    Home detailing/coating - you can do it!

    I'm seeing alot of posts about people going to shops to get their MY detailed and then ceramic coated. I'm not talking about a wrap, just ceramic coating. Yet from my experience this is still quite expensive - from $800-$2000 depending on who you go to, and if it's cheaper then you have to...
