Here is a post I put up on C8 forums, maybe it should go here. There are other posts about AvalonKing here some good some bad.
If anybody has more details about clear coat hardness for the C8 it would be nice.

`To those who had their C8`s done already, good for you. No scratches for you.
I`m doing mine DIY next spring and here is why.
The hardness of the clear coat on the C8 is rated as soft to med (chk out the US forums) so it may scratch easily.
I`ll realized this after taking delivery and asking the dealer not to wash the car and he did.
There were about a dozen or so scratches etc. Very easy to remove with Meguiars Scratch X.
Scratches removed easy and scratches added easy too.
I picked the kit from AvalonKing . There are many Youtube reviews where a discount of $25 us is offered. Try the one from Pan The Organizer showing how easy to apply.
I would visit their site www@ avalonking.com. Sometimes they offer a great discount the the `ZOMIB` one or $30 us off and free ship to Canada.`

See additional post on my quest to ceramic coat on C8 Forums from me.
For some reason, I can`t copy the url or html file from there to here.

Looks great. I’ve used the Adam’s graphene ceramic coating about 6 times now and am. Rey impressed. The results are amazing and pretty safe and simple to use.
