Scion FR-S Paint Correction & Cquartz Finest Automotive Paint Coating

We get lots of calls and inquiries about our paint correction process and our Nano automotive paint coating.  So i documented some of this detail to share.  In this process its best to note that removing the paint defects is suggested for optimal results when having a coating of any kind applied to your vehicle.

what we have here is a 2013 Scion FR-S in Raven Black.   At first the car just appeared to be a little dirty covered with dust & paw prints from a neighboring cat.

So i went ahead and washed the vehicle and pulled it back in the shop.  At this time the polishing process started.  Were going for a swirl free finish to maximize the depth, gloss and make that flake in this FR-S pop.  I decided to tape a line so we can see a 50/50 shot of how well the polishing is removing the defects which can be seen below.



So we can easily see the defects are being removed after the initial polishing step, so after finishing the whole hood we now have a defect free finish ready for finish polishing,

as we move on to the doors there are more defects that need to be removed and these are worse than what what was on the hood.

So after some testing of different polishes and pads we came up with the right combo to remove these swirls and now were left with a defect free finish & the finish polishing brought out the depth in this Raven Black FR-S

Once the finish polishing was done we went over the entire vehicle with Cquartz Eraser an intense cleaner designed to dissolve oil particles and remove polish residue to prepare the paintwork for Cquartz.

Before we get started coating the customer brought to my attention that someone tried to sand and polish his headlights & ended up doing more damage to the lens.


after poishing out the scratches we have a nice looking headlight.



And here’s the Cquartz glass coating.   After 8 hours of polishing paint and repairing the headlights we can now apply the coating. This super high gloss coating which protects the paint and other automotive surfaces from UV, dirt, brake dust, iron contaminants, bugs, bird droppings, tar, and all sorts of environmental contaminants.  CQUARTZ FINEST achieves an amazing increase in hardness of up to 2H (Mohs scale) beyond the original surface hardness.  This will make the car easier to clean and keep maitenance to a minimum.  CQuartz Finest offers dirt and water shedding abilities beyond that of any other product available.

CQuartz Finest is the most exclusive coating available.  Unlike other competing nanotech glass coatings, Finest cannot be purchased on the open market and is installed by only CarPro Authorized Finest Installers who have honed their skills so they may polish your paint to the highest level before protecting it with Finest.   Here are final results.
