This client was referred to us by Autolinks as there were a few small imperfections on the hood the customer wanted addressed before applying the PPF.
To be honest I forget what number this was out of the 333 GT Spyders in the world but it was very beautiful none the less. The swirls on this were very light so no before and afters but I hope you still enjoy going through the pics.

This 507 was booked in months in advance without me getting a chance to see the condition. In the end it needed a 2 stage polish with special attention on certain areas with the claybar. It was protected with Opti Coat Pro and we were happy with the results. I love the wheels too by the way, my favorite choice out of all the options for the C63.

Met this customer through Facebook and admired his photography for quite sometime. Was quite surprised to receive a message from him interested in our work. Long story short, into the shop in came.

Very impressed with the initial condition of the paint and found it only needed a 1 stage polish which was protected afterwards with Opti Coat Pro.

This was totally a coincidence that two e39 M5s came in for a 2 stage polish + Opti Coat Pro. They had both booked on the same day so I ended up doing the write up on both cars at the same time which is a first and was quite interesting to do. I was very happy with the out come on both cars as were the owners so enjoy seeing the process and final pics!

A long time customer recently purchased this new 4 GTS from Pfaff and wanted to get the paint protected asap. Well after 1000km in it finally came.

I must say this is one of the most beautifulest 991s we have done this year and we had a great time working on it and admiring all the little details put together on this 4 GTS.

Paint wasn't in bad shape so just a quick 1 stage polish and then protected with Opti Coat Pro.

Enjoy!

This was a US 996 Turbo with very low mileage, to be honest I forget but I'm pretty sure it was around 30000km. Paint wasn't that bad but some of the swirls were a little deeper so a 2 stage polish was needed to correct the paint. As usual with most cars we do nowadays it was protected afterwards with Opti Coat Pro.

Hope you like the pics!

After spending the day with this one I have to say I still like the 996 Turbo and think it's great value for the money! Now I am window shopping for a 996 Turbo S or 996 GT2 hahahaha.

I love this e46 M3! Laguna Seca Blue on Laguna Seca Blue seats and navi! What more could you ask for.

The shine on this M3 was still great but the swirls in the sun was annoying the client and he wanted to get as much of the swirls out as possible. We ended up doing a 2 stage polish which brought the paint condition to about a 9 out of 10 minus the deeper scratches.

Hope you enjoy the pics as much as we enjoyed polishing this one!

I had talked to this client for quite sometime now regarding his other vehicles like an e39 M5(which was sold) and an e30 M3. We had never gotten a chance to book a solid date but stayed in contact over the years. He had recently purchased this new Sprint Blue RS4 and was planning to drive it year round and wanted to protect it with Opti Coat Pro. The car was brought in for a consultation and we finally booked a date!



Arrival




After cleaning the wheels and a car wash we claybarred the paint


Took some paint measurements

We had been looking forward to this Lava Orange 991 GT3RS for quite sometime. We maintain this clients other RS's as well so we knew about this one for almost a year now.

Not really much else to say, got the call Saturday evening and it was in the shop by Wednesday :)



Arrival




Cleaning the wheels


Masking off the rubber and plastic trim




The whole front end is carbon fibre so we had to bring out our ultrasound paint gauge to measure the paint

Underneath the hood


Ultrasound measurements


Magnetic measurements




And on to polishing the paint.

There was already close to 5000km on the odometer so the paint had some light swirls to polish out before applying Opti Coat Pro.

After the 2nd stage of polishing was completed we applied Opti Coat Primer via machine to the paint






We unmasked the trim and took care of some finishing touches like cleaning up the polishing dust and cleaning polish from the edge of the stone guard with a tooth pick




And finally applied Opti Coat Pro




Overcast day so the gloss was not photographing the best it could be, but still happy with the finished pics!










And the icing on the cake.... an autograph under the hood from Wolfgang Porsche!!!


Hope you enjoyed the pics as much as we enjoyed working on the car!

Thanks!

Happy New Year!


We were contacted by this client to detail this rare fire orange M3,1 of 2 I believe in Toronto, for storage. When it came in to the shop and upon inspection we came to the conclusion that it definitely needed a 2 stage polish as the paint was in rough condition. Anyways onto the polishing.



Arrival




Claybarring the paint


Measuring the paint


Masking off the rubber and plastic trim




Finally with all the prep done we started the compounding

It was a huge pleasure to work on this classic R33 Skyline and in Midnight Purple too! We ended up performing a 2 stage polish on the paint and protecting it afterwards with Opti Gloss Coat. Ran into a small complication with the paint being fairly thin in some areas and couldn't get as aggressive as we would like to but everything turned out great regardless.

Hope you enjoy the pics!



Arrival




Cleaning the wheels


2 Bucket car wash


Claybarring the paint with the Nanoskin mitt


Masking off the rubber trim


And measuring the paint. This is one of the lower areas earlier mentioned

After the polishing was completed we cleaned out the left over polish out of the tighter areas with our trusty tooth pick




And finally Opti Gloss Coat is applied

Now for the finished pics








I tried to get a sun shot to show the flake but it had already set to far. This is the best I could do.




Hope you enjoyed the pics on this R33 Godzilla!

This GT-R came in for a promotion we were having in January. I spoke briefly to the client about a few areas of concern over the phone and then we both agreed that weather permitting it would come in for a 2 stage polish + Opti Gloss Coat. Luckily everything worked out and surprisingly the client didn't live to far away from the shop.



Arrival




Claybarring the paint


Masking off the rubber trim


Measuring the paint




Onto the 1st stage of polishing

After


Metallic flake popping again




Opti Gloss Coat about to be applied

Spoke to this client on Facebook a few months back and he let me know he was expecting this ISF sometime later in the year and that he wanted to give it a "fresh" start. We weren't sure which service to go with and decided to wait until the ISF arrived. Fast forward to last week and in it came. Originally we agreed on a 2 stage polish + Opti Gloss Coat but as we started to polish the paint we encountered an issue and found out that a product called RestoreFX had been applied hindering us from achieving proper paint correction. I contacted the owner and let him know the revised quote to remove the RestoreFX and then to perform the 2 stage polish and in the end we decided to go with our Basic In & Out service as the client figured out what to do about the situation.

I haven't seen a Lexus ISF in awhile and besides the power and styling, I love the fact that they are not so commonly seen around town!

Hope you guys enjoy the pics of this Basic In & Out detail!



Arrival




Claybarring the paint


Lite polish and wax on the paint




Vacuuming the interior




Even the pedals get cleaned


Using our brush to get in the cracks and crevices


Wiping down the interior


Artsy fartsy shot of wiping down the interior but the steering wheel does get attention as well when cleaning




And finally the finished shots which was sadly taken on a rainy day


My favourite part on the exterior are the front fenders




Hope you liked the pics! After spending some time with one I definitely want to see one of these in my future!

Thanks,
Wes
