Other Coating packages
Coatings don't stop at your paint. We can protect most surfaces for years to come.
Wheels can be coated as well! You have the option of coating just the faces or the wheel barrels as well. The barrels will require the wheels to be pulled off and further prepped. This will make brake dust much easier to get off, and cleaning time overall much faster. *You can coat polished aluminum, however this DOES NOT replace the need to repolish these types of wheels. They’ll clean up easy, they’ll bead up nicely, but when it is time to repolish, it will also be time to recoat.*
Includes claying and water spot removal on glass and coated in 2 layers of SB3 Optic 1 year coating. Glass coatings help repel water instantly which adds more visibility when you’re driving in the rain and also reduces friction for your windshield wipers making them last longer.

Your ceramic coating questions answered.
What is Ceramic Coating? Industry-grade ceramic coating is a chemical polymer solution that is applied to the exterior of a vehicle to protect it from external paint damage. Typically applied by hand, it blends with the paint of your car and creates an additional hydrophobic layer of protection.
Installing a ceramic coating is an extremely tedious process. Below is a breakdown of how ceramic coatings are installed.
100% Hand Car Wash
Using PH neutral soap and a clean wash mitt and safe towel to dry.
Clay bar treatment to mechanically decontaminate the paint followed by a chemical decontamination with iron removers.
Labor intensive Machine Paint Correction
We must make your car’s paint as close to perfect as possible so that we don’t seal those defects under the coating.
Surface Cleansing Coating Prep
We apply an alcohol-based cleansing solution to give the coating a proper surface to bond too. Unlike wax coatings bond to your clear coat.
Tedious Panel by Panel Installation
We apply the coating panel-by-panel with an applicator and special soft towels to prevent further damage.
Ceramic coatings last anywhere from 6 months to 7+ years depending on the formula.
The cost of a ceramic coating ranges from $300 – $3000 depending on two factors. How much paint correction is required & how much durability is desired.
Removing a ceramic coating requires labor intensive cutting and polishing with a machine polisher, pads, and abrasive compounds. You must be very careful to not go past the clearcoat.
A ceramic coating bonds to your clear coat and a wax does not. A wax also diminishes with heat and chemicals ceramic coatings are chemically and UV resistant.
The installation of a ceramic coating can take anywhere from 6-15 hours depending on the condition of your vehicles paint since most of the time is spent in paint correction pre-install.
The best way to maintain a ceramic coating is to hand wash your vehicle using a PH balanced soap diluted properly. You should consider drying the vehicle with a blower or extremely soft towel with little pressure.
WATER SPOT RESISTANCE
Improved formulation to increase the resistance of water spotting on coated vehicles
SUPERB HYDROPHOBIC QUALITY
Water contact angle that surpasses 110° and retaining close to this angle for a long periodDEEP GLOSS
Unmatched gloss that lasts years.
EASE OF MAINTENANCE
Surface stays clean for a longer period thanks to the anti-fouling effect
The main difference is that paint protection films are clear films that are applied applied to painted surfaces and are actually more scratch resistant because they have self-healing capability.
Ceramic coatings help a little with scratches but they do not compare in that aspect to clear bra or ppf.
Coatings can be applied to fabric, paint, wheels, trim, & glass essentially to anything with a clear coat. Coatings are meant to protect from UV rays and make your car very easy to wash once the coating cures.
PPF usually comes with a 10 year warranty and coatings vary from 6 months to lifetime warranty.
