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:

Beautiful new Z06 in for a special car coating treatment. After a safe rinseless optimum wash, claybar treatment revealed minor embedded dirt as well as minor adhesive residue leftover. I did find some minor marks, most near the door handles and the rear spoiler. Paint & wheels were polished with Optimum hyper polish blue, then thorough wipe down inspection. Gloss Coat was applied on day one. Our luck is awesome, it was raining on day two for the final checks and trim protection treatments. Beautiful silver with metallic spectra grey wheels. Beware the shiny beast!

New Car Coating: BMW M4 Black Sapphire

New Car Coating: BMW M4 Black Sapphire

VEHICLE INFORMATION:

A beautiful beast of a car:BMW M4 Black Sapphire Black on Black! We had our hands full, so early morning commute and treatment to this beauty. Not too many issues for a black vehicle, but we definitely had to spot level a few areas. Final notes:

  • Hyper Polish, then M205 with MF Finishing Disc to remedy deep rids from the factory
  • Hand polish all the intricate curves and paint groves
  • Optimum Opti Coat All Paint.
  • Interior wipedown & dressing removal from sides of door. Ugly dealership dressings are bad1

Vehicle was in great shape, just needed a thorough cleaning and coating. We set this client up with proper wash tools and the finest Korean microfibers!

2015 Porsche Macan Detail “Frankenstein” Combo

This beautiful 2015 Porsche Macan was given the ultimate vehicle protection. Started off with a high foam wash to remove all the light dirt and remove any polish residue. IronX & Decontamination stage revealed no significant issues to the paint. Paint preparation portion of the detail involved quite sometime polishing, thankfully heat and overall conditions were great. We did find 1 area near the driver front fender where a polisher was incorrectly used. Final Coating/Treatments that we chose our “Frankenstein” Combo:

Humidity & heat really accelerated the curing/air phase of the detail. We chose Leather Master Protection Cream & Optimum Protectant Plus as neutral safe protection versus any coatings that could inhibit normal contamination progression.
