    Vehicle: Tesla Model S P85D
    Work to be performed: Full Paint Correction, Wrapped full front in Xpel Ultimate clear bra, Gtechniq Crystal Serum Black protective coating, 3M Crystalline window tint (40% sides and back, 70% full windshield).

    The owner of this MS hired us to properly enhance a protect his new automobile investment. The vehicle was purchased preowned and it had not been well taken care of. The paint had a lot of scratches, a combination of surface scratches and others that were deeper. After properly washing and decontaminating the paintwork, we carefully inspected the surface and went to work .

    It took a little bit over 13hrs of careful and proper polishing to bring the paintwork to better than new condition.

    Installation of Xpel Ultimate Clear Bra
    When we install our clear bra, we strive to make every installation as seamless as possible, wrapping edges wherever we can and in other areas where we're not able to do so, we bring the film as close to the edge as possible.

    The End Result
    After 4 days of intensive hard work we finally have the car completed and ready for delivery. The paintwork turned out amazing. Higher gloss, added depth and crystal clear reflection.

    Ready to go Home
    Once our work was completed we delivered the car to its happy owner in Ft Myers.

    As you can see once again, we have not only properly and meticulously enhanced and protected this beautiful MS but we also make the customer's life much easier thanks to our concierge service.

    Thanks to our highly skilled and dedicated team of craftsmen, we're able to provide our Tesla customers an array of high quality services under one roof that are very hard for others to match.

    Contact us today to schedule your new or existing Model S or Model X. We look forward to serving you in the very near future.

    God knows what this MS went thru before my customer bought it. A lot of the issues here are due to improper washing techniques, allowing bugs to sit on the surface for too long, etc. Good thing we were able to properly and safely remove all of it.
