This beautiful Sepang Blue V10 R8 came in early spring but we have been so busy that I haven't had time to post it until now.

Not really much of a back story, got a call inquiring about Opti Coat Pro, client inquired with a few Audi Club members who vouched for our work, then in it came.

Claybarring the paint with the Nanoskin Mitt

And a sun shot to show no more swirls




Hope you enjoyed the pics!

One of the first M2's delivered in the GTA we had done this back in the early spring.

Client informed us that he was expecting delivery and was interested in protecting it right away with Opti Coat Pro. We advised that the dealer not wash the car but remove the plastic to insure no damage underneath. Day of delivery in it came straight from the dealer. Paint wasn't bad at all just some very light swirls that we polished out with a 1 stage polish.

Measuring the paint


Masking off the rubber and plastic trim

Opti Coat Pro about to go on and we applied 2 coats to the paint



And the final results of our work












It was a huge pleasure to work on this M2 and thank you to the owner for choosing us to perform the work. Hope you guys enjoyed the pics!

Had spoken to this client about a previously owned Porsche but things didn't pan out. A year later and and a newly purchased 997 GT3
and we set up a date to get it detailed so the owner could have a fresh start.

Paint wasn't to bad but still wanted to do a 2 stage polish so that it could be as good as possible.



Arrival




Claybarred the paint with a Nanoskin Mitt


Measuring the paint




And on to the polishing

Before


After




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 purchased this 997.2 GT3RS earlier this year and wanted to get it up to standard. I had gone with him to the purchase just to inspect it as well as measure the paint to make sure no panels had been repainted and everything turned out good. A few months later and a couple weeks ago in it came for a full interior, 2 stage polish, engine shampoo, and 2 coats of Opti Coat Pro.



Arrival





Cleaning the wheels


Claybarring the paint


Measuring the paint to look out for any low spots that we shouldn't get to aggressive on




Paint wasn't to rough but it still needed a 2 stage polish to get it to our standard

Before


After


50/50 shot on the carbon wing


Before


After


Taillights were polished as well

Before


After




After the 2nd stage of polishing we unmasked the tape


Cleaned the edges of the stone guard with a tooth pick




After all the finishing prep we finally applied Opti Coat Pro




And finally the finished pics








Always a pleasure to detail client's cars who we have established a good relationship with. Looking forward to more additions to the collection wither it be the family hauler or the weekend car.

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.

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




To the headlights


Tail lights


Face of the wheels


Door jambs


And finally the exhaust




Artsy fartsy shot of the application of Opti Coat Pro+




And the finished pics


Glossy






Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed spending time with this car!

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


Headlights


Taillights


Wheel faces


Doorjambs


Exhaust tips in and out




And the finished pics








Glad to finally be posting again! Hope everyone is doing well!

Thanks,
Wes

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!

Late post but wanted to share two cars we detailed for the 2018 Auto Show this year that you might have seen in the Exotica section beneath the escalator.
