Tesla Model S Signature - Total Rejuvenation, Enhancement and Protection

After seeing our work and witnessing our consistent quality and fanatical attention to detail, the owner of this 2012 Tesla Model S Signature (my favorite color :)) hired us to bring the car back to a "like new condition". This customer had taken delivery of his new Model X (which we also had the pleasure of enhancing and fully protecting) and he didn't want the Model S to be the ugly duckling in the garage.

As the picture will show below, the car was in desperate need of serious TLC but nothing we couldn't handle thanks to our amazing network of partners.

We agreed to pick up the car when I drop off their Model X at their residence. This is a service we offer at no extra charge to Tesla owners exclusively. Learn more HERE

We started by addressing the most time consuming part of the entire project and that was the repair and re-paint of the rear bumper as well as re-clear the carbon fiber rear spoiler as the factory clear had started to peel off.

We then focused on the interior of the vehicle which it was in need of some serious attention, but then again, nothing we couldn't handle.

The best and safest way to clean this interior was thru the was of steam. We do everything everything possible to ovoid using chemicals on leather and alcantara surfaces. Steam allow us to clean and sanitize the interior much deeper and efficiently than anything else out there. It also eliminates any unwanted smell due to too much water left behind by carpet extractors.

The finished interior.
Once every nook and cranny was carefully cleaned we treated all leather and vinyl surfaces with Leather Masters Leather Conditioner leaving behind a natural look.

Clear Bra removal
This Model S had the factory installed partial clear bra. The clear bra had deteriorated and was looking dull taking away from the look of the car so we decided to remove it

Paint Correction
The paintwork was properly and carefully examined and corrected. We also removed the emblems and letters on the rear hatch because dirt and other contaminants tend to build up in those areas. By removing them it allowed us to properly correct those areas.

All letters and emblem were put back. The rear spoiler was taped and properly re-installed on the car. Now with a much higher quality satin clear coat.

AlloyGator Wheel Protection
The gray turbine wheels had a lot of light curb damage. We installed the AlloyGators to cover must of the damaged areas and prevent any more damages from happening.

Time to deliver the car back to its owner.
The customer and his family were extremely happy when they saw how their Signature Model S had turned out. We couldn't have been happier by seeing their reaction.
