    So after quite a bit of thought (and a lot of forum-searching), i took my Model S to Glistening Perfection down in Orange County. I opted to do their Phase 2 Renewal Service, Nano coating, Clear Film with XPEL Ultimate, and Huper Optik Tint. Since my MS is black, it had some swirls and light scratches. They did end up doing a paint correction as well.


    The techs at GP first washed and clayed the entire car and glass surfaces

    Then they polished everything before applying the clear film. Moe is pretty OCD about this stuff and having everything be perfect

    Entire front bumper was dis-assembled, then re-assembled for clear film install

    I decided to wrap the whole rear bumper for protection as my daughter rides in the back seat (her favorite ever)

    I had Huper Optic Ceramic 60 installed on all windows, including windshield. Here's a shot looking in from the outside. Very light shade but the heat rejection is amazing. I decided to have them install Ceramic 15 on the back window for privacy since my daughter will be rear-facing back there

    Looks phenomenal! Great choices all around on the wrap and the tinting. Shiny and beautiful. Congratulations! I'm thinking I definitely have to do the rear hatch tint as well since my son will be riding in the third row often.
