...Her :)...Lize is a "bird", if I remember the application of the term from a previous post. If I'm wrong I'm sure others will weigh in to straighten me out :oops::eek::LOL:

Thats interesting when I was reading about matt vinyl on the internet people seemed to think it was difficult to maintain. I love green cars in all shades, yours looks great.
As a side note, the Satin graphics package on the Hellcat is painted. It isn't a vinyl as what's on the other trim levels.

Opps had no idea, you can't really go by the names members choose as a screen name - could be their car, kid, dog, invented ;)

Any time I've used the term bird to describe the opposite sex...it's never worked out well for me...:(
But in their defense...coocoo...dodo..and big...combined with bird...generally isn't a term or endearment...

I'm going to forget a wrap and go for a ceramic coating and a garage with undercover wash bay.

I've gone full circle on ceramic coatings. It would be different if it was maintenance free, but you still have to wash(frequency dependent on cars' use obviously), and then clay bar and apply a silica-sealant...at least yearly if not every 6 months. You still get some lines and swirls too in it. I ceramic-coated my last two cars and didn't do this one. Just not worth it to me. I drive my car and have it parked outside more than a lot of you on here though so I talk about this as someone who does not have a weekend garage queen.

Paint protection film definitely is worth it to me. Have your paint professionally cleaned/detailed, put paint protection on as much of the car as you can afford, and then keep it coated in a high-end silica-sealant every 3-4 months or so. I can apply/remove silica sealant in almost the same amount of time it takes me to wash it. I use Reload from Carpro.

Good luck!

I was on the same question in July. I opted for a wrap, and the color is great. But, the small imperfections that happen with every wrap drives me nuts. I will be ripping the wrap off in a couple of months and ceramic coating

Good to know, I decided I'm just too worried about a wrap to try it.

Agreed man, mine is nice and all, but a wrap is a more temporary fix than a ceramic coat
