Hi,

Our car was badly ended with sandblasting agent with all the surface roughly.
Browsing web and saw a few company offering the polishing but the price was very high and at the same time,they selling the package costing 1k.

Got a very SATISFIED workmanship fm Joseph Mobile grooming.
at $128 after discount. The car surface is very smooth and grooming was done without our expectation.

If you keep wax on your car a couple times a year you will be fine, that paint protection is a waste of money as the new paint on cars today have clear coat over the paint already.

I beg to differ, as the film is so inpenetrable that it is waaaaay more protective than clear coat on a factory paint job.

Having said that, I don't like the look of the films anyway ;)

But for the OP - try autobacs, they would do it for you.

depending on the make of the film, some films will yellow (dry out) over time, and when you remove the film, the color won't match anymore.
