Default ‘18 C4S Night Blue full body paint protection film install

I took my night blue C4S early yesterday morning from Indian Wells in the desert over to Costa Mesa to have Moe and his team at Glistening Perfection perform a full car paint protection film install topped with a nano coat for full effect. This car was delivered to me in December and I have been doing a good amount of research since on all the different options and scenarios available as many have posted before me. Having been driven for three months I decided to do a paint rejuvenation in order to seal an original condition paint under the film. I had basically decided on doing a full car install but still had many questions on technique, products, and quality. I was led to Moe by other professionals in the industry not from this immediate area. He made it very clear through thoughtful questioning that it is a very individualized decision making process. As this car will be driven in both Montana and the desert I was looking for a good amount of protection without sacrificing the overall aesthetic of the paint. I decided to go with the Suntek Ultra and a nano coating on top. The quality and care of the installation is of utmost importance so my concerns have been alleviated after much discussion with Moe and seeing his extremely advanced facilities (stage dedicated rooms with task specific led grid lighting installed). Moe is filled with knowledge and experience along with an incredible amount of pride for his work and craft. That said I can’t wait to see the results as prep started today.

I know a lot of fellow owners out there are wrangling with the same decisions so I asked Moe to post updates on this thread as the process moves forward and he kindly agreed. Here we go!

These are a few post delivery photos taken in December (not the best of light):

Will be in stadium 1 tomorrow for men’s semis. I have properties here but yes a Montanan. See you’re an Eastern Canadian- often wonder same bought BC and Alberta in desert not to mention Whitefish! Better to play tennis out here than watch but Fed creates an exception. You attending?

I was very leery on going this color over non metallic black but have to say it really is amazing. It will give different looks depending on time of day, cloudiness etc. I am very happy I went against my black car habit and chose this. It looks fantastic and very original!

You made the right decision to head south to Moe's shop, I surely was. Your car's appearance will be transformed by his process. I never get tired of watching his work, so I am looking forward to see his photos

Not this time. Have fun! Not sure what you mean by buying BC and Alberta in desert and Whitefish but many Torontonians have winter houses in Florida and summer cottages in northern Ontario.

Ha, one step ahead as they’re on their way arriving Monday! Would think factory changes these to clear LED in near future 🤔
