Hi Guys, As you may or may not know, my website has been running for about 3.5 years now. Due to how busy work can be its very difficult to update it with recent vehicles and testimonials. Luckily 99% of clients who have work done by me follow my work on my company facebook account so it’s never been a major issue. But as 3 years have continued my business has evolved massively, with not many new clients knowing what we can really achieve in 2014. Due to this GAD has had a major makeover over the last 5 months and I am happy to say my brand new 2014 website will be live Thursday 1st May. As part of the launch there will be two competitions that will be shared on here, but will be running live on my companies FaceBook page. This will involve wax giveaways included my signature wax built by bouncer himself and my very own Apparel. There are also a lot of things happening this year that I can’t talk about just yet. But with the official release a couple of weeks ago, one of them I can. As some of you may know, a select few of us around the UK, last year were testing a secret Crystal Lacquer for Gtechniq. This soon would be the strongest most advance nano coat in the world. I was selected being Gtechniq approved and found the unrefined product very durable with insane water beading. Below is a small paragraph to some the product up: Crystal serum’s innovative composite ceramic structure represents a major development in aftermarket covalently bonding ultra durable nano coatings. A single application of crystal serum not only forms a thicker protective barrier then standard nano-coats. It also offers independently proven world class leading levels of gloss, scratch and chemical resistance and durability. The 9H top and softer 7h base layer improves swirl resistance over regular 9h coatings. Furthermore compared to standard ceramic coatings. Crystal Serum forms a relatively thick combined film which greatly reduces surface hazing. The molecular structure of the hard top layer is exceptionally chemical resistant. Crystal Serum can withstand even the strongest wash chemicals and bird droppings. An additional benefit from having a flexible base layer and hard top layer is that Crystal Serum is very resistant to extreme heat changes from -40 degrees to +250 degrees. Making it the strongest, most durable automotive protection in the world. The new product as above has been named Crystal Serum. As part of the product release Myself, KDS Keltec & SI Restoration was the first to apply it to clients cars in the world. KDS completed a Veyron, myself a 458 Italia and I believe SI Restoration was a 991 Porsche. All cars were complete with professional videos with KDS releasing there’s first. Even Gtechniq themselves have not released there media video on the product as it hasn’t had a full media launch by themselves. But I myself have now fitted 3 full signature paint correction details all with Crystal serum Inc the rest of the full Gtechniq TSP package. As I have said above my first official client car was a Ferrari 458 Italia in black. But I had a photographer come in and spend a week with me filming the work and photographing all the shots. This will be officially released alongside the launch with the new website as well as all the media coverage. But since then I have completed a Porsche Cayenne GTS and last week a Ferrari 360 Spyder with a Phantom next week. So as a sneak preview of all the new things coming, I thought I will share with you the 360 Spyder GAD signature detail with the exclusive Gtechniq Crystal Serum. The Ferrari 360 Spyder was purchased by my client from Amari supercars. The car was purchased on a very good deal knowing that it was going to need some work to get it looking good. So with the Shikh Amari Syed watching my FB wall himself, I started the job. The car prior to my client purchasing it was left outside on the drive for 11 years. The guy never garaged it nor did he take much car of it whatsoever. The first thing that you noticed bar the paint looking very dull was the soft top. The sun had destroyed its colour and as you can see, looking very tired indeed. The seats were also cracked quite a bit and were looking as dull as the roof. So after a discussion with my client his was the initial list of what be completed: -Complete paint correction detail. -Wheels removal deep clean. -Engine bay clean. -Soft top deep clean, re dyed and crystal lacquer protection. -Both seats Refinished. -Headlight restoration. -Complete interior detail. -Rear soft top plastic window corrected for UV damage. -Full Gtechniq TSP package Inc Crystal Serum, EXOv2 x 2 coats, C5, G1, L1 & I1. First job was to deep clean the roof. This was completed with Renovo soft top cleaner and a horse hair brush and left to soak out of the sun. While that was completed all shuts and gaps were treated to surfex HD and agitated with a detailing brush. The engine bay was also treated to surfex HD and given a good scrub. The car wash then given a snow foam bath, keeping as much off the roof as possible. The car was then rinsed of a 50’c using purified water including the roof. Remember my hot karcher has variable pressure which I turn down to rinse soft tops. The car was then wash with Gtechniq G wash using the 2bm and gtechniq Marino mitt and optimitt for the lower half’s. The car was then rinsed off, given a chemical bath, re washed, rinsed and taken inside for drying. This was completed with 70/30 drying towel and warm air blower. Car was then clayed with Elite Car Cares very own mild clay and meguiars last touch for clay lube. Once completed the car was given a thorough IPA wipe down. As you can see the first thing I noticed was the super dry lacquer that was head to foot on the vehicle. After checking all shuts behind various panels such as the front wing it had become apparent that this vehicle has had a full body respray. Even the paint had sunk where the soft top had been put back up and had rested on the rear platform. So the first thing I wanted to tackle was the roof and headlights. The rear deck was going to need serious polishing so was best to get the roof done and dried over the weekend, so that it was dry to fold away when machining the rear deck. The roof surrounding was masked up and the first coat of dye was laid down. This is a seriously time consuming job and though I would say most with a careful hand could tackle this it is not for the non patient. Then it was time to tackle the headlights. For this I wet sanded them with 1500, 2500 & 3000. Once I was happy with the overall flatten finish they were compounded with menzerna 400 on the rotary with an LC wool pad. Once completed though it was apparent that one headlight had been split from the light and had been internally scratched, so as you can see below the right headlight is now seriously letting down the overall appearance. Unfortunately QV of Windsor didn’t have time to come and disassemble the lenses from the light so this has been booked in to be complete in a couple of weeks. One the lights were completed it was back to the roof to give it its second and final coat. These coats were complete 24 hours apart prior to removing the masking to ensure an even black finish. Once this was complete it was onto removing the swirling and super dry lacquer. Various shots. Rear deck badge removed to remove defects and ensure and even finished of crystal serum.
