Steve has got way too many cars! Usually I rarely see return customers due to OCP lasting so long.. and when I do, it’s usually because the they got in an accident, or they got a new car. Steve seems to find his way back to me at least once a year, each time with a new car! What a nice daily to have

It’s been a while since a grey Tesla rolled around. Probably one of the lowest maintenance colors (not that it repels dust, it just hides it better). Certainly a good choice for a daily driver or one who is not as religious about their car washes. Opticoat Pro was applied to this one, which will make maintenance washes that much easier for many years to come!

I really don’t remember the last time I did a silver car? In today is Gil’s new Accord purchased from Roadster. Apparently there’s a way to get a car without going to the dealership..? Brilliant! Aside from a lot of left over and stubborn adhesive from the protective film that typically come on new cars, the paint was in very good condition. The outside got the full Opticoat Pro+ treatment, and the inside with Optiguard Leather and Fabric for years and years of protection. Thanks G!

I take it back, black really does look best. Seldom does an old school classic come around for a full detail and coating, but in today is Veasna’s 560SEL which will be used in his wedding in two weeks, so getting the paint dialed in as good as possible was the goal for today. The car had been repainted before, and at certain areas there wasn’t much paint to really play with, so polishing at all areas where the paint was <2um was kept to a minimal. Nevertheless, the car came out looking much better than I originally hoped for, given that the paint thickness measured from between 2um all the way up to 100um. I was concerned that it would be difficult to get uniform levelness on the paint, but some substantial improvements were made! I'll let the pictures speak for themselves from here.

I say black looks best a lot, but to be honest white just might look better than black, and it comes with “less” maintenance. In today is Ronald’s new Model S. We went for a full debadge with a front license plate removal for a cleaner look. I’ll have to agree that Tesla should’ve just left the badges off!
