    Assessment of the paintwork prior to paint correction and Xpel paint protection film installation
    Careful inspection revealed lots of swirls as well as light and random deeper scratches and wax residue on plastic trim.

    Hard at work
    The paint correction process on this Model X took approximately 12hrs +/-

    Results after paint correction

    The paintwork now is free of all defects that could be safely remove. The depth and gloss of this beautiful signature red has been enhanced. The surface is now ready for installation of Xpel Ultimate paint protective film.

    Working on this Model S was a real pleasure. I love everything about it. The color, the stance (when suspension is fully lowered :wink:) and the beautiful interior. I'm really looking forward to working on many more of this Xs.
