2017 Chevrolet Volt (Blue)

No Comments, Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

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)

No Comments, Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

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)

No Comments, Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

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!

2017 Tesla Model X (Blue)

It seems that may be Tesla has finally worked out the kinks with the Model X. The past few X’s that I’ve worked on anyway, all had issues with their doors. I originally coated Sujay’s Model S in 2015, which he says is still holding up great. In today is Sujay’s wifes Model X, this time for Opticoat Pro+. Thanks for coming back to me!

Trying out a new coating today, that is CS-II Ceramic, on Stephen’s new Golf Wagon. To be honest I did not know such a car existed, but I’m a fan. Sleek, smooth, and now extra crispy white and protected for years with CS-II Ceramic!

2016 Tesla Model S (Blue)

No Comments, Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

It’s amazing how quickly contaminates bake onto unprotected surfaces. In today is Abhijit’s month old Model S which hasn’t been washed since delivery. Though the paint was in great condition as it’s never been washed prior, there was a bit of contaminants on the surface that required a good decontamination before any presswork began. It’s looking real proper now, though!

You know what they say… Black looks best! In today is Wez’s new 90D, which hasn’t been washed since he bought it nearly half a year ago. The surface had some contaminants which was taken care of with CarPro’s new Polyshave pad. Clay pads work great particularly when you’re going to polish the car anyway.. def a huge time saver! Opticoat Pro+ was applied on all exterior painted surfaces and chrome ; which when it comes to the facelift Model S ; is practically the entire car.

2016 Tesla Model S (Red)

No Comments, Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

Nothin’ like a freshly polished red Model S…! 8 more to go and I’ll break 100 Tesla’s to have crossed paths with me! In today is Yang’s tail end of 2015, pre-facelift Model S ; which to be honest, I like the way these older front ends look more. Since his car lives in the outdoors 99% of the time, we opted to go with the superior option of Opticoat Pro+ for the added gloss and protection.

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!
