2008 Lexus LS460L (Grey)

No Comments, Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

The nice thing about knowing a trade skill is that you can barter with other trade skill laborers. In exchange for some electrical rewiring work, I gave his car a quick 1.5-step polish and coated with Opticoat Pro for years of protection. 

Pardon the recent hiatus — I was finally able to commit to taking some much needed time off. I’ve been on the grind for the past four years or so and was slowly getting burned out. S. Korea and Japan was amazing; food was delicious, culture was eye-opening, and it overall just a pleasant feeling to be away from home for a few weeks. Anyways, I am back now, and kicking it off with Simon’s new (used) Aston Martin Vantage. This car had probably seen better days, and we made quite an impovement¬†on it with just a two step polish. It was then topped with Opticoat Pro for many years of protection, even though Simon only plans to keep it for a few years if that.

2017 Tesla Model S (White)

From an oldie Nissan Altima to a brand new Tesla Model S! Talk about a dream. I want one.

In today is Rex’s new Model S — this ride gets parked outdoors all the time, so we opted for the longest term, and nearly permanent, protection — Opticoat Pro+. There were already a few scratches and dings on the car, but the goal today was to protect the car for the life of the car, since Rex keeps his cars for a very long time.

This is by far one of the largest painted canvases that I’ve ever worked on. I’d usually say no to a project this big — but how could I, when Brandon referred over 5 people to me, before even ever meeting me. In today is his new pacifica, the mobile that will take his fairly new twins around for many many years. The dealership didn’t provide the best prep on this brand new car, and the car even came with it’s on fair share of scratches already. While there were a handful of scratches that remained (though very feint), we went with a two step polish to get the car looking refined, prior to topping off with Opticoat Pro+ on all painted surfaces. Thanks for everything Brandon!

Thanks for referring your sister, Brandon! In today is Mel’s new GTI, which we prepped and treated with Opticoat Pro+, as well as Optiglass Pro on all windows. Gotta love the look of a freshly polished black car!!
