Anything special you used for fixing the tail-light? That is quite the improvement there!

The work the founder, Eric, is capable of is a different class. The paint is actually fixed to factory condition rather than just temporarily filled. Another separating factor is he treats the car like it's his own, never taking a shortcut and always making sure the work is as good as humanly possible. You also get no BS or upselling-- all stuff I'm sadly all too used to having been in the car game for too long.

It's hard to think of negatives so I don't sound like a paid ad. It's not a quick turnaround, as it's not a half-assed job, so expect to be without your car for 4 or 5 days. And that's it. For the price of two shitty "details" that will do nothing substantive, you can have someone who understands paint like no one else I've met improve your car's appearance and it's resale.

Last but not least, he's also a certifiable car nut who "gets it" like few other people in the industry. Anyhow, saying al this nice stuff (and meaning it) is making me feel nauseous so I'll get back to bashing the dreadful BMW of Beverly Hills and BMWs decision to rename the M3 an M4...
I mentioned in the beginning of this thread that working with a client like CL is what makes performing work like this enjoyable. It was a true pleasure working with you Nick, I can't emphasize that enough.

The taillights and headlights received a mix of Chemical Guys V36 and Menzerna PO106FA.

That paint correction looks really great, I'm hoping my Jerez E93 will look that good after some similar work! What does paint correction usually cost per hour? Any recommendations for paint correction in the central florida area?

Look up Todd Cooperider, does good work. Cost could be around $35 an hour.

I have used chemical guys for years now. Great p
Line of Products. I was wondering of specific names of products that were utilized to achieve this level of finish. That's all

If you're not coming to Houston anytime soon, do you happen to know anyone out here on your level?

This looks exactly like Night Hawk Black Pearl that was on my Civic SI coupe.

Black with the Blue Metallic Flakes.

Amazing work here and i know how hard it is to keep black clean and that's why i will never buy a black car again.
