Title summarizes it. I just cannot justify spending $1,500+ on a ceramic coat and looking for more affordable options. I have definitely done my research and know that what I would not be able to do is the paint correction and polish. I know a reputable local shop that's willing to do a detail a 1 step paint correction (which is likely all I need) for about 300- 400 bucks. Has anyone ever had a professional prep the car, then do the ceramic coat yourself? What was your experience like?
