After almost 3 months of the much anticipated arrival of Frank’s new MDX, he finally took delivery yesterday. It came straight to me the following morning (today) for an Opticoat Pro treatment. An Xpel Ultimate installation will follow in a few days, providing his new car with supreme protection for the years to come. Overall, the car was in great shape aside from a few very minor defects. It was polished away using Scholl Concepts S40, and the surface prepped with Optimum Primer prior to coating. All these car companies are doing wild things with LED’s in their headlights, but the multi-projector in the new Acura’s really set them apart from the rest! I love it!
The grey Model S population is taking over! Andrews 4 day old model S got the Opticoat Pro treatment today. Regardless of condition, I always recommend at least a single step polish prior to coating as there’s always minor defects here or there out of the factory. I went with the same process I did on the last two grey MS’s as they yielded fabulous results, and the outcome of Andrews MS was no different! Enjoy
The recent daylight savings has really got me racing against time! I use to have plenty of time to finish before sundown if I start by 8am. I started Brant’s today at 8 today, and by the time I finished, the sun had practically set completely! His Model S got a similar treatment to the grey MS I did two weeks ago. I swear I’m falling in love with the TMS a little more each time I work on one.
For a while I Tesla Grey Metallic was probably my least favorite color… that is, until I saw Jeddi’s loaded grey TM! The contrast from the wheels, tint and the dry carbon fiber spoiler make a tremendous difference in the way the car looks. Way more aggressive! Jeddi’s Model S got the Opticoat Pro treatment today. Optimum started sending out a ‘primer’ to be used prior to coating, which offers very minor polishing properties when paired with certain pads, while acting as an catalyst for a stronger bond for Opticoat. I decided to go with a over-medium single step polish today; Scholl Concepts S17+ as the car had some light swirls going on. Optimum primer followed that, and finally topped with Opticoat Pro. Enjoy!
Here’s Dave’s P85+ in Blue Metallic! Dave utilizes proper wash technique, leaving the car in quite spectacular condition. There were some light marring going on in certain areas, but nothing a little Optimum Hyper Polish couldn’t handle. The exterior, including the wheel faces, got coated with Opticoat Pro, and the glass treated with glass sealant.
