Express Wash And Wax 2.JPG

My Express Wash and Wax Package is the least extensive of all of my exterior packages but don’t let that mislead you; this package is still pretty extensive especially when compared to what most people think an “express” exterior package should be. I created this package for the client that’s looking for a proper hand wash that includes wax application for added gloss and around 5 months of paint protection. Even though this is a cheaper package I still only use the highest quality washing, waxing and drying products combined with the best techniques to achieve the finest results possible. So if you’re tired of the disappointing results that automatic drive through car washes and other cheap express car washes produce then this package will surely won’t let you down. I usually recommend having this package performed once a month.

Estimated 1.5 – 3 Hours

This Package Includes:

•Pre-soak vehicle with a special “soap foam” that covers the whole exterior in a thick white foam that loosens surface dirt. Once the foam has been on the vehicle for a couple of minutes it’s then ready to be rinsed off using a pressure washer. Doing this removes the majority of loose dirt/debris from the paint prior to hand washing which drastically reduces or eliminates the chance of instilling any swirls in the paint since the number one cause of swirl marks is from dirt on the paint (that doesn’t get rinsed away during the initial rinse) getting trapped in the wash mitt and dragged across the paint somewhat similar to a very light sand paper.

•Clean wheels. This includes cleaning the rims, lug nuts, brake calipers, tires and wheel wells.

•Clean exhaust tip(s) and muffler(s).

•Remove dead bug remains from front end of vehicle such as the front bumper, hood, headlights, side mirrors and windshield. Some light bug remains may still be present as they sometimes require a very extensive clay bar treatment/buffing to remove which is not included in this package. Sometimes bug remains can even be permanent if they have had time to bond to the paint and permanently etch the surface of the clear coat/paint.

•Extensively wash paint. I use an extremely soft high quality merino wool wash mitt combined with the dual bucket wash method to wash all paint which helps prevent inducing swirls and scratches in the paint when washing by constantly rinsing the dirt from the wash mitt before washing each subsequent panel. I also use all natural boar’s’ hair detail brushes to precisely clean in and around any badges, emblems, crevices and more.

•The car wash soap used in this package is made by Optimum Polymer Technologies and contains a Carnauba Wax additive in it so it actually applies a layer of wax during washing that amplifies shine while adding protection to the paint.

•Dry paint carefully using a squeegee, compressed air and extremely soft microfiber drying towels for a spot and swirl/scratch free finish.

•Apply a coat of spray wax to the paint for additional gloss and protection. The spray wax used with this package contains a combination of carnauba wax and synthetic polymers to create a truly unique shine with protection that lasts up to 5 months! This package doesn’t include any machine buffing on the paint though so for removing any defects such as swirls, scratches, oxidation, water spots, etc. please consider upgrading to a One-Step Paint Buffing or higher.

•Clean all interior and exterior glass and mirrors. Exterior glass and mirrors are cleaned with a special glass cleaner that has a rain repellent additive.

•Dress tires and wheel wells.

Premium Luxury Wash.JPG

My Premium Luxury Wash is the ultimate luxurious maintenance wash package specifically created for vehicles that have had one of my Paint Coatings applied or one of my higher end exterior packages performed. Like all of my other exterior detailing packages, this one uses only the highest quality washing tools combined with the best techniques for optimum results but this wash package uses a very special “car wash soap” that is the highlight of the entire package. The car wash soap used is this package actually contains an SiO2 Silica Paint Coating additive that applies a light silica (glass) coating to the paint that adds an extreme amount of gloss and depth to the paint while also protecting it for 3 or more months! The shine this product produces is absolutely stunning especially on paint already in good/great condition. It doesn’t just benefit paint either, all exterior surfaces such as plastic trim, glass, mirrors, convertible tops, metal trim, wheels, brake calipers, grille and more are also coated and protected during the washing process. I also include applying a special SiO2 Silica Spray Sealant to all paint, glass and rims which enhances gloss and adds even more protection. In addition to all of that I include a quick interior cleaning as well! I usually recommend having this package performed once every 3 months or so especially on coated vehicles.

