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!

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 th [...]
The best part of owning a vehicle is making it your own! Our customer wanted to add a personal touch to his Mercedes-Benz AMG GTS by powder coating his wheel gloss black with a red (color matched) pinstripe around the wheel face. Along with the wheels, we had the fender vents blacked out to add some more contrast. We had to get rid of the fishbowl! We went with Suntek's line of carbon ceramic film to keep the cabin cool during those hot summer days and it also helps protect the leather interior! Last but not least, we added a custom exhaust system to really make her rumble!

Even thought it doesn't look like it, this slab-sided Continental was one of the smallest sedans you could purchase from Lincoln back in the day. Some notable features on the '63 Continental are the hinged "suicide" doors, retractable vinyl top (trunk-lid is all one piece) and a "tilt-away" steering wheel borrowed from Thunderbird. Please continue reading below to follow the processes we took to make turn this Continental into a beautiful example of automotive history.Now that the initial wash has been completed, it's time to prepare for the polishing process! First we go over the vehicle to assess what issues need to be fixed. Next we used a clay towel to remove any surface contaminants the initial wash didn't remove. As we clayed the car, we found that there was a lot of surface contamination we couldn't see just by looking at the vehicle. Most of the chrome trim had hard water spotting so we had to use some elbow grease to get these out with some metal polish!The convertible top had years of dirt build up from sitting in storage. We thoroughly cleaned it and brought back it's original color! To protect the top for several years to come, we used OptiCoat's Vinyl / Leather ceramic coating. Not only will this preserve it's current [...]
Recently we had this 5th Gen Competition Blue Dodge Viper GT in our facility to receive a New Car Prep, XPEL Ultimate Full Front End Protection and CQuartz Professional Ceramic Paint Coating. Keep in mind, this is a brand new Dodge Viper that was sold by Sean @ Palmer Dodge. We have seen many Vipers come straight from the manufacturer in horrendous condition. A perfect example is the Nardo Grey ACR Viper we recently performed the same services on. This particular one isn't the worst one we have seen but the color helps hide some of the imperfections. After we complete our initial wash, we bring the vehicles into our detail bay to address the condition of the paint.
This Viper had a few imperfections which included; light scratches, holograms and swirls. Our New Car Prep (1-step polish) would suffice! After the car has been fully polished, we then move to our paint protection booth where the XPEL clear bra is installed.
We applied the CQuartz Professional ceramic coating to all painted exterior surfaces and the parts of the car that had XPEL installed. Enjoy the process an [...]
