The process can take a couple of hours for the basic 6 month protection depending on what type of detailing package and correction is done before hand to several days. The 2-5 year packages will require curing times up to 12+ hrs indoors. The overall application itself can take several hours for even a small vehicle and the paint correction process prior to the coating can take several hours to a couple days before coating is applied. Most coatings about the 6 month package will require the vehicle to be left at our shop.
