Hi guys,

Had the old girl detailed and ceramic coated. Needs to go back for the PPF to the front as no one has the template. A chap is going to come and digitise it.

Hope you like the photos.

Darren.

It looks great, but you really should apply the PPF before the ceramic coating. It's a lot of work to remove the ceramic coating to ensure that the PPF doesn't lift.

I agree, Tom the lad who runs the business will remove it from the front prior to installing the PPF but wanted to put some coating on it in the interim as it will be a couple of weeks before the chap is available to do the template.

They're a reputable outfit, I had failed to realise who you had used. I have a couple of friends that have used Tom to detail their cars. I have no doubt that it'll be a good job.

Your car looks great, I really like the colour Thumb

I was about to get PPF for the front of my GT4 until the dealership applied a full ceramic coat by mistake so I ended up with a £700 detail for free Wink

From what I've read it is like a glass compound and cannot just be 'wiped off' so PPF on top was a non starter. Some PPF companies say you can apply PPF over ceramic and some say No Dont know

I've debated the PPF issue for ages and whilst it's good to a degree, it's a lot of dough and if you get a stone chip/scrape that cuts through it to the paint the whole lot has to come off which has risks in itself. Then you may have to address the paint damage.

I'm going without Embarassed

This Link is a useful read as to the pros and cons of PPF

I agree, it’s just that my Porsche seems t find every flying stone, just seems to chip so easy that I really need to try it. Tom at TKdetailing is a top bloke and has said he needs to remove it on the front prior to fitting the PPF. Not sure how it’s removed but he said it’s no different to how you remove it if you need paint work doing, I guess heavy compounding.

He’ll then apply on top of the PPF. Didn’t bother with it on the 488 though.

Darren.

Yikes, that takes me back.... about 4000.. to be fair I’m not a polisher my lads took up karting in late 2012 and it’s been mad ever since almost every weekend and all around the country. They are just getting to an age where other things including drink are becoming more interesting so she’s going to be getting used again in the not to distant future....

Thanks for the memory..

Darren.
