During the process of ordering paint, we will always give you two estimated quotes. One will include both the Top Coat Protective Spray and the Dip Guard, and one will not. Although it is highly suggested that you get both items for proper care and protection of your dipped vehicle, it is not required in order for your car to be painted. Once the car is painted, it is the customers' responsibility to take proper care in maintaining the dip. We will give the customer the option of bringing their vehicle to us where we can wash it, and apply the Top Coat Protective Spray for an additional labor and supply fee. For any questions, please feel free to contact us by email, by phone - including text messaging (469-323-2294). If you haven't already, please visit the "Proper Car Care" tab to learn more about taking proper care of your dipped car. Thank you, & God Bless!
