    This Challenger SRT Hellcat originally came in for just a clear bra installation. However, once it arrived, it was quite obvious it needed a lot of work to make it look like a brand new car should. There were long scratches down almost the entire length of the front fenders and the entire car had some sort of overspray on it, causing the paint finish to look extremely dull. After many hours of polishing, we were able to make this Plum Crazy Hellcat look better than it rolled off the assembly line! We also protected the entire front end with XPEL Ultimate clear film and coated the entire car with none other than our most exclusive ceramic paint coating, Cquartz Finest!

    Pre-Inspection & Paint Correction

    One of the biggest issues with the car was the amount of overspray on the paint. This was causing the car to have a very dull paint finish.

    Now completely removed after Paint Correction. The metallic flake is now popping and the paint look crystal clear!

    This particular car has the factory matte black hood option, so we covered it with Xpel Stealth to retain the matte finish and protect it at the same time. All edges are wrapped for the best appearance.

    I have the same car and live in Sarasota. Did the Stealth on the satin hood change the appearance?

    Actually, I have found that it does not change the appearance really at all. I was quite impressed! Let us know if we can help you with protecting your Hellcat, we have many clients from the Sarasota area! Thanks!

    I wash and wax mine the old fashion way and she is as pretty as any "Cquartz" you ever saw.. I'll keep the $2-3 k and mod her instead.. nobody's ever gonna give "Cquartz" any value when you sell it.. JMHO.. o_O

    If you prefer to spend your money on "go" rather than "show," that's certainly your prerogative; the sweat equity of traditional washing and waxing is an opportunity cost unless you are someone who enjoys spending the time doing the work yourself.

    As for nobody giving CQuartz coatings a value, the precedent on that has already been set by insurance companies; I have personally had two occasions I've been aware of where an insurance provider paid out the value of CQuartz to a client after an accident -- once when the car was a total loss, and once where they paid to have panels re-coated after a collision repair.
