March Update: Honda Civic Opti Coat Pro, BMW 135i Paint Restoration

Somehow we had snowfall for March, I think we are ready for Spring! Here are some various details:

Honda Civic EX-L New Car Ceramic Coating with Opti Coat Pro. Client and I took an inspection look to see if Simoniz GlassCoat was applied considering the weak paint performance. Not too much paint correction. Opti Coat Pro applied to paint, metal trim, plastic, wheel faces, and door jams for awesome longterm protection. 

As part of the Opti Coat Pro service an inspection wash includes complimentary education session to cover how to maintain your coating. Microfibers, chemicals, tools, wash styles, any manner of car care is covered. 

Wheel faces, lenses, paint, and chrome were covered with a Optimum Opti Coat Pro. OCP comes with a 5 year warranty along with marring, scratch, and acid resistance. Click below for more photos and Facebook Albums going into the full process.

New Jeep Grand Cherokee new car treatment with Optimum Gloss Coat, 22PLE Rim & Metal, and minor interior protection throughout the vehicle. Tons of deep scratches and marks all over the vehicle, spent quite awhile inspecting/searching for minor issues. 22PLE was a breeze to apply after using my LHR75E 3inch buffer to brighten the metal surface followed by multiple wheel wipe downs. Hyper Dressing, Optimum Protectant Plus for the rest of the vehicle. Check Facebook for our full depth commentary:

2015 Corvette Black Z06 Enhancement Detail

2015 Corvette Black Z06 Enhancement Detail

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”.

2015 Corvette Z06 BLACK PAINT PROTECTION FILM & Optimum GLOSS COAT

2015 Corvette Z06 BLACK PAINT PROTECTION FILM & Optimum GLOSS COAT

CORVETTE Z06 Black Xpel Paint Protection Film & OPTIMUM GLOSS COAT

Beautiful 2015 Black Corvette Z06 booked for a special detail involving full body Xpel paint protection film similar to our Laguna Blue Stingray Install. On top of the film was installation of Optimum Gloss Coat for a balance of shine & easy maintenance. Full paint protection film installation of XPel from TintedImage.com, the only Raleigh based factory trained XPel installers in the area. Day one included full decontamination, polishing, and intensive crevice cleaning for proper film adhesion. I found three spots with DA sanding marks that were eliminated easily with the Meguiars DA Microfiber system. Hendrick Auto Guard was installed prior to delivery, a ton of residue on the panels as well as faint swirling all over the paint. Claybar definitely set a super clean base for polishing and film installation. After film was installed (with great patience), all surfaces and edges were properly cleansed for application of Optimum Gloss Coating. One unique detail that included proper paint protection, a ton of custom templates for various aerodynamic splitters, and easy glossy protection. This Corvette Z06 was a tough one, all due to the black paint and extremely long panels.
