There hasn’t been a new color option by Tesla that disappointed yet. In today is Justin’s new Metallic Black Model S, which color reminds me of BMW’s Sapphire Black. The car is only about 3 months old, but there were quite a few swirls. After over half a day behind the wheel, the paint was restored to its 85-90%+ perfect condition prior to coating with Opticoat Pro+. The interior seats got Optiguard Leather for many years of protection.

Much delayed post — been super busy with the full time lately, and am also in the middle of relocating. Apologies to anyone who has been trying to get in contact with me… slowly getting to that unread email’s ticker… Apologies for the delayed post, Richard! Nothing unordinary with this one – another glossified Model S!

It almost feels a bit weird to get back to work after going on a 2-3 week hiatus (had a free trip to Australia!). In today is Greg’s week old model S. The hood needed a little more work, but the rest of the car was as fresh as I expected for a new car. I’m diggin’ the rear end facelift of the new 2015’s … recessed reverse light trim, and the TESLA letters actually pop out of the chrome trim. Opticoat Pro+ was applied for many many many many many years of protection of his new toy.

Coming down all the way from Sacramento today is one of my old college friends, Blake, who purchased his Jetta a little over a year ago. Friends and family have always been my greatest supporters, and Blake is surely one of them. Happy to see that you’re doing well!

Always a pleasure working with those who plan an Opticoat Pro appointment ahead of their delivery date. It makes the installers life much easier, while also ensuring that their car is in immaculate shape prior to coating. Thanks Ade!

The dark, original blue is still one of my favorite colors of the Model S. It’s dark enough where it looks black in the shade, light enough to look grey in the light, giving the color a good balance for all personalities. Tim’s Model S lives in the outdoors and hasn’t been getting washed as frequently as it should. With Opticoat Pro+, his car should remain cleaner longer, while also making the car much easier to clean as well. Thanks Tim!

Once in a while we drop the ball and forget to do something. On John’s Model S, it was Optiglass Pro, something that I sort of stopped offering since I was getting complaints about squeeking. Luckily I was working with a very easy going dude, who is allowing me to come to his work to apply the Optiglass next month. We’re not expecting any rain in the next few weeks anyway!

Tesla finally replaced those flimsy roof rack flaps on the roof! The new ones seem to be much sturdier and discreet compared to the old design.. however I do feel that the Model S is due for a facelift… but I suppose if the demand is still there, why change it? In today is Brad and his wife’s new Model S, in for the best possible protection; Opticoat Pro+. Welcome to California!

OH- and I finally figured out the “AV” mode on the camera makes pictures much better in intense light situations…….. . It only took nearly 2 years to figure that one out. #amateurphotographer.

The more I use Opticoat Pro+, but more I love it. I’ve been slowly phasing out of offering regular Pro and sticking strictly to Pro+; it’s that much better! It’s always nice to have owners do their research before even coming in; Jason knew exactly what he wanted for his new beast of a machine; Opticoat Pro+.

What’s best about having a backlog of cars is that there will always be someone who is flexible and will take any last minute spots that open up. Originally had a M3 scheduled for today, but is getting pushed back due to some issues post-delivery. No problems with this Grey Model S though, except there possibly being 10x more eyes staring at it from being HELLA WET with that Opticoat Pro Plus!!!

The best part of this website is it’s more of a blog than anything else. Does anyone even read these things?
