REAL paint protection...


Hi everyone. In case there's anyone out there that still doesn't realise, dealer paint protection is nothing more than a RIP OFF and any $300 professional detail finished off with a paint sealer will be a far better job. $1,500 to $2,000 for "paint protection"? LOL!!! I'd love to own a car dealership and be charging that much for it.

If you want REAL paint protection, there is only one product in the world right now that does it and it has to be professionally applied. It's called Ceramic Pro 9H. It is a nano bonded clear ceramic coating that's up to 30 microns thick. It protects from scratches and damage from things such as bird droppings. It makes washing the car SIMPLE (a quick rinse with the karcher is often enough) and there is no need for waxing, ever! It can be applied to rims too and brake dust just falls off with water (or a very light wash).

I know the detailer in Sydney that does it and he has worked on my cars before. He also works on millions of dollars worth of all sorts of exotic cars.

I haven't met the guy in Melbourne yet, but will be when I get my exy done in the very near future.

If anyone wants the details of either, PM me.

I am not affiliated in ANY way with ANY of the companies, Nanoshine or the detailers, but I am seriously enthusiastic about the benefits and value for money of this protection that really does leave everything else for dead!

Re: REAL paint protection...


Personally, I prefer "dirt".

I am constantly complimented on the deep red lustre my 25 year old Subaru still retains (after a bit of rain).

It has always been protected from U/V rays by the wonder product, dirt.

Remarkably, it is also self-healing, so that even after rain, there is soon a layer of dust, which after only weeks of ignoring - then becomes a completely protective layer of dirt.emoticon

With the Nissan, I'm pleased to astonish people with the white car (after rain) when they thought I had a beige one.

They think I have a new car every time.

Re:


Dom't believe in any type of paint protection.
The best protection of all is maintenance, ie: wash regularly, wax and polish twice a year.
If you get bird poop or tress sap on your paint, get it off ASAP.
That's it.

Re:


I agree with Tony, espeically when it comes to bird droppings, they drive me nuts and I get them off as soon as I see them and keep telling the wife to keep an eye out for them too. They're the biggest cause of paint damage regardless of having paint protection or not.

Re:


I understand the skepticism because I used to be the same. Ceramic Pro 9H nano bonds to the paint. It really is something else and actually IS paint protection... It still amazes me.

But each to their own. I won't harp on. Just thought I'd share.

Re:


How much does it cost Kris and how often you have to re-apply it?

EDIT: I think I found the answer to that....

$495.00 for the first coat and they usually recommend upto 5 layers/quotes, with $150.00 for each additional quote/layer, so a total of $1,245.00 for 5 layers to achieve best results

This price doesn't include any paint surface preparation and correction!

Cars that are 12 months old or less get Lifetime warranty and all other cars get 3 years warranty. It doesn't need to be re-applied.

Re: REAL paint protection...


The main thing with any paint protection is the matching of paint colours with any repairs done after an accident. Usually paint protection changes the colour slightly from standard and it is difficult for the repairers to do an exact match because of the differences in surface finish.

Re:


Yeah some detailers will disagree on how many layers. The one I know in Sydney recommends two layers and not really more than three. Some people do go a bit crazy. I'm going for two layers. And no, it never needs to be re-applied making it great value for money. And never needs to be polished or waxed because it's a permanent nano bonded sealant. Just maintain it with pH neutral (I use Bowdens Own Auto Body Gel) wash every now and then. Often it will only need a rinse with the Karcher.

Re:


OK, I will wait for your feedback on how it turns out with 2 layers only, as nearly all of the flashy videos I have seen where someone is banging on the car or painting over it with a paint brush had 5 layers at least.

What colour is your exy anyway?
