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




Artsy fartsy shot of the application of Opti Coat Pro+




And the finished pics


Glossy






Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed spending time with this car!

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.

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,
Wes

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!




Arrival

Thanks for looking!

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.



Arrival




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


After the light buffing the metallic flake was popping in the paint




Interior getting vacuumed


Interior wipe down


Detail brush getting in all the cracks and crevices




And the finished product








Hope you enjoyed the pics!

Late post but wanted to share two cars we detailed for the 2018 Auto Show this year that you might have seen in the Exotica section beneath the escalator.
