Serious advice needed! Re: Opticoat

Ok,

So I have a couple of questions. Please treat them separately as they'll otherwise confuse you.

1.) currently I have a vinyl wrap roof top. Does anyone know whether I should not get the roof opticoated? Does it make any difference if I did?

2.) I plan to do a vinyl wrap or plasti dip my diffuser. Should I do that after the Opticoat or before it?

I'm just a bit confused with all this so want to get some advice from you guys on what to do...thanks again!

You can talk to Picus about all that stuff .. you're the one setting up the meet at his shop this weekend, no?

If you opticoat over your roof wrap, then if you ever get sick of your wrap and take it off.. then your roof won't have the opticoat. How much less is he going to charge you for not opticoating the roof?

Same for your diffuser.

If you're going to be changing parts on your car every couple of months (based on how you've been posting) you might end up rotating out these treated parts. If that is the case is the treatment even worth it for you?

Opticoat the clear coat, not a vinyl wrap

So basically he isn't budging on price. He will charge me the same whether I do the whole car or leave out the roof+diffuser.

I might as well do the whole car then.

He's saying that early October is the earliest date he has.

No point in opti-coating a wrap IMHO...
