    I finally ironed out the final paperwork and went to pick it up yesterday. It was flat bedded directly to Costa Mesa for Paint correction (I don't think much will be needed), whole body PPF, Nano Ceramic, window tint and other cosmetic procedures. It will be another agonizing 4-6 weeks. So I will live vicariously through you guys in the mean time. Here are some pictures...

    I am sorry man... Have to protect that paint and might as well do a one stop shop than coming ang doing several times. So let's suffer together again!

    Overall protects your paint/PPF. Gives it water repellent/resistant properties, protects from contaminants, light scratches and keeps the paint glossy wet look in short words for 3-5 years.

    Remember get then to jack the car and get the PPF applied on the painted surface under the car. In the door jamb is also good :)

    A $45k paint job will teach you patience.

    none of that should take anywhere close to that timeframe for an experienced shop unless you’re letting it sit there until they have time to get to it

    There are some cosmetic procedures being done as well. Undergoing plastic surgery. You know women and California... This babe is no different. Will submit after pictures and you guys tell me what you think, if you can tell the difference.
