We see many Porsche's come through our facility on a weekly basis. It takes something very unique to catch our attention in the world of Porsche. This Fashion Grey, 911R did just that! Boasting a whopping 500hp and a 6-speed manual gearbox, what is there not to like about this Porsche? This vehicle has been fully protected with paint protection film. I'm sure you're wondering by now what we are doing with this gorgeous piece of automotive machinery here at Shine. We are applying CarPro's newest ceramic paint coating, CQuartz Finest Reserve. This new coating has a longer life expectancy (3-5 years) and a higher gloss finish than its predecessor. Since this vehicle has paint protection film already applied to the entire vehicle, we completed a preliminary wash to get rid of any dirt/debris from driving. Applying the ceramic coating to the clear bra will greatly enhance the glossiness and make the 911R easier to maintain for years to come. The next step in the process is a light polish to get rid of any decontaminates that might be on the paint protection film surface. Once the film has been lightly polished we can proceed with the coating process. CarPro's product c [...]

Have you ever seen a Nardo Grey Dodge Viper ACR? Well look no further! We recently had one visit our facility to get Xpel Ultimate clear bra and Cquartz Finest's newest ceramic paint coating, Reserve, applied to this one of kind ACR. Upon initial inspection outside, the brand new Viper seemed like it would just need our New Car Prep before we began the Xpel and Cquartz Reserve coating process. We were really surprised at what we discovered as soon as we brought it inside. After the initial cleaning process, we brought the Viper inside for further inspection. We discovered that the paint was in very poor condition straight from the plant! This vehicle hasn't been touched by anyone aside from the Viper plant in Michigan and our staff for the initial cleaning process. Let's keep in mind, this is a BRAND NEW (one of one), custom color Viper ordered by the owner. We are simply astonished at the condition of this vehicle when it arrived to us... As you can see in the images below, there are several areas across the entire vehicle that need some attention from our detail staff. The painted hood stripe was prob [...]

One of our most recent customers, has been building this Pontiac GTO for several years now. It has been in and out of multiple shops getting a full rotisserie restoration. Since he has devoted a huge chunk of time and money, into this GTO, he wanted the final piece of the puzzle to be a paint correction and Cquartz ceramic coating to keep the car looking freshly waxed for many years to come. We also recommended getting his new vinyl top coated to give it that rich black look! In order for us to properly gauge what compounds, pads and polishes we need to use to correct the paint, we needed to do a few test spots. We thought a 1-step polish would be sufficient enough but we found a 1.5 step polish was the better option. After the polishing was all completed we moved on to the ceramic coating process! Our customer wanted to keep his freshly built GTO looking "car show" ready at all times! We applied a OptiGuard's Leather and Vinyl coating to the top and Cquartz Finest ceramic paint coating to all painted exterior surfaces. Not only will the vehicle have a "just waxed" look for several years to come but it will also be very easy to maintain throughout the coatings lifespan. The differences between the non-coated top and coated [...

Our customer brought us his brand new, Plum Crazy Purple, Dodge Viper to us wanting to protect his investment. We recommended having the full front covered in Xpel's Ultimate line of paint protection film. This particular clear bra has a self healing property which helps keep your vehicle looking pristine. He wanted to take it a step further and get CQuartz Finest Reserve applied to his brand new Viper. Reserve is CarPro's latest coating technology. It has a life expectancy of 3-5 years and has an even glossier finish than it's predecessor, CQuartz Finest. The entire front end was protected with Xpel Ultimate self healing film and the rocker panels. The hood on Vipers are so large that the pieces have to be installed in 3 pieces! Keep reading to see the entire process involved in making this Viper SHINE! This is the condition of the paint when it arrived to us straight from the dealership showroom floor. There are numerous light scratches found throughout the paint. We took care of these light scratches and swirls while performing our New Car Prep.

Recently we had this gorgeous Avus Blau Metallic BMW M3 in our shop for some Xpel Ultimate clear bra and CQuartz Finest coating application! Our customer wanted to make sure his BMW Individual color will stay looking pristine for years to come. He decided to get the full front end and some high impact areas protected with Xpel Ultimate self-healing film. To top it all off, we applied a CQuartz Finest coating. We previously did the same exact treatment with our shop BMW M4 which is also a BMW Individual color, Laguna Seca Blue Metallic.
Have you ever seen a Mercedes Benz SL55 AMG with a Whipple Supercharger? Well now you have! Our customer brought by his SL55 AMG to us wanting to get it brought back to the condition it was when he first purchased it. The paint was in decent shape but definitely needed some help from our detail department. Follow the transformation on this now beautiful SL55 AMG! The first step we took was washing off the vehicle to get rid of any dirt / debris on the car.

Cayman GTS gets SHINED!

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.
