    Including a paint correction....I'd say that's a very fair price. There's just no fast way to properly correct paint, unless you have 4 people working at one time with their own random orbital polisher, AND it's only a 1 stage correction. Some vehicles require 3 or more separate steps to get the paint fully and professionally corrected.

    Many people would be happy with a properly applied ceramic coating without correction first, IF they were happy with their paintwork as is. Many, if not most, people are pretty happy with a "shiny" car...and they think a "swirl" is a treat at Dairy Queen. LMAO

    Good thread. Needs a bump - surely there are others who have paid for or installed a coating? Would be curious to hear from others doing it themselves.

    I have a new (about 100 miles so far) 2500 that I plan to have coated. Im going to be doing it myself using Optimum gloss. I have ordered enough to do my truck, wife car and maybe my Jeep Wrangler. Will update with results/photos.

    Here ya go...

    The dealership wanted about $1,800 to ceramic coat my truck for me. While there is some work involved especially on a big Mega there is no way I would pay $1,800 for this. I spent a total of about $250 on all supplies (most of which I will be using for the next year or so for general washing and care). The product I used is called Opti-Gloss and while I don't think it is technically a ceramic coating it provides a similar function. The cost for the Opti-Gloss was $87 on Amazon and was enough for me to do my wife Subaru as well as my mega cab. I covered the entire truck including wheels and wheel wells.

    For anyone interested I followed the process outlined by a company called cougar chemical. They have 7 videos showing a step by step process from start to finish with the coating. I also bought most of my supplies from them.



    I have since washed both my wife car and my truck and washing is easy. It looks and performs like the best wax job you could ever dream of yet it lasts for about two years. I've seen a few spots of bird droppings since the coating and it reacts totally different as does bugs. The bird poop barely stays on - most of it just seems to bounce off. Most of the bug guts seem to fall off and what doesn't can easily be wiped off. The stuff is amazing.

    And it looks great!
