    Yea even from factory there are flaws in the paint that can often be corrected easy for someone who knows what they are doing. Make the paint look as good as it can before the ceramic coat goes over top.

    Buffing and polishing to remove small imperfections in the paint, this normally needs to be done to a certain degree before applying ceramic and PPF.

    Yep, mine had a very light thumb print on the top of the quarter panel by the rear window. How that got past QC I'll never know. I got it out with a buffer. That and the damn bubbles in my stripes. They were bad!

    This won't be of any help to us.

    That’s not good news for sure. Mine rolled off the finale assembly line last week Thursday and is still in the mod shop, hopefully it gets completed and on a truck this week or early next week. It’s scheduled to arrive on 4/20

    where are you located in michigan? i know of a few places to get PPF if youre interested. Motor city auto spa, and newlayer customs do PPF. ive heard newlayer is a better place but i have not used either of them myself. its just what ive heard from a few people that have had work in the area. Motorcity autospa does ceramic coatings as well