Estimated 3 – 4 Hours

This Package Includes:

•Pre-soak vehicle with a special “soap foam” that covers the entire vehicle exterior in a thick white foam that breaks down and loosens surface dirt. Once the foam has been on the vehicle for a couple of minutes it’s then ready to be rinsed off using a pressure washer. Doing this removes the majority of loose dirt/debris from the paint prior to hand washing. Doing this drastically reduces or eliminates the chance of instilling any swirls in the paint during the washing process since the number one cause of swirl marks is from dirt on the paint (that doesn’t get rinsed away during the initial rinse) getting trapped in the wash mitt and dragged across the paint somewhat similar to a very light sand paper.

•Clean wheels. This includes cleaning the face/spokes/lip of the rims, barrels (insides) of rims, lug nuts, brake calipers, tires and wheel wells.

•Clean exhaust tip(s) and muffler(s).

•Remove dead bug remains from front end of vehicle such as the front bumper, hood, headlights, side mirrors and windshield. Some light bug remains may still be present as they sometimes require a very extensive clay bar treatment/buffing to remove which is not included in this package. Sometimes bug remains can even be permanent if they have had time to bond to the paint and permanently etch the surface of the clear coat/paint.

•Extensively wash paint. I use an extremely soft high quality merino wool wash mitt combined with the dual bucket wash method to wash all paint which helps prevent inducing swirls and scratches in the paint when washing by constantly rinsing the dirt from the wash mitt before washing each subsequent panel. I also use all natural boar’s’ hair detail brushes to precisely clean in and around any badges, emblems, crevices and more.

•The car wash soap used in this package is a very advanced formula made by CarPro/Cquartz that was formulated with Hydrophilic SiO2 glass fibers and fluoropolymers which can be applied to most solid vehicle surfaces such as paint, glass, plastic, wheels, calipers, wheel wells and more. This results in a durable silica shell that produces a brilliant shine that is incredibly easy to maintain. The hydroelectric bonding function feature means the pressure from rinsing the paint accelerates the bonding process of the glass like shell to the surface creating a unique glossy coat that is resistant to nearly all elements of daily driving while offering significant UV protection.

•Dry paint carefully using a squeegee, compressed air and extremely soft microfiber drying towels for a spot and scratch free finish.

•Clean then wax door jambs and trunk jamb.

•Apply a coat of SiO2 spray sealant made by CarPro/Cquartz to all paint, glass, rims and other hard surfaces for even more gloss and protection. This finish left behind by this spray sealant mimics the incredible properties that have become synonymous with CarPro/Cquartz paint coatings over the past several years. This spray sealant benefits all paint coatings and waxes/sealants by adding many more months of protection to the paint, glass, rims, etc. This package doesn’t include any machine buffing on the paint though so for removing any defects such as swirls, scratches, oxidation, water spots, etc. please consider upgrading to a One-Step Paint Buffing or higher.

•Clean all interior and exterior glass and mirrors. Exterior glass and mirrors are cleaned with a special glass cleaner that has a rain repellent additive.

•Dress tires and wheel wells.

•Quickly vacuum interior and wipe down interior panels. Vehicle interiors in bad condition may be charged extra since it could potentially add more time to the job.

This is the cheapest and most popular exterior package I currently offer that includes machine buffing all of the paint, headlights and tail lights. You can only achieve very minimal results buffing/waxing paint by hand but by using a high powered dual action machine buffer I can attain drastically better results. The One-Step Paint Buffing package uses a “light cut” all-in-one polish/wax product that greatly improves defects in paint such as light swirls, scratches, oxidation, water spots, paint etchings and more leaving behind an extremely glossy surface with wax protection that lasts for around 6-8 months. This package is not recommended for extremely swirled, scratched or neglected paint though it can still improve it. For paint in this type of condition please consider my Two-Step Paint Buffing package or higher. I usually recommend this package to be performed once to twice a year.

Estimated 7 – 10 Hours

This Package Includes:

•Pre-soak vehicle with a special “soap foam” that covers the entire vehicle exterior in a thick white foam that breaks down and loosens surface dirt. Once the foam has been on the vehicle for a couple of minutes it’s then ready to be rinsed off using a pressure washer.

Sometimes bug remains can even be permanent if they have had time to bond to the paint and permanently etch the surface of the clear coat/paint.

