CrystalPro VX1 detail…BMW 1M

Somehow, I like this car, alot! To me, it has all the necessary ingredients…manual transmission, nimble, rear wheel drive, superb styling and overall a great drive.

This car is only 2 months old and comes with the usual factory swirls and imperfections. The owner wants the paintwork perfected and protected by our CrystalPro VX1 Glass Coat to give it a durable year-round protection and ease of maintenance.

VX1 Glasscoat will give white a radiant shine that no wax or sealant could replicate. It is inert, meaning it’s crystal clear and will not turn yellowish on white paint and makes maintenance & cleaning of pollutants such a simple task…

Surface coating products…

I received quite a few enquiries from some of my clients and regular readers of my blog, referring to some of my entries below as to which vehicle protection coating that I do offer and/or will recommend to them…
(1) Meguiar’s M188 Deep Crystal Coating
(2) G’Zox Quartz Coat 7

Allow me to clarify…I received or are able to obtain quite a few brands of coating products every now and then and I ran some serious real world test on every one of these to assess their performance and suitability for adoption as one of my detailing arsenal. As many of you may know, there has been an upsurge of new coating products entering into the market over the past few months, many of them are passed off as the “real deal” of surface protection or are heavily marketed, usually without any merit or much substantiation. And trust me after testing a bunch of them, it is safe to say that not all surface coating products are created equal…NOT AT ALL!!!

Without going into all the details at this moment of time, please note that I WILL NOT be offering any of these (1) Meguiar’s M-188 (2) AQuartz (3) G’Zox Quartz 7 (4) cQuartz Ceramic Coating (5) gTechniq c1 as a service to my clients! As some of you may know, these are some of the coating products that I have previously tested in-house for a substantial period of time. (1) & (2) above are absolute lemon (despite what the seller initially claimed otherwise) while (3) & (4) do not meet our standard requirement or seller’s marketing claims. gTechniq c1 is the sole exception, but while being a decent coating product by itself, it ultimately falls short of my expectations and do not meet certain criteria that I have set out (sorry Rob…appreciate your support & hoped we could work something out in the future!)

This does not mean that you should not use or try them out (with the notable exception of M-188 & AQuartz which you should avoid at all cost) just that they will not be offered in-house as part of my services.

I hoped this clarify my present position…

This is the water beading protection one should expect 6~9 months after coating...

Signature Detail…Bentley Continental Flying Spur Speed with CrystalPro VX1

Another vehicle came for our Signature Detail…

This Bentley may be only 5 months-old but it came to us with heavily contaminated (metal overspray) & rough paintwork, trims & windows. The owner wants it restored to a brand new condition as the contamination robbed the paintwork of the glow and is rough to touch!

Removing the metal overspray and have it ready for paintwork polishing process alone took us close to 8 man-hours with every inch restored to meet the owner’s expectations.

The car is then carefully polished and finished off with a 2-step fine polishing process. It was then coated with CrystalPro VX1 GlassCoat for long term surface protection!

Signature Detail…Ferrari 458 Italia

This 6 months-old Ferrari 458 Italia has just returned from a 1,200km cross country drive with a couple of grueling track sessions in between. The owner wants it restored to a ‘no-effort-spared-better-than-new’ condition.
 
This after a 4-days Signature Detail by our team of expert detailers…paintwork are then protected by CrystalPro VX1 Glass Coat

 
But before that, all wheels are carefully removed to be detailed, then coated with CrystalPro Wheel Guard…

 
Wheel nuts as it is…

 
…then carefully hand-polished and restored to a “like new” shine!

 
Brake assembly, coilovers & wheel arches are carefully detailed to brand new condition…

 
Engine bay washed and detailed…

 
A total of more than 40 hours were spent just on preparing & fine-polishing the paintwork to achieve a swirl-free finish…

 

 

 

 
Showcar worthy finish…

Detailed…Mercedes SL350

Did the annual detail for this SL350 last week…paintwork looked dull and car came with the usual swirls from bad washing technique.

A 3-steps paint correction detail was needed to bring the car back to a showroom condition

 
Time consuming fine polishing works are needed to give the paintwork an unparelleled color depth and bring it to a deep lustre

 

 

 
Not bad for a 5 year-old car with original paintwork huh?
