This Cadillac XLR needed a extensive car detailing. 16 years old with 160,000 it was time for a spa day! After some evaluation we found this Cadillac needed a little of everything. Full paint decontamination was needed to remove embedded contaminants in the paint. This is done by using a wax removing soap wash, paint prep to remove iron particles stuck in the paint from brake dust, and detailing clay.
The entire car was covered in severe water spots. Unfortunately some spots have already etched into the glass and paint but was able to improve dramatically. Paint was heavily polished to remove swirl marks and scratches and a ceramic coating paint protection was applied.
Wheels were removed for a deep cleaning along with the suspension. After some cleaning the wheels were refinished, powder coated black giving this XLR a new look.
Ceramic window tint was installed to block the Texas sun. After many hour of detailing and paint correction this Cadillac looked awesome. You can clearly see how a professional detail can bring your old car back to like new condition. A car wash can not give you these results!

Do you have a vehicle that you need to get ready for an upcoming car show? I understand that every car is different and the amount of prep will be different for every car! This Corvette was in need of some love to get it ready for a indoor car show in Dallas Texas called Super Car Expo. I only had a few days with the car and with the possibility of a vinyl wrap in the future a full paint correction was not performed. A light polish(buff) and some magic tricks were performed to bring out the gloss in the paint!
Evaluating the paint condition
This particular SS we installed a 5 year ceramic coating which included removing the wheels to properly clean and ceramic coat front to back. After spending many hours on prep and install this car shines like a diamond. The car looks fantastic! Not only will it look this way for years but ceramic coatings will keep your car cleaner longer so less maintenance is required to keep that just detailed look!
