    Yes, I should have done it when my car was new. 14 months later I finally handed over my car to a professional for paint correction and CQuartz. I just picked it up (thanks for the ride to Tampa, FLDarren!). My car looks amazing but I'm too lazy to take pics today, so will post some later.

    After a few referrals, I decided to hand the car over to the very capable hands of Aaron Bodle at Masterwork Detail in Tampa. As a true professional, he is very passionate about his work and beyond a perfectionist. But his customers benefit so...

    I'm thrilled with how my car looks now, and glad to have some protection on that beautiful blue paint! I'll definitely be looking to show her off at C&C this month!

    Congrats. Looking forward to the pictures. I have decided to just bite the bullet and get the car protected, detailed, coated, etc. right after purchase. I have been busy reading and picking out a vendor. It's harder than I thought it would be, but I have until September to get it sorted out.

    I would recommend it for sure. I went outside to take pics and there already dust on it from someone down the street doing yard work. Boo. So here's a little peek:

    Thanks, Pete! You know how long I've been contemplating it (Sarasota is just too far, lol). Aaron did a fantastic job and now I'm just going to focus on not undoing all his hard work. :smile:

    I just wish it would stop RAINING.

    It really depends, how much correction is needed, product applied, etc. I would say plan to spend around $800 and you should at least be in the ballpark.

    Aaron gave me very detailed instruction as well as a good list of products. I dutifully ordered everything he recommended and will do my best!
