Unfortunately, we are unable to do that for most people at this time. Local customers whom we have a relationship with can pay by check after they receive their items on a Net15 basis, but we are unable to extend this to a wider customer base.
No. Your email, phone, address and everything else are safe with us. We won't give anything to anyone. We currently do not send promotional emails but we plan to add an "opt in" to receive emails about new products soon.
Most collision centers keep track of vehicles by using a Repair Order number and this allows you to input the RO number of the vehicle that you're ordering the part for. We will label that item with the RO number you enter so you'll know what vehicle it goes to when you receive it.
Avery, Oracal and 3M are the three best brands and these are what we primarily use, but we may use others in the future in order to expand our color options. Rest assured that we will never use cheap or no-name brand vinyls.
We use different brands in order to match specific colors that are common on vehicles. For example, 3M pinstripes are the most widely used pinstripes, and we want to match the most common colors. Ironically, 3M no longer sells large vinyl rolls in the same colors as their pinstripes so we have to look to different brands for matching colors. For example, the 3M pinstripe Light Charcoal (50) is commonly used on vehicles, but the only vinyl we can find to match that is Oracal brand vinyl.
Maybe. We are open to making things in custom colors. The problem is matching the color you need and sourcing the vinyl. We do this for local customers when we can look at the car and match the color ourselves, and we are usually able to get the correct vinyl and have the stripes made within a couple of days, but none of this is guaranteed.
If we can't communicate the exact color that is needed, then it will probably be impossible. You may simply need a light blue, but we have access to 30 shades of light blue so, unless we are able to agree on a color, there's a 29 out of 30 chance that what we send won't match what you need, and we are hesitant to do that. We don't want to put you in the position of giving something to a customer that doesn't look right and we don't want to give you, our customer, something that doesn't work either.
We use the best and most durable vinyl, but it varies between brands, types and colors of vinyl. The three manufacturers we use list an expected lifespan of around 7-10 years for solid colors. Metallic vinyls are never rated to last as long solid colors and have an expected lifespan or around 5-8 years.
Some of the stone guards in our photos certainly look bad, but the reason is simple. Depending on the color of the vehicle and lighting conditions, new stone guards are often practically invisible and it turns out to be really hard to take a photos of invisible stuff! So we take photos of the stone guards already on vehicles at repair shops. The dirt and crud collected around the edges makes them more visible in photos. The dirtier cars and more worn out stone guards usually show better, so that's what ends up in some of our photos.
The photos are for reference purposes only to help you ensure you're getting the part you need. Rest assured that when you get a stone guard from us, it will be brand new. We actually make them on demand after you order them. Once installed on a clean car, they will be virtually invisible just like you'd expect.
