    Is that supposed to be like the "glass coat" stuff you can buy? I think I've seen a few different names for it in the past. I think opti-coat or something is the one that stands out.

    Ceramic coating is very beneficial. It actually protects the paint. I had it done to Beastie about 3 months ago worth every single penny. Washing is a breeze now. No waxing needed but get a foam gun for washing. After getting this done nothing will stick to your car, no bugs etc.

    $2000 in addition to that I had clear bra done as well as powder coating on center caps and xbrace. Worth every penny.

    Not too shabby. You gotta protect that last year production beauty you got there.

    I put a paint coating on my car and it ran around $60. Hard to beat for the money. The most important part is paint prep. I spent about 5 days polishing before I applied the coating.

    GET IT DONE TO YOUR RIDE!!! I do all my cars. But you have to do paint correction before applying.The shine is unreal and the paint protection is amazing. Still wax your car it will make it look even better. My guy here in Cali does it for $475 and that includes paint correction. Sorry Broomrider it sounds like your guy took you for a ride. Ceramic coating should never cost that much. There are other coatings that people charge more for but its not worth the extra money. If anyone here is SoCal wants it done I can give you my guys number. He is right around the corner from Dan C at SPT and Dan has seen my car after it was done.

    Sorry Broomrider I just realized your price included clear bra and powder coating. Not a bad price then

    I've had five vehicles done in the past two years. The most noticeable difference is in my 2015 RAM and 2014 TA. The Viper stays cleaner and is a lot easier to wash.
    2014 Viper TA Orange 6/93
    2013 Mercedes SL550
    2015 Dodge RAM Sport
