In all honesty, I had no idea what a Chevy SS was when my neighbor approached me to coat his new car. I have heard it start up every so often though. This thing grumbles, and from what he’s described to me thus far, is an amazingly fun car to drive. Inside the hood of this thing lies a 6.3L engine, secured on a E39 M5 chassis. This thing is a sleeper!

I’ve always liked red cars, particularly reds that blend right in with tail lights. In today is Phil’s new (used) Chevy Volt. For a used car, overall – the car was in pretty good shape. There were a few trouble areas that needed a little more work, but the car came out very nice after a two step polish, and finally topped off with CS-II Titanium. I’ve been slowly pushing this coating more and more lately as I have been quite impressed with the gloss and protection that this coating provides. It also goes on much thicker than the other popular coating that I offer. Check out the pix!

Back again today is Arpan’s white Model S, who was unfortunate to be involved in an accident a few months back. But the good news is that the car kept him safe!

It’s always nice to have friends who support you — I’ve been getting to that age where most of my friends are purchasing new vehicles, and their first thoughts upon purchasing is for me to bless them with a coating. In today is Herman’s kinda-new black Audi Alltrack. Love the way this car looks; rugged but still holding the Audi elegance.

2017 Audi Q7 (Grey)

No Comments, Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

Very rarely do I get return customers nowadays – I hope it’s not that I do bad work – but it is just the nature of long-lasting coatings. When they do come back, it’s usually because they purchased a new car, or they had something repainted and wanted to get it coated too. I coated Lachlan’s Model S just a little under a year ago, and in today is his new Q7 with the black optics package (looks bad-ass!). This car will spend a lot more time in the outdoors, and Lachlan has had very good rapport with his coated Model S, so it only made sense to get his new Q7 coated as soon as possible!
