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.

CrystalPro VX1 Glass Coating by AbsoluteGloss Showcar Detailer

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...

Alfa Romeo 147 – Full detail + G|techniq

This car came to me with all the typical paintwork defects resulting from not having it properly detailed for well over 2 years since the owner first took delivery. The overall paintwork looks tired and the gloss has been sucked out by layers of traffic film, scuffed marks and swirls.

My mission therefore is to restore the car’s paintwork back to it’s original showroom condition, have all the details cleaned up and apply a durable protection over it. Well timed as the FedEx man just showed up with my new toy that morning. Thanks to Rob of Gtechniq UK who has been extremely supportive and helpful that I managed to get my ‘fix’ rushed over to me in just 2 days all the way from an ice-aged UK!

Washed, decontaminated and all emblems removed as I prepare for a full paint correction process. The paint surface polishing & prep work alone took me and my team almost 30 man-hours to complete and it’s easy to see the time are well spent!

The application of C1 Crystal Lacquer can be a bit tricky, and it took me a couple of tries before I managed to nailed it just right (thanks again to Rob who kindly took all my calls early in the morning to offer assistance). And the results once it’s fully cured is simply stunning…

I like it best when the owner told me his car looked like it has been graphically mopped in a computer with an incredibly deep lustre & all panels displaying a mirror-like sheen that it literally transform the car to a showroom-worthy condition!

A look at the perfectly polished & corrected bonnet…
