This stunning 3800 mile Porsche Carrera GT is in for our stage 2 paint correction to remove minor surface imperfections and prepare the surface for application for our 7 year ceramic coating! The interior, glass and wheel faces are also being protected with Ceramic Pro
It’s often we have the pleasure of working on Tesla’s Model S’s, Model X’s and soon to be Model 3’s; but it’s a rarer occasion to work on a modified Tesla owned by one of the most enthusiastic people on fire for Tesla as our client. This combination makes every appointment truly a welcoming and exciting experience every time.
The agenda this time was to do a “chrome delete”. This is a fancy (or maybe not so fancy) term used in the industry to black-out chrome trim by using either satin, matte, or gloss black vinyl material to give the vehicle a more aggressive look. All window trim, mirrors, door handles and front bumper/rear bumper trim is chrome on the Tesla.
We also removed the front “T” and rear emblems to paint black, since wrapping these in vinyl won’t yield the result we or our client were after because the material just doesn’t comply to such intricate and small surfaces.
Mid process, the mirror is wrapped, door trim and door handle are not.
Front grille and lower bumper pieces wrapped. T painted, ready to install red T over top
The transformation, although subtle, made a huge impact on the appearance of this car. We & our client couldn’t be happier with the results!

The pinnacle of all things automobile, Monterrey Car Week has so many events for car enthusiasts it will make even the craziest car fanatic's head spin. Our mission during this week was to prepare and shine up all the rare, exotic and classic cars alike for the notorious McCall Motorworks Revival Event at the Monterrey Jet Center, and at The Quail. For Gordon McCall's event, we performed a little bit of everything with our team; from basic wipe and prep, to paint corrections, sealants and even coatings, these extraordinary vehicles looked spectacular for the main event in the evening. Aside from cars from Ferrari (both old and new), the new Ford GT, hypercars like the Koenigsegg and Porsche 918, there were also several aircraft that were flown in for the party. Gordon McCall puts on one hell of a show, and we along with the entire Gordon McCall Detailing Team would like to thank you Gordon for inviting us and being an awesome host!

After a night full of good food, cocktails, and rubbing shoulders with VIP's like John Hennessey and Camilo Pardo (the designer of the Ford GT), our next stop for the week was The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering.
Staged on the Quail Lodge fields, this show is the elite of the elite of high-end automobiles. Koenigseggs, Bugatti (both the Chiron and Veyrons were present), Concept One, Karma, Audi, Lamborghini, Ferrari, only begin to scratch the surface of the rare and phenomenal brands of eye-candy represented at this event.
This was our first time at Car Week, and it surely won't be our last! A huge thank you to P&S Detailing Products, Bob & Dave Phillips, Renny & Diane Doyle, Gordon McCall, and every team member who made this week a success and one that has made dreams become a reality!

Tired of having the sun beat down on your arm, face, legs? Come in and have your vehicle tinted. Not only will it decrease the glare from the crazy sun we have in Arizona, but it will protect your interior from fading and degrading since all our films block 99% of UV (ultraviolet) rays! Aside from the comfort and protection factor, we all know it adds an aesthetic appearance as well! This corvette show car came in for tint for those exact reasons! It also received a layer of Ceramic Pro. Not familiar with coatings? Think of them as a replacement for wax, only you don't have to apply it every time you wash, or even every few months! A coating protects against UV, and also adds amazing hydrophobic properties to the surface which its applied; this makes your vehicle super easy to clean, whether its painted or vinyl wrapped! For more information on Ceramic Pro, click here.
Now and then a vehicle arrives to us that completely blows our minds when its complete. This is what drives us in our pursuit of high quality and unmatched results. This Ferrari 458 came to us with heavy scratches, swirls, and imperfections from improper care. While not perfect, we achieved approximately 90% perfection with our Stage 2 paint correction.

This Italian stallion also received a full front paint protection film to protect against rock chips from highway and daily driving. We offer XPEL Ultimate as well as Suntek Ultra, both which carry a 10 year warranty against cracking and yellowing. I want paint protection film, take me there now!
Furthermore, the 458 Italia also received our 5 Year Warranted ceramic coating by Ceramic Pro. This offers a 2 layer system in which the first layer applied adds chemical and scratch resistance. The top layer provides a super slick, high-gloss, hydrophobic shield that adds UV protection, not to mention makes cleaning a breeze. Not only are these properties beneficial for ease of cleaning and low maintenance, but even sweeter, having a ceramic coating applied to your vehicle eliminates the need to ever wax it again!
