The Back Story
Kevin and his wife were extremely excited to get their new Lexus LX570 Black Edition, yet there was something missing to make it stand out from the rest. They brought it to us here at Gloss-It with the intention of getting the Calipers painted to give it a little bit of personalization.
After talking with the team we had a game plan to not only paint the calipers but also vinyl wrap the hood in satin black and put their logo under the vinyl to give it a debossed look.
Kevin and his wife also wanted to do Paint Correction and Ceramic Coating to ensure their paint was prime and protected. With a 2 Step Paint Correction and our EVO PRO 9H Ceramic Coating this thing looked phenomenal when it left.
We did a 2 Step Paint Correction: EVO 21 Dual Action Polisher with a Synthetic Wool Pad and EVO 800 Heavy Cut compound, followed up with a Yellow Moderate Cut Pad and EVO 2000 Moderate Cut compound mixed with a few dabs of EVO 3000 Ultra Finish compound on the pad. This gives the 2000 a little more refinement and allows us to get a better finish.
Once the Vinyl Hood wrap and Caliper Painting was completed, we then moved on to Ceramic Coating. Kevin and his Wife wanted to protect their newly transformed Lexus without breaking the bank. We decided on going with our EVO PRO 9H Ceramic Coating which is accompanied by a 4 year warranty. The EVO PRO 9H is our entry into the pro series of coatings all of which have a proprietary glossing agent in the formula to give the paint that extra "pop" most people are looking for. Not only that, we use some of the highest quality solvents and solids on the market giving it unparalleled gloss and clarity. We also decided on doing a complete Wheels off treatment being that the wheels had to be off for caliper painting it only made sense. After applying two coats of our Wheel and Caliper coating to the entire wheel along with the calipers we moved on to coat all the Glass with our Glass Ceramic Coating along with all the Plastic/Trim bits on the exterior as well.