I also use all natural boars hair detail brushes to precisely clean in and around any badges, emblems, crevices and more.

•Dry paint carefully using a squeegee, compressed air and extremely soft microfiber drying towels for a spot and scratch free finish.

•Clean then wax door jambs and trunk jamb.

•Partial Clay Bar Treatment. For this step I use the clay bar to remove any bonded contaminants from common problematic areas on the paint that washing/buffing can’t remove such as the front bumper, hood, headlights, side mirrors, etc. where dead bugs commonly accumulate and the lower areas on the body of the car where tires commonly kick up tar and other road debris.

•Apply masking tape to all exterior trim to protect it from any polish/wax residue marks during buffing.

•Perform One-Step Paint Buffing: For this step I use a high powered dual action machine buffer combined with an all-in-one polish/wax product to remove light paint defects such as light swirl marks, light scratches, light oxidation and more while adding a high gloss freshly waxed look to the paint that also protects for around 6-8 months. If you are looking for better defect removal (moderate to heavy swirls, scratches, oxidation, etc.) or even better protection for your paint then you may want to consider upgrading to a more extensive package such as the Two-Step Paint Buffing or higher.

•Apply a coat of SiO2 spray sealant made by CarPro/Cquartz to all paint, glass, rims and other hard surfaces for even more gloss and protection. This finish left behind by this spray sealant mimics the incredible properties that have become synonymous with CarPro/Cquartz paint coatings over the past several years.

I like to recommend this package for most sports cars and luxury vehicles enthusiasts or for the client that wants the most drastic difference they can achieve to the paint for the cheapest price possible. In other words this package gets you the most “bang for your buck” when it comes to buffing paint. This package uses a medium cut polish that will eliminate or greatly improve defects in paint such as light to moderate swirls, moderate scratches, moderate oxidation, moderate water spots, moderate paint etchings and more leaving behind a nice mirror finish. It also includes applying a synthetic polymer sealant that protects the paint for around 12 months while also adding even more gloss and depth to the paint. I usually recommend having this package performed once or twice a year.

Estimated 9 – 13 Hours

This Package Includes:

•Pre-soak vehicle with a special “soap foam” that covers the entire vehicle exterior in a thick white foam that breaks down and loosens surface dirt. Once the foam has been on the vehicle for a couple of minutes it’s then ready to be rinsed off using a pressure washer.

•Apply masking tape to all exterior trim to protect it from any polish/wax residue marks during buffing.

•Perform Two-Step Paint Buffing. The first step of the buffing process uses a “medium cut” polish with a high powered dual action machine buffer to remove more moderate paint defects such as moderate swirls, moderate scratches, moderate oxidation and more while leaving behind an exceptionally high gloss finish. Not only will your paint look amazing with the first buffing step but the second step takes it to another level. The second step applies a synthetic polymer sealant to the paint. This sealant not only adds an extreme amount of gloss and depth to the already highly glossy paint but it also protects your paint for around 12 months. If you are looking for better defect removal (moderate to heavy swirls, scratches, oxidation, etc.) then you may want to consider upgrading to a more extensive paint buffing such as the Three-Step Paint Buffing or Paint Correction.

•Apply a coat of SiO2 spray sealant made by CarPro/Cquartz to all paint, glass, rims and other hard surfaces for even more gloss and protection. This finish left behind by this spray sealant mimics the incredible properties that have become synonymous with CarPro/Cquartz paint coatings over the past several years.

Three Step Paint Buffing 4.JPG

I usually recommend this package for most sports cars and luxury vehicles or for the client that wants to get better results than the Two-Step Paint Buffing without spending the price of a Paint Correction. By offering this Three-Step Paint Buffing package I’m able to use a medium/heavy-cut polishing compound on the paint to remove or greatly improve moderate to heavy defects in paint such as swirls, scratches, oxidation, water spots, paint etchings and more. This package also includes a Full Clay Bar Treatment, Rim Protection Sealant and Rain-X Treatment.

