The demand for the GT3RS continues to grow as individuals are having to wait, several months to a couple of years, to get their hands on one of Porsche’s most sought after machines. Our customer took delivery of his Ultraviolet Purple GT3RS and immediately brought it to us to protect his investment. He wanted to get the entire vehicle protected with XPEL Ultimate self healing paint protection film. We covered every inch of the vehicle with XPEL! Continue reading to see the process and final outcome of this beautiful example of automotive machinery.
Every vehicle gets an initial wash to remove any surface debris so we can properly identify and address any imperfections on the paints surface. Most people think that their new vehicle will arrive to them in near perfect condition. It’s not very often we see a vehicle arrive to our facility from the dealer in near perfect condition. That’s where we step in!
After the initial wash, we can see the imperfections on the paint surface. Minor swirls and scratches are scattered across the entire vehicle. Since this GT3RS is getting full body XPEL coverage, we needed to fully polish the vehicle before any film is applied to get rid of all the imperfections.
Bye bye swirls and scratches! Since this Porsche had so many decals, we needed to mask off these to make sure no wax residue built up along the edges and this also prevented any damage to the decals.
Now it’s time to start the application process of the XPEL film! We thoroughly cleaned the vehicle again after the polishing process to make sure no stray compound can get underneath the film. Each panel is thoroughly cleaned with a alcohol based solution before we apply the XPEL Ultimate film. The hardest part of this vehicle to apply was each rear fender section. This piece spans across the entire a-pillar, rear fender and lower rocker panel area.
Once the XPEL film was applied, we brought the GT3RS back into our detail area and began the prep for CQuartz Finest Reserve! CQuartz Finest Reserve is the newest ceramic coating on the market. This particular coating will last 3 – 5 years compared to CQuartz Professional which last 2 – 3 years. Not only does it have a longer life expectancy, Reserve adds more gloss and depth to your vehicles paint.
"Shine performed an exceptional paint correction on my Viper. I will absolutely use them again for any future vehicles."Michael McGowin
Let me start by saying I am an EXTREMELY meticulous individual. I was a bit nervous turning my brand new 2015 C7 Z06 over to the guys at Shine, but the finished product exceeded my expectations.Ron Mowen
After owning my car for a couple years the paint and Xpel needed to be thoroughly detailed. This was not something that I was up to tackling as it's time consuming and hard to perfect. After seeing Shine Auto at a few racing events, I decided to give them a shot. If they can handle $200k+ cars, then mine shouldn't be a challenge.
Well I'm pleased to say that the car and attention to detail is beyond what I expected. The car was handed over looking better than new inside the showroom. After looking over the car, I was able to pick the brain of their detailer who was able to recommend the best way to maintain the car going forward. That to me is priceless and worth the cost alone. I will repeat and recommend this shop to anyone wanting to maintain the look of their car.Chris Humeniuk
I recently was looking for a new shop in the Atlanta area to work on my cars. I am very picky when it comes to my vehicles and I wanted a shop I could trust. I got a recommendation from a friend to check out Shine Auto. I met with one of the owners (Mike) and discussed my options. They were very thorough and took their time explaining all of the possibilities. I had them put the clear bra and Cc Quartz package on my Viper. They did such a great job that I brought my Hellcat to them for the same work. Overall I couldn't be happier with the results... I would highly recommend their services ! William Chopti
I brought my brand new ride to these guys straight from delivery and they made a brand new ride look even better! They installed a clear bra protection film, tinted my windows and applied a complete nano coating treatment! Now my Tesla stays show room new with such little effort and maintenance! Great group of guys with attention to detail!Win Fitz
Shine Auto Salon answered my message promptly with excellent customer service. They were able to wash and wax my e90 BMW thoroughly and suggested modifications that were in my range. I would definitely recommend Shine for your cosmetic and performance services!Brianda Traylor
My Dad recently bought a used Corvette. This has been his dream for as long as I can remember. It wasn't perfect, but he was in love. I wanted to surprise him with a detail service somewhere. I live out of state, so I reached out to some friends that live by him. Shine Auto was highly recommended, so I reached out. They made it super easy for me to surprise my Dad with a full detail, and they even corrected the issues that the cars paint had. My Dad said the car probably did not look that good even new. Thanks Mike and Crew!!Nicole Egbert
I have used Shine Auto Salon for a variety of projects across all my vehicles: from a full paint correction and PPF installation, to window tinting and simple wash/wax maintenance in both my Dodge Viper and Mercedes ML350. In all situations, the product exceeded all expectations. My ML350 was brand new when delivered to them, and they made it look even better than when it rolled off the showroom floor. I would recommend Shine Auto for all your detailing needsVijay Swami
It's hard to know who you can trust with your exotic... However, after meeting the owner Dan at a racing event. I just had the feeling that these guys would be top shelf.
I had my 911 taken to them ( by them ) and had a full paint correction done.
I had my apprehensions. How much better can you really make a new car look.... Well to my surprise it came back a whole different vehicle.
Paint correction , clear bra, and a Quartz sealer. It was an amazing transformation.
I know I will send them work again!!
