    Not sure if to post this here or in the model 3 forum. Should I cross post?

    Does anyone know a reliable coater in PDX, preferably in Washington county or in the Lake Oswego area? I'd rather not have to drive into Portland.

    I've never wrapped or coated any car. Never waxed a car. Never even washed a car or had it washed for me! That's what rain is for, was my thinking.

    This is the year everything changes.

    I need someone reliable to give me advice about all this.

    Best auto detailing / opticoat installer I know if Jason Barker @ Fresh Start Detail
    I also recommend using TCT Wraps in Hillsboro for PPF

    I've had a mixed bag of experiences with Apex Auto to be honest.

    Thank you for the recommendations so far. I should probably visit a shop to see what the options are - I'm a little confused about the whole topic (the various types of wraps and coats).

    I had our model 3 wrapped in XPEL Stealth by Dave Ball, Roadrunner Protective Films & Graphics LLC

    He did a fantastic job. Can’t recommend him enough.

I don't need to confuse or pressure people into buying any of my services, this is what allows me to be 100% honest and open about all things detailing related, whether I offer the service or not.

    Id seriously consider a vinyl wrap, even if its just clear, and if desired ceramic coat that for even easier washing.

    Had my tesla x vinyl wrapped/chrome deleted at Trifer in Eugene Oregon, plan to go back for a ceramic coat soon. Highly recommend. Shop was busy, but guy worked day off and a few kate nights. It did take 8 days tho vinyl/chrome/tint IMG951984.jpg Wrap in process
