Make sure he does. CP lifetime warranty states the vehicle needs an annual inspection for them to continue to warranty, nowhere does it state theyíll re coat it yearly if for life. The cost that an installer pays for that stuff is high, I donít see how they canít keep afloat re coating every year. Their lifetime warranty is also full of loopholes.


I am by no means bagging on them, Iíve just seen so many Lifetime warranty stuff not live up to expectations.

Agree completely. My guy doesnít say he reapplies a coat. He says he touches it up if he thinks itís necessary. If your getting a annual recoat thatís a smoking deal!!
The shop I use does the mandatory annual inspection to keep the warranty valid. On his dime he does a detail to keep the customers happy. It worked on me, I decided to go lifetime because a annual $250 or more detail at no cost was a no brainer.

Can any of these coatings be applied to an older truck? Seems like very day I get less and less time to keep up with mine and a good buff and coating on it sure would be nice.

A ceramic Dealer will NOT apply without Paint correction First.

That would be one of the perks is getting it polished out so well first. I have my own stuff but by myself it takes a few days to polish everything myself and I would bet they could do a little better job than I do.

Just a local place was doing stuff on only newer cars, I had my wife's car done there right after we got it because it was cheap. Like only $150 with a 5 year warranty. It is a dupont ceramic coating is what they told me. But, they wouldn't do a vehicle more than 2 years old.

Heís a great buddy of mine, so I shouldnít have any issues. Plus Iím paying him to wash it every month lol. My guess is people who do this in general donít keep the cars very long. Or if they do they take exceptional care of them.

Hyper fast cars in huntersville area. Exit 28 off of 77. Ask for Chris. He did a gold package on my raptor and it is everything everyone has stated. Not scratch proof by any means but makes clean up way easier. I'm having him do my wife to be's srt 8 jeep now.

Also, the tint shop in Denver does it. Not sure if they are ceramic pro certified though. I contacted ceramic pro and they got me hooked up with Chris.
