I was advised to NOT use any spray wax or instant detailer type products. I have yet to have any swirls with Ceramic Pro after ~2 years. Granted it may be due to zero winter weather exposure since I live in south FL.

You tell me !!! I think it is easy to wash the car if you are in a rush ... LOL ... I don't see how I would pay $2k for details work in my SF bay area. Car Wrap is my top choice ...

No first hand experience, but from everything I've read there is no comparison, the wrap is going to offer more protection.

the ceramic coating is going to transfer the energy of a rock into the paint -> chip
the film will absorb the energy -> no chip

Serious?
Dont I have to have lots of experience to make this done well?
Just intimidated I guess.

I do have a DA polisher from Harbor Freight (it was like 70 bucks). Have couple sets of 6" pads (white, black yellow, orange, blue, green).
Also have Chemical Guys V36 polish and V38 finish, and the VSS two in one finish.
Have one backing pad that came with the polisher.

I sure could love to save a thousand bucks on this. What do you think? I would love to talk to you maybe on cell to get some courage and ask a million questions.
Let me know if you are ok with that. You can pm me with some details for contact if you are ok with that.

Ciaka, I believe you can do it and post of DIY. You have fixed the front and rear suspension at ease. That required a lot skills and knowledge. clean and wax are part of manual labor and patience. Perhaps, you may need an alarm for every few minutes when you do a square section. LOL ...
$2.2K for ceramic here in the bay area. You know you lived here before ... I have to figure it out to DIY. LOL ...

Alex,

That's awesome for your Great work. I need to save few $K here for this job, it is so expensive in my bay area SF. I can re-pain the front every few years for the same amount $ for ceramic, it does not make any sense to me. Wrapper may be my best option. I would love to DIY and save some $. send you a bottle of wine for appreciation, buddy. LOL ...
