This 507 was booked in months in advance without me getting a chance to see the condition. In the end it needed a 2 stage polish with special attention on certain areas with the claybar. It was protected with Opti Coat Pro and we were happy with the results. I love the wheels too by the way, my favorite choice out of all the options for the C63.




Arrival




Claybar


Measuring the paint


Rubber trim masked off




Before 1st stage


After 1st stage





Cleaning out polish residue out of the clear bra edge





Opti Coat Primer first


Then Opti Coat Pro next





And finally the finished pics just before sunset

Met this customer through Facebook and admired his photography for quite sometime. Was quite surprised to receive a message from him interested in our work. Long story short, into the shop in came.

Very impressed with the initial condition of the paint and found it only needed a 1 stage polish which was protected afterwards with Opti Coat Pro.



Arrival




Rubber and plastic trim all masked up




Measuring the paint




Before


After




Opti Coat Pro about it be applied




Double checking our work with a light that omits the same color as the sun


No swirls




And the finished product

This new M4 came to us in pretty good condition straight from the dealer. Other then a few light swirls that the camera couldn't pick up the paint was in great shape. Not much else to say other then enjoy the pics!



As usual the arrival pics




Paint measurements




Masking off the rubber trim




Applied Opti Coat Primer via machine






After removing the tape etc we cleaned out some polish residue with our trusty tooth pick




Opti Coat Pro




Double checking our work with a light that emits the same color light as the sun


Perfect




And finally the fruits of our labour

This was totally a coincidence that two e39 M5s came in for a 2 stage polish + Opti Coat Pro. They had both booked on the same day so I ended up doing the write up on both cars at the same time which is a first and was quite interesting to do. I was very happy with the out come on both cars as were the owners so enjoy seeing the process and final pics!



Arrival (you should have seen both owners' faces lol)




Masking off the rubber trim after the wash and clay




Taking paint measurements






Before


After


50/50 shot




Opti Coat Pro


Application






And the finished pics
















I hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed working on my favorite generation M5!

A long time customer recently purchased this new 4 GTS from Pfaff and wanted to get the paint protected asap. Well after 1000km in it finally came.

I must say this is one of the most beautifulest 991s we have done this year and we had a great time working on it and admiring all the little details put together on this 4 GTS.

Paint wasn't in bad shape so just a quick 1 stage polish and then protected with Opti Coat Pro.

Enjoy!

Definitely looking forward to maintaining this one over the years!

We had spoken to this client a few weeks prior to this detail and he had actually referred a Bentley to us earlier in the spring.

The car was fairly new and well taken care of so the paint was not in bad shape at all. A 1 stage polish was all that was needed to clean up the light swirls which then was protected with Opti Coat Pro afterwards.



Arrival




Claybarring the paint


Taking measurements


Masking up the plastic and rubber trim




Then on to polishing the paint

Hope you liked the pics on this track monster!

I had talked to this client for quite sometime now regarding his other vehicles like an e39 M5(which was sold) and an e30 M3. We had never gotten a chance to book a solid date but stayed in contact over the years. He had recently purchased this new Sprint Blue RS4 and was planning to drive it year round and wanted to protect it with Opti Coat Pro. The car was brought in for a consultation and we finally booked a date!



Arrival




After cleaning the wheels and a car wash we claybarred the paint


Took some paint measurements




And finally we started with the 1st stage of polishing

Before


After


A 50/50 shot


The metallic flake in the Sprint Blue started to really POP again!




We also polished the headlights and taillights

Before


After




After all the polishing Opti Coat Primer was applied




Unmasking


Then cleaning all the little details like removing polish from the edge of the stone guard




Then finally Opti Coat Pro is applied




And here are the afters








Always a pleasure to work on an RS and glad we could bring this Sprint Blue back to life!

We had been looking forward to this Lava Orange 991 GT3RS for quite sometime. We maintain this clients other RS's as well so we knew about this one for almost a year now.

Not really much else to say, got the call Saturday evening and it was in the shop by Wednesday



Arrival




Cleaning the wheels


Masking off the rubber and plastic trim




The whole front end is carbon fibre so we had to bring out our ultrasound paint gauge to measure the paint

Underneath the hood


Ultrasound measurements


Magnetic measurements




And on to polishing the paint.

There was already close to 5000km on the odometer so the paint had some light swirls to polish out before applying Opti Coat Pro.

Before


After


Before


After


The taillights were polished as well

Before


After




After the 2nd stage of polishing was completed we applied Opti Coat Primer via machine to the paint






We unmasked the trim and took care of some finishing touches like cleaning up the polishing dust and cleaning polish from the edge of the stone guard with a tooth pick




And finally applied Opti Coat Pro




Overcast day so the gloss was not photographing the best it could be, but still happy with the finished pics!










And the icing on the cake.... an autograph under the hood from Wolfgang Porsche!!!


Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as we enjoyed working on the car!

Thanks!
