This all looks astounding, I doubt the car looked this good at the factory.

I've seen you mention the ceramic coating a couple of times now, is there a particular reason you're favouring that over paint protection film?

PPF is for protecting the paint from rock chips and scratches. Ceramic coating is effectively a longer lasting wax/polish that won't prevent rock chips or scratches.

If you want your already-healthy paint to look amazing for a car show, PPF is going the wrong direction. Go with a high end wax or ceramic coating.

Any large, high-res pics? It's hard to enjoy the eye candy when you can barely see it!