Estimated 2 Days

This Package Includes:

•Pre-soak vehicle with a special “soap foam” that covers the entire vehicle exterior in a thick white foam that breaks down and loosens surface dirt. Once the foam has been on the vehicle for a couple of minutes it’s then ready to be rinsed off using a pressure washer. Doing this removes the majority of loose dirt/debris from the paint prior to hand washing. Doing this drastically reduces or eliminates the chance of instilling any swirls in the paint during the washing process since the number one cause of swirl marks is from dirt on the paint (that doesn’t get rinsed away during the initial rinse) getting trapped in the wash mitt and dragged across the paint somewhat similar to a very light sand paper.

Extensively clean wheels. This includes cleaning the face/spokes/lip of the rims, barrels (insides) of rims, lug nuts, brake calipers, tires and wheel wells.

Clean exhaust tip(s) and muffler(s).

•Remove dead bug remains from front end of vehicle such as the front bumper, hood, headlights, side mirrors and windshield. Some light bug remains may still be present as they sometimes require very extensive clay bar treatment/buffing to remove which may not be included in this package. Sometimes bug remains can even be permanent if they have had time to bond to the paint and permanently etch the surface of the clear coat/paint.

•Extensively wash paint. I use an extremely soft high quality merino wool wash mitt combined with the dual bucket wash method (please see FAQ Page for better explanation of the dual bucket wash method) to wash all paint which helps prevent the wash mitt from instilling swirls and scratches in the paint while washing by constantly rinsing the dirt from the wash mitt before washing each subsequent panel. I also use all natural boars hair detail brushes to precisely clean in and around any badges, emblems, crevices and more.

•Dry paint carefully using a squeegee, compressed air and extremely soft microfiber drying towels for a spot and scratch free finish.

•Clean then wax door jambs and trunk jamb.

•Perform Full Clay Bar Treatment. For this step I use the clay bar combined with a clay bar lubricant to remove any bonded contaminants from all paint that washing/buffing can’t remove. This basically does this by using light pressure with the clay bar on the paint moving it in back and forth motions which “grabs” a hold of bonded contaminants and pulls them away from the paint and into the clay bar leaving your paint “glass smooth”. The clay bar is also used on all exterior glass and mirrors as well. Please see FAQ Page for more information on the Clay Bar Treatment.

•Apply masking tape to all exterior trim to protect it from any polish/wax residue marks during buffing.

•Perform Three-Step Paint Buffing: The first step of the buffing process uses a medium/heavy cut polishing compound with a high powered dual action machine buffer to remove or greatly improve a lot of the more moderate to heavy swirls, scratches, oxidation, etc. in the paint. The second buffing step uses an extremely high quality “fine cut” finishing polish to polish away any compound residue from the first buffing step while bringing out an extremely high gloss mirror shine in the paint that gives it that “deep wet look” especially on darker colors. The third buffing step applies a synthetic polymer sealant to the paint. This sealant not only adds an extreme amount of gloss and depth to the already extremely shiny paint but it also protects your paint for around 12 months. If you are looking for better defect removal (heavy swirls, scratches, oxidation, etc.) or just want your paint in as perfect condition as possible then you may want to consider upgrading to a more extensive paint buffing such as the Paint Correction Package.

•Apply a coat of SiO2 spray sealant made by CarPro/Cquartz to all paint, glass, rims and other hard surfaces for even more gloss and protection. This finish left behind by this spray sealant mimics the incredible properties that have become synonymous with CarPro/Cquartz paint coatings over the past several years. This spray sealant benefits all paint coatings and waxes/sealants by adding many more months of protection to the paint, glass, rims, etc. Clean all interior and exterior glass and mirrors. Exterior glass and mirrors are cleaned with a special glass cleaner that has a rain repellent additive.

•Apply Rim Protection Sealant. This service uses a special synthetic sealant designed to withstand high heat caused from brake friction to protect the surface of your rims by helping to repel brake dust particles which is the main cause of unsightly dirty rims and harmful brake dust pitting. Brake dust pitting can actually permanently damage your rims in some cases. Once the brake dust particles bond to the surface of the rim and build up they can become corrosive to the finish of the rims. The sealant also adds a nice additional gloss to your rims and protects them for anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

•Clean all interior and exterior glass and mirrors.

•All exterior glass and mirrors are treated with Rain-X Treatment.

•Dress tires and wheel wells.

•Polish exhaust tip(s).

