    What a great job. Beautiful looking car. Still tiring to decide whether to have mine done?

    I saw Larry Chanin's Sig MSP last weekend after Pete did his magic and it's fantastic! As soon as mine is repaired :mad:, I'll be scheduling with Pete!

    Traveled to Miami for this Tesla

    I planned a weekend trip to South FL around this Grey Tesla that was scheduled for a correction and Gtechniq coating. I'll let the pictures do the talking :wink:.

    I couldn't take any shots once the second coating went on due to bad weather.
    The end :smile:

    Feel free to post or message me any questions or concerns.

    Another beautiful job. After I wash my car what kind of light should I use to inspect for paint damage?

    I use a 50w LED or a 500w,1000w halogen work light to inspect and work on the car but you can use a good LED flashlight to inspect the car.

    Once again, awesome job Pete. No way am I taking the car back to the place that washes it and created so many paint damages! With the coating, I'll never have to wax it again!!!

    Pete,


    Thanks for your help with my Model S. I'm ready to have you Opti-Coat or GTechniq it.


    Let me know when we can schedule it.
