Paint Enhancement: 2003 Boxster Lapis Blue

Paint Enhancement: 2003 Boxster Lapis Blue

VEHICLE INFORMATION:

One step paint enhancement to improve the appearance of this low mileage Boxster. Noted front bumper and rear bumper repaint. Huge polish/compound issues from the previous body shop which left a lot of work getting residue out of every gap and edge. Plenty of swirling on the top of all surfaces from a rotary. We stripped off the old silicone based dressing and ensured a proper finish.

This owner had previous issues with another detail shop that had burnt into the clearcoat, happy to say the end result was a great revival! Our next approach for this vehicle will be to deep clean the leather, carpet, and overall interior sanitization.

New Car Opticoat: Silver TESLA MODEL S 85

Vehicle: Tesla Motors – Silver Model S 85

Condition: This fine Tesla Model S 85 was recently delivered in Raleigh, in for new car detail and Opticoat detail. Only issues we encountered were a few deep scratch areas near the rear door and trunk. Plenty of shipping adhesive residue near the doors and front of the hood. We spent some time Q-Tipping the front air dam area due to the bug build up. Claybar revealed the rear and roofline to be the worst areas. This Model S was in great shape, a rarity from most Teslas we’ve done. Interior was thoroughly vacuumed and wipe down with a light cleaner. Front trunk paint and trim cleaned with OptiClean.

BMW ZHP Silver with Wheel Iron Deposit Removal

BMW M5 E60 Metallic Sapphire Black Paint Enhancement

BMW M5 E60 Metallic Sapphire Black Paint Enhancement

VEHICLE TREATMENT:

E60 BMW M5 Sedan black metallic paint polish enhancement treatment. Our approach was to enhance the paint by removing the light and medium defects. This vehicle has 70000 miles and was originally in Virginia. On top of a brutal climate, the vehicle previously had a full body vinyl wrap. Our time was spent mostly removing the glue on every edge besides completing a thorough paint polish. Despite quite a few deep scratches especially on the lower sides and rear bumper, the paint was leveled in high traffic areas and fully polished for high gloss. For the age we’re happy and the pictures show the beast waiting to hit the streets. Glue removal was a test of patience, we went through a complete bottle of Tarminator & Adhesive Remover.

Vehicle Treatment:

BMW 528i Sedan Space Grey New Car Opticoat Treatment. Vehicle was in great condition, clay absolutely necessary to remove the overall dirt within the paint from traveling. Some shipping residue on the wheels, easily polished out. Color tone of this Space Grey was a tiny bit off from what we’re use to. Client requested Opticoat to wheels and OptiGlass, both added with minor preparation. We also discussed putting down some special Leather Master Protection Cream for the Napa leather. Beautiful metallic flake and gloss thanks to Opticoat.
