Your Beginner’s Guide to Tesla Paint Protection and Auto-Detailing

Updated: Sep 21

So, you’ve taken the plunge, and have invested in an eco-friendly, clean energy Tesla. You’ve spent hours researching the economics of owning your very own Tesla, and now it’s time to think about paint protection and auto detailing for your Tesla. Aside from the tax-breaks, you’re excited to never have to pay for gas or for an oil change again!

So how do you make the most out of your investment and preserve the value of your car, while maximizing return? Teslas are notorious for having weak paint, being prone to rock chips, scratches, and “spider webs”, and must be treated with extra care. Read on to learn more about Tesla paint protection and make the most out of your new investment!

Get Your Tesla Professionally Detailed

Auto-detailing is so much more than just a car wash. Improper washing can damage your Tesla's paint, have your car professionally detailed to avoid costly mistakes.

To begin, automatic car washes are far too abrasive. The harsh bristles and low-quality shampoos used by auto car washes can even leave paint chips or swirl marks on your new Tesla. Low-quality shampoos are generally not pH- balanced, and hence, can lead to acid corrosion over time. Luckily, all of these costly mistakes are easily avoidable.

Automatic car washes also neglect the interior of the vehicle. Preserving the inside of your Tesla is just as important as maintaining the outside, and should not be overlooked!

Professionals, like Wetwerks Autospa, prefer to hand wash using the two-bucket method. This ensures a deep, yet gentle clean every time! Profession detailing gets into every nook and cranny of your Tesla, ensuring no surface is missed.

Invest in a Ceramic Coating

What is a ceramic coating? A ceramic coating is a clear liquid-polymer which uses nanotechnology to bind to the topcoat of your car. Ceramic coatings help form a smooth protective coat that prevents contaminants from bonding with the paint.

Ceramic coatings also have hydrophobic qualities that aid in preventing watermarks and stains. They protect your Teslas paint from UV damage, oxidation, colour fading, surface scratches, and acid rain while helping to preserve that showroom shine and gloss after a paint correction polish.

Ceramic coatings are not just for the body of the car. They can and should be applied to the wheels and windows, as well. They protect your windshield from annoying water stains that are difficult and time-consuming to get rid of. Ceramic coatings not only protect your car, but they also make cleaning a breeze. Wipe off contaminants, and small debris with ease!

Why risk the dangers of DIY ceramic coatings? At-home ceramic coatings are costly and annoying to fix. Wetwerks Autospa, is your one-stop-shop for all your ceramic and glass coating needs. At Wetwerks Autospa, we use top of the line System X Ceramic Coatings, which are endorsed by Boeing, and backed by warranty.

For Superior Protection: Get Paint Protection Film

For maximum protection, Paint Protection Film (PPF) should be used with ceramic coatings. Paint Protection Film, commonly referred to as “clear bra”, is a Thermoplastic Polyurethane film that protects your Tesla’s exterior from stone chips, scratches, and general wear and tear. Clear bra/PPF has the ability to self-heal, through heat guns or from the sun.

Paint Protection Film can also be used to alter the finish of your Tesla, for a glossy finish, stick to the original, stealth wrap. For something more unique, Matte or Satin PPF Finishes are also available. Did you know PPF can be applied as a full wrap, or to specific panels of your Tesla?

Just make sure you seek professional help when PPFing your Tesla, as an improper wrap is expensive to fix.

At Wetwerks Autospa, we use premium quality Xpel Paint Protection Film, trusted by professionals worldwide, backed by warranty and applied by our trained professionals. We’re here to help ensure your car is protected the right way.
