    I'm planning on getting it put on the same time I get the windows tinted. I'm planning in the front end, mirrors and lower quarter panels behind the rear wheels. A friend has it on his car and you can't even tell it is there.

    I will see a friend who does window tinting and extras for new car dealers around town and get his take on it.
    If I get any worthy info I will pass it on to you

    I did this on my 08 Challenger 3 days after delivery. The front end, lights, fogs, behind front and rear wheels, door edge trim and wheel well trim all still look brand new. I will do my Hellcat the same way. Appointment already scheduled. :)

    I just got mine back today from getting this all done. Xpel on the areas above and Ceramic Pro on the rest of the body. The Xpel is still setting a few small bubbles here and there but it is really clear and shines like no tomorrow. It cost me $4,500. I am happy with it.

    Xpel on mine is the 8mil, the thick stuff, not the ultra-thin layer version of 3mil.

    There is no template for the Hellcat yet but below is for the '14 Challenger RT and this doesn't include labor either. Plus there are the two main types of Ultimate and Xtreme.

    I'm planning on getting Xpel but not if it is going to cost $4,500! My buddy had his 2014 911S done a few months ago and I thought he told me it was like $600? I reached out to a top-notch Xpel distributor close to me this afternoon. He said the Hellcat template isn't out yet but thinks it will be only a few more weeks at the most. He emailed the head of design for Xpel to see if he can get an ETA. They have done some pretty sweet rides so I'd trust them with my Hellcat! Flickr Atlanta Protective Films Photostream

    I'll share with the board the price he quotes me once the kit is available.
