Our client came to us and expressed his fastidiousness towards his car collection. Right off the bat we knew he was a car guy; we thought, 'who better to detail your vehicle than fastidious car guys like ourselves, right?'
The car receiving the love? A beautiful 2012 Ferrari California in Bianco Avus (White). There were a few areas where there was paint protection film applied, namely on the rear portion rocker panels near the air ducts, and along the trailing edges of each fender to aid against rock chips. Tarnished and yellowed from age, we removed them using heat. Any residue left behind was cleaned off using adhesive remover.
Once all the old film was removed, we proceeded to perform our signature paint correction. This process involves multiple stages of compounding and polishing to remove scratches by re-leveling the clear-coat. This yields 90+% imperfection removal, leaving a high-gloss, near flawless finish. For more information on what paint correction is, visit our paint correction page here.
Much of the grime and scuffs that occurred from daily driving were removed using spot sanding and polishing in the rocker panels.
XPEL Ultimate Self Healing Film was installed on the entire front nose of the vehicle, including the hood, front bumper, headlights, front fenders and mirrors. Also protected were the rocker panels and rear boot lid where the convertible hard top rests against when in the closed position. XPEL was also custom-cut and fit for the entire rear bumper. Unlike many companies and dealerships, we custom plot our film to tuck and roll edgesto have as seamless of an install possible. This way dirt and other variables have less chance of creating that 'dirt line' we all have seen form on PPF seams overtime. Paint protection film is the ultimate form of protection against rock chips and other variables your vehicle is exposed to on a daily basis that can damage its finish.

Upon installation of XPEL, the entire exterior was protected with Ceramic Pro. The painted areas received 9H and Light, and the film-covered areas were protected with two layers of Light. Having paint protection film coated with Ceramic Pro takes away the tacky-feeling that film possesses, providing the film with more paint-like properties. This aids tremendously when cleaning up the vehicle. Bugs, tar, bird droppings wash off with ease.
At last, once the client came to take delivery of his now-mint Ferrari California, he didn't want to drive it! Corrected and protected, this 4 year old Ferrari looks better than the day it rolled off the show-room floor. We'd like to thank our client as well as the rest of our clients and friends who support us! We strive daily to deliver the best quality and customer satisfaction the Detail BOSS brand is known for.