Paint Correction 2.jpg

This is the ultimate paint buffing package that truly shows the results an actual professional detailer can achieve. To sum it up somewhat quickly a Paint Correction is basically when you clean then assess every square inch of all of the exterior paint looking for any defects such as swirls, scratches, oxidation, water spots, paint etchings and more then perform multi-step machine buffing using either a rotary or high powered dual action machine buffer with heavy duty polishing compounds to remove said defects and get the paint looking as perfect as possible and most times better than new. It’s basically the next best thing for your paint aside from a complete paint job and costs drastically less. This is an extremely time consuming process when done properly that usually takes anywhere from 3-6 days depending on the size of the vehicle and condition of the paint. In the professional detailing world Paint Corrections are “what separates the boys from the men” so to speak as this type of skill requires many many years of experience to achieve, not just a two day detailing class. Trusting the right detailer to perform such an extensive risky procedure on your paint is very crucial and with over 10 years of full time detailing experience I can assure you your vehicle is in good hands here. If done improperly someone can easily “burn” through your paint which then requires having to take the vehicle to a body shop for repainting which can be very costly. Aside from this package getting the paint to look as amazing as possible, it also includes other services such as Rim/Metal Polishing, Clay Bar Treatment, Plastic Trim Restoration and more.

Estimated 3 – 6 Days

This Package Includes:

•Pre-soak vehicle with a special “soap foam” that covers the entire vehicle exterior in a thick white foam that breaks down and loosens surface dirt. Once the foam has been on the vehicle for a couple of minutes it’s then ready to be rinsed off using a pressure washer. Doing this removes the majority of loose dirt/debris from the paint prior to hand washing. Doing this drastically reduces or eliminates the chance of instilling any swirls in the paint during the washing process since the number one cause of swirl marks is from dirt on the paint (that doesn’t get rinsed away during the initial rinse) getting trapped in the wash mitt and dragged across the paint somewhat similar to a very light sand paper.

•Extensively clean wheels. This includes cleaning the face/spokes/lip of the rims, barrels (insides) of rims, lug nuts, brake calipers, tires and wheel wells.

Clean exhaust tip(s) and muffler(s).

•Remove dead bug remains from front end of vehicle such as the front bumper, hood, headlights, side mirrors and windshield. Some light bug remains may still be present as they sometimes require very extensive clay bar treatment/buffing to remove which may not be included in this package. Sometimes bug remains can even be permanent if they have had time to bond to the paint and permanently etch the surface of the clear coat/paint.

•Extensively wash paint. I use an extremely soft high quality merino wool wash mitt combined with the dual bucket wash method (please see FAQ Page for better explanation of the dual bucket wash method) to wash all paint which helps prevent the wash mitt from instilling swirls and scratches in the paint while washing by constantly rinsing the dirt from the wash mitt before washing each subsequent panel. I also use all natural boars hair detail brushes to precisely clean in and around any badges, emblems, crevices and more.

•Dry paint carefully using a squeegee, compressed air and extremely soft microfiber drying towels for a spot and scratch free finish.

•Clean then wax door jambs and trunk jamb.

•Perform Full Clay Bar Treatment. For this step I use the clay bar combined with a clay bar lubricant to remove any bonded contaminants from all paint that washing/buffing can’t remove. This basically does this by using light pressure with the clay bar on the paint moving it in back and forth motions which “grabs” a hold of bonded contaminants and pulls them away from the paint and into the clay bar leaving your paint “glass smooth”. The clay bar is also used on all exterior glass and mirrors as well. Please see FAQ Page for more information on the Clay Bar Treatment.

•Preparation for Buffing. Before buffing the paint I asses every square inch of all exterior paint and note any heavier defects in the paint such as RIDS(random isolated deep scratches) and paint etchings caused from bird droppings/chemicals/bugs/etc by marking them with a dry erase marker. These heavier defects will be buffed individually before buffing entire panels for the best results possible. I also apply masking tape to all exterior trim prior to buffing to ensure no white marks stain any exterior plastic trim.

