2017 Infiniti Q60
Paint Correction + Cquartz Finest Reserve + Wheels off service
Our client picked up this pre-owned Infiniti Q60 that had seen it’s fair share of tunnel car washes prior to his purchase. The paint had some pretty extensive damage, so we determined we would need to do a Full Paint Correction + Cquartz Finest Reserve to bring back the beautiful metallic.
We did a hand wash with Iron X decontamination. Iron X contains unique chemical ingredients that dissolve sintered iron that has penetrated the paint surface. It forms into a water soluble complex that can be rinsed away. The wheels were prepped using a wheel brush to remove hard to reach brake dust from the barrels.
Before we started the paint correction, we removed the wheels. They were thoroughly cleaned by hand, prepped with CarPro Eraser and coated with two coats for Cquartz Finest Reserve. The calipers were polished and coated with the CQFR ceramic coating as well.
A full paint correction first requires using a compound to remove scratches and wash induced marring and swirls. The second stage is a final polish with a fine grade product. We do a final polish to refine the paint and create more depth and gloss in the clear coat’s finish. We then removed all of the polishing oils from the paint in preparation for the ceramic coating.
When we were done with the paint correction, the entire car was coated with two coats of C.Quartz Finest Reserve ceramic coating. We heat cured the paint with IR lamps to 140 degrees to speed up the curing time and ensure long term durability.
