So shiny and smooth!
Forgot to say this was done by AAPP_Brett
Thank you Brett and Tiffany!
Pool of liquid black ink in the shape of a Tesla.
Or maybe you've created, "Piano Black exterior"
Black is so nice when it's perfectly glossed like that.
Yeah, I'm having trouble walking by it. It's so slick. So happy I did it.
Looks AWWESOME!! I had mine done, and now am getting the PPF treatment (full front, mirrors, rockers, hatch shelf, partial rear fender), and another coat of OptiCoat on top of the PPF. Can't wait!
Betcha it glides through the air better with that.. giving you better fuel efficiency, or speed... whichever way you choose to use the electrons.
I need to do something like that.... badly...
How does OptiCoat compare to CeramicPro?
Anyone have long term experience with these products? How do they hold up over 5-10 years?
What happens if the coating gets dings? Is it like touching up paint?
What happens if your paint already has dings?
Please accept my apologies for all the questions
Over under $10,000. Just tell me I have to know
Under... I only did the partial car. Full car wrap would run 8-9k.
I did OptiCoat Pro inside and out (yes, they do the interior too, same warranty against staining etc. for all leather, alcantara, carpets, floor mats, steering wheel, etc.)
I did new OptiCoat PPF (only one supported to put on top of ceramic coat) for front clip, rockers, mirrors, front rear fender, hatch shelf, and the door frame panels (aluminum Model S panels that get scratched when you get in/out of the car). OptiCoat PPF is pretty new, so consider me a guinea pig.
Finally, they OptiCoat Pro again on top of any of the PPF (so entire car is once again ceramic coated, even on top of the PPF).
Whole thing was under 5k. (or will be, they are still doing it now, will be ready tomorrow)
Man, I just want my car to look ripped and torn when I drive it. When reselling, I'll just give the buyer an option to pay 10k extra for a PPF/OptiCoat treatment
I would put Ceramic Pro™ or Nanohide™ as a TRUE scratch resistant coatings. Opti-coat is not as thick and will keep it shiny and clean, but will wear off faster. Not as good with scratch resistance either.
OptiCoat Pro will definitely resist micro scratching (swirls, etc.), but you need PPF like Nanohide or equivalent to get true scratch and chip resistance and/or self-healing. I doubt Ceramic Pro is any different from OptiCoat or any other ceramic coating product, which helps protect against micro scratching and erosion of the clear coat (from bugs / bird poop / etc.), and also aids cleaning.
The "thickness" of any ceramic product from my understanding is the # of coats you put on it. You can lay any number of coats and constantly increase thickness.
If I am misinformed from what I've read, I'd love a pointer to the info that shows Ceramic Pro is materially different from Opti Coat Pro. Maybe I chose the wrong one?
Can we get a volunteer to do half their car w/Ceramic Pro, the other half w/Opti Coat Pro, then report back in 12-months?
I would have done it, but mine is already coated with Nanohide. I will do it on the next one.
