Friends and family have always been my biggest supporters. Charlie “Chalo” is back with his new baby after getting rid of his M5 that I worked on almost two years ago. You don’t see these things around everyday, and you sure as heck won’t see one of these as shiny as Charlie’s new RS5 around anytime soon either! This thing sounds as mean as it looks!

Woops – Accidently deleted the post and am too lazy to rewrite the blurb.

It’s always nice working with people with flexible schedules as my time is quite limited nowadays. I try to accommodate as many people as possible with my full-time schedule, while also allowing some time-off for myself as well. Lately, I’ve been doing 1-2 cars a week, 3 on rare occassions. In today is Rick’s 1000 mi old Model S, in for the best possible protection of course; Opticoat Pro+.

For a paint code name Suzuka Gray, the car is not very gray. In today is Jonathan’s TTRS, to which I really think Audi should’ve just called it the R8-mini. Carbon fiber accents are everywhere, crazy looking rotors, 20″ wheels on the small coupe, great sounding 5-cylinder engine, and now wearing Opticoat Pro+. Cleaning this garage queen should be even easier now!

The new Titanium Metallic has got to be one of the best looking auto paint colors ever made. Slightly grey, slightly bronze, slightly silver, and slightly chrome depending on the angle of which you look at it. It is very unique yet subtle enough to not make the car stand out too much when driving around. In today is Michael’s Model S straight from the factory with very few defects. However the paint felt rather grainy- not sure where Tesla has been storing their parts. No biggy though. Car was coated with Opticoat Pro and Optiglass Pro for many years of protection.

It’s always nice to hear people taking their cars and really driving it on road trips – heck I would if I had a Tesla and could practically roam free. Mario’s Model S is just a few months old, but has had quite a few too many “harsh” washes. The paint was in rather rough condition, and the goal of today was to enhance the look with a single step (did a little extra here and there in trouble areas) and giving the car the ultimate protection. This Model S should be one of the most well protected cars on the road heading up towards Washington in a few weeks! Thanks again Mario – have a safe and fun trip!

Have and always have loved the BMW’s space grey paint. In today is Diishan’s 650i that gets washed religiously from a place in Oakland. He heard word of a life-changing coating called Opticoat Pro from one of his coworkers and had to get it on his toy. Aside from a few nicks, the car was in great shape. Opticoat Pro will surely provide the shine and protection on his car for the next 5+ years.

It’s always nice to see girls driving manual transmissions, let alone one who cares for her car! Kait’s ~year old BRZ had a few scratches here or there, and some holograms from the new-car delivery detail, but otherwise a good candidate for the Opticoat Pro treatment. In the interest of the vehicle’s well-being, I decided to top the OCP with glosscoat for even superior shine and protection. Thanks K!

Nancy’s forester was one that I worked on a little over half a year ago. Last month, she was lucky enough to pick a parking spot right under a grease line that decided to explode all over her car. Out of necessity, she brought the car to the nearest detail shop who insisted on claying the car… what good a clay does for removing grease beats me. The car ended up getting marr’d up from the clay. We went with a mild combo on this one to remove the marring from the Opticoat Pro’d car, and then topped it with Glosscoat.

Sudakaran’s Model S is a little over half a year old, and while not in terrible shape, it had a much needed polish prior to coating. The single step hyper polish was able to achieve a ~80-90% correction, achieving a high gloss finish that looks better than 99% of the cars on the road already. Thanks for the referral Subu!
