Long time client who previously brought us his w219 CLS 500, purchased this new w218 CLS 63 AMG and brought it in again for a 1 stage polish + Opti Gloss Coat.

Not much to mention about the car itself, the paint wasn't to bad and the 1 stage was enough to bring it up to a 8.5/9 out of 10.

On to the pics.




Arrival

Claybarring the paint

Good friend bought a brand new M4 GTS and we were expecting it since Feb. In it finally came last week for 3 layers of Opti Coat Pro+ but, the paint had a little bit of issues and required a 2 stage polish especially for the lower parts of the doors. Unfortunately due to the colour we couldn't get good before and afters of the results but none the less couldn't have it in the shop and not take pictures!

Anyways on to the write up.




Arrival




Cleaning the wheels and I love the angled wheel woolies for getting that lip behind the face


Two Bucket wash always




After claybarring and drying we took some quick measurements of the paint




As stated earlier we couldn't get good before and afters of the defects so after the polishing Opti Coat Primer was applied via machine


Applied to the carbon wing




3 coats of Opti Coat Pro+ was applied


And it was applied to the paint




To the headlights


Tail lights


Face of the wheels


Door jambs


And finally the exhaust

Long time no post! Sorry for the delay, very crazy spring and summer and I didn't get the chance to sit in front of the computer until now.

Brand new R8 Spyder which I believe at the time was 1 of 2 in Canada. Very long time client, probably 10 years now so everything was very straight forward. Got the email that this new Spyder was expected and that Opti Coat Pro + was wanted for protection as well as Opti Coat Fabric for the canvas top.

Anyways no more talk, here she is.



Arrival




Claybarring the paint with the Nanoskin Mitt


Measuring the paint




I'm finding with the new Audis being delivered they are coming with some scratches specifically in certain areas and learned they don't have shipping plastics anymore but use a cover that is clipped on which I believe is the cause.

Before


After


Shot of us polishing




Preparing the top for Opti Fabric to protect the canvas top


Opti Coat Pro + about to be applied in 3 layers which is our thickest and shiniest coating


To the paint


Headlights


Taillights


Wheel faces


Doorjambs


Exhaust tips in and out




And the finished pics








Glad to finally be posting again! Hope everyone is doing well!

Thanks,

Long time client who we have been taking care of for over 7 years now brought in his brand new 991 Carrera GTS. The paint did need a 2 stage polish as there were some deeper swirls on the lower panels that needed to be buffed out before we protected the paint with Opti Gloss Coat. As well as a new service we are offering which was to protect the full front end with Xpel Paint Protection Film.

Anyways on to the pictures.



A little backwards this time with the write up, as the finished picture is the first pic lol


Headlights removed so that we could wrap the film in the edges for a seemless look as well as the film being layed down on the hood.


Full fenders being layed down




Film tucked in the edges and you can see the line here underneath the hood


Then finally everything protected with Opti Gloss Coat




As usual I hope you enjoyed the pics!

I had spoken to this client over the phone a few weeks prior and he had let me know he was going to be purchasing a slightly used RS3 out of province. Wasn't sure what to expect but definitely wanted the paint protected with Opti Coat Pro. In it finally came and after a few test spots we determined it needed a 2 stage polish.

Hope you guys enjoy the pics! I really love this colour!

We had protected this Evora S with Opti Coat Pro about 2 years back and now the owner was bringing it in for our Basic In & Out package to prep it for storage as he had no time to do it himself. Here are a few pics from the job.

Claybarring with a Nano Skin Mitt


Giving the paint a light polish/wax which is ceramic based and repairs and adds on to the exsisting coating

And the finished product








Hope you enjoyed the pics!

Long time client who previously brought us his Audi RS5 brought in his new toy, which was this R8 RWS. RWS standing for "Rear Wheel Series" that is a limited edition release for the 2nd generation R8.

Car came in and right away we could see the paint required a 2 stage polish. So in we went. I love black cars lol.

Hope you enjoy the pics!




Arrival






Always start out with the wheels first

Cleaning the inner barrel


Mitt for the wheel faces


Brush to get inside the lug nut area


Calipers as well


And the big Wheel Woolie brush for the wheel wells




2 Bucket Method hand wash always


Getting inside the gas cap


Big Wheel Woolie to clean the rear diffuser


Cleaning inside the exhaust


Claybarring the paint


Plush microfibre towel to dry the paint




Rubber and plastic trim masked off to prevent staining or burns


Measuring the paint




On to the polishing

Before


After


Before

After all the polishing was completed we wipe down the paint with alcohol to remove all the polishing oils so that the coating can have a bare surface to adhere too


Tires dressed


All glass and mirrors cleaned




And Crystal Serum Light applied.

After trying pretty much all the coatings available on the market this summer we fell in love with this one. One of the big reasons is the slick feeling similar to a wax.

When ceramic coatings came on the market thats one of the elements that was lost, I missed that slick feeling of a wax on paint. But this coating has the best of both worlds, ceramic protection with the slick feeling of a wax!


Metallic flake popping after the coating application




And the final pics
