Pardon the excessive amount of photos.. got a little trigger happy as I haven’t done a black car in some time. There aint’ nothing like a freshly polished black car! A new aggressive F-sport RX450h at that – love the new line of Lexus’s!

Does anyone know where to find a 5 node security socket? I’ve been searching and searching and searching for a socket/bit head that fits Tesla’s security front license plate bolt, but have not had no luck. A 9/16″ 12-pt socket works with a little wiggle, but life would be so much easier if they made key for it, or used a standard bolt. Anyways, in today is Arpan’s new white Model S for the new car prep with Opticoat Pro+. I’ve mentioned this many times before, but I’ll say it again – I love working on Model S’s due to their sleak and smooth lines making it quite easy to polish!

Aside from the multicoat red, the latest shade of blue by Tesla is probably the best looking color available.. especially with a layer of Opticoat Pro! Overall, Nuwan’s new Tesla was in pretty good shape; some very minor swirling that came right off, and just one particular sanding spot left over from the factory.

Ya’learn something new everyday … turns out Volvo has a European delivery program where they will fly you out (and back) with a free hotel stay if you take delivery in Europe. Sure beats the BMW program…! In today is Eric’s new XC90, which has only been in the states for a few weeks, and now protected with Opticoat Pro+. It’s been a while since I been inside a Volvo, but this new XC90’s definitely got some class to it!

In today is “Natasha”, the black beast that made its way all the way 900 miles away from an Arizona dealership. These M2’s are a dime a dozen, and I can see why! It looks great; each dealership only gets one, and the enthusiast market is hot in the bay area! Now looking even better with Opticoat Pro Plus!
