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!

…really diggin’ the new grey more than the predecessors. In today is Mike’s week old Model S that already racked up 700 miles. Aside from a little bit of marring from some wandering hands here and there, the paint was virtually flawless. Now with Opticoat Pro, the brilliant shine should stay that way for many years to come.

Is it me or does it seem like most of the Model S colors changed a bit (brighter)? In today is Anna’s new Multicoat red Model S, which is only a few weeks old. It got a the royal treatment with Opticoat Pro+!

Friends and family have always been super supportive of my endeavors. Alison picked up her new RX450h a little over a month ago, and while it came in quite dirty from not being washed since delivery, the paint was in great condition. Paint was primer polished, Opticoat Pro’d, and topped with Glosscoat.

Gotta love those who plan ahead and schedule their vehicles to be dropped off soon after delivery. In today is Brett’s day old Model S in grey with pano roof.. no before pictures as the car was pretty dang fresh, ’twas overcast out in the morning, and defects were few. Regardless, a primer polish is done to remove any minor imperfections and to really bring out the gloss prior to coating. Thanks for the referral Will!
