Case Study: Tesla Model S Paint Correction and Opti-Coat Pro Installation

We had the wonderful opportunity to install Opti-Coat Pro (Opti-Guard) on a 2013 release Tesla Model S Performance. Before Opti-Coat Pro (A permanent coating) could be installed, the navy blue Tesla was in need of some paint correction. There were scratches, swirls, hard water spots, and marring in the paints clear coat. Together with the owner, we decided a long one step polish/compound would be perfect to prepare the paint for the permanent coating.

Keep in mind that the condition of the paint before applying the coating is important as to that is the condition the paint will be protected in. So you want to make sure it is in a condition you will be satisfied with for years to come. Enough words, on to some pictures!
