2019 Corvette Z06 New Car Protection

This 2019 Corvette Z06 was dropped off to us with just 55 miles on the odometer for our New Car Protection Services including STEK Paint Protection Films (Clear Bra), and CQuartz Ceramic Coatings.

The owner of this vehicle noticed how the harsh environment affected his previous vehicles with unsightly rock chips and debris damage. When he placed the order for his new Z06 he contacted us to have it properly protected from the beginning! After going over the options and how our client would use the vehicle we decided on our New Car Protection Package including the Full Front End Paint Protection Film, and our Entry Level CQuartz Ceramic Coating Application! These services will keep the front end protected from rock chips, bug etchings, debris damage and many other environmental hazards and the Ceramic Coating will keep the vehicle incredibly glossy, easy to maintain, and protect against chemical damage! This is truly the best of both worlds and what we recommend to many of our clients wanting to protect their new automotive investment!

First, the vehicle went over to our neighbors K9 Motorworks who specialize in automotive performance work to lower the vehicle on the stock adjustable suspension bolts, and remove/reinstall new trim pieces painted Carbon Flash to match the rest of the vehicles trim!

Once the vehicle is in our shop and under the lights we do a thorough paint inspection to find any damage or paint imperfections that need to be addressed prior to installing our Protection options. In this case, we found a few factory sanding marks, a few random isolated deep scratches, and a bird dropping etching. These are all addressed on a case by case basis using the least aggressive methods possible.

Machine polishing using our Italian made/designed RUPES polishers!

With the machine polishing process complete and all paint imperfections rectified we put the vehicle up on our ramps, and proceed with the application of STEK DYNOshield. This client decided on the Full Front End of the vehicle including the Full Hood including Air Vent, Full Fenders, Front Bumper including Splitter, Headlights, and Mirrors to protect all forward facing impact areas on the vehicle!

We start the Paint Protection Film install by removing the Hood Vent as well as the Corvette Emblem on the bumper so we can seamlessly wrap these areas without seeing a seam or edge! The Hood is Protected in a Bulk Sheet of DYNOshield for a true custom cut install that is wrapped over every edge and inside the vent cut out so it is protected without seeing it!

This up close photo shows how detailed and advanced our Paint Protection Film installations are! The edge of the Paint Protection Film is virtually invisible after our Custom Installation Techniques.

The Fenders on the Corvette Z06 are installed utilizing a Modified Computer Cut Pattern, we modify these patterns in house to fit our installation style and standards. The side vents on the fenders require complete removal of the fender to access/remove so it is not a feasible option to try to tuck behind those areas. This Patterns allow us to line up key components that cannot be wrapped without major disassembly like around the headlights and vent area, but gives us enough film to wrap and tuck into all exterior edges for further protection and undetectable installation!

The final result of our Customized Installation technique in combination with STEK DYNOshield Paint Protection Film is a vehicle that is very well protected from its daily driving endeavors but YOU'D never know!

After our STEK Paint Protection Film installation is complete and has gone through many Quality Control procedures to ensure the quality meets our standards we then move on the final stage of Paint Protection, in the form of our Entry Level CQuartz Ceramic Coating. Our Entry Level Ceramic Coating Application is a two layer process consisting of a hard, durable initial layer with an incredibly slick and hydrophobic top coat. Our Entry Level Service matches or exceeds many of our competitors "Professional" level Ceramic Coatings. In our REAL WORLD tests we have found CQuartz to outlast the competition in side by side, apples to apples torture tests.  One of the many reasons we continue to offer CQuartz as our ceramic coating brand of choice is their commitment to innovation and the simple but critically important fact that CarPro continues to tell us and you the truth and base their claims on reality. CQuartz UK 3.0 offers incredible resistance to chemicals, salt, and environmental damage as well as provide excellent UV protection!   The high silica-quartz content creates a hard glassy layer across the painted surfaces.  CQuartz UK adds incredible levels of depth to the paint along with unbelievable water and dirt repellency and a rugged durability measured in years! Once bonded to the surface of your paint, and cured, CQuartz forms a dense, durable coating that protects the paint and retains a high gloss for years to come!

As with all CQuartz Ceramic Coating Applications, we include an application of a durable rain repellant on all exterior glass surfaces! This product gives the consumer better visuals during a rainstorm as well as hydrophobic properties that match the rest of the painted surfaces.
