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.

Had a chance to asses this S5 last year but due to scheduling on both our ends things didn't pan out. But this year the client wanted to get it done before our busy season hit so in it came for March and received our 2 stage polish with Opti Gloss Coat as protection.

The paint was in pretty rough shape so we had to hit it with a compound for the 1st stage

after (as you can see the compound removed the swirls but left a haze behind due to it's aggressiveness)

After the 1st stage we refined the paint with a lighter cutting polish on the 2nd stage to remove the haze as well as leave a deep gloss

This beautiful Sepang Blue V10 R8 came in early spring but we have been so busy that I haven't had time to post it until now.

Not really much of a back story, got a call inquiring about Opti Coat Pro, client inquired with a few Audi Club members who vouched for our work, then in it came.

One of the first M2's delivered in the GTA we had done this back in the early spring.

Client informed us that he was expecting delivery and was interested in protecting it right away with Opti Coat Pro. We advised that the dealer not wash the car but remove the plastic to insure no damage underneath. Day of delivery in it came straight from the dealer. Paint wasn't bad at all just some very light swirls that we polished out with a 1 stage polish.

Long time client purchased this 997.2 GT3RS earlier this year and wanted to get it up to standard. I had gone with him to the purchase just to inspect it as well as measure the paint to make sure no panels had been repainted and everything turned out good. A few months later and a couple weeks ago in it came for a full interior, 2 stage polish, engine shampoo, and 2 coats of Opti Coat Pro.

Always a pleasure to detail client's cars who we have established a good relationship with. Looking forward to more additions to the collection wither it be the family hauler or the weekend car.

Hope you enjoyed the pics!

Long time client who previously brought us his w219 CLS 500, purchased this new w218 CLS 63 AMG and brought it in again for a 1 stage polish + Opti Gloss Coat.

Not much to mention about the car itself, the paint wasn't to bad and the 1 stage was enough to bring it up to a 8.5/9 out of 10.

On to the pics.

Good friend bought a brand new M4 GTS and we were expecting it since Feb. In it finally came last week for 3 layers of Opti Coat Pro+ but, the paint had a little bit of issues and required a 2 stage polish especially for the lower parts of the doors. Unfortunately due to the colour we couldn't get good before and afters of the results but none the less couldn't have it in the shop and not take pictures!

Anyways on to the write up.
