Here’s Why And How You Protect The Paint On A Supercar

Popular YouTube auto journalist and vlogger Tim Burton, better known as Shmee150, is one of the most popular names in the business. If you’re unfamiliar with his work, he travels all over the world car spotting and showing off some of the most exclusive cars money can buy. He also owns 3 of the most sought after cars enthusiasts love in a McLaren 675LT, Porsche Cayman GT4, and Ferrari FF.

Well, one of his most recent videos made me think he lost his damn mind when I read “KEYING My Ferrari” as the title. Upon reading that I instantly cringed and reluctantly clicked to watch as I do enjoy his videos. I was hoping he was kidding, but he was not. But there was a twist. He was at Topaz Detailing where he’s has most of his cars’ paint protected with a protection film that supposedly will protect against the most harsh scratches that a potential “key-er” might make.

Check out Shmee actually taking keys and a screwdriver (!!!) to his $200,000+ Ferrari. This is pretty impressive.

This pretty much makes the case for doing this to each and every car ever made. I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing it to my personal car as soon as I humanly can. What incredible technology.
