Default Best Paint Protection?

I just traded my 2017 Lightening Blue Raptor for a 2018 Shadow Black. In the past, Iíve always had my local Ziebart apply their Diamond Gloss system to all of my vehicles. So my question is, what other paint protection systems have you used and if possible tell me how they compare to Diamond Gloss?

Artic Coating (Ceramic Coating) is very popular now. I've done both my truck and my corvette and came out great.Best Paint Protection?-photo302.jpgBest Paint Protection?-photo367.jpg

I decided to try the Opti Coat Pro. Got it done last week and it turned out pretty nice. I can’t wash it for 7-10 days, so today is 9 and it’s supposed to rain tomorrow. Figures...

Finally got to detail it after the initial curing time of the Opti-Coat Pro. I like it! The paint is slick!

The best paint protection is PPF. Very expensive though. After that, ceramic. Your truck looks great.
