Each of these options provides something a bit different, but they all produce one significant result: durable protection with excellent shine.  We offer coating applications for full vehicles and individual parts, such as wheels, headlights and engine components.  More information on paint coatings and options we offer is available on our Protective Car Coatings page.

Paint Coating Applications

Protecting the paint is our main objective with the protective coatings and one for which they were initially created. To ensure a nice finish and proper bonding, we include one stage of our Light Polish Detail process before a coating application in order to fully decontaminate the paint and greatly improve surface defects. Most used vehicles will require two or more stages of Paint Correction, depending on the overall condition and owner’s expectations.

  • Light Polish Detail (for vehicles with paint in good condition)
  • Application of a premium protective coating to all painted panels and headlights
  • Note: Additional paint correction may be recommended and required for vehicles with moderate paint defects, swirl marks, etc.

Prices starting at $1050 for cars and $1200 for SUVs (CQuartz Pro)

Prices starting at $800 for cars and $900 for SUVs (22PLE)


Wheel Coating Applications

Protecting wheels is just as important as protecting paint on a vehicle, especially when it comes to some extremely expensive wheels on today’s sports cars and exotics. We can protect only the wheel faces after the wheels are washed, or we can perform a full wheels off detail and coating in which case we also clean and coat painted brake calipers. Full wheel detailing is preferred before an initial application of a protective coating because the wheels get a thorough cleaning and are protected inside and out. For more info on the wheel detailing service, please visit our Additional Services page.

Prices starting at $125-150 for wheel faces and $300-350 for full wheel-off detail and coating (4 wheels)


Custom Coating Applications

While we normally apply protective coatings to paint or wheels, many clients request custom applications to protect other parts of their vehicle or completely different vehicles. We are more than happy to tailor the protection packages for your specific needs. Some of our typical custom applications include:

  • Glass
  • Interior carpet and upholstery
  • Exhausts and muffler tips
  • Brake calipers
  • Plastic trim
  • Headlights
  • Engine components and carbon fiber parts