•Take paint thickness measurements. I use a special tool called a Paint Thickness Gauge to tell me how much paint/clear coat your vehicle has in each area so I have an idea of just how much extensive buffing I can safely do. Any time paint is machine buffed it removes extremely small layers of clear coat (if working with dual stage paint) or paint (if working with single stage paint) so when doing extensive buffing this is an extremely crucial step to getting the best results without risking damaging the paint. In my opinion a proper paint correction can’t be done without this tool yet there are many other detail shops that don’t use them unfortunately.

•Buff all paint to as perfect condition as possible. I first start by buffing out any of the heavier defects that I noted from the initial paint inspection. Once these defects are removed or at least greatly improved I then move on to perfecting the rest of the paint. The next step is the most crucial and time consuming part of the paint correction process where I use professional grade heavy cut polishing compounds with a high powered dual action or rotary machine buffer. This step is what removes the heavy defects in paint such as swirls, scratches, oxidation, water spots, paint etchings and more. Because heavy cut polishing compounds are only meant for medium to heavy defect removal and can leave behind compound residue, the paint still needs more buffing to get the paint glossy again. The next buffing step uses a medium cut polish via machine buffer to remove any compound polish residue or micro marring caused from the initial buffing step. The third step is machine buffing the paint with a fine cut polish to really bring out the deep shine in the paint and on darker colors creates a stunning mirror shine.

•Once all paint is finally polished to perfection or as perfect as possible it then needs sealed and protected. So for this step I apply a synthetic polymer sealant to the paint. This sealant not only adds an extreme amount of gloss and depth to the already extremely shiny paint but it also protects your paint for around 12 months.

•Apply a coat of SiO2 spray sealant made by CarPro/Cquartz to all paint, glass, rims and other hard surfaces for even more gloss and protection. This finish left behind by this spray sealant mimics the incredible properties that have become synonymous with CarPro/Cquartz paint coatings over the past several years. This spray sealant benefits all paint coatings and waxes/sealants by adding many more months of protection to the paint, glass, rims, etc. Clean all interior and exterior glass and mirrors.

•Apply Rim Protection Sealant. This service uses a special synthetic sealant designed to withstand high heat caused from brake friction to protect the surface of your rims by helping to repel brake dust particles which is the main cause of unsightly dirty rims and harmful brake dust pitting. Brake dust pitting can actually permanently damage your rims in some cases. Once the brake dust particles bond to the surface of the rim and build up they can become corrosive to the finish of the rims. The sealant also adds a nice additional gloss to your rims and protects them for anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

•Perform Plastic Trim Restoration service. This service uses a high grade trim restorer/protectant on all exterior plastic trim which will restore faded trim and for trim already in good shape then this service is also beneficial since it protects and prevents future fading.

•Clean all interior and exterior glass and mirrors.

•All exterior glass and mirrors are treated with Rain-X Treatment.

•Dress tires and wheel wells.

•Polish exhaust tip(s).

Winter Protection Package.jpg

I designed this package to cover all aspects of protecting your vehicle’s exterior while also improving safety when driving in harsh winter conditions. Driving in winter can be extremely dangerous so any little advantage you can have in these conditions is a very good thing. Little things like performing my Glass Protection Coating service can actually improve visibility when driving in heavy rain, snow, ice, sleet, etc. by not allowing it to stick to your exterior glass and mirrors as easy so your windshield wipers will be able to work much more freely and windows without wipers will have dramatically better visibility during these harsh winter conditions. That’s just one of the benefits of this package but it also includes topping off your windshield wiper fluid with a special winter formula, One-Step Paint Buffing, Apply Ceramic Coating to headlights, Rim Protection Sealant and more.

Estimated 10 – 15 Hours

This Package Includes:

•Check and fill windshield wiper fluid with special winter formula. Being able to use your windshield wiper fluid is crucial during winter especially during harsh winter conditions when road salt starts to stick to the windshield. This might not sound like that important of a service to some people but running out of wiper fluid can be extremely dangerous when your windshield wipers only smear salt/dirt on the windshield. Sometimes using your wipers and windshield fluid is the only way to see clearly during certain conditions.

