    AMI Ventureshield Install on KTM X-Bow

    Here are some pics of AMI's Ventureshield install on my X-Bow.

    I decided to get this done as there is so much vulnerable bare carbon on the car. From past experience, it goes cloudly when chipped and is virtually impossible to restore. In fact the white UK press car I drove back in September was already looking "used" after only 2,000 miles. 

    When I took the car in, I asked for film to be applied "everywhere that might get stone chipped". The floating panels and complex surfaces make the X-Bow a very challenging car to film. It ended up taking 40+ hours and a heck of a lot of film to produce the result you can see below. Here's what's covered: 

    Floating are rear floating planels (the film is wrapped over the edges all round)
    Front splitter
    Headlights
    Indicators
    Crashbox
    Monocoque
    Main underbody (the part you step on to climb in)
    Airbox (leading edge)
    Lower radiator grill 
    Sidepod (leading edge)
    Rear spoiler
    Interior & bulkhead (underneath headrest and harnesses)

    Front & rear wheel covers (one piece of film)

    The latest Ventureshield is very good aesthetically with no orange peel effect. I'm absolutely delighted with the end result. Highly recommended. If you're in the UK and you want the very best, talk to Nick at AMI on 07836 285 538.

    Nice, thanks for sharing Scott!

    Only true car enthusiasts would have such an exposed car here in the UK

    Regarding the Ventureshield - do AMI have a website?  I did a quick google scan and didnt spot them.  And where are they based?

    I would have liked to have my car Ventureshield'ed when new but the reseller messed me about so much that I didn't bother in the end.  Now I have quite a few chips and I guess it's too late to put bra on.  So I will just respray when it's gets too noticeable.

    Still interested in a price though after I respray....

    Apparently there is a hardtop version of the X-Bow in the works.

    AMI are based in Pitstone near Tring. Nick did my 997RS as well. Also excellent work.

    Take your car down to him for a look. He can paint it and then apply the film to keep it perfect.

    Thanks Blueflame. Yep I love it. There is serious potential in the chassis. The factory setup is a little soft for hardcore track work...a bit like GT Porsche's these days. Smiley

    With sticky rubber, another 100bhp, fruitier exhaust and the suspension/ride height setup to maximise aero it'll be a lot of fun.
