The Back Story
David has been a 15 year long customer of Gloss-It, he first came to Rich back in 2006 with his first car for correction and coating. He initially purchased the C8 in December 2019, after finally getting his new car he gave Rich his long time friend a call for a protection plan.
David was very particular on how he wanted the work done and what the end result should look like. We worked up a plan of action when he dropped it off, to include specifics on the PPF, which level of ceramic coating, Leather & Vinyl Ceramic Coating, Glass Ceramic Coating, and Window Tint.
We essentially did a 1 Step Paint Correction: EVO 21 Dual Action Polisher with a Yellow Moderate Cut Pad and EVO 2000 Moderate Cut compound mixed with a little EVO 3000 Finishing compound. This process ensured we were able to remove nearly 100% of the imperfections!
Paint Protection Film & Window Tint
Once the Paint Correction process was completed, we then moved on to Paint Protection Film and Tint. David plans on keeping this car for as long as possible, along with daily driving, we wanted to ensure every impact area was covered. We did a Full Front PPF (Full Hood, Full Fenders, Full Bumper, Mirrors, and Headlights). The Bumper alone on these new C8's are 15 pieces of PPF that EACH need to be hand trimmed to give it a perfect looking finish. We also installed Ceramic Window tint to help with the raw heat we have here in Vegas. We decided on a 15% tint for the doors and window separating the engine bay and drivers compartment. We also did an 80% clear blue on the windshield.
Once the Paint Protection Film was completed, we then moved on to Ceramic Coating. David wanted nothing less than the best for his baby. We decided on going with our EVO PRO 10H Ceramic Coating which is accompanied by an 8 year warranty. The 10H is our most durable and longest lasting coating we offer. Not only that it uses 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 which includes us polishing up the barrels of the wheels and applying two coats of our Wheel and Caliper coating to the entire wheel along with the calipers. David also requested that we coat all the Glass with our Glass Ceramic Coating.
