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
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!

When one thinks of Porsche, usually some of the trending thoughts that come to mind are: German engineered race car, road & track performance, with a bit of luxury and timeless style. This 1985 911 Carrera has all of the above, but was made into something special by none other than Patrick Long! Transformed into an East African Rally car, this beauty was auctioned off for charity and was picked up by our client. We had the honor and opportunity to perform our express detail service mobile to clean her up after a trip in Colorado to rid the exterior of rubber, mud, and some loose gravel still stuck in the treads.
This car was featured on Jay Leno's Garage, check out the video below to get the full scoop on this awesome ride!
This beautiful Porsche Panamera came in for its annual check-up after performing our Stage 2 paint correction and Ceramic Pro Silver Package. We performed a thorough exterior wash to rid the surface of any loose dirt and to ensure the coating is still exhibiting its properties. We then applied Ceramic Pro Sport overtop to add a sacrificial layer of protection until its next annual visit!
It is always fascinating to see the transformation on a vehicle that is an icon. This 2010 Porsche GT3 received our Signature Paint Correction. This is the process in which we perform multiple stages of compounding and polishing to reflow and remove imperfections in the clear-coat to yield as close to an imperfection-free finish as possible. For more information on paint correction, click here.
We also performed a wheel-off detail where we removed the wheels, steam cleaned the suspension and brake system, as well as the wheels and wheel barrels. Upon completion of the deep cleanse, we protected the wheels and calipers with Ceramic Pro, a durable coating that repels brake dust and prevents corrosion, as well as aids in easy-cleaning. This is also available for your vehicle's paint which we also applied to this beautiful Porsche. For more info on our paint coating packages, click here.
Once paint corrected, we wrapped the entire exterior in XPEL Ultimate Self-Healing Film. This will provide a sacrificial barrier over the paint from any environmental variables. Custom plotted and fitted special for this vehicle, side markers, tail and headlights, as well as the inner linings of the fender wells were removed to ensure as seamless and clean of an install as possible. Included is a 10-year manufacturer warranty against yellowing and any film defects! Visit our paint protection film page for more information on XPEL and Suntek film solutions that we offer. Click here.
Once the film installation was complete, we provided 2 layers of Ceramic Pro on top of the film. We offer this as an option so that your paint protection film has a UV protective, hydrophobic (water-fearing, or in other words, LOTS of water beads that aid in self-cleaning!) surface that allows clear bra/PPF to behave and act more like paint. No more static-cling! Dust, tar and bugs wash off with much more ease than without a coating. We also protected the leather and carpets with Ceramic Pro. It's important to protect your vehicle's interior as UV rays can damage and fade your leather and plastics.
Overall, the end result of this GT3 was simply stunning. Near total perfection (nothing in this world is perfect), we've never seen a race car look so dang pretty!
