BEFORE/AFTER PHOTOS

This Honda Pilot was in for a full ceramic coating service. While it was on site we performed a 3-step paint correction. The factory paint on this vehicle had zero shine or gloss after neglect. Most of the paint issues were caused by automatic car washes that often time have acidic properties in the solution to easily eat away dirt and grime as you quickly pass through. All of our products are eco-friendly with no petroleum or harsh ingredients or detergents.

We started with a deep paint clean using our THICC foam spray system to make sure the surface was as clean as possible before hitting it with buffing pads. Once the surface was dry we used a wool buffing pad paired with heavy correcting compound. This allowed us to cut through the years of oxidation and brought a lot of the factory shine back to the clear coat. Afterwards we ran back over the paint with a heavy foam pad using the same correcting compound. The third step was applying a polish with a softer foam polishing pad to enhance the newly rejuvenated surface.

We hand applied our Croftgate USA 9H Assurance Ceramic to the entire surface of the vehicle. We let this cure overnight and sealed afterwards with our new paint sealant system. The surface of the vehicle now requires zero wax for 2-3 years if properly maintained using our Croftgate USA car care products that we supply in our online store. Each ceramic customer will receive $100 worth of car care products to maintain the surface of their vehicle and a free 6 month exterior detail and ceramic reseal every 6 months for 2 years.

We had a lot of work to do on the interior, engine bay, and door jambs. The leather seats were cleaned removing years of natural skin oils and dirt followed by our leather cream. We shampooed and vacuumed the carpets and applied our odor eliminator and fabric protector to the carpeted surfaces. The vents, dash, panels, and plastic trim were all wiped and cleaned.

We ran the buffer and compound/polish over the headlights to bring back some of the factory clarity. The engine bay was cleaned and then treated with our Tire Shine Plus on all the black plastic. The tires were also treated with our no sling Tire Shine Plus which also cleans the wheels. The black trim was coated with our trim rejuvenator specifically formulated for faded plastic and trim.

The results speak for themselves.
