Paint Protection

Post by HaiderGill » Mon Jul 17, 2017 7:38 pm

Hi,

Getting a PCP car. Wondering if Supaguard, A-line etc are any good? After-market how much should I pay for this treatment?

Thanks
Haider

I'm thinking with stuff like bird poo, if will stop the paint work getting etched.

If you want to protect someone's elses' car, have mine detailed. At least I'll appreciate it. :thumbs:

Never had a PCP car before so a bit wary of what condition they expect back in.

They have to allow for reasonable wear and tear.
