Derek is the installer/owner; none else if you decide to go with this company. He is the only certified dealer/installer with XPEL here in atlanta. Very clean and professional looking shop. The work was performed in climate control garage to prevent any dust/debris. The waiting room was gorgeous! home theater facility with projector, surround sound system, direct TV and comfortable seating. Took him 4 hours straight to get the job done on my brand new forester 2014. Derek definitely an artist. He is extremely meticulous on his job. He installed Xpel Ultimate with 10 years warranty; the best clear bra product on the market today. The kit was XPEL's custom pre-cut for my car. Derek wrapped around the edges too and he gave me bonus door edge guards. the kit comes with full front bumper, partial fender & hood (bikini cut), front headlight, full mirrors, and door cups. He told me that he also performed clear bra installation for Ferrari dealership. Can't go wrong with this guy. Highly recommended!

Derek put a clear bra on my 2012 black Mustang GT in October 2011. I had a minor accident where I rolled into a horizontal wire cable in a parking garage. Cable rolled up onto the hood leaving a huge scratch. Derek removed the clear bra. To my surprise and delight, the clear bra had completely protected the hood; no damage what-so-ever!

Having experience as a professional auto detailer, I tend to be meticulous in maintaining the appearance of my personal vehicles. Whenever I purchase a new car, one of the first steps I take to protect and prolong its showroom appearance is to have the front end "clear bra" protective film installed. In the past, I have had several done by 3M and Venture Shield, but never was as satisfied as I am with my last two installations done with the Expel product done by Derek Johnson. The Expel is head and shoulders above the others I've used previously. The competency and skill of the installer is even more important than the nature of the product, and I must sincerely say that Derek is absolutely the best installer I have ever used. His dedication to perfection is second to none - on his most recent job for me, he drew my attention to a miniscule blemish in the hood pre-cut section after he installed it, and then replaced it without hesitation so that the appearance was flawless. Derek has the old school work ethic of dedication to perfection and customer satisfaction, and in addition uses a superior product. With that combination, IMHO he is no doubt the best choice in the Atlanta area for a clear bra installation.

I Sent Atlanta Protective films a New Highlander last year (2011) and the product is worth the added benefits his pre cut kits provide. Had my moms new Lexus done last week and very satisfied with his attention to detail and professionalism. Will be a return customer for life i'm sold . Erik M

I am a perfectionist when it comes to my vehicles and I was extremely impressed with the XPEL ultimate application to my classic car. The majority was custom cut for the vehicle. It looks beautiful and Derek was very professional and experienced. I can't say enough. I will be sending everyone I know to him. The waiting area was also very nice with projection tv.

I have had the 3M film installed on two other vehicles but the XPEL that Derek installed on my 2010 Accord is by far the best. Do not let a pre cut kit deter you or think that you are not getting adequate coverage. The XPEL kit results in a better fit & finish with just as much coverage as cutting it on. The install took place at All Pro Window Tinting in Canton. Their lobby is sweet with HDTV! Thanks Derek!

Atlanta Protective Films first sold me on the "clear bra" product back in 2006. Since having the product put on one car, I now swear by it and have had APF install it on all of my cars. I have since had installs on five cars and all have been done with incredible precisions. They are truly perfectionists. When things have come up (wife's car got hit and the bra scratched) they have always been quick to respond and fix the situation. I have seen other local installers' work and I can, without a doubt, say that Atlanta Protective Films is the best around.
