mikegibsonSorry, I can't help with a recommendation near Guilford but I did get some feedback from the firm doing my front-end PPF (in a few weeks) on the logistics of doing the sills and rear arches. They made a couple of points which ultimately dissuaded me from having sills/rear quarters done which might be worth considering. The sills are joined to the rear wheel arch so doing sills alone doesn't yield a seamless result; they can do it but not as good a result as they would like; I am going to discuss this with them again when I drop the car off. The PPF shark fin already fitted to the rear arches can be problematic to remove; they hadn't experienced issues but had heard of others having problems removing them and causing damage to underlying paint; maybe the factory fitted shark fin is applied to the paint before its fully hardened off? Doing only partial coverage of rear arch is not possible without leaving a visible line so if you want a seamless look, you end up doing whole rear quarter. Having done that, you may as well have whole rear end PPF'd. As I said, that's the feedback I got. No way did I get the sense the chap I spoke to was trying to sell me a full PPF, he was happy to do waht I wanted and I felt he was genuinely trying to point out possible downsides.

DfeatherstoneGreetings All, I am looking for a recommendation on a firm within reasonable distance from Guildford that could do some additional PPF work. I got the standard PPF from the factory, but the rear wheel arches and sill on the 992 could really use some extra protection. If you have first hand experience with a firm and are happy with the results, it would be very helpful to hear from you. Many thanks, Don
RichardPCGBDamian at Autotrilogy is the best. He did my Cayman last year and is currently removing a wrap from my recently acquired 2020 992 C2 before I take delivery then he will be doing the PPF and coatings when he can fit me in next month. Cannot recommend him highly enough.
