Is it just me, or did Tesla change their grey’s again? It went from the original Dolphin grey, to something that was lighter, and back to Dolphin grey. This one seems somewhere in between, but I’m not quite sure if it’s just my vision getting worse with age. Anyways, car was fairly new with minimal defects. Went with the usual new car prep. Lookin’ sparkly!

A little change in pace today after doing those two other cars that needed a much more aggressive polishing. In today is Kim’s BEBE for Beautiful Beast – I also learned today that the 85D is an option… I thought it only came in form of P85D! Thanks for the referral, Doug!

Sorry no before pictures on this one; the car was very dirty, but it was also never washed since delivery, so defects were minimal.

It’s always a pleasure working with owners who are willing to leave their cars for a while. It worked out quite well as Tom was leaving for a week or so, allowing me to work on the car a few hours a day, and while also allowing 2-3 days for Opticoat Pro to cure. No before pictures as the car came straight from the Tesla factory with very very few miles.

Black looks best when its freshly detailed and/or washed! … it’s too bad that fresh look typically only lasts 1-3 days. Fortunately, Opticoat Pro will make Jason’s maintenance washes easier, quicker, and safer! The car came in covered in water spots and paint was in fairly rough condition. It was originally supposed to be just a primer polish and application, but I was unhappy with how that finished down, so I stepped it up a bit with a compound before prepping for Opticoat Pro. ‘ts lookin much better now!

It’s always great to work with people who has extensive knowledge of car care. I’m sure Geoff was more than capable of applying a coating himself, but he still brought it to me! Despite being right in the middle of a storm, the weather somehow cooperated and was dry upon drop off and pick up. Now shes’ all ready for the second wave of rain that should hit tomorrow!
