You can coat just one panel and the SPS coating I use is one of the harder on the market so it would give you more scratch resistance than many if the consumer grade coatings. Also I`m sure after doing a coating job I would have enough left to do your bumper cover. Let me know if I can be any help.
    awesome. I don`t mind driving out there, let me know what days/times you are usually free and we can plan something.

    to the other questions I buffed out the swirls when I initially got the car back. then I took it to this brushless car wash place and it looked just awful after (only the bumper). I buffed it again and it was fine for a while even after I washed it by myself, but then a few washes later it started looking swirly again. I don`t know, maybe the swirls were never buffed out in the first place, but that seems odd since the severity after the shop washed it was just insane. it was hard to look at. now it can pass for most people won`t see what I see, but like all you guys I am particular about my paint and it bothers me!!

    no it wasn`t service king btw. it was a local body shop that state farm recommended (and also had great reviews on yelp). I talked with the guy a lot about what he was going to do before he did it, and I really thought it was going to turn out OK.

    Just curious about Service King. I`ve seen and heard about some pretty poor work coming out of Service King. I`m usually available just about all the time. Dealing with a spinal fluid leak from surgery last week, so it will be a week or so. I`m confident we`ll come up with a solution to the problem and it won`t cost you anything.

    Gee, you`ve got other stuff to think about! Nice that you`re still planning to help, hope you get the post-surgery stuff all squared away.

    Thank you. I`m confident between the Medtronics rep and the neurosurgeon they`ll get it taken care of. If it doesn`t stop by Monday afternoon they`ll go back in Tuesday morning at 7:15 and stitch it up.
