2014 Nissan GTR BE CQuartz Finest & Xpel PPF

Customer brought us his GTR that was in need one some serious TLC. This GTR had a PPF Kit done by another shop that was nothing short of horrendous. Customer wanted the old kit stripped off and the full front end done. On top of the PPF work, the customer wanted to have our Full Detail Package done to clean up the holograms induced by previous detailers and to remove a good percentage of the scratches. Once done, the customer really wanted to have great protection to the rest of the paint. Customer decided to go with our CQuartz Finest coating. This really make the black paint look wet while allowing the flake to really pop in the paint.

Below shows how the original PPF was done by another shop. Film did not go anywhere close to the edges and left many exposed areas. Even have very large patch pieces that easily showed from 5 feet away from the vehicle.

Once the GTR was washed and decontaminated, we got a clear view of the paint and the amount of defects. GTR showed a good number of scratches and holograms from previous washing and detailers.

Now that we knew what we would be working with. We stripped the old PPF off the car and got to work. After spending 18 hours with the vehicle, between detailing, coating and applying the new Xpel Film; there was a substantial difference. The CQuartz Finest Coating really made the black have that deep wet look. All the flake now popped in the sun and the car looked extremely glossy.
