Are you sick of small chips and blemishes on your front bumper or your hood? How about scratch marks behind your door handle or on your door sills from getting in and out of your vehicle? There is a solution for that and it is paint protection film.
When it comes to protecting your paint and other surfaces of your vehicle, nothing is stronger or protects longer than paint protection film, also referred to as PPF or clear bra. Tabula Rasa Fine Auto Detailing is proud to directly offer paint protection film services to our customers.

A car that has been preserved or even resurrected is one that requires a lot of special attention and care. You cannot use the same methods, techniques or chemicals that you can on modern vehicle’s exterior paint, trim or metal. The interior fabrics and upholstery are much easier to stain with modern harsh chemicals as well. Taking the time and care to properly assess what your classic vehicle needs to get it looking its best while also preserving the original finish is always our goal when a classic car is brought in for detail service. Here are some of the key areas that you need to be more careful when cleaning
Not All PPF Installations Are the Same
Through detailing, we have seen many poor installations of PPF over the years. Sometimes the film would be lifting or peeling, there may have been discoloration in the film, marring or bubbling in the film, and most commonly, you could see a distinct line where the paint protection film started or ended. This was why it took us years to find a PPF installer to partner with that held the same standards we did with detailing. Quite often, PPF installers will use the same brand of film, but the end product can be drastically different. James Bernhardt, owner & operator at ProFilm, is a master at his trade. He is one of the few PPF installers that can protect nearly any surface with a custom sheet of PPF and nearly make it look invisible. The comparison below is just a quick example of what two mirrors look like.
The Best Paint Protection in Northern Virginia
We are confident that pairing the detailing services of Tabula Rasa with the expert PPF installation of ProFilm that your vehicle will have the best protection, look, and customer service that money can buy. In fact, we stand behind our paint protection film installation by offering a lifetime warranty against any lifting or peeling. You read that correctly. If your PPF begins to lift or peel, we will reapply PPF in that area at no cost. In addition to a lifetime warranty on the installation, the actual film comes with a 10-year warranty against factory defects, which include yellowing or discoloration.
