2014 Acura MDX (Dark Cherry Pearl)

Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

Optimum Opti-coat Pro  (Formerly known as Optiguard), a thicker version of Opticoat 2.0, application is the strongest protection available for a vehicle’s clear coat. Unlike waxes and sealants, Opti-Coat Pro is applied once, and lasts for the entire lifespan of the paint. It comes with an optional lifetime warrantly and is truly scratch and swirl resistant. It strengthens the clear-coat by roughly 10x, and is only available to authorized installers by Optimum Car Care. 

After almost 3 months of the much anticipated arrival of Frank’s new MDX, he finally took delivery yesterday. It came straight to me the following morning (today) for an Opticoat Pro treatment. An Xpel Ultimate installation will follow in a few days, providing his new car with supreme protection for the years to come. Overall, the car was in great shape aside from a few very minor defects. It was polished away using Scholl Concepts S40, and the surface prepped with Optimum Primer prior to coating. All these car companies are doing wild things with LED’s in their headlights, but the multi-projector in the new Acura’s really set them apart from the rest! I love it!

Please excuse the lack of sharpness of a few pictures early-on. I realized I was shooting using the wrong setting after a while. Most after pictures taken prior to the finishing touches. Had to race the sunset!
