With TESLA motors right down the street, I see these Model S’s almost on the daily. Today, I got up close and personal with Donald’s Model S, giving it a single step finishing polish and finally coated with Opticoat Pro. Donald has taken meticulous care of the car, and even though he just drove up from Socal, there wasn’t much more than the expected bug splatter on the front end. The Model S is fun and easy car to work with as the lines are slick and smooth, leaving little edges to have to worry about when polishing. I love how how simple and clean the car looks. The R&D Tesla put into this car is above and beyond what I expected. Just. Beautiful.
Today came John’s brand new Audi Q7 that just got picked up yesterday. Only 6.3miles on the odo! If I havn’t mentioned countless times before, Opticoat is probably the best thing to do when you get a new car as it offers not only many years of protection, it also makes it a little harder to scratch, and also makes cleaning much easier. There were many plastic protective adhesive marks left on the car that came off during the polishing stage. Lots of them. There were some more stubborn ones that were treated with Tar-X aided with the steamer. The car was much better than I anticipated, taking roughly 8 hours for the new car prep. However, I almost feel like I owe John for giving me the euphoria that comes with the first-time removal of the protective plastics!
Apologies for any troubles anyone had when trying to get to the website – had a little internal maintenance work! Here’s Chris’s BRZ from this past weekend. Went with the usual, single step polish, decontamination, and topped with Opticoat 2.0 today. There were some marring and swirling going on but a little polishing got them right out and got the paint poppin’ again!
How come most good looking wheels are such a pain to clean!? I love the recessed lip behind the spokes look, but to get behind each and every spoke can be quite a pain to do if you clean your own car. After about a month of waiting, Louis was finally able to bring his new CPO 750i. We originally planned for Opticoat 2.0, but after some thought, we went with the Pro as he parks under sappy trees at work. Overall, it was pretty straight forward. There were a few scratches, but nothing a single step polish wasn’t able to remove. It was apparent that the car never been decontaminated before as the paint was not smooth that was taken care of with the Nanoskin and Iron-X. Enjoy!
You ever have one of those discoveries – where you wonder how you’ve done something for so long – and then to find out you would have been saving time if you did just that little thing extra? Well compressed air is my new best friend when it comes to applying Opticoat. It’s beneficial in every way – the product is leveled out with the air so I don’t have to touch it as much, leaving minimal excess residue to be wiped off. Newton’s S4 got the Opticoat Pro treatment today. Prepped with a decontamination and a single step polish which was able to get rid of a few light scratches on the car all while prepping the surface to be opticoat’d. I hope the Japanese domestic market takes note of what the Euro’s are doing, ’cause all the new Euro’s are looking fantastic!
