Default Portland area tint/clear bra/overlay shop recommendation

There is a vendor in Everett listed in the sticky info thread, but I didn't see anything for the Portland area. Wanted to start asking around for someplace to take my car when it arrives ...

Thanks all

Ive used Alexia's Auto Tint in Beaverton twice and about to get my wife's Outback done. I've had a good experience each time, quality work in my opinion.

I know it's a bit of a drive for you but Guardline in Puyallup did a full vinyl wrap on my car including door jambs and it came out excellent. I know there are also a couple of guys from down there that have come up for wraps and even some dealers. They've done it all and quality and service is top notch. They do vinyl, clear bra, overlays. Everything you are looking for. Here's a few pics of their work mine is the LGT :-)

LOVE YOUR LGT!

I was drooling over that and my favorite RUMBLE WAGON! Katie was telling me she has her whole front end in clear bra by Guardline

Guardline is your best bet man, they did my car. Most professional and definitely the best end result in the NW. Do yourself a favor and check them out!!

Sounds like a great shop and those pics are nice.

I want to have it done before I have a chance to scratch things up. I'm not sure how I feel about doing that drive for the break in ...

I've had a few cars tinted at Highline Customs in beaverton. They do great work at great rates. They've also done clearbra's on a few of my parents cars. Great work.

I used "Nick the Tint Guy" in Puyallup for my tint and clear bra. Both turned out great.

What did you guys pay for the services?

I went by kingpin and was honestly shocked by the prices of tint and full vinyl wraps.

My last tint was in the phoenix area, where you can get it done for about $100.

this isnt Phoenix. PDX it is a luxury for tint, not a requirment.

Kingpin just did my 3m clear bra paint protection on my bumper. looks like nothing is there. its flawless.

Luxury or not, the price differential would pay for the gas to drive down to LA to get it done.

I've used Road Runner Protective Films before. Very happy with them. Highly recommended.
