After going through the various paint protection threads and information about 3M paint protection treatment (lasts up to 6 months). I have certain questions. The 3M paint protection treatment gives fabulous results but somehow i don't find it worth:P. For cars which have done more than 2 years i think they charge some 5K approx. And in our harsh conditions this treatment is good for 6 +/- couple of months. Now the question which i have is to protect the paint and get the shining finish while painting the car, we use the clear coat. Now, can we apply an additional clear coat on our cars? Even if we go for the best available clear coat. I dont think it will cost us anything more than 10K. But in turn the quality of protection will be all together on different levels. I know that the clear coat should be applied with in 24hrs from painting the car. so that it binds well. But, here we wont be doing any painting to the panels. It's just that we want to add some real paint protection. Definitely we have to do the proper sanding and all to the existing clear coat. Did anyone have ever tried to do this?? :anyone I know it's stupid question but i would definitely like to know if we can do this or not. If yes then pros and cons.
