2015 Scion FRS (Asphalt)

No Comments, Detailing Samples, by Johnny.

Always great to work with flexible people – I was suppose to knock this one out mid last week, but ended up catching some kind of flu. I ended up squeezing him right in for a few hours at the end of my labor day, and a few hours into the next night. A new car prep with Opticoat Pro was on the menu ; a decon, light polish followed by primer polish to prep for OCP for a proper bond. Didn’t take very many pictures as the entire process took place inside the garage both nights.

Ya’ learn something new everyday! Apparently Scion came out with their own version of their “Limited” FT86 called the monogram series. It comes with a number of additions including the smart key, alacantara accents on the inside, the sleek spoiler that closely resembles the BRZ one, and other little gadgets/lighting. Aside from some mild water marks, Thomas’s new FRS was in pretty good shape. I proceeded with a process similar to the 228i done yesterday. This thing is shinin’!

2013 Scion FRS (Firestorm)

It’s usually a rare occasion when I have to pull out the ole’ wool pad. It’s even more rare when I have to pull out something so aggressive on such a new car. Alex’s 900 mile old FRS came in today for what was suppose to be a quick new car prep with a single step polish & opticoat pro. Upon moving it in to the lights, I discovered that the car was covered in swirls. A quick call was made to the owner, and the decision to step it up a notch was a fast one. My work time instantly shot up by about 3-4 hours, but was well worth it in the end. A few RIDS still remain, but the difference is substantial and I would say very acceptable for a daily driven car. The entire car got sprayed with Opticoat Pro, including the wheel barrels. Welcome to California, Alex!

Sometimes it puzzles me how such new cars can be in such conditions. The paint was rough and had a much needed decontamination, and the car itself was covered in water spots. Nanoskin’s Autoscrub got the to the sleek, smooth state the paint should be in, but it did mar the soft firestorm coat a bit. Regardless, I needed to polish the car anyway due to the watermarks. The car was polished using Adam’s Swirl & Haze, finished with Optimum Primer, and coated with Opticoat Pro. Enjoy!

2013 Scion FRS (Firestorm)

Battle of the FT86’s! Got to have both the Scion and Subaru FT86 together next to each other to really compare the differences between the two. Traveling all the way from Lemoore, Gian’s FRS got a single step polish to bring it to a ~80-85% level prior to Opticoat Pro. As expected, he brought along a plentiful of bugs on the way here. Gian stuck around and debadged his own car to make room for future mods while I polished the rest of it.
