Congratulations on having interest in our Ceramic Coating Packages!
Please read the steps below to have a better understanding of the ceramic coating that will be applied to your vehicle! This process will take a minimum of 10 hours of labor! Which is why it takes 1-2 business days to complete! We work as fast as possible, however you can not rush greatness! We are excited to get started on your vehicle! Please read every step below to make sure you understand the process and what's to come!
1. Hand Wash
We start by pre rinsing your vehicle removing the loose dirt and sand, followed by using our foam cannon to apply our soap to encapsulate the dirt. Then we use our 2-bucket method with our wash mitt, making sure to gently wash your vehicle with horizontal strokes to prevent swirl marks on your paint. We always dip our dirty wash mitts in the clean second bucket before dipping our mitts back into our soap bucket to then continue washing your vehicle. After wash is complete, we rinse off your vehicle and hand dry with our soft microfiber towels.
2. Deep Clean Tires & Rims
Using our special products we will clean lug nuts area, wheel well, lip, calipers and deep clean tires! Having clean wheels is important to ensure that your car keeps a nice appearance. But the main reason for cleaning your wheels is for preventative maintenance. Over time, break dust sits on the wheels and the iron particles (brake pad material, metal shavings off your rotors, etc) get embedded in the wheels’ finish. Meaning if they are not deep cleaned, they will cost you money in the long run replacing car parts for your breaks.
3. Clay Bar
After lubricating your exterior, we will clay bar the entire vehicle. Claying a vehicle is the process of removing bonded surface contaminants from your car that cannot be removed by washing alone and that need to be eliminated before the polishing process. These contaminates can cause paint failure and rust if left unattended. Also, if contaminants are left on your vehicle when we start to use our buffer machines, we would be pushing dirt into your paint and causing further damage. Which is why this process is extremely important to your paint's health.
4. Iron Removal Wash
When we apply this product the cool thing is it will spray on clear and turn purple when it finds contamination! This gives us a great indication on what condition the paint is in. If product stays clear, it means the paint is clean! Ceramic coatings need a clean and decontaminated surface in order to bond to the paint properly. Skipping this will likely result in the ceramic coating not lasting as long as it’s supposed to or not performing properly. We then wash the vehicle one last time removing all the contamination that's been pulled from the paint's surface from this step.
5. Taping Trim
We make sure to tape off all rubber, plastic and glass trim to prevent any damage and buffer debris that may get inside the nooks and crevices if your vehicle. We want to have a clean surface and safe environment to do the job right. This process takes a good amount of time to prepare your vehicle for the buffing process.
6. Paint Correction
To properly apply our ceramic coating and making sure it lasts for the proper duration a paint correction is needed. Not only does it help the ceramic coating a paint correction will restore and rejuvenate the paintwork of a vehicle leaving a high shine and gloss paint service while eliminating the surface imperfections.
We have 3 different levels of paint corrections to choose from
Level 1 Paint Correction:Removes up to 50% of swirls & imperfections
Level 2 Paint Correction:Removes up to 70% of swirls & imperfections
Level 3 Paint Correction:Removes up to 90% of swirls & imperfections
We do not guarantee all scratches and swirls will be removed from any vehicle. We have realistic goals for each customer based off vehicles paint condition and clear coat. We can only do so much depending on the damage done to the vehicle. We start with a Level 1 correction, if customer wants us to spend additional time that will also cost an additional price. What we can guarantee is that we will do everything we can to make your vehicle look better then it did coming in to our shop.
