Vendor 2013 Tesla P85 - Detail, Paint Correction, Protection and AlloyGator Installation

TheTeslaStudio

Vendor - Florida & Global
This 2013 Tesla MS P85 was brought to our detail studio for Clear Bra removal, detail, paint correction, ceramic coating application and installation of AlloyGator wheel protection. This customer drove up from Naples to have us transform his MS and I believe we achieved just that.

Vehicle at Arrival.

Paint Protection Film Removal.
Customer requested to have the partial front clear bra removed due to some damaged areas and deterioration of the film diminishing the look of the car

Hand Wash and Decontamination.
Proper cleaning and decontamination of the paintwork is the most important step prior to any detail work.

Interior Detail.
Our goal on the interior detail was focus on the crevices and tight spaces car washes and other detail centers often miss. A deep cleaning of the leather trim and alcantara trim followed by a good conditioner.
At First Impression we use the power of steam to safely and deeply clean the surfaces with the least amount of chemicals possible. Some of the main benefits of steam are 1- It kills bacteria, 2- It sanitizes deeper and safer than any chemicals can, 3- It's safe on most trims.

Thi is our specialty. This is our passion. This is our business. This is what we're known for.

Experience What We Deliver.
Unlike other detailers who depend on the use of products containing fillers to mask defects on the paint. At First Impression we use the combination of knowledge, proper polishing techniques, high end tools and the right products to permanently remove swirls, scratches and other imperfections found on the paintwork.

It's all in the Details.
A dirt build up starts to appear on this chrome trim when it isn't properly cleaned after every car wash

Wheel Cleaning.
Wheel removal is standard on our major detail services. We use a deironizer to properly and safely clean the wheels

AlloyWheel Wheel Protection.
This is the absolute best protection against curb damage you can have on your alloy wheels. It can also be used to hide the damages on those wheels that already have light curb rash.
Once done we torque wheels to specs.

The Outcome.
After over 16hrs of careful cutting and polishing this is what the results are. This is what we strive for.

beautiful work!! This is why Tesla's need some sort of protective coating to help delay the onset of swirls and minor scratches. My factory applied paint protection film on the front quarter of the hood is starting to look like crap too.

Thank you Sir.
The factory applied paint protection film (PPF) isn't of the best quality. It tends to deteriorate and get blurry over time. I'm not saying that Tesla tried to cut corners here, its just the film or company they chose to do business with who doesn't offer a high quality film. Here in my shop we chose Xpel Ultimate, Suntek and Clearshield as our go to films. They not only look great but most importantly they perform better than the factory option.

When it comes down to the protective coatings. That's what we're here for. :wink:

Amazing job Pete. Looks great!

Thank you very much

So great job, what could we see as a cost for what you just did on that car.

Prices vary from one detailer to the other. You can expect to pay anywhere from $1100 to $1800+ depending on the condition of your car, the level of correction desired and the kind of protection you choose.
