Toyota Supra – CQuartz Professional

Four words….Toyota…….Supra…….all original. I wasn’t even sure those words went together anymore!! But they do! The owner of this beautiful 40K mile, totally stock Supra approached me to bring some life back into the all original finish. After going over options with the customer; a plan of attack was put together to breathe some life back into the finish and protect it for years to come. Our process:

  • Wash & 2 step paint decontamination
  • Wheels/wells/tires deep cleaned
  • Quick engine degrease
  • Careful paint measurements were taken all around the vehicle and low spots marked
  • Two step paint correction. We had to be more careful around some areas due to the amount of clear coat on the surface.
  • Faded trim hand polished to bring back some luster
  • Wheel faces & front grille areas coated with CQuartz Dlux via airbrush
  • 2 coats of CQuartz Professional applied to paint & lights then IR cured
  • Wells & tires protected
  • Thorough vacuum and quick wipe down of interior
  • Leather seats protected

Here are a few before and after shots of the paint correction. There were unfortunately some random deep scratches that we were not able to fully remove due to the depth and amount of clear available to work with:

Red, Red Wine – Vinyl Wrapped Maserati

We recently had this gorgeous Maserati in for some enhancement and detailing. The owner had some issues arise with water spotting from leaking pipes in his home`s parking deck.  Because this car is vinyl wrapped and the color is also not made anymore; he was careful to research detailing companies before making the right decision to come to us.  After a meet and greet with the customer and a consultation regarding the car; a plan of action was made in order to not only remedy the water spot issue; but enhance the car overall.

Process:

– Thorough wash and decontamination
– Water spot removal from affected vinyl wrapped areas
– Wheel/well/tire deep cleaning
– Carbon fiber spoiler and side valences polished
– Rearview mirrors and door handles were rewrapped to match the carbon fiber spoiler
– Signature nano ceramic coating applied to vinyl wrap, carbon fiber spoiler, and lower painted valences
– Wheel faces ceramic coated and IR cured
– Through interior detail

A few in progress shots:

Reporting for Duty – Jeep Wrangler

There is a constant line that I like to use…”It`s never too late to show some love to your ride.” This definitely rings true for this 15 year old Jeep. The owner began restoring  and customizing it in 2000 and it has since taken on quite a different form from factory. We have previously paint corrected and applied our signature nano ceramic coating to the owners other two vehicles. After seeing how easy it is to maintain them and how good they look; he opted to have his daily beater done as well.

Process:

– Thorough wash and 2 step paint decontamiantion
– All undercarriage foam washed and degreased
– Application of  Opti Coat Pro to all painted surfaces
– Application of CQuartz Dlux to all black trim including fender flares, bumpers, wheel faces, light surrounds, etc.
– Application of CQuartz Dlux via airbrush to all suspension components and wheel wells
– Glass sealed
– Tires shined

The paint now has a nice sheen to it, is protected, and maintaining this beast will be a piece of cake for years to come. Looking to protect your investment? We offer a ride range of options for you . Contact us today for a free consultation.

Special Edition Challenger – Making Her Pretty Again

From what I am told, this Challenger is called a Track Hawk edition. It was built when Hellcats were first released because of the high demand but low supply. This car is a bit different beast however. It is optimized for curvy roads, not just straight lines. This car was in need of some major attention however. After a botched dealership detail and some run ins with sprinklers; her finish was very dull and full of scratches. The trim was also fading already. After over 32+ man hours; she looks way better!!!

Services performed;

  • Wash & paint decontamination
  • Wheel/well/tire deep cleaning
  • 2 step polish on wheel barrels
  • Some spot wet sanding and touch up work
  • 2 step paint correction
  • Plasti dip removal from gas cap & tail lights
  • CQUartz Dlux applied to all trim to restore finish and protect
  • CQuartz Professional applied to painted surfaces & vinyl wrapped hood

Here she is all foamed up:

Before condition of the paint (Note the dullness above the light as well as the severe swirling):

Much better. While not perfect, a huge improvement!
