Still one of my favorite colors ever, the BMW’s black sapphire ; not too metallic-y, clear coat is not too soft, or too hard, but subtle enough to look pure black at certain angles, and enough flakes to hide any minor imperfections that solid black cars are notorious for showing. I’ve always wanted a black car, but it would drive me crazy to maintain one. With Opticoat Pro+ on Philie’s new family car, surely it’ll make it a much easier task. Thanks again!


It’s been a while since I’ve done an American muscle car, let alone one thats harvests a 6.2L under the hood! To be honest, I didn’t even know such a Camaro existed until Daniel brought his in. This thing SCREAMS! And it was nice to hear that he actually drives it.. at the track! The car wasn’t in the greatest condition coming in, but with the good ole’ Kevin Brown Method, Megs M205, finished off with Opticoat Pro+, this thing will be protected for many many many years of track days!


Rarely do you see return customers when doing coatings… until they purchase new cars! This is Subu’s third car that I’ve done now, this time his wife’s new Model S. Since the car sees the outdoors more often and (may not) get washed as religiously as his own car, we opted for the Pro+ for this one. There were a few trouble spots from the dealer prep, which got addressed individually prior prep for coating.


Thanks for making the trek all the way from Santa Cruz, Kenneth! In today is his new Model S ; quite an upgrade from ole’ caravan. This car sits lives in the wild, and so we opted for the superior coating Opticoat Pro+ for many many years of protection.
