To Remove Parts or Not?

by

Being “a certain way” about how services are performed on your car can mean completely opposite things to different people. For instance, if you’re having a full-body PPF wrap or an extensive paint correction/detail service, you may insist on *nothing* being removed from the car. In my experience, most who feel this way have it rooted in a reasonable fear of something being damaged during the process or it not ideally fitting back together…thus, they want 100% untouched as it was when they took delivery. And that’s a fair way to view things.

But for others, they may want some measure of items removed prior to the service being performed to limit exposed edges or to address paint concerns that are otherwise inoperable with parts blocking full access. Removal may be quite complex or it may be extremely simple (such as removal of badges or emblems).

In the following video, I explain some of the nuances and benefits of removing at least the simple to remove parts of a GT3RS prior to a full-body PPF wrap. It’s worthwhile to consider why, in some cases, the best choice really is to properly disassemble easily to remove parts.

How do you feel about a qualified technician removing parts to gain access to areas? Remove “all the parts!” (insert meme here lol), easy-peasy stuff can come off or leave everything exactly where it is when brand new?
