New car prep

Most people think that their car looked the best the day they drove it off the lot. Reality is, your paint usually took a beating from the careless delivery prep at the dealer. Some of your first scratches and swirls in the paint are “installed” at the dealer. A profession detailer can remove them and make your car better than new. If your car is 1 hour old or 5 years old chances are, you have many small scratches and swirl marks. Automated car washes hammer your paint with dirty brushes causing many small scratches and swirls. Polishing paint (not waxing) will remove these and give your paint a mirror finish. Here we did our new car prep on a 2018 STI Type RA. Subaru only made 500 of these so we wanted to make it perfect. This car is #85 out of 500. We removed the wheels, decontaminated the whole car with Gyeon Iron to remove any iron particals embedded in the paint as well as the wheels. It was washed before and after this process. Next we used Sonax perfect finish to polish the paint, carbon fiber roof and carbon fiber wing. We then used Gyeon Q2M prep to remove any polish residue that remained on the paint. One final wash was given and thoroughly dried. For the final step we applied Kamikaze ISM coating for paint protection and kamikaze Stance on the wheels and brake calipers. We can make your car look better than new!

Detailing cars is a hobby of mine and it supports my car habit. Years of practice and accumulation of equipment led me to this business. I'm not about getting the job done as quick as i can. Rather, i treat each car i touch as if it was my own and time is taken to get the best possible results.
