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!

Masking off the rubber trim


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

Before


After


50/50 shot




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.

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.



Arrival





Cleaning the wheels while we had a chance to chat with the customer while he waited for his ride


Claybarring the paint




Masking off the rubber trim


Measuring the paint and found no panels that were repainted




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

before


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

before


after




After all the polishing was completed we began the finishing prep

Removing the masking tape


And cleaning polish that had gotten in the parking sensors with a tooth pick




Then protected the new finish with Opti Gloss Coat which lasts for 2 years




And here are the final shots. Unfortunately no sun was out but hopefully you can still see the gloss achieved.





And the last pic




Hope you enjoyed the pics and looking forward to seeing some of you this driving season!

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.

Thanks Skru_Fase!



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.

Had spoken to this client about a previously owned Porsche but things didn't pan out. A year later and a newly
purchased 997 GT3 and we set up a date to get it detailed so the owner could have a fresh start.

Paint wasn't to bad but still wanted to do a 2 stage polish so that it could be as good as possible.
