NYC detailer/3m Protection Installer?

From another thread:

I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with them? With all the talk of Premier doing such great jobs applying paint protection I would like to find a company in the NYC metro area that does equal work to Premiers, who is located in SoCal.

if you know of any other shop/company that does great work post it up here also. Thanks

I've spoken to Gus. Debating whether to get it done. They only do 3M film. Have looked them up a bunch they're pretty well known for V1 mirror etching installs and exotic detailing. He said they have clear bra samples in the shop you might want to just go and stop by. Would be about $1,500 for full front, rear bumpers, fenders, and partial hood. They also do Huper Optik tinting. The only alternative in NY is www.detailingdynamics.com who it looks like uses 3M as well.

I checked out that thread on Fchat, I spoke with Eddy from DD and he doesn't recommend me doing the full hood b/c imperfections in the 3M wrap plastic become very visible when doing the full hood, he said he could go all the way upto the bulge but doesn't recommend going past it. Detailing dynamics work is apparently top notch and I am very surprised about this all, his quote is a $1460 for front bumper, side skirts wheel archs, headlights, and partial hood and fenders.

What do you think? I really want to get the full hood done, I don't know what to do now, should I just get the partial hood done?