•Pre-soak vehicle with a special “soap foam” that covers the entire vehicle exterior in a thick white foam that breaks down and loosens surface dirt. Once the foam has been on the vehicle for a couple of minutes it’s then ready to be rinsed off using a pressure washer. Doing this removes the majority of loose dirt/debris from the paint prior to hand washing. Doing this drastically reduces or eliminates the chance of instilling any swirls in the paint during the washing process since the number one cause of swirl marks is from dirt on the paint (that doesn’t get rinsed away during the initial rinse) getting trapped in the wash mitt and dragged across the paint somewhat similar to a very light sand paper.

•Extensively clean wheels. This includes cleaning the face/spokes/lip of the rims, barrels (insides) of rims, lug nuts, brake calipers, tires and wheel wells.

•Clean exhaust tip(s) and muffler(s).

•Remove dead bug remains from front end of vehicle such as the front bumper, hood, headlights, side mirrors and windshield. Some light bug remains may still be present as they sometimes require very extensive clay bar treatment/buffing to remove which may not be included in this package. Sometimes bug remains can even be permanent if they have had time to bond to the paint and permanently etch the surface of the clear coat/paint.

•Extensively wash paint. I use an extremely soft high quality microfiber wash mitt for all paint, boars hair detail brush for cleaning badges/emblems and other various wash tools combined with the dual bucket wash method (please see FAQ Page for better explanation of the dual bucket wash method) to wash the paint which helps prevent the wash mitt from instilling swirls and scratches in the paint while washing by constantly rinsing the dirt from the wash mitt before washing each subsequent panel.

•Dry paint carefully using a squeegee, compressed air and extremely soft microfiber drying towels for a spot and scratch free finish.

•Clean then wax door jambs and trunk jamb.

•Partial Clay Bar Treatment. For this step I use the clay bar to remove any bonded contaminants from common problematic areas on the paint that washing/buffing can’t remove such as the front bumper, hood, headlights, side mirrors, etc. where dead bugs commonly accumulate and the lower areas on the body of the car where tires commonly kick up tar and other road debris.

•Apply masking tape to all exterior trim to protect it from any polish/wax residue marks during buffing.

•Perform One-Step Paint Buffing: For this step I use a high powered dual action machine buffer with an all-in-one polish/wax product to remove light paint defects such as light swirl marks, light scratches, light oxidation and more while adding a nice high gloss freshly waxed look to the paint that can also protect for around 6-8 months. If you are looking for better defect removal (moderate to heavy swirls, scratches, oxidation, etc.) or even better protection for your paint then you may want to consider upgrading to a more extensive service such as the Two-Step Paint Buffing, Three-Step Paint Buffing or higher.

•Apply Ceramic Coating to headlights and tail lights. Ceramic Coatings are extremely hydrophobic which means just about any liquid such as rain, snow, sleet, etc. will easily be repelled and slide off your headlights and tail lights making driving at night drastically better. Also if your headlights and tail lights are visible to other drivers when driving in harsh winter conditions then that would also improve safety in these conditions.

•Apply a coat of SiO2 spray sealant made by CarPro/Cquartz to all paint, glass, rims and other hard surfaces for even more gloss and protection. This finish left behind by this spray sealant mimics the incredible properties that have become synonymous with CarPro/Cquartz paint coatings over the past several years. This spray sealant benefits all paint coatings and waxes/sealants by adding many more months of protection to the paint, glass, rims, etc. Clean all interior and exterior glass and mirrors.

•Exterior glass and mirrors are cleaned with a special glass cleaner that has a rain repellent additive.

•Apply Glass Protection Coating. This service applies a highly durable protective coating to all exterior glass and mirrors that repels rain, snow, sleet and more by allowing whatever liquid that comes in contact with the glass to be repelled and simply slide off in most cases. It’s similar to a Rain-X Treatment but it lasts longer and repels better.

•Apply Rim Protection Sealant. This service uses a special synthetic sealant designed to withstand high heat caused from brake friction to protect the surface of your rims by helping to repel brake dust particles which is the main cause of brake dust pitting. Brake dust pitting can actually permanently damage your rims in some cases. Once the brake dust particles bond to the surface of the rim and build up they can become corrosive to the finish of the rims. The sealant also adds a nice additional gloss to your rims and protects them for anywhere from 3 to 6 months.

•Dress tires and wheel wells.

•Polish exhaust tip(s).
