We're not your average ceramic coating company – oh no, we're the rebels of the industry, here to shake things up and give you the protection you deserve without breaking the bank.

Say goodbye to being ripped off and hello to a ceramic coating that actually does what it says – and then some!

Let's be real – getting ripped off by other ceramic coating companies is about as fun as a flat tire on a road trip. But fear not, because Gado`s ceramic coating range is here to save the day! We're not in the business of overcharging or under delivering on your ceramic coating (cough, cough, couldn`t name a single company like that..) – we're in the business of making sure your car stays looking fabulous for years to come with the best paint protection available. With a Gado ceramic coating, what you see is what you get – quality paint protection that won't let you down.









Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes at Shoto headquarters? Well, hold onto your seatbelts, because we're about to spill the beans on our top-secret ceramic coating research methods.

Picture this: our team of "scientists" (cue the lab coats and safety goggles) embarked on a mission to find the ultimate ceramic coating. Armed with clipboards and magnifying glasses, they scoured the globe, testing every product they could get their hands on trying to find a ceramic coating that would do even half of what it claims. And after months of tireless research, they reached a groundbreaking conclusion:

But here's where things get really funny – when we say they found nothing, we mean nothing. Not even close. Nada. Zilch. In fact, our "scientists" found that most other ceramic coatings couldn't hold a candle to Gado ceramic coating – they were more like glorified atrifacts of the past than state-of-the-art protection!
