C7 ZO6 Receives Clear Bra / Cquartz Finest

The 2015 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6, better known as a Stingray on Steroids.  With Such a low center of gravity 625bhp this thing is a Beast!  On this newly purchased Corvette we go over areas prone to rock chips,  factory defects and ceramic coatings.  We will show how we repair these defects with a paint correction, then protect them with the most leading edge products on the market provided by Xpel Paint Protection Film (Clear Bra) and Car Pro’s CQuartz Finest Ceramic Paint Coating. This customer opted for a full paint protection film wrap from the nose to the rear bumper, on top of that well add our Exclusive Quartz Finest Ceramic Paint Coating.  So lets get started!

So we start with our citrus stripping soap to remove any waxes or sealants.
