    I was lucky enough to work on one of the Ocean Blue S85D's produced. I'm not sure if this will be a rare car later because they do not list this color on the site any more. Any how we did a full paint correction on it to fix some nasty scratches and swirls and bring out that amazing metallic flake. We also did a full interior treatment with Cquartz Leather and Fabric to protect the light gray interior. And to keep chips at bay our newly formed sister company Paint Protection Concepts did a full front end Xpel Ultimate wrap, along with the complete rear bumper and lower rocker areas. Basically all the impact area's I have observed from seeing over 500 Tesla's so do our coverage accordingly. We topped it all with Cquartz Finest for the blinding gloss and years of protection.

    Sun shots don't lie! Perfect paint out in the sun!

    These black panels are super soft and take some extreme patients to get perfect. But thats the OCD way

    The Ocean blue is wet enough to take a swim in it!

    And of coarse a mandatory reflection shot!

    And just for fun here's a jet black MS that we preformed the exact same service on showing off the perfect we results are know for in 60fps! With our Xpel and Coating service these cars will stay looking amazing for years!


    Thanks for looking

    Great work! These are the first photos I've seen that make Ocean/Deep Blue look like it does on Tesla's homepage.

    That is gorgeous - do you have similar set of shots for after the xpel? I'd be interested in seeing the difference on the covered vs naked panels.

    So both those cars including the black one in the video are after Xpel install and Finest. They are done shots!

    Here is some different angles so you can see what the xpel looks like. What I notice is in direct sunlight is very hard to tell it is there, but under dim lighting you can see a texture difference.

    These are all done shots but you can see the Xpel looks great when installed properly!

    Beautiful as always, Joe. My car looks just as good 8 months after your magic as the night you did it. Getting ready to do a Reset and Recharge now that the itty bitty amount of rain we had has stopped.

    I couldn't be happier.
