As a parent myself; I fully understand the sacrifices made by parents everyday more than ever. We make choices and settle for less so that our kids and spouse can have nicer things. Take the owner of this Corvette Stingray for example. He had spent years ensuring his son and wife had better vehicles to drive than him and ensuring they were properly taken care of. After being pushed by his wife, he finally gave in and purchased a car that he truly wanted and could enjoy. But…it was definitely in need of some love.
The owners son, Robert, contacted me wanting to really enhance the look of his fathers Corvette as he knew it was really in need of some attention. We settled on a 2 step paint correction and Opti Coat Pro within their budget to make the exterior look as good as possible as well as protecting the finish and making it easier for the father to care for his baby. Less time cleaning, more time driving!!! Upon arrival; it was apparent this beast was in need of some love. The car came from Maryland and looked as if it had seen every single cheap car wash from there to South Carolina in its short 2 year existence. After setting expectations; we began the process of bringing some beauty out of this beast.
We started with a deep decontamination wash and through wheel cleaning. As you can see in the wheel before picture, it is apparent than it has never really received any proper detailing.
Wheel before…note the dark color of the barrel.
Wheel after. After a thorough cleaning, the wheel face was sealed for easier cleaning as well.
Here are some paint correction before and afters. The vehicle is not perfect as you will see. But we were able to dramatically improve the finish as well as enhance the paints clarity and gloss.

After our paint correction process was complete. We prepared the surface for ceramic coating application and applied Opti Coat Pro for 5 years of warrantied protection. The ceramic coating will enhance the paints finish, provide superior protection to the elements, and make maintenance a breeze.
Its all in the small details! The fender well liners were full of previous wax residue that has pretty much baked into the surface:
We deep cleaned these pieces and then coated them with CQuartz Dlux to enhance the finish as well as make them easier to clean:
The finished product:
Definitely a huge improvement! Now this Corvette looks good while going fast.
