    how does it look on the flat black parts like the roof and fenders? Id be afraid it would look too "shiny" or does it just look like its been freshly washed/detailed? Im also curious if that provides any UV protection or if that coating would interfere with doing other UV protecting coatings (ie 303) What interior portions did they do?

    The black roof and fenders have a very light shine, but they look natural. UV protection is the primary reason I had it done because I know that black has a tenancy to turn grey over time. Inside was done on cloth and carpet as well as dash, etc.

    Compare for yourself. Coated vs straight off the truck.

    Well I learned today that the ceramic coating doesn't stand up to door dings, not that I expected it to.
    Only three weeks after picking it up someone got me on the back door hinge.... I wish I'd had my running boards to block this kind of damage, but they are on backorder. Almost looks intentional where they got me.

    That looks more like an actual rock chip to me. That’s why I have my hinges lined with 8 mil mountain bike frame protector. Still look brand new and can’t even see it unless I point it out. Still a bummer none the same though. Sorry you have that one your door. Hopefully you can find some touch up and match it

    It has been 5 months since I had my ceramic coating and it is the middle of a sloppy mid-west winter. I can say at this point I am very pleased with the coating. The JeepJeep still gets dirty, but it is easy to wash off.

    I had my SS Camaro done in Ceramic Pro a few years ago. Still holding up.

    I worked with Chicago Auto Pros (Glen Ellyn location; they have another location as well) for my daughter's 2018 black JLUR that she parks outdoors at Wheaton College. Justin was my contact there. They sent a progress video as they worked on it over 2 days and did a great job. I went with Modesta BC-08 ... which is on the lower end of what they offer and have been very satisfied. She was home this weekend after a few weeks of bad weather/salt on the roads, etc... Was impressed by how little 'stuck' to the Jeep and how well it cleaned up. Very pleased with the ease of care and shine. My first ceramic coating experience, but if it remains durable will continue with each new vehicle. Highly recommend Justin and Chicago Auto Pros. Scheduling my new sting gray 2019 JLUR with them in coming weeks.

    Time for some rock rails. They will destroy their door on your rock rail before hitting your door. Man, pisses me off when I see this.
