We often get asked, is there any point to prepping and ceramic coating a brand new car. The simple fact is that in most cases the preparation from the dealership leaves a lot to be desired. Most are under pressure to get cars out quickly with the minimum of cost. This leads to poor preparation and in a lot of cases inflicting wash induced swirl marks and scratches. The Tesla Model 3 below is a prime example of this. Paul Young of our CFC Heathrow branch was contacted by the owner of the car to see if he could rectify and protect the car for long term protection.
A 2 stage machine polish was carried out, 1st stage to remove all the scratches and 2nd stage to bring the paintwork up to a high shine before ceramic coating. Then treated with Alphacoat Hybrid, 5 Year, Dual Layer ceramic coating to the paintwork. Wheelguard Pro, 1 Year applied to the wheels. Finally, Alpha Glass, 6 month rain repellent applied to exterior glass.
