2015 Corvette Black Z06 Enhancement Detail

Yet another beautiful New Corvette Z06 with 233 miles. Z06 enhancement detail to establish a great protective base and to deal with mediocre paint marring issues. Swirls, DA Buffing from the factory, and scratches all throughout the painted surface. No coating, as it was sub zero and constantly raining. Plus the owner egged me on to create a “showroom shine”.

Level 2 Enhancement: Porsche 997 911 White

Level 2 Enhancement: Porsche 997 911 White

A basic exterior enhancement to this low mileage 997 911 in great condition. We paid particular attention to the front section of this vehicle for TVP Auto’s Paint Protection Film Treatment later this week. All gaps checked, extra decontamination on the hood. Vehicle needed a light polish to really brighten and clarify the surface. Interior was lightly dusted and vacuumed. A thorough enhancement to ensure no marks or embedded dirt within the surface. White can be pretty with the right preparation. Extra layer of Powerlock was applied for easier PPF application.

Level 2 Vehicle Enhancement Package

Detail Type:

Minor Paint Correction – Vehicle Enhancement

Description:

Our best value package for enhancing your vehicle that has serious paint defect issues. Drastically improve your paint while maintaining the paint thickness integrity. We do not claim it can fully correct a surface and make it swirl free. After proper vehicle cleaning and decontamination, we do a test panel as an example for client approval. Our final results are based off of client expectations (budget, visibility, ownership length), how the vehicle reacts (paint hardness, severity of damage), and what is the proper safe effective procedure.

Cost – From $300 – 600, all dependent on client expectations and initial test areas

Package Details:

  • One Day Service involves 8-10 hours if not more time.
  • – 25-50% Paint Defect Removal of swirls, scratches, hazing, marring, etching
  • – Will not remove deep defects such as random isolated scratching, severe swirls, marring, or correct years of neglect
  • – All flat panels of vehicle will be polished such as doors, fenders, trunk, roof, hood. We want our 5.5 inch polisher to safely polish the area
  • – small areas are done by hand or with a small 4inch buffer attachment (mirrors, bumper edges, small concave areas less than 2-4 inches in size)
  • – All bumpers, side skirts, are lightly buffed, we preserve the integrity of the plastic by being less aggressive
  • – This package is usually an exterior based detail, interior work is highly varied based off condition & customer expectation
  • – Package is suggested for Overspray & Severe Decontamination Details
  • – Includes standard interior: vacuum, waterless wipe down, dusting edges or cracks.
