    Yeah, knowing how Arkansas is, I had the Expel-Ultimate put on 2 days after I picked up my new Challenger. Any yellow (and this is my 4th Challenger in yellow) gets marked up and is susceptible to road rash more than most paints! I had them put the clear material over the whole front fascia, the quarter panels, door handles and the mirrors. I wish now I did the rear bumper too. You can't even tell it's on there unless you get up on it and really look. For $900, it was very much worth it.

    I really like the color! I got the Octane Red; but this color is awesome also. I'm still waiting to see a Green Go one in person.

    I had the Ming Mirror Finish put on my Cat a week after getting it for $250. Only applied in three locations in the U.S. (San Antonio, Kansas City, MO, and Rochester, MN.) IMG_0094.JPG and keeps the car clean and protected from dirt, road grime such as tar and never requires any wax. I have had it done on all my vehicles (12 in all) over the past 13 years.

    That looks awesome!!! I have a question, does the Ming Mirror Finish protect the car from road debris? We get a lot of flying rocks and bugs and what not on the road ways here in Arkansas, they should rename this place Hazard!! The Expel is very strong stuff, the guy putting it on my car demonstrated a piece that he scraped with a wire brush, then used heat to watch it mend itself!!

    The Ming is n
    The Ming Mirror Finish is not a material like the Expel is; but is a process using chemicals and a wet buffer to melt and reseal the clear coat so that there are no pores in the paint. This process does help debris such as rocks and bugs to glide over the paint if it hits it, but not as strong as the Expel I'm certain. The main benefit of the Ming is that it protects against UV fading and never requires any wax to retain the shine even after 13 years and 150K miles later, my vehicles still look like new. Detroit area also has the debris issue (along with huge potholes), so I try to limit my highway driving with my collector cars.

    Yeah that was too much! Dodge has misplayed so many things.They remind me of a group of kids on the first Job. But they eventually get it done. Some give up and walk away though!

    Thanks Buddy. You Canadians make a nice car! So far it seems perfect, I would like to know what the official problem with the Yellow paint was that caused the delay. It looks smooth and great!
