    Tesla's Paint Correction and Total Surface Protection

    2015 Model S 85D
    Ultimate New Car Prep which includes
    - Window Tint (70% Crystalline all around on this case)
    - Paint Correction
    - Xpel Ultimate Full Front Paint Protective Film (PPF) aka Clear Bra
    - Gtechniq Crystal Serum Black Protective Coating

    We started by breaking down any sort of protection that had been previously applied on the paintwork

    Followed by an application of a deironizer for a deep cleanse of the paintwork. We then proceeded to hand wash and clay the vehicle.

    A power blower is than used to remove left over water from hard to reach areas and crevices.

    A paint correction is performed to remove unsightly scratches and swirls. The level of correction performed will depend on the customer's preference and/or budget.

    Once the surface has been corrected, we then move on to the installation of the clear bra. We take our time to make sure everything line up and not to leave any bubbles behind. Every installation is done to the absolute best of our abilities. Once the clear bra is done we applied the Gtechniq Crystal Serum Black protective coating on top of the film and on the rest of the vehicle.

    Here is the finished product.

    If you or any fellow Tesla owner is looking for a true professional detail and paint protection studio please, don't hesitate to contact us. We'll love to be of service to you. We know Teslas better than any other shop in the state.

    So glad I had the XPel on the hood - it definitely did its job. And after the detail the car feels like it's brand new again. Truly amazing work. Thanks Pete!

    We have a thread for "Tesla Moments" but I think this one qualifies as a "Detailer Moment." To be clear, the silver car above with the XPel replacement is mine. Pete also did a full interior and exterior detail so that the car was ready to show at Cars & Coffee. One of my Tesla buddies (Great Dane) said when he saw the car yesterday "Hey buddy, there is no way that you could have done that yourself." He's right.

    After 35,000 miles as a daily driver, with a 10 mile section of expressway that has been under construction for the entire time, this car looks better than it did when Tesla delivered it to me.

    The combinations of Xpel Ultimate paint protective film, the protective coating and proper maintenance has preserved your MS very well.
