After the 2nd stage of polishing we unmasked the rubber and plastic trim


And cleaned polish residue out of the tight areas




Then finally applied Opti Gloss Coat




And now the finished the pics




And a signature from Chris Green from over at Pfaff, not to sure who the other signature is from.




Hope you enjoyed the pics!

Long time client who previously brought us his w219 CLS 500, purchased this new w218 CLS 63 AMG and brought it in again for a 1 stage polish + Opti Gloss Coat.

Not much to mention about the car itself, the paint wasn't to bad and the 1 stage was enough to bring it up to a 8.5/9 out of 10.

On to the pics.




Arrival




Cleaning the wheels


Claybarring the paint




Quick measurement of the paint

Good friend bought a brand new M4 GTS and we were expecting it since Feb. In it finally came last week for 3 layers of Opti Coat Pro+ but, the paint had a little bit of issues and required a 2 stage polish especially for the lower parts of the doors. Unfortunately due to the colour we couldn't get good before and afters of the results but none the less couldn't have it in the shop and not take pictures!

Anyways on to the write up.




Arrival




Cleaning the wheels and I love the angled wheel woolies for getting that lip behind the face


Two Bucket wash always




After claybarring and drying we took some quick measurements of the paint




As stated earlier we couldn't get good before and afters of the defects so after the polishing Opti Coat Primer was applied via machine


Applied to the carbon wing




3 coats of Opti Coat Pro+ was applied


And it was applied to the paint

Long time no post! Sorry for the delay, very crazy spring and summer and I didn't get the chance to sit in front of the computer until now.

Brand new R8 Spyder which I believe at the time was 1 of 2 in Canada. Very long time client, probably 10 years now so everything was very straight forward. Got the email that this new Spyder was expected and that Opti Coat Pro + was wanted for protection as well as Opti Coat Fabric for the canvas top.

Anyways no more talk, here she is.



Arrival




Claybarring the paint with the Nanoskin Mitt


Measuring the paint




I'm finding with the new Audis being delivered they are coming with some scratches specifically in certain areas and learned they don't have shipping plastics anymore but use a cover that is clipped on which I believe is the cause.

Before


After


Shot of us polishing




Preparing the top for Opti Fabric to protect the canvas top


Opti Coat Pro + about to be applied in 3 layers which is our thickest and shiniest coating


To the paint

Long time client who we have been taking care of for over 7 years now brought in his brand new 991 Carrera GTS. The paint did need a 2 stage polish as there were some deeper swirls on the lower panels that needed to be buffed out before we protected the paint with Opti Gloss Coat. As well as a new service we are offering which was to protect the full front end with Xpel Paint Protection Film.

Anyways on to the pictures.



A little backwards this time with the write up, as the finished picture is the first pic lol


Headlights removed so that we could wrap the film in the edges for a seemless look as well as the film being layed down on the hood.


Full fenders being layed down




Film tucked in the edges and you can see the line here underneath the hood


Then finally everything protected with Opti Gloss Coat




As usual I hope you enjoyed the pics!
