    I am looking for a great detailer who can install PPF, ceramics, etc. If anyone has recent experience and can make a recommendation, I would appreciate it. I am closest to Center Valley, but would travel as far as Philly for the right installer. I would even consider an installer just across the PA/NJ border. My understanding is that many of the major film/ceramic brands are similar and the key is to find the right installer who has experience working on exotic cars/Ferraris.

    Thanks in advance.

    T. Hunt at Museo Detail and Modern Elix PPF in West Chester, PA. They share the same shop and do excellent work. Including all the Algar cars.
    They can arrange transportation for your car as well.

    Thanks! This is perfect as I am buying a new car at Algar and will just have it delivered to their shop as opposed to my home. I will call them on Tuesday. This is a big help. Thanks again.

    I have heard good comments about Oakes Detailing in West Chester PA. I have not yet used them, so my mention is second hand info.

    TJsBeer - thanks. I spoke to Jay today who provided me with pricing. He mentioned doing all of Algar's work as well. I am just waiting for the next few months for delivery of my car! He recommended the Competition package for PPF, ceramic on the entire car, and the Wheels Off Package. In total about $5500 worth of work. He was not sure of any new car prep work on the factory paint - he wanted to wait to see the actual car but said to anticipate another $200 or so. Overall a good conversation. Thanks again.

    In general you should ask for before and after pictures under the same lights with whomever you choose to use. I also like to get paint meter readings (pre PPF) by any company I would use. The very good detailers should be easily be able to provide you this data, Just my ,2 cts and good luck!

    My 575 is with Modern Elix for PPF right now. Literally haven't heard anything but a 10/10 review, but haven't needed PPF recently.
    Have has work done by T @ Museo though, and they are indeed as good as people say.
