    yeah the full-car wrap on the GT350 is normally $7k but I talked them down to $6,500
    got it done at AutoArmour, they are just off Miramar Rd
    I do recommend them, they are the best in the business, but they are expensive.
    if you need cheaper I can recommend another installer as well

    Thanks Racer- I just sent quote request to them. Not sure if I will do whole car or front end/hood only. Pretty costly but I see there is value in the protection. Appreciate the prompt reply.

    yeah FYI when I first went in for the quote it was to get the front end down only, that included the hood, the entire front bumper area, and the mirrors and that was going to be $1,800. It was advised to get the lower rocker panels done as well, then the project kind of grew. My buddy/detailer who did a paint correction on the car before the wrap advised me that the Ford paint is really cheap & soft and would not hold up over time & lots of detailing, this scared me into wrapping the entire car while is was still mint. Post up pics when you get it done.

    I am planning to do mine . I am not sure what kind of paint protection is better. I also have to find a lace that do this kind of work in Toronto or GTA.

    You can't really go wrong with either Suntek Ultra or Xpel. The skill of the installer makes all the difference. You're going to want a full paint correction prior to application, so figure that into the cost.

    I went with full-wrap Suntek Ultra with Modesta overlaid. The gloss and ease of keeping it clean are both phenomenal.

    Hi
    Thanks for the reply. I am going to put Xpel on front half plus side rocker panels. After that ceramic coating on full car.
    Now I have couple of questions:

    1. Xpel have self healing properties. Installer advised me that ceramic coating should be done on the whole car including xpel. SO my question is if xpel have self healing properties why do we need to put ceramic coating on xpel? Wont that make xpel self healing useless?!!
    I asked this question to the installer and he could not give me a straight satisfying answer. What are your thoughts and experience with xpel and ceramic.?

    2. I am planning to install side rocker stripes. Should I install before or after applying xpel/ceramic?

    Thanks in advance.
