iTrader: (22) - Maserati GrandTurismo Sport - Paint Correction, Opti Coat, Xpel

Detailer's Domain: Maserati Grandturismo Sport - paint correction - Opti Coat - clear film removal and install

This Maserati Grandturismo Sport was brought in by a great customer of ours. He requested to remove the front clear film and reinstall as well as wrap the rear bumper with clear film. We followed up by prepping the areas for clear film - compound and polishing required prior to clear film installation.

We followed by correcting the imperfections on the paint with Menznera FG400 with a Meg's Microfiber Cutting Disc and finished it out with Sonax 4/6 and an Uber Orange Pad, followed by cleaning up the paint preparing it for Opti Coat.

Other services provided were a wheel and wheel well detailing including prepping the wheels for Opti Coat. We have found Opti Coat on wheels a great way to protect wheels and provide easier clean up over time.

The interior was vacuumed and cleaned, the leather was cleaned and conditioned.
