The thickness of the paint you see on your car is measured in microns, 1 micron is equivalent to one thousandth of a millimetre (1/1000mm). It’s comprised of three layers: Primer, Base Colour Coat and Clear Coat. The most common paintwork.

The first layer applied to the metal panel of a vehicle is primer. Primer is designed to make the panel uniform so as to allow the paint colour to be evenly applied to it. Primer on modern cars is thinner than it used to be owing to advances in panel stamping technology, meaning the panels are being supplied in better, more even condition. As a result primer thickness these days, while varying according to auto manufactures and individual plant operating processes, is usually between 8 microns and 38 microns.

Any time is a good time. The best times however are leading into the winter months and the spring time. Detailing your car leading into the winter months allows the Nano Coating to protect your cars finish during the harsh months of the year while at it’s strongest level of protection. The spring time detail allows us to decontaminate the interior of germs and the exterior of road contaminates

You may think spending, what some would see as, the vehicles total resale value detailing it and repairing some minor door dings somewhat foolish. Why not take the money, sell the car and apply it towards a new modern one with heated seats, navigation, and a backup camera? Have you ever heard the saying…

We started with a thorough hand wash followed with a decontamination wash. The decontamination wash removed the iron ferries metals that bond to the paint over a period of time making it feel rough. After we clayed the paint to remove any organic materials that were stuck on the paint.

Far too many of us treat our cars like second homes: We eat, drink, spill things and create piles of clutter inside.

But stop and think about it. When was the last time you really gave your car a thorough cleaning on the inside? And think back to the last time you hopped into…Read More

It’s not often a car comes through our shop that captures every ones attention, makes people ask “what is that”? Or inspires people to tell stories about cars they’ve owned in the past. The Sin, a 1997 Toyota Supra does just that. When you see the Sin it doesn’t have a hard edgy body like most modern sports cars being produced today.

San Antonio Texas — Recently one of our regular customers stopped by the shop to show us his new Lexus RC 350 This is an absolutely beautiful car and draws stares from any on passing buy. The Lexus infrared metallic finish produces great gloss and is highly reflective. Our customer wanted to have the paint protected with a wax or sealant to keep it looking new and help aid in…

San Antonio — We applied Modesta P-01A primer to all the painted surfaces. It goes on like a polish. After setting up for a bit the excess is removed. We then waited the recommended time beforelogo starting the Modesta BC-04 application. This application is done with a wet applicator a wet microfiber towel and two dry ones. Doing sections at a time with the Modesta BC-04 you really start to see it add gloss and depth to the paint. one the car is coated it’s time to cure/harden the product

Never wax your car again!

How many times have you heard that statement? Promises of protection from the elements and scratching that lasts as long as you own your car. Truth is, waxes wear and wash off becoming less and eventually non effective over time. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating actually makes it possible to never wax your car again. How? Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating is not a wax, in fact it provides 100 times the protection of wax in thickness alone. Too good to be true? We’ll show you why Opti-Coat is for you.

Opti-Coat is not a wax, then what is it?

Opti-Coat is a ceramic clear coat that is hard wearing. This provides greater surface protection from chemical etching that is caused by environmental factors, as well as vastly improved resistance to scratching. Opti-Coat creates a constant shielding barrier by cross linking directly to the paint it is applied to. Compared to any automotive paint protection coating available today, Opti-Coat has superior release properties, scratch and mar defense as well as chemical resistance. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating provides a perpetual Opti-Coat Honda defensive barrier available for all contemporary factory paints.

Why is Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating different from anything else on the market?

 

Tests performed on other paint protecting products show a measurement of less than .02 microns of wax coating. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating has measured up to 2 microns of thickness. That is 100 times as thick as other paint protection products with only a single layer. This thick coating allows Opti-Coat to efficiently defend against damage that affects current factory paint finishes. The factory paint is preserved by the harder ceramic coating, decreasing minor scratches and swirl marks as well. Factory clear coating is susceptible to damage caused by environmental factors such as bird droppings or lime. The acidic properties of these environmental factors break down the factory clear coat leaving your vehicle defenseless. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating is impervious to these environmental factors, preventing erosion and etching, giving you a clean, shiny, undamaged coating. Opti-Coat is not a sealant or wax for paint; they wash off and degrade over time. Opti-Coat creates a permanent bond with the factory coating, perpetually defending the surface without washing off or dissolving.

Do I need Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating?

Yes! Your vehicle is an investment. After purchasing a new car or having your car detailed is the optimal time to have Opti-Coat applied, maximizing the protection of your investment. You insure your home and your vehicle, take steps to protect your car’s expensive finish. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating will protect the factory coating of your car.
