I've been enjoying my time in the garage over the past few weeks, doing the winter cleanup and applying a couple more layers of protection. Really pleased with the results - the PPF is still basically perfect as far as I can tell, almost two years on. There are a couple of small stone chips, but nothing bad enough to warrant replacing the film in those areas yet. The best thing for me about it is the "self healing" aspect - I'm careful with my washing methods, but not over the top paranoid, so I don't doubt that I'd be creating a small amount of swirling on paint. On PPF it's just gone after a few hours in the sun, and it's back to the perfect paint finish "locked in" under the film.

(I am using the car during the winter as I can't bear the thought of it being locked away for months, but only on dry days when road salt is a non-issue.)

Absolute beauty. You could just get totally lost in the depth of that paintwork.
