    Hey Rasky... I just looked at that xpel body wrap. Very interesting stuff. I don't know if I would want it on my car, but it would definitely help a lot with any sort of scratches and such. I'd have to see a completed one in person. Plus... I would imagine it would almost have to cost 1,000.00 or so to have it done? There's a place in PA that does good work ... I might email them and see what they charge.

    Sorry, Eric from Trushine is the closest to you that I know of. You could always call him and see how much he'd charge to travel to you.

    It looked pretty dang good in person. They had a white R8 with a full wrap in their booth at SEMA and the texture is nice and smooth....much better than 3M! I honestly hate PPF film since it's a PITA once it's trashed and swirled. Nothing worse than having to polish a black car with film that's equally as trashed. With the self healing film it should never need to be polished!

    It's hard to find good installers, but if you get in good with one they can be pretty reasonable, especially when you send them lots of referrals. I have a few friends that install so I paid $175 for 18" of the 3M film on my hood and fenders. Obviously full panels will cost more and the Xpel Ultimate film is a bit more expensive. I'm considering taking their classes and offering it as a service.

    I've been looking at it too. I was on their site ... the classes would be cool, but they are EXPENSIVE!!
