This 2014 Tesla Model S 85 had to have the right side repainted. The owner brought it to us because the paint looked faded and with a lot of swirls and scratches. We quickly assessed the vehicle and put a game plan together to bring this beautiful red back to new condition.

Pictures show random deep scratches and tons of buffing marks left on the paintwork.


Here it shows the drastic improvement in gloss and appearance after performing the 1st of 2 steps in our paint correction process.


The video shows the vehicle after our paint correction and Gtechniq Crystal Serum Black ceramic coating application.

Unfortunately, most cars that come out of a body shop are in this or worst condition. If your car has been at a body shop, feel free to contact us for a free evaluation of the condition of the paintwork. We can definitely make your car look much better.

How long should you wait from a panel being painted to getting any correction done? I thought you had to wait at least a month?

There's no need to wait that long to perform a paint correction. Most bodyshops wetsand and buff repainted panels 1 or 2 days later. I like to wait 4-7 days before performing any paint correction to a repainted surface. I do wait almost a month before applying a wax or ceramic coatings.
