St. Louis 3M Clear Bra Installer

In case anyone is looking for a great installer in St Louis. Mark has done 2 cars for me over the last 2 years and will do my new AW 1M. He also does alot of exotic cars in the local area, as well as, installs for most of the luxury dealers in STL. His quality is second to none and he's a fantastic guy to deal with.

He's even offered to give me some film to cover my front end for the PCD drive home. Give him a ring and tell him Mike Williams sent you.

I see from the website that they also do tinting. Do you have any experience with them tinting your vehicles? I'm also getting an AW 1M and am looking for a quality tinter in the St. Louis area.

Sorry, I'm not sure about the tinting. I haven't seen him do any, so I think he brings in another installer for this. He has a ton of pride in his work and I don't think he would associated himself with any mediocre tint installers. I would give him a call. He's a helluva nice guy and very honest.

What dealer did you find your allocation at?

Mike,

When are you doing your PCD? I'm headed to Greenville for mine on 9/7, and was thinking of having a clear bra installed by a recommended installer in NC the next morning. I'd rather have it done close to home, so I might have to talk to Mark and see what he has to say about getting home without any permanent damage...

BTW- I live outside of Belleville...so there will be a BSM and and AW 1M on the streets on this side of the river.

Thanks, I'll give him a call once my car is delivered. Should be just a few more weeks.

I got my allocation from Plaza.

Oh man, I'm excited for you!! Yeah, talk to Mark. He mentioned he would give me some extra film to put on for the drive home from PCD. I may end up going with trakktape since it may be easier to apply. I'm hoping my 11/28 PCD date will be accepted this week. I live in OFallon, several miles north of the motomart off exit 19. I'm deployed to Tampa-stan right now for another 3 months.

What color? I wish mine was local, but I was a little late in my search. I would call him 2 weeks out if you can, just to make sure. I spoke to him the other day to confirm he has the templates to cut the film, although, he hasn't seen a 1M yet. He does have them for the front and custom cuts the other areas. I plan on getting the front end covered, plus mirrors, headlights, leading edge of the roof, rear bumper, side rockers, and the front of the rear wheel arch.

Tell him Mike Williams sent you!

I've gone for a fully loaded one in the same color you went for, AW.

I can't wait for it to be here. The wait is getting harder and harder the closer it gets to delivery.

He did my old man's C6 vette back in 2008, installation was perfect and the film still looks amazing!

Just made an appointment with Mark to have my 1M tinted this Friday. I'll let you guys how it looks and throw up some pictures this weekend when I get the opportunity.

I've heard that Mark does a fantastic job with tint... a bit on the pricey side, but generally you get what you pay for.

Mark tinted my BSM 1M last week and did a great job. Same with the clear bra. You won't be disappointed.
