    DetailedByPrecision 2012 Audi S4 whole car covered in acidic rain spots being shipped from Hawaii Auto Detailing San Francisco



    I got a phone call regarding spots on the paintwork that wouldn't come off with a wash. He mentioned the car was shipped on an open deck with no protection from elements. I did a test spot with a water spot chemical remover and it helped with the shallower type etchings, but the heavy areas needed paint correction. The end results cleaned up the car really well and the customer was extremely happy.

    DetailedByPrecision 1997 Toyota 4runner severe oxidation on paint.2017 Prius Prime,2005 Mercedes C55,2018 Lexus IS300 Auto Detailing San Francisco




    Owner of the 4runner goal was to see if anything can be done to the current condition of the hood. I did a test spot with him in person and he was amazed with the improvement. I did a walk around with him and he pointed out the rest of the paintwork was also really chalky and oxidized. The job was challenging because of brittle/bad quality repainted panels and extremely thin OEM paint. I fed the paintwork with some glaze, a technique I learned from here. Then I proceeded to compound and polish, before applying a ceramic coating onto the hood only to protect it.

    DetailedByPrecision 2017 Ford Shelby GT350 Brand new car extremely damaged paintwork. Paint Correction Ceramic Coating Auto Detailing San Francisco




    The owner of this car is a true car enthusiasts like us, very informed, watches Larry @ Ammo, Matt @ OG, so expectations were extremely high right off the bat. The car was on an open bed truck from South Dakota to San Francisco. The color of the car is black which does not help, plenty of scratches, swirls, factory defects, some irreparable which you guys will see later. I gave a 2 week estimate of finishing the job which was 3 step paint correction, cquartz ceramic coating, remove oem factory white vinyl racing stripes. After I completed the whole front end, the owner took the car to another shop to have the whole front end protected with xpel ppf. Afterwards brought back to me so I can finish the rest of my part and get ready to present the car.

    Water spots, swirls, scratches, factory sanding scratch or burn????

    [​IMG]auto-detailing-san-francisco-Detailed-By-Precision5430 (1) copy by Limny Kuang, on Flickr




    I was really cautious when polishing this area because I did not want to be the person that ultimately strikes through the paint attempting to fix another persons problem. I used least aggressive and worked my way up to a mild compound. Thankfully it came out and the owner was able to go forward with xpel pff the whole hood.

    When the owner arrived to pick it up he was very grateful I took care of his pride and joy. I earned his trust and respect because he chose me out of so many options and I delivered the results. This job made me feel genuinely appreciated which this industry lacks due to a low overhead start up, and lack of experienced detailers. Thanks for viewing my work.

    DetailedByPrecision 2018 Tesla Model 3 Check panel gap for issues and paintwork defects Paint Correction Ceramic Coating Auto Detailing San Francisco




    Owner contacted me about ceramic coating his new 2018 tesla model 3. I had him swing by the shop so I can inspect the car in person with him. We found a couple panel gap issues, and a lot of paint defects from the factory. Planned out a 3 step paint correction and protect the paintwork with a ceramic coating.

    Looks like business is good, and you have a steady flow of customers. That's awesome. You gotta be happy, and proud.

    Interesting about the paint defects and panel gaps on the Model 3, especially with it being new from the factory. Guess quality control was on break that day, haha.

    DetailedByPrecision 2007 Porsche 911 Paint Correction Ceramic Coating Wheels off Auto Detailing San Francisco




    The owner of the porsche 911 is a car enthusiast and genuinely loves his car. He takes his car to the track once in a while and understands what goes into a proper detail. I met him in person to go over his goals for the car. He mentioned its been over 3 years since he last got it detailed and he wanted the headlights restored, turn signals restored, wheels off ceramic coating, paint correction, and ceramic coat the paintwork.




    Starting the process with wheels first

    [​IMG]auto-detailing-san-francisco-Detailed-By-Precision6034 (2) copy by Limny Kuang, on Flickr



    Applied a coating specifically for plastic wheel wells and ceramic coated brake calipers

    Starting with the headlights and turn signals. Used 1000 grit, 1500, 2000, 3000. Protected with Carpro Dlux
