2014 Lexus ISF Pearl White Ceramic Pro Gold Package

Youtube link: https://youtu.be/u62XNcD-cQc

We got this customer from a referral over Active AutoBody In Sunnyvale. Customer got the car from the dealership couple months ago and got the paint protection package from the dealership but she wasn’t too happy about the protection package offered by the dealership. She plans to keep the vehcile for years and wants to make sure the vehicle is protected and easier to maintain in the future. However the dealership protection wasn’t able to survive well over the heavy rain weather lately over the bayarea.

The car came in pretty bad condition as it was raining really bad for the past few weeks. The dealer also provide “Free” swirl marks and minor scratches while they applied the “Premium Paint Protection Package”

Lexus Pearl White paint is not hard to be polished. However it is really hard to find the imperfection to be corrected so that majority of time spent on locating the imperfection. After hours of polishing and the car is ready to be coated with Ceramic Pro Gold Packages with 4 Layers of 9H Coating.

We also removed the factory installed trunk protection film as only 2000 miles on the car it already changes color and have the dirt trapped around. We applied Suntek Matte Finish Clear Film with Protection Coating for the customer in order to prevent damages when moving around stuff from the trunk.

Product / Tool List:

Ceramic Pro 9H –

Ceramic Pro 9H is a permanent nanoceramic protective paint coating. Its transparent 3D matrix structure protects the paint or surface from scratches, graffiti, dirt, aging, premature oxidation, weathering, road salt, rock chips, bugs, bird droppings and even acid rain. It offers excellent scratch, thermal (1382 degrees), UV, oxidation, corrosion and chemical resistance. A surface that has been sealed with Ceramic Pro 9H stays clean for a longer period of time due to its smoothness and hydrophobic qualities. Ceramic Pro 9H is permanent and can only be removed using machine polish. The unique formulation of 9H has enabled it to be multi-layered which means the thickness of the coating can be increased with additional layers allowing a thicker/harder film that will increase its scratch resistance.

2013 Subaru BRZ 30K Miles Stage 2 Paint Correction, Interior Detail and Ceramic Pro Bronze Package

2013 Subaru BRZ with 30K daily driven miles. Car always sits outside so it’s in pretty bad shape. We took this project on to show we can fix a car in this condition

As you can see from the interior condition it seems like it hasn’t been cleaned for year(s). The owner told us he basically doesn’t really care about the car. The Enkei RPF1 gold wheels are covered by track pad dust (Project Mu Club Racer Pads). The customer wanted to know if we could work our magic to bring the wheels back to life again. For the paint, you can see tons of swirls marks, tree saps, bird dropping marks, water spots. Basically whatever you name it is all there.

Product / Tool List:

Ceramic Pro Light – The super hydrophobic and anti-graffiti effects of Ceramic Pro Light mean the coated surface will stay cleaner for longer as dirt and grime will not stick to it. Ceramic Pro Light is highly durable and leaves a high gloss surface once applied.

2012 Lexus RX350 F Sport Premium White Pearl, it’s a daily driven car over the San Francisco Area and parks outside most of the time so we only do a Stage 1 Correction on this paint. The customers main concern is the protection of the paint and also the car can be easily maintained while parking the car outside most of the time.
