The owner of this car contacted me through our website early this past winter. He had been researching coatings and was very impressed with CQuartz Finest reviews he was seeing online on the forums. After some discussion we scheduled the car for the spring time to get it ready for the season of use.
Fresh out of the garage for the winter, the car arrived slightly dirty.
As with any high performance car with performance brakes, the wheels are totally covered in brake dust.

Wheels are tires are in need of a good cleaning.
some slight dirt and carbon built up on exhaust tips already.
Some dirt and bug debris on the front from the long drive into the shop.
Polishing and Coating Process
With the car all washed and decon'd it was pulled into the garage and placed on the lifts.
The wheels were pulled for a thorough cleaning while the polishing process on the paint was also started.
Once thoroughly cleaned, the wheels were sprayed with 2 coats of CQuartz Finest then cured wih the IR curing lamp.
With the paint nearly ready we moved on to cleaning up the wheel wells, calipers and suspension.
All cleaned up and treated with long term protection.
With the wheels and wheel wells all finished we finished up all the polishing on the exterior of the vehicle.
At that point the exterior was wiped down thoroughly with Eraser to prep the surface for the application of CQuartz Finest Reserve.
The wheels were placed back onto the car and 2 coats of Finest Reserve were applied on all exterior surfaces except for the glass.
Once all the coats were applied, the coating was cured with an IR lamp for maximum gloss and durability.
The gloss and depth of this color was amazing. The color flops from dark to light depending on the how the light is hitting it.
