Re: DetailedByPrecision:Paint Correction Ceramic Paint Coating SanFrancisco AutoDetai

DetailedByPrecision How did so many defects occur on a brand new 2017 Challenger Paint Correction CquartZ Ceramic Coating Auto Detailing San Francisco





Met the owner in person after he purchased his brand new dodge challenger to inspect it. He noticed a lot of defects on the paintwork after the dealership washed it for him. After inspecting, there were an insane amount of defects and some extremely deep ones as well. We agreed on a 3 step paint correction along with wetsanding for the deeper defects. This was one of the worst brand new cars I've worked on due to the excessive amount of deep scratches present for me to do my best to save it without compromising the paintwork. We chose CquartZ ceramic coating to help with the sensitive black paint.




Wash, iron x, clay

95% correction achieved. M101 w/mf pads, D300 w/orange LC, Menz203 w/white LC, Essence w/black LC. The most time consuming part about this job was not the amount of taping required, nor the sheer amount of defects required wetsanding. The whole car was glazed before and hid so many sanding scratches, and more would show up or reveal itself after going over the section or area. The entire ordeal with the car was just messed up and the end result made both the owner and I extremely happy.

Re: DetailedByPrecision:Paint Correction Ceramic Paint Coating SanFrancisco AutoDetai

Awesome work. I almost bought a black car last year but ended up with a white pearl instead. If I did get black though, I would shell out for a good ceramic coating for sure. I'm sure that owner is much happier.

Re: DetailedByPrecision:Paint Correction Ceramic Paint Coating SanFrancisco AutoDetai

Thanks Chris. For white cars, just do an iron treatment with iron x and claybar every 3 months to keep the iron particles in check. Only issue with white paint.

Hey Roy. The car had matte racing stripes so i had to tape it off to polish in between. The rear emblems got taped up as well to polish in between.

Re: DetailedByPrecision:Paint Correction Ceramic Paint Coating SanFrancisco AutoDetai

DetailedByPrecision 2018 Honda Fit New but not the paintwork. CquartZ Ceramic Coating Paint Correction Leather Coating Auto Detailing San Francisco






Customer found me through google and was interested in paint correction, ceramic coating, interior leather coating to protect his new 2018 honda fit. We met up in person to go over the car and explain to him the process for all the services he was interested in. Gave him a final pricing and he made an appointment to drop off the car. So far in my experience I have not worked on a brand new car that does not require a 2 step paint correction. Theres always deep defects and scratches that need to be carefully removed without sacrificing what little clear there is to begin with. By now, I'm desensitized, and if I do come across a car that only requires a 1 step paint correction before applying a ceramic coating Ill be thoroughly impressed and faith restored in dealerships. Until then more work for us detailers...

Three Enhancement jobs no paint correction. Each received Sonax paint cleaner. One of my favorite paint cleaners to date. Increases gloss, clarity, removes dirt film that a regular wash wont touch, and very light defect removal capabilities.

DetailedByPrecision 2017 Mercedes C43 AMG 60hrs paint correction new car. CquartZ Ceramic Coating Auto Detailing San Francisco




The owner of this beast purchased this brand new and one of my customers is a good friend of his and asked him about me. Got in contact with me and met up in person to inspect the car. The car required wetsanding, paint correction, and protected with a ceramic coating. He was a bit skeptical about the pricing at first which is understandable because its a new car, but i was able to be on the same page as him after some explanation of the process.
