    As title says, what kind of prices are you all paying for the CQuartz waxing?

    Thanks

    CQuartz Finest was $800 to do the entire car on mine. I had the wheels and glass done as well, which was a little extra. After getting the car back today, it was worth every penny. The car is flawless. Make sure they do paint correction before…that was included in mine.

    Also, make sure whoever is doing it uses the special lights to see all of the paint flaws. Mine had special lights so he could see every flaw and corrected each one. I looked the entire car over today and it looked like a sheet of glass.

    What do you mean "make sure they do paint correction"?
    What are they correcting, and how are they correcting it before the CQuartz treatment?

    He takes all of the overspray, swirls, fine scratches, etc. out, then applies the CQuartz Finest coating after.

    How long did it take them to treat the whole car?
    And is it best to put the Xpel Clearbra on first and the CQ over top of that?

    $350 prep, $250 (two coats) per bottle of CQuartz == $600 at the very least. I'll pay for two bottles and 4 coats

    So the shop charged you $350 for the labor, and $250 for the CQuartz bottle, which is good for 2 coats?
    What's the advantage of having 4 coats? Does it really mean it's twice as thick, or is it just smoke and mirrors at that point?

    $350 to prep the car for CQuartz. Then the application of CQuartz (2 coats/one bottle's worth) is $250. I would think 4 coats is better than three which is better than two. My car hasn't arrived yet, but this will get done shortly thereafter

    It took 3 days…they put the clear bra on first and CQuartz over that. Everything is protected.

    It's a one man operation. He has a bay for 3 cars and mine was kept inside every night with a Maserati and BMW 7 series. It takes time...had to wash it and strip off all waxes, inspect it under special light and mark all paint defects, then do paint correction. Then, he cuts and installs Suntek material and uses special heat lamps to cure it. Then he has to coat the car 3 times, cost the wheels, coat the glass, and clean interior. You have to wait a little bit before applying the next layer of CQuartz as well. He took his time and made all of the seams almost undetectable as well.
