Captain Fatty’s Tinting and Graphics is a family owned and operated Wilmington business that has been serving the area with the highest quality professional window tinting, vehicle graphic installation and other great vehicle upgrades since their opening in 2009. 
Owner Steve Crowe is one of the area’s top tint installation experts.  Wilmington vehicles have been lining up at his shop for years to get the best quality films applied to the most meticulous standards in the business.  Automotive window tinting has a variety of functional benefits outside of adding a stylish and sleek look to your vehicle. 
Capt. Fatty’s has quite a selection of options when it comes to window tinting and can always set you up with the perfect tint for your situation.  If you tend to leave your car or truck sitting in the sun all day you should consider tinting your windows to prevent UV damage to your upholstery. 
It helps keep harmful UV rays off your skin while you ride down the road as well as helping to keep the interior cool so your air conditioner won’t need to struggle to keep up!  Capt. Fatty’s uses all non metalized tint films which won’t interfere with the signal from any of your electronic devices. Captain Fatty’s knows that your vehicle is a huge investment which is why they continually try to bring you the best ways to extend the life of your vehicle.  Their newest service offered is the Plasti Dip treatment that strengthens and extends the life of the vehicle surfaces which take the most abuse. This new technology is a rubber coating that can be applied to any vehicle surface including rims, grills, truck beds and even an entire car to give it a fresh new look or feel. It protects against harmful everyday road debris such as rocks, sand, salt, and ice.
It leaves a deep matte finish wherever applied but can also be “glossified” on certain areas for the look you want.
Captain Fatty’s is the place to go when you want professionally installed graphics or wraps on your vehicle.  Whether you are trying to turn you vehicle into a moving billboard for your business, trying to add a unique design that sets you apart from the others on the road or simply want to add a protective layer that will extend the life of your vehicles paint job Captain Fatty’s has you covered.  Captain Fatty’s uses 3M Scotchprint high performance vinyl for their wraps which lasts longer protects better and can even be removed later without any damage to the vehicles original paint job. 
Getting your vehicle wrapped is an investment in the future of your investment as the added protection for the original paint will help the vehicle retain value.  Capt. Fatty’s can entirely cover your vehicle with any of a massive selection of colors in solid, metallic, brushed and matte finishes for the perfect look.  You can make it one color or multicolor.  It’s perfect for someone who may have gotten the interior in a color they liked but they don’t like the exterior.  Wrap your vehicle today and match all of your vehicles colors perfectly. 
When your headlights are getting dull due to a hazy buildup, save yourself the trouble and expense of buying new ones as Captain Fatty’s can clear up the fog.  Unlike the do-it-yourself kits that turnout to be more than a hassle than they are worth, Captain Fatty’s uses a proven effective 6 stage professional 3M process to restore your headlights to their original luster with their comprehensive headlight restoration.  You will be amazed at the results as your vehicle once again illuminates the road ahead, better alerting you of dangerous hazards that may be in the road.  It also helps your car look newer and cleaner.  Captain Fatty’s can also install a variety of specialized headlights like HID’s and projectors.  When you want to upgrade to a brighter light that provides even more visibility at night Captain Fatty’s has you covered.  “Captain Fatty's was founded by Steve and Melissa Crowe after discovering the usefulness of automotive window film.  We quickly moved to residential tinting after discovering the practicality and savings window film can offer.  In fact, after tinting the windows in our own (older) home, we reaped the benefits of a 25% reduction in our heating and cooling costs!  This is not to say that every home will see that kind of savings but we would not sell the product if we did not believe in it and use it ourselves.  After a customer approached us to do vinyl graphics, we decided that graphics would be a great avenue to expand into next.  Graphics are such a fun way to personalize any vehicle.  Vehicle lettering and magnetic signs are a great, economical way to advertise your business.  Since then, we have added custom apparel and automotive accessories to our product line and we intend to continue expanding to meet the growing needs of our customers. 
We love the fact that we can offer a one-stop shopping experience for the new business in town from vehicle lettering and tinting to office tinting, window lettering, shirts, signs, and banners.  We offer free estimates and personal service so stop by today!”
