    I had my car detailed locally and had the full Xpel wrap, Spectra Photosync and CQuartz installed. Just found out that the installer made a video of it. I am really pleased with the result. Can't tell you how glad I am to have the Xpel wrap here in San Antonio with all the rock quarries in the area. I wanted to share as I thought it was interesting and Jay did a great job:

    Re: XPEL

    Talk about timely. Just as I was talking about the quarries and all the rocks on San Antonio's roads, my hood appears to have taken two hits from rocks that pierced the film, and definitely would have done some serious gouging to paint. It did it's job. Thanks for a great product!

    What did the whole works end up costing you? Definitely going to tint, but considering the other options as well.

    Prices will vary, depending on the installer and area. I dont know how much the above installer charged, but generally speaking below:

    There are plenty of installers in San Antonio to take care of your needs: XPEL SAN ANTONIO

    For a partial front end. This includes 18-24” up the hood and fenders, front bumper, mirrors and sometimes headlights. This ranges from $795 - $1,000.

    For a full front it can range between from $1,795 - $2,100. This includes the entire hood and front fenders, front bumper, mirrors and sometimes headlights.
    Option2_FullHoodFendersMirrorsBumper.jpg

    For the full car it can range between from $5,000 - $8,000. This includes every painted surface on the car possible.

    Looking good

    I saw the video of your car and have since contacted Jay for an estimate for the wrap and tint. I hate all of the rock dropping trucks here in SA but it's not as bad as the Phoenix area. I actually had to get a windshield replaced because it was sand blasted. It was hard to see until you drove into the sun but definitely a safety issue. Any idea about the legality of those stickers on the backs of the trucks saying they're not responsible for rock damage? I would think that a dash cam video showing the rocks coming from the truck hitting the car would close the case.

    Just got this beauty back from Jay's Detail and they did an amazing job (sorry picture is not better). Full Front wrap, CQuartz protectant, and window tinting. Excellent workmanship and attention to detail. I can't recommend them enough.

    As far as I understand it the owner of the vehicle is responsible for securing anything they are transporting and anything that falls off the truck would be their responsibility. The signs are just there to try to trick people from going after them for damages as you can't just put up a sign saying you are above the law.
