2017 Audi Q7 (Grey)

No Comments, Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

Very rarely do I get return customers nowadays – I hope it’s not that I do bad work – but it is just the nature of long-lasting coatings. When they do come back, it’s usually because they purchased a new car, or they had something repainted and wanted to get it coated too. I coated Lachlan’s Model S just a little under a year ago, and in today is his new Q7 with the black optics package (looks bad-ass!). This car will spend a lot more time in the outdoors, and Lachlan has had very good rapport with his coated Model S, so it only made sense to get his new Q7 coated as soon as possible!

2017 Chevrolet Volt (Blue)

Your best supporters are your friends and colleagues. In today is Blakes new Chevy Volt. I went to college with Blake years ago, and also worked on his V-dubb that was bought-back by the company a few years ago. He just got himself a new place, passed his professional engineers licensing test, got a new car, and now has Opticoat Pro+ on his new ride. Life couldn’t get any better for this guy!

2017 Tesla Model X (Blue)

Pardon the delayed post; seems Wordpress has been getting hacked lately, and so I had to do some behind the scene security updates. In this past week was Ankur’s new Model X, which unfortunately been rear ended weeks before our appointment. We decided to go ahead and coat the front 2/3 of the car and the inside before more risk is incurred, and for the rear end to get coated after the body shop finishes the work.

Overall, the car was in fair condition, and there were already some unfixable defects by means of polishing from who knows where; few door dings; rockers chipped from what seems like off-roading. Otherwise, the paint was brought back to it’s 90%+ presentable condition prior coating with Opticoat Pro+. Interior got the Optiguard leather + Fabric treatment as well.

2012 BMW M3 (Jet Black)

Gotta love a freshly polished jet black car! It’s been a while since I’ve done a multi-day job; had the opportunity to spread this workload out over 3 days at my leisure. We were able to achieve a ~90% correction using a two step polish and topping the car with Opticoat Pro for many many years of protection.

Trying something new today… that is CS-II Titanium Coating on my girlfriends new Outback. Let me say that the gloss as part of the result of this new coating is unreal! We will slowly begin offering this new coating to the market as alternative options. Also available is CS-II Ceramic, which would be more comparable to OCP/OCP+. We’ve still some testing to do, but our experiences thus far with this company and products have been nothing but superior. Stay tuned…! You may be seeing more and more of this coating in the near future!
