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 [...]

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 [...]
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!

Our customer wanted to protect his investment by choosing to do a full front end coverage with Xpel Ultimate self healing paint protection film.

This minimizes the chance of debris getting onto the film or paints surface during the application process. Each panel is cleaned with alcohol and squeegee'd thoroughly to remove any contaminants or residue that may be on the paint surface.

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!

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.
One of our most customers brought his newly purchased, 16′ BMW M4 Competition, to us wanting to protect its pristine paint finish with Xpel Ultimate self healing film. We recommended getting the full front end protected. Full front end protection includes: Full hood, full fenders, mirrors, front bumper and headlights. XPEL Ultimate’s special clear coat not only prevents the film from discoloring due to contamination and ultra-violet radiation, but also heals itself from swirl marks and light scratches that can occur through ordinary washing and drying or daily driving. You can rest assured that your film and paint will stay looking perfect due to the films mirror smooth finish! Let us show you what we did with our customers M4 Competition!
First we must wash the vehicle to make sure there are no contaminants or debris on the car before we lay the film.
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!
One of our customers wanted to protect his brand new BMW M2 from all of the harsh hazards of everyday driving and the occasional track days. We recommended that he protect the entire front end of his M2. Full front end coverage includes the entire hood, side mirrors, front bumper, fenders, headlights and he also wanted to cover his a-pillars / partial roof. The first step of the installation process is to wash the car and bring it into our dedicated installation bay. This ensures us that no contaminates will get on the film or vehicle during the installation process. Also, during this process we use an alcohol based solvent to get any leftover contaminants off of the paint.
Now that the paint surfaces have been properly prepped and the vehicle is in our installation bay, it is now time to lay the film! A gel is applied to the cars surface to allow [...]
