2014 Passat GE Urano Grey New Car Coating

New car treatment for this Passat with 1111 miles. LED light checking revealed no obvious flaws, some hood/roof/trunk water etching which we reduced down with a few compounds. Vehicle underwent the usualy decontamination, Optimum Hyper Polish, then coated with an awesome Nano Glass Coating. Bulletproof Coating by CAR Industries. Optimum Protectant Plus on the Interior. We love this coating treatment for the awesome gloss, slickness, and overall protection.

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.
