My GT is going in for paint correction and ceramic coating.........

Has anyone else had this done? Mine is going in to Venomous Works in Yorktown, VA next week to get the paint correction done and Croftgate Assurance Ceramic Coating applied.

Any input or opinions is appreciated!

You will be very happy with the results. Be sure to ask about their recommendations for maintenance. Most ceramic coat manufacturers have some sort of "reload" that reactivates the hydrophobic molecules in the coating and keeps it slick.

I had this done 3 months ago. Its AMAZING!! Took about a week with the correction and the 3 coats of the ceramic with curing in between, but worth every minute I suffered without her! The dealer gave me all the warranty paperwork and aftercare instructions. I only use hyperwash on it, and use very thick edge free microfiber rags from the Rag Company. I will attach a pic from the day I finally picked her up.. The shine stops traffic!

How much does the paint correction and treatment cost, if you don't mind me asking.

Can be anywhere from 600-1200, depending on the condition of your paint and how many coats of ceramic you go for.

Been doing a little research on this, it's different than what I had pictured. Does it add any additional protection? Like from rock chips? Or people bushing their coats against the car when they get out of theirs in the parting lot? Or is it mainly a more longer lasting solution to waxing?

It does add an additional layer of protection. It hardens on top of the clear coat. Rock chips, not so much. But against people brushing up against the car and swirls from MF towels, yeah it is more resistant to scratches.
