Is it yellow or is it orange? It's a little bit of both, it is Yorange! We have seen plenty of 5th gen. Vipers come through our facility this year but none quite as vibrant as this one. Our XPEL Ultimate Full Front End Protection Package, paired with a New Car Prep / CQuartz Finest Reserve ceramic coating is the best way to protect your vehicle against road debris and Mother Nature! Not only did our customer opt for the Full Front End Protection Package, he also wanted his a-pillars / partial roof and rocker panels protected as well.
Before we applied the XPEL, we performed our New Car Prep which is a Stage 1 paint correction that decontaminates the paints surface and gets rid of any imperfections. The paint protection film was then applied.
After all of the film was applied it was time to make this bad boy SHINE! We re-washed the Viper to get rid of the gel we use to apply the XPEL and used a special product called Eraser which gets oils / residues off of the paints surface.
Now that the surface has been properly prepped and protected, we can apply the CQuartz Finest Reserve ceramic coating. Reser [...]
This California T is equipped with the Handling Speciale Package which gives you a stiffer suspension, sportier exhaust tone, transmission timing tweaks and a few appearance styling cues that you can't find on the standard California T.

We performed several detailing services we offer such as our New Car Prep, CQuartz Finest Reserve ceramic paint coating, CQuartz Professional wheel coating and Opti-Guard leather coating. Continue reading below to check out the entire process!Each vehicle is initially washed and clayed before the polishing process begins. After it has been properly prepped, we tape off all trim pieces to avoid polishing residue to be left over. Most of the time we will clean the full interior as well but we waited on this California because it is receiving an interior coating. The coating calls for a deeper cleaning before the coating is applied so we will hold off on that for now.We have a [...]

The entire vehicle had XPEL Ultimate clear bra installed prior to visiting our facility for the coating. We performed a minor polish on all surfaces that would be receiving the coating to remove surface contaminants. This ensures us that the coating will adhere properly.
After the polishing was completed, we used a product called CarPro Eras [...]

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 [...]
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 Sport Classic 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 pro [...]
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!

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. The New Car Prep is a necessary step for any coating application we have. This process gets rid of most light scratches/swirl marks, decontaminates the paint and most of all br [..
"NSX has always provoked an intense reaction. And when it’s driven, the response is unparalleled. This is a car created with and for emotion, engineered to become an extension of its driver with such fidelity, it’s hard to find the line between man and machine." -Acura.Every vehicle that comes in for paint protection film or polishing must receive a preliminary wash to get rid of any dirt and debris that might be on the paints surface. We use only the finest car washing materials and products during this process from CarPro USA! All vehicles receive a proper 2-bucket wash and our dried with plush microfiber drying towels.Our customer wanted to protect his investment!

We covered the full front end, rocker panels, rear wheel impact and a-pillar/partial roof. This Acura NSX came from the factory with some paint protection film already installed on the rocker panels. This pre-installed film tends to yellow very quickly and is usually a lesser quality film. We recommended replacing these with Xpel Ultimate self healing film like the rest of the vehicle was getting.After the Xpel has been installed, we proceeded the n [.
