I do vinyl decals and my buddy does it for a living so I kind of wonder if it's similar and I can install it my self...

Lastly I have read conflicting statements of the protection and how you can and can not put ceramic pro over it, any truth to this from you experience ?

Thanks...

My cts-v has 3m protection on hood fenders and front bumper/valance with ceramic pro over top of it. Cost 2k in New Jersey. The car is black so I wanted paint chip protection as well. It cleans up just like the rest of the car. No visible lines etc if I didnít tell you it was on it 99% wouldnít know it. My opinion on the cost reflects the finished product. Iíve seen protection wraps that look crappy with visible seems and poor cuts around trim and headlights etc.. Iím not a vinyl guy and I didnít want to waste cash on the material ďtrying it outĒ so I paid to have it done. I probably paid a little on the high side for it but I believe the results justify it.

As far as over or on top. My ceramic pro guy is a licensed authorized distributor/installer. My warranty and annual touch up/maintenance can be done nationwide at any licensed/authorized ceramic pro location. He said itís safe to go over the 3m material so thatís what I did. Iím assuming during the annual visit if a stone has penetrated or made imperfections thatís when he corrects the area and then reapplies the coating as necessary. Fortunately I have not had to deal with this yet so donít take that as a fact. I am only assuming that is the process. Itís a great question, hopefully someone else with 1st hand experience can chime in on that specifically.

Ceramic pro is overpriced.. opti coat pro is a good one along with Cquartz finest.

Main thing is maintenance, everyone that replied in this thread that has a coating does one thing that keeps it nice, they are super careful with how they wash it. That is the MAIN way to keep your truck clean and looking good.

Coatings are great, they last about 2 years tops, anyone who says otherwise is lying to you. As for lifetime warranty, Iím curious as to what they consider warranty when the coating wears out.

For the 3m paint film, it is NOT the same as installing vinyl stickers. Iíd take it to a professional installer. If you have a black truck, take it to the best you can possibly find. Black shows stretch marks in the clear bra. 90% of clear bra installers are NOT good enough to get it perfect in black paint. The hoods on these 2017s are a bit tough to wrap.

I had mine detailed and Opti-coat pro applied. It sheds water way better than wax ever has and makes it really easy to wash all the crap off. I will do it again on every vehicle I can afford to do it on. Using the 2 bucket method with the ONR rinse-less wash and it is pretty easy and takes about the same amount of time as hand washing did before. I paid $2K and even if I get 2-3 years out of it, it is still cheaper than a detail and much less impact on the paint. I've never been a fan of regular car washes, so not using one because of the coating warranty doesn't bother me much.
