ferrari 458 xpel cquartz ceramic coating
Four Five Eight! We completed a laundry list of our services on our customer's Ferrari 458. First off, we removed the old paint protection film that was on deteriorating on the front bumper and performed a 1-Step Polish to remove any film residue / light swirls and scratches. We added a Full Front End Protection package which includes the full hood, full fenders, headlights, front bumper and side mirrors. After the film was applied, we coated all painted exterior surfaces and on top of the XPEL film. Additionally, we powder coated the wheels matte black to give this Ferrari a more sportier look. While the wheels were off getting coated, we had the tires dismounted and put brand new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on the freshly powder coated wheels. This Ferrari 458 not only has a new look but it's also protected from any future road damage!
hyper blue metallic camaro zl1 xpel ultimate
The best way to protect your brand new vehicle is to not drive it at all, but what fun is that? Another, more feasible, option for you would be to protect the high impact areas with XPEL Ultimate self healing paint protection film. Our customer brought his brand new Hyper Blue Metallic Camaro ZL1 to us all the way from the south Georgia. He had read about paint protection film online but didn't really know the cost or which brand to go with. We ended up installing a Full Front End Protection Package, Rocker Panel Kit and A-Pillar/Partial Roof coverage. By protecting the front end alone, we protected 60-70% of the areas prone to road debris / damage. XPEL Ultimate film also carries a 10-year warranty which made his decision a no brainer!

Aston Martin DB9 cquartz ceramic coating
When you think of a brand that has V12 power, stunning good looks and British craftsmanship, only one vehicle should come to mind. The Aston Martin! Our customer brought his, Titanium Silver Metallic, '08 Aston Martin DB9 in to get a CQuartz Professional Ceramic Paint Coating. The coating will keep his vehicle looking freshly waxed, way easier to clean/maintain and fewer washes throughout his ownership of the vehicle. Continue reading to see the processes we take to preserve the stunning looks of this Aston Martin DB9!After the Aston's paint has been corrected, we can proceed with the coating process. The first step in the coating process is to use a product called CarPro Eraser. Eraser allows us to remove any compound / polish and residue that may have been left over from the paint correction process. Next, we use a special applicator to apply the ceramic coating to all exterior painted surfaces. The coating we used is called CQuartz Professional. This coating has a life span of 2-3 years. We do offer another coating called CQuartz Finest Reserve which will last upwards of 3-5 years!We also ceramic coated the wheels. If you have a uniquely designed wheel or brake pads that create an insane amount of dust, you know how difficult i [..
mercedes benz amg project 1
The Mercedes AMG Project One encompasses many technologies that you can see in Mercedes Benz's Formula 1 cars. This is basically a road legal Formula 1 car! Mercedes-AMG Project One has a top speed of 217+ mph and can accelerate to 124 mph in less than 6 seconds. If these numbers are true, that acceleration would exceed that of the Bugatti Veyron (0-120mph in 7.2 seconds) and the Porsche 918 (0-120mph in 6.7 seconds), while still maintaining air conditioning, two infotainment displays and a dock for your smartphone. The interior also takes styling cues from the F1 cars. Most noticeable features include the steering wheel and seats. We noticed there could potentially be an active spoiler / air brake from some of the release images. With a hefty price tag of $2.72M and 275 being produced, the chances of seeing one of these on the streets are slim to none! Hopefully we can get the change to spot one of these around the Atlanta car scene whenever they finally hit the streets.Key Features: F1 Race Inspired Steering Wheel & Seats 10,000+ RPM Redline 1.6L Hybrid V6 Turbocharged Engine (1000+hp) 217mph Top Speed Only 275 will be produced $2.72M Price Tag Carbon Fiber Body
mercedes benz amg c63s
AMG is the top of the line when it comes to Mercedes-Benz. Almost every AMG is more expensive and the highest performing variant in each Mercedes-Benz class. With a vehicle like this C63S, our customer wanted to take the utmost care and use the best products available to keep his Benz protected. With all of that being said, we applied CQuartz Professional ceramic coating to all exterior painted surfaces, coated the wheels (faces, barrels and brake calipers), coated the leather interior / dash, performed a 1-step paint correction and provided him with his own set of washing supplies to maintain the ceramic coating! Continue reading below to see more of the process and after images of the final outcome.An initial wash is performed before we start on the paint correction. We also used CarPro IronX Snow Soap on the vehicle to open up the paints pores. This helps release any contaminants that may be in the paints surface and help us remove them during the correction process.Brake dust is always a paint to remove when cleaning your wheels. Especially when you have a nice set of wheels like these, Vossen LC105-T's! Some people are concerned about the matte finish [...]
grabber blue shelby gt350 borla ATAK exhaust
There aren't many cars out on the streets these days that sound like a Mustang! Our customer wanted to take his 5.2L Shelby GT350 to the next level by adding a Borla ATAK Exhaust System!Take a peek at what the factory exhaust looks like. The OEM exhaust outlets will still be used with the new Borla ATAK exhaust system.Shelby GT350's come with a valved exhaust system from the factory. The little black box attached to the top of the factory muffler is the valve actuator. It is held on by a couple of screws. We simply took the actuator off of the old muffler and placed them on the new Borla mufflers to retain the functionality of the valves. Even though the muffler outside appearance seems to be the same, its what is on the inside that counts. The Borla muffler features a "straight through" design which allows more air flow. Increased air flow results in a minor horsepower/torque bump!
