For this project i traveled north to Palm Coast Florida.
The project started with the usual decontamination steps that consist of (foam,rinse,foam,hand wash,rinse,dry,apply iron remover ,clay ,rinse ,dry). After all the decon steps were done the next step was to prep the front end for Xpel clear bra. By fixing one small rock chip and polishing some of the orange peel from the front of the car .
Since the front end was getting wrapped in Xpel .The dust needed to be minimized in the air as well as the car.So that meant wrapping from the doors back with a plastic sheet, Thus creating a clean environment for the technician installing the PPF.I then applied a plastic sheet over the car so no dust would land on the car prior to the PPF install.After the install came time to wrap the front end with plastic to protect the Xpel from polishing dust/splatter.The following slideshow shows,Some of the major defects that i was able to capture on camera.
After all the polishing was done. Cleaning all the cracks and crevices with special foam swaps was in order After the car was properly polished ! The following steps were to blow out all the dust and give the paint multiple cleanings,With a wax and grease removing chemical followed by a special mixture of IPA. The following picture is showing the reflection after polishing and Ceramic Pro 9H application.
Using the proper tools to hold the trunk open so i can coat the licence plate and upper bumper area .After coating the entire car the wheels were removed for a final cleaning and Ceramic Pro Coating Application.One of the coolest things about what i do!.Is i get to meet fellow car enthusiasts that share great passion on keeping their cars in top looking shape . For example here is the owner of the car Scott helping me apply the last layer of the coating process ( Ceramic Pro Light )And now the beauty shots Here Are some shots of Scott racing his car at the track
I`d like to thank MR Farrel for the trust and opportunity to work on his prized possession. And for his amazing hospitality, By preparing a room in his home for me to stay in for the duration of the project.
