One of the first things I do is ceramic coat my vehicles. So easy to keep pristine looking. I also get the window tint in ceramic which helps with the heat even more than regular window tint. My windshield has an almost clear ceramic tint as well to help protect the dash from the heat. It does wonders.
Congrats, and it looks so pretty! If you can swing having PPF put on the hood, you should consider it. I took my car to have PPF put on the front bumper, ABC pillars, and rocker panels. We discovered that there was already a small chip on the hood. I didn't even have 200 miles on it at the time and had done very little highway driving, so how it happened is beyond me. Anyway, I just got back today from having PPF put on the hood, too. AND...it now has a ceramic coating. I've spend a small fortune on the back end of this purchase trying to protect the paint. I will tell you this--these have the thinnest paint I've ever seen. As I was looking the car over just now, I found a tiny place right above a rocker panel on the smoked chrome that runs along it where the "smoked chrome" paint has come off. It has probably been there the whole time, and I have never noticed it, but still... Depending on how this vehicle holds up mechanically and cosmetically, this may be my last Chevrolet purchase.
