Gathering some quotes for getting the front of my 2021 HE XPEL coated. Getting quoted just under 2k for the front clip, and 6k to 7k(!) for the whole vehicle. Am I crazy in thinking that's super expensive for the whole vehicle? This is in SoCal
What did the full coverage run you?I have my HE fully wrapped with xpel. You get what you pay for, and it is worth paying a bit more for really good labor. It is easy to do a crap job with this stuff and have it peeling 2-3 years down the like (i.e. dealerships). I just finished re-applying 3m wrap to portions of my gravel race bike and did a new road race frame a few month earlier. These are "easy", partial coverage applications and I sure didn't do a great job with either, but it is strictly functional so I don't care much. Point being it will peel in a year or two, but its just material cost and time, or I'll be on to a new frame anyway.
But, it is not cheap. By any means. It took a full week of labor at a really good shop that I have used for a long time.
Mentioned this on another thread, but I decided on a full clear self healing XPEL Ultimate Plus wrap on my HE. I decided that after the black GX this would be the best way to fully enjoy all uses of the truck, which will see mild trail time, dumps of snow that need to be pushed off, long...forum.ih8mud.com
What’s special about a HE plastic wrap?If its truly a HE they have to use special XPEL. That is probably why it costs more. My base model cost 2100 for full hood, full fender, a pillars, windscreen to sunroof and door edges in November 2020.
They only had it one day but I suspect an HE would require a week to install due to how special they are and the care that will need taken when handling an HE. Be sure to let them know its an HE. They may only have the prints for a cheap base model.
Loaded with sarcasm but its laughable it has to be pointed out in so many posts.
This is funny. It's exactly the same conversation as the thread I started and linked,.
You only want to do what you think is right, whatever that may be.
