    Looks great. How much did it cost? What condition was the paint in prior to the coating? How long will it stay looking good for? What's going on with the tape in those pictures? Seems like strange areas to mask off.

    He was a personal friend that is certified detailer and mostly does exotics. Runs around 800 to 1500 for all in seem to be the going rate.

    5 year warranty

    Hoods taped in sections of 2x2 for proper compound to paint ratio is what he said.
    They also mask off all plastic parts.

    Total job was about 6hrs. The coat is still Harding so should even get more glassy.

    Paint was pretty good as it's low miles

    Dang!!! I miss my C5. Dark Bowling Green Metallic with a LME built 402 and a D1SC Procharger (looks like a Procharger badge on yours). Made over 700RWHP, back in 2009, hurt a lot of feelings in that car haha!!

    Agree, I always called mine the Poor man's Ferrari, my Orange C6 was awesome, only thing I did in 10 yrs of ownership is oil change and replaced the tires (just can't drive it much with my 6 yrs old)
