    Finally decided to pull the trigger on Ceramic Pro at a local shop. I drop her off tomorrow to get that installed and X-pel on the satin black hood. More details to follow tomorrow.

    Very nice! I have the CQuartz Finest on mine...very similar products. You will be very happy. I chose the Suntek over the Xpel for a few reasons....Suntek was less visible, and it had less orange peel. You might want to explore that option over the Xpel. Good luck and enjoy!

    Yes I did the Ceramic Pro on mine. The shop did 4 coats on the paint, 1 on the glass and 1 on the plastic then they use the paint booth they have and bake the car for 2 hours. Then they applied 1 more coat to the painted areas. Each year they reapply NC. It really looks amazing...

    B5Cat, how did you go about finding a qualified applicator? I don't see any listing on the Ceramic Pro site.

    My friend owns the body shop and the detail shop that installs the ceramic pro. He could not say enough good things about it, so I did it. Do they have a 800#. If not maybe a member on the forum knows of a installer in your area. I had to leave my car for 2 days for them 2 do it. It was well worth it.

    I just dropped her off after discussing some details before I pulled the trigger. So I will be getting Xpel stealth on the satin hood. Xpel on the front bumper and rear bumper. Ceramic pro will go on the entire vehicle to include the wheels, wheel barrels and brake calipers.

    Curious to see the final product. I'll post pics.

    So, what's the prep process? Do you fully clean and detail your car before taking it in? Let them handle it at the shop? They're pulling wheels and cleaning calipers to apply?

    They are doing a full restoration process before applying any of the xpel and or ceramic pro. They are in fact taking off the wheels and cleaning calipers to apply the coating as well.

    So I can't say anything negative about my experience over at 5 point protection. Adam, Leo, and the rest of the staff are amazing. Truly top notch.

    I've dealt with them the past 2 years as they washed my Z06 that I previously owned and since I bought my Hellcat they have literally been the only ppl to wash it. In the last 2 years business has picked up pretty well for them. They now carry a product called Ceramic Pro which took me awhile to say Yes, to having it installed. But I wanted to protect the kitty so I pulled the trigger.

    Amazing. When I picked it up, they had ask me if I wanted my car to be part of a photoshoot for advertisement. Figured why not.

    I got xpel on the hood and bumpers and ceramic pro installed throughout. Here are some pics the photographer took. There was a PCP Hellcat there as well getting the same treatment. We were the only Hellcats they had done.
