I just do it myself. But I pretty much do everything myself.

Of what I learned, the products that are available to the home guy are not the same as those available to professionals. I know I am not confident in my ability to do this.

I used Cquartz on my wrangler, and other than running it through a touchless carwash when it gets muddy, it never gets hand washed. Three years later, and it has a good gloss even with only that level of cleaning. Water still beads right up.

it dosent seem to be the best trade off to me, 1500 for ceramic and 300 per year to touch it up or waxing twice a year with a good wax?

or buy a consumer grade ceramic like Adams and apply for a couple hundred bucks or just wax and be done with it.

Since my entire front clip is ppf and i dont think ceramic will do much for it. i think ill just go with adams and maybe reapply every 2 years as needed

Yes, if you a DIY type person, this is not hard to do. I have used a several different coatings. My favorite is EXO&CSL

I did it myself for about $100 total, four hours of work, and it'll last a few years. Ceramic coating is so easy to do that I wouldn't even consider paying someone to do it. If the car needs it, you could pay to have a paint correction done first for about $200, then get a ceramic coating and the supplies you need for $100 and do the rest yourself.
