Default Re: GTA/Burlington guys: Detailer?

I know this thread is 11 years old but just wanted to bump it up for anyone in need of a good detailer in the GTA. Here is an example of my work.

This client has been a long time customer of ours and has brought previously owned vehicles to us. To be honest we did this job last year but I forgot I had these pics until he brought the car back to us last week for a clean up as he is considering selling it to buy a GTR.

I love the color on this M3 which is Ruby Black. The flake looks like a wine color and under white lighting the car looks almost burgundy. This is a Competition Package so you have the goodies from suspension, to carbon roof, to the sexy wheels. I kind of really like this car if you can't tell....

Anyways on to the pics



Upon arrival




Before


After


I love the flake!!!




Opti Coat Pro




And the after pics

Back




Thanks for looking guys!

And one more on this beautiful GT3RS

We had detailed this client's RS before as well as his 997.2 RS so we were familiar with the paint as well as the condition of the car. Always a pleasure to see this one and work on it as well. The paint was looking just a little rough and we were hoping a 1 stage polish would be enough but in the end we did a non aggressive 2 stage polish which was protected afterwards with Opti Gloss Coat.

As usual, hope you enjoy the pics!



Arrival pic




After the wheel cleaning and 2 bucket car wash we clayed the paint with the Nano Skin Mitt




Brought it in and masked off the rubber trim


Then took paint measurements




1st stage polish before


1st stage polish after with a bit of haze


50/50 shot


2nd stage polish before


2nd stage polish after and the haze all gone


And a shot of us polishing




Cleaning out the residue from the edge of the stone guard with a tooth pick


Then alcohol wipe down




Applying Opti Gloss Coat




And finally the finished pics. I wish so badly that the sun was out to show just how glossy the paint was.




This was the best glossy pic I could take and it didn't even come close




Nonetheless I hope you guys enjoyed seeing the process on a rare colored RS.

Thanks!

This new M4 came to us in pretty good condition straight from the dealer. Other then a few light swirls that the camera couldn't pick up the paint was in great shape. Not much else to say other then enjoy the pics!



As usual the arrival pics




Paint measurements




Masking off the rubber trim




Applied Opti Coat Primer via machine






After removing the tape etc we cleaned out some polish residue with our trusty tooth pick




Opti Coat Pro




Double checking our work with a light that emits the same color light as the sun


Perfect




And finally the fruits of our labour

Default Re: GTA/Burlington guys: Detailer?

This was totally a coincidence that two e39 M5s came in for a 2 stage polish + Opti Coat Pro. They had both booked on the same day so I ended up doing the write up on both cars at the same time which is a first and was quite interesting to do. I was very happy with the out come on both cars as were the owners so enjoy seeing the process and final pics!



Arrival (you should have seen both owners' faces lol)




Masking off the rubber trim after the wash and clay

After

And the finished pics
















I hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed working on my favorite generation M5!
