings. AMC’s certified PDR technicians take great pride in returning the aluminum or metal panels back to factory shape, without damaging the vehicles custom or factory painted surface. The techniques used at AMC Customs  provide fast, convenient and cost-effective repairs to keep your vehicle looking like new.

Cons of Conventional Auto-Body Repair

Conventional auto body repair is expensive and those repairs are most often time-consuming. The bondo and body fillers used in this process can shrink or crack over time and also contain harsh chemicals. Furthermore, factory paint, especially metallic and three stage paint, can be nearly impossible to match.

Your vehicle could be in the body shop for two to three weeks or longer, leaving you without transportation or an expensive rental car bill. Paintless Dent Repair is clearly a better choice!

Pros of Using Paintless Dent Repair (PDR)

The Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) method removes dents and dings quickly, much faster than conventional body shop repairs.  With Paintless Dent Removal, there are no fillers and there is no sanding.  PDR is by far the most non-invasive dent removal process available today.

Paintless Dent Repair has been around since the 1930’s, and lately it has been gaining popularity because its not only an effective alternative, but an inexpensive technique for having minor repairs done. PDR offers a considerably higher ROI (return on investment) than traditional dent repair.

What types of damage can PDR repair?

  • Minor dents
  • Dings
  • Body creases
  • Hail damage
  • Plastic bumper dents
  • Motorcycle gas tank damage

PDR is a great option for any type of damage that hasn’t gone into the paint. In most cases, as long as the paint has remained intact, PDR is very successful!

How the Paintless Dent Repair Process Works

The first step to any repair process is to evaluate the damage. Most dents, creases and dings can be repaired using PDR, as long as the paint surface has not been damaged. Once the damaged area has been evaluated and its deemed a candidate for Paintless Dent Repair, an AMC PDR technician will begin to prepare your vehicle for repair.

The majority of the time, the technician will need to access the back side of the dent, which often leads to the delicate removal of exterior body panels, tail lights, and at times, interior panels.

AMC’s PDR technicians use precision tools to skillfully manipulate the underside of the vehicle panel, returning the aluminum or metal back to its original factory shape, resulting in a smooth, damage free surface. Your factory paint remains unaffected and dents are erased.  Permanently. The skill of the technician directly impacts the quality of the repair. At AMC, we take pride in performing this artistry, so only the highest quality Paintless Dent Repair is achieved.

Automobile owners are not the only ones who benefit from PDR. PDR has also become popular among auto dealerships who use the process to prepare used vehicles for resale, guaranteeing a higher value.  Body shops utilize PDR as an add-on service by partnering with PDR providers such as AMC. PDR has actually been around for decades, it is thought to have its origins in the 1930’s. Automobile factories, such as Mercedes Benz, would have “dingmen”, who would utilize crude implements, such as, spoons and their bare hands to push out dents.  PDR has advanced greatly since then, now many specialized tools have been created to help our technicians skillfully massage the panels back into shape.
