I rarely make house calls but my brother is an obvious exception to that rule (mainly because his car cannot make the drive on a full charge). I went up to give his Model S a thorough decontamination and seal before the nasty Rochester Winter hits. The Opti-Coat Pro+ I installed a year ago has held up so well and it is really a testament to how easy it is to maintain. My brother is not a detailer or really even a car guy at all and yet when I washed the car it was as if I had just installed the coating. He has been maintaining the coating with Opti-Coat No Rinse, Power Clean, and Hyper Seal. Pretty easy! Thanks Nik!
Mark originally came to me for a consultation of his Model 3 so that I could see the condition of the paint and discuss his options. We determined that a Basic Detail with no interior cleaning would be the best route to take care of his paint. He had some hard water spotting on all the glass that also needed to be removed. Tesla black paint is very soft and similar to Porsche black so it can be very time consuming to finish.
Mark ultimately decided to not coat the entire car but did decide to have the glass coated with Opti-Glass Pro, which will help keep minerals and other contaminants from bonding to the glass for around 2 years. If you don’t know, Teslas have a glass roof so there is a lot of glass real estate to cover.
The entire car was finished with Optimum Car Wax for a nice glossy and hydrophobic finish that will last around five months. The results are stunning and I am thankful to Mark for allowing me to do the job!
My brother and sister-in-law recently picked up a new Tesla Model S 75D and of course they wanted to be sure their investment was properly protected for years to come. This meant two things: Opti-Coat Pro+ and Opti-Glass Pro. Opti-Coat Pro+ is a lifetime coating that comes with a 7 year manufacturer warranty and will protect from harmful chemicals and UV rays. Opti-Glass Pro is a ceramic glass coating that lasts about 2 years and provides some serious chemical and water resistance, which is good considering the entire roof on this car is glass.
Thankfully, this paint wasn't as soft as I had heard it might be and it polished out very well prior to coating. It was well worth the five hour drive to their house to get this done and I look forward to seeing it again and again! Thanks Nik and Michelle!
