Getting your car to be an extension of your personality may come off to some as a type of sorcery. It could be of your favourite colour and its interior may be furnished to your liking. Unfortunately, that colour and interior may not be peculiar to you and going an extra mile will not come cheap. But how does your car stand out without breaking the bank and you sure as hell can't drive without your doors locked? The answer lies in vehicle wrapping.
What is a vehicle wrap?
Vehicle wrapping or car wrapping essentially involves the use of large vinyl materials to cover a part or the full length of a car. It could transform a car into a moving billboard if wrap advertising is intended or it could be a window to your personality and make your car stand out.
In the highly humid city of Hamilton, car wrapping is a smart financial move. One of the best car wrapping services in Hamilton, Hamilton Glass Experts offers standard wrapping services. Using only the best wrapping material available, the 3M 1080 film, you get your thoughts and features onto your car. Awesome right?
Benefits of a Car Wrap
This goes without saying that the car wrap is a medium of expression. You can mix colours, create a colour or draw abstract thoughts. It can also double as an unpaid advert space. Your business logo or contact card can be pasted on a door or on any part of your choice. As an added bonus, it has the potential to carry your business to the farthest parts or out of town.
Why should you wrap your vehicle? You should wrap your vehicle because it is cheaper than a paint job. The humid weather of Hamilton makes it imperative to use really expensive paints to get the best results. Weather, on the other hand, has no impact on the application of a vehicle wrap. It dries up faster than a paint job and is sure to leave behind a clean finish. Similarly, vinyl wrap lasts longer and wears off slower than the average paint job.
A vehicle wrap is versatile and options are unlimited. A vinyl wrap lets your imagination run wild, with designs and colours. What's more, it can be changed as much as you desire in the shortest time. Because changing a car paint takes a lot of time, a car wrap appointment can be set up in a short time. Coupled with the above, changing car wraps is relatively easy. You don't have to keep your car parked in a garage for a long time for its makeover.
As a plus, vehicle wrapping protects the original paint job of a car and increases the resale value. Because the manufacturer's original paint remains untouched, you can get more value for your car in an event of a resale or a recall.
The secret behind an amazing car wrap is the use of professionals and a company that knows it's stuff be it advertisement wrapping or just a personal vehicle wrap. Hamilton Glass Experts is all about getting the best results for your car wrapping or advertisement wrapping.

Today we're investigating the best ways to stop your car windows from fogging up and reducing your ability to see the road. We've seen many infomercials and stands at Canadian tire offering steam and fog solutions. As your local auto glass service, we felt it necessary to let you know about a few auto glass hacks for keeping your windshield and windows clear.
This video shows a test
1. Potato (Cut it in two and rub the inside of the raw potato directly onto your vehicles windows.)
2. Shaving Cream (Buff it on and wipe it clear leaving a thin film.)
3. Hand Sanitizer (Apply with paper fowl until you see know streaks.)
4. Baby Shampoo (Apply with cloth)
5. Rain-X Anti Fog (Store bought. Likely something you can find at Canadian Tire.
The two mose effective fog prevention methods were the store bought Rain-X and home solution: Shaving Scream!
Why do my cars windows get foggy in the first place?
The scientific reason for the condensation that forms on your windshield is due to a temperature change. Ever seen a movie where the windows steam up to imply romance? Well, the cold temperature outside and the warmth from body heat inside the vehicle have created a difference in temperature great enough to steam up the windows. This is why your windows will gather some condensation in the winter time. On the rather hand, the cool air is inside your vehicle in the summer. When we hit a high enough outdoor temperature this change will work in the opposite way. Cold air inside and warm air outside. Neat right? Not if your driving dow the Lincoln M. Alexander Pkwy in Hamilton, ON and you lose visibility! Also if visibility is an issue, you may want to consider booking an appointment for windshield tinting service here.
As pointed out on Reddit Hamilton and written about on the Hamilton Spectator website, Tesla recent filmed a commercial on a highway in the Hammer for its Model S vehicle
The commercial, "Revolutionize your Commute", shows the white luxury liftback cruising on Highway 403 in downtown Hamilton between the York Boulevard and Main Street West off-ramps. It passes several local landmarks, including the Hamilton Spectator.
The backdrop on Highway 403 in Hamilton is very nice, which is likely why Tesla decided to film here, along with there being more reasonable traffic than there would have been closer to Toronto.
There is a Tesla charging station in Hamilton at McMaster Innovation park, but the nearest dealership is in Toronto right beside Pearson International Airport (one of three GTA Tesla dealerships), so that is likely where the car came from.
It looks like the commercial may have been filmed very recently as the weather and scenery match what we have currently in Hamilton - there’s no leaves on the trees and also no snow on the ground. Of course, to be fair, it could have also been filmed last fall or a year ago around the same time.
The stretch of highway road is very curvy, allowing the film makers to show off the handling of the vehicle, which is a key theme of the commercial. Specifically, the video advertises that the Tesla S will “revolutionize your commute” because it:
• increases safety & convenience
• navigates the curves of the road
• follows the flow of traffic
• changes lanes with a single tap
• and parks on your command
This all sounds great. The only hurdle we see is the $101,900 - $146,000 Canadian price tag (depending on the battery you choose). That much for a battery, you say? Yes, in case you’ve been living under a rock, Tesla’s are all electric cars that need to be charged.
Fortunately, each new version is providing more KM’s per charge, with the latest Tesla S having a 460 km range. That’s about the distance from Toronto to Ottawa, in case you were wondering. Not quite enough if you’re travelling from the Hammer to Canada’s Capital, but there are charging stations along the way.
So, if you have $100,000+ to “revolutionize your commute”, the Tesla S may be for you. And if you do get a Tesla, you can trust Hamilton Glass Experts to reliably provide window tinting, paint protection, or any of our other professional services to the luxury vehicle.
