How to protect your collector car with 3M


How to protect your collector car with 3M


Everybody loves classic cars. Their timeless beauty, elegance and design are unmatched in today’s automobile industry. Whether you frequently drive your collector car or leave it in your garage, protecting your investment is important and easy to do.

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) announced the next Collector Car Appreciation Day will be celebrated July 12, 2019. Collector Car Appreciation Day raises awareness of the vital role automotive restoration and collection plays in American society. Here at Accent Distributing, we want you to drive worry-free knowing that your classic car will be secure for years to come.

(Please note that all wrap films should be applied to a “like new” vehicle finish for the best results. If you’ve recently restored or refinished your classic car, then these options are the best for you.)

Add a Pop of Color

While classic never goes out of style, it can be fun to modernize your collector car with 3M Wrap Film Series 1080. With more than 100 colors to choose from, Wrap Film Series 1080 promises head-turning looks while protecting your car from fading, scratches and chips. The film is placed over top of your paint, which further protects the value.

As the inventor of Post It™ Notes, 3M is the world’s expert in adhesive technology. 3M™ Wrap Film Series 1080 can easily be removed and replaced for frequent changes in looks as well as consistent protection.

Protect Your Paint

Don’t want to change the color of your collector car? You can still protect it from damage with 3M™ Paint Protection Films. With nearly invisible protection, Scotchgard™ Paint Protection Films Pro Series provides absorption of stone impacts while resisting against scratching, chipping, staining and yellowing.

Paint Protection Films are added to the most vulnerable areas of a vehicle, including the hood and fenders, key-hole areas, mirrors and more.

3M™ Paint Protection Film is guaranteed for 10 years of high-quality performance. Backed by research, these films are the best way to preserve your car without changing the classic design features or original color.

Keep it Cool

Preserving the interior of a collector car is just as important as protecting the exterior. Luckily, 3M™ Automotive Window Film Crystalline Series rejects up to 60% of solar energy and up to 97% of heat-producing infrared rays. This means your car’s fabric and leather are protected against fading and deterioration while your skin is shielded from the harmful ultraviolet light that causes sunburn and other skin conditions.

The Crystalline Series is designed to enhance your view by allowing visible light into your vehicle while keeping the heat out, allowing you to see clearly through your windows while maintaining your vehicle’s original appearance.

While 3M™ Automotive Window Films provide numerous benefits, including protecting both the interior and exterior of your car, it may not be the right solution for every collector car. Keep in mind that collector car contests may deduct points for added films.
