Our friends at Merit Partners, recently acquired this beautiful '72 Porsche 911S adorned in Light Yellow. With only 72,xxx miles on the clock and a two owner car, it was very well maintained.

dark blue metallic porsche gt3 xpel cquartz
One of our customers wanted to get some old paint protection film removed off of his recently purchased GT3. The film that was installed previously was starting to deteriorate and he wanted it gone. We removed the old film along with all of residue left behind. Up next, we performed a 1.5 - Step Paint Correction to get the paint looking better than the day it rolled off the showroom floor. After the compound/polishing process was completed, we installed our Full Front End Protection Package using XPEL Ultimate's self healing film! Not only did he want to have his vehicle protected from road/track abuse he also wanted to keep it looking freshly detailed and easier to maintain for several years to come. We applied the CQuartz Professional ceramic coating to all painted exterior surfaces, wheel faces, wheel barrels and brake calipers! This coating will last 2-3 years and give his GT3 that "freshly waxed" look every time he steps into his garage to take her for a spin.

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!
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!

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.
