You may want to think about clear bra. Opticoat will not protect against rock chips from track wear and tear

Thanks Greg.



OP, I can do the Opti-Coat Pro for you as I am a licensed authorized installer for the professional version, no consumer version 2.0 here....the real deal with the warranty from Optimum.

I am actually interested as well. Can you PM me your location and pricing. I've already scheduled an appointment with another peronson but if you're closer and can beat their price I'm all ears!

Cheers.

I'm in Antioch. I can't provide pricing without seeing it....as I don't know what condition its in and how much work it will need. I also don't price match/beat either, I provide a high level of service and charge fairly for it.

There is not really a "usual" cost because every car will be different in the level of defects it has. They typically range from $600-$1,000. A car that was never washed by the dealer and brought straight in for coating and THAT is its first wash, is likely to be closer to the 600 range. A car that was washed once or more at the dealer and then not washed properly by the owner can add significant damage to the paint and greatly increase the time required to correct those issues and will be closer to the 1,000 range.....which is why you NEVER let the dealer wash your car, even at delivery.

Have Clear Bra installed on my whiteout, its invisible unless your standing right next to it. She got nicked the first week I had it, the last 2 months not so much as a scratch on her. Got the bumper, strip on the hood and the mirrors done for 500 with labor.

Viable option.
