We protect your Rivian with only the highest quality of protective films: XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS or XPEL STEALTH. These paint protection films have a wide range of features to give your Rivian the ultimate protection.

XPEL Ultimate Plus for Rivians

XPEL ULTIMATE PLUS is a paint protection film formulated from a combination of advanced elastomeric polymers that prevents discoloring, yellowing or hazing. The film has the technology to heal itself from swirl marks and light scratches. This invisible layer of protection safeguards your Rivian from potential damage from roads and debris.

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Rivian Paint Protection Services

How long does paint protection film last on a Tesla?

Once you’ve installed XPEL’s paint protection on your Rivian, you will be protected by a 10-year warranty against yellowing, cracking, peeling, staining, and hazing, covering both film and labor.

Can I remove the paint protection film from my Rivian?

It is possible to remove paint protection at home, but you’ll want to be extremely careful. Normally best practice is to heat the film with a heat fun and gently scrape it off. If you’d prefer that this job be done by a professional bring your Rivian to the nearest Sun Stoppers location and we’ll do the job for you — carefully and safely!

Do you install XPEL products on all Rivian models?

Yes, we service all Rician models with our paint protection services (as well as window tinting and ceramic coating).

Is paint protection on a Rivian worth the cost?

Paint protection film is a worthwhile long term investment in your Rivian. It will keep your vehicle looking better longer, require less exterior maintenance, and allow you to sell for a higher price if you ever wish to do so.

Do I have to wait to wash my Rivian after paint protection film is installed?

Yes! Please wait at least 48 hours before washing your Rivian. Thankfully, this shouldn’t be too difficult because we make sure your vehicle is sparkling clean before installing PPF.

Can I wax over the paint protection film on my Rivian?

Yes, most waxes can be used in tandem with XPEL’s paint protection film. Just make sure the wax doesn’t contain Kerosene or Naptha in over 5% concentration. Also, avoid waxes that come with dyes.

Why did you buy a Rivian? 

Was it the money you save over the long term with an electric vehicle, or the fact that you can have a tough, plus electric vehicle? Maybe you just love the unique modern and sleek look that comes with the Rivian adventure vehicles. 

Whatever the case, you want to protect your investment. 

After all, every vehicle takes a beating just driving around, and off road vehicles are even more at risk for dings, scratches, and dents. 

Thankfully, you can take steps to keep your Rivian looking brand-spanking new. It’s easy when you apply XPEL’s paint protection. 

When you stop by a Sun Stoppers location and have professionals install PPF on your Rivian you’ll be out the door in no time and confidently driving a vehicle that will look good for a long time. It’s as if you’ll always have a “new” Rivian sitting in your garage. 

But is the investment really worth it? Does your vehicle actually receive exterior blemishes that quickly? 

The short answer is yes. It’s more than just fender-benders that make your car look like its been through the mill. 

Stones, sand, tar, and other road debris wreak havoc on your car’s paint. If that’s not enough acid rain, bugs, and bird dropping will finish the job. 

And once your paint is scratched, no amount of waxing or washing can fix the blemish. Your only option is to invest in repainting that section of your Rivian. It doesn’t take long at all to cover the cost you invest in paint protection film. 

At Sun Stoppers, we offer XPEL Ultimate Plus and XPEL Stealth protection films for the R1T and R1S Rivian models. 

And the best part? Protecting your car with paint protection is easy when you choose Sun Stoppers. All you have to do is: 

  1. Schedule an appointment
  2. Bring in your Rivian
  3. The professional and trained Sun Stoppers team applies the film.

During the whole process our courteous and professional staff strives to make sure you are cared for in every possible way. 

And when we’re finished, we’re confident the results will exceed your expectations
