Have you ever seen a 800hp C7 Corvette from the factory? Well look no further! We had the opportunity to apply some of our services on this brand new #01 of 50 C7 Grand Sport. Our customer just bought this vehicle and wanted to protect his investment. We decided to perform our New Car Prep, Xpel clear bra and window tint. The New Car Prep was recommended to remove any swirls/scratches, decontaminate the paint and help bring a deep gloss out of the factory black paint. Since we just polished the paint, Xpel Ultimate Self Healing clear bra was applied to the front end of the vehicle to protect it from any rock chips or road debris. Lastly, we couldn't have our customer fish bowlin' around town so we add some Suntek Carbon window film!

A long time customer of ours recently brought his Yamaha R1 to us. He wanted to have his bike tidied up and maintained. This R1 isn’t your everyday run of the mill sports bike, it has a matte paint finish, carbon fiber accessories, meaty rear tire and many other characteristics that sets it apart from the crowd. We had to be very careful with the matte paint to make sure it was properly cleaned. Every nook and cranny of this bike was touched by our detail team.

Our customer purchased a 16′ Porsche Cayman GTS wanting to protect and keep his new car looking just like it did when he drove it off of the showroom floor. We recommended going with XPEL Ultimate self healing paint protection film on the front end to protect the car from the everyday hazards of driving. To keep the car looking like it did the day he purchased it, we applied CQuartz Finest ceramic paint coating to the entire car. He also wanted to make a few changes to the Cayman that we were more than happy to do for him! These changes included window tint, Rennline mesh grill kit and AWE Tuning wind deflectors.
Take a look at the final product. This Cayman GTS will stay looking like this for years to come!
Our customer brought his brand new Alfa Romeo 4C to us for a number of services he wanted completed. First on the list, was to remove the already yellowing paint protection film that was previously installed on the vehicle. This is a common issue with lower quality film.
Now that the old paint protection film has been removed, we began the process for our New Car Prep. This step is necessary for all vehicles that receive a ceramic paint coating from us. This process decontaminates the paint surface while simultaneously removing swirl marks, bringing the paint to a high gloss finish and creating a smooth surface for the coating to adhere to.
Our customer brought his recently purchased, 95′ Porsche 993 Cabriolet, into our facility wanting us to bring it back to its highest level of conditions.

We added a CQuartz Finest paint coating, replaced the rear wheel impact areas with fresh XPEL Ultimate film and conditioned his leather interior. Let us show you how we turned this tarnished 993 into a brilliant masterpiece!
