Owner contacted me for a full correction and Opti-Coat Pro on his Tesla Model S "Signature" edition (1 of 1,000 made). A stunning color to see in person as well. A good portion of the car would be wrapped in clear film, so the factory "Paint Armor" would need to be removed. The factory film came off without too much difficulty as it was surprisingly thin for protection film. Underneath the film there were some buffer trails/holograms. The rest of the car had moderate marring in addition to old wax in seams and on most of the plastic trim. Wheels were also removed and fully cleaned and coated as were the brake calipers. Ryan was out again to lend a hand on the Tesla. Burning the midnight oil would be an understatement on this one.

Total time was 25 hours






Car dropped off, suspension set in "High" mode to make initial cleanup easier.

Film removal

One of the surprises waiting under the clear film.....buffer trails

Posted Image

Posted Image




More evidence of machine polishing that wasn't done quite right that had been covered by the film

Posted Image

Posted Image




All sprayed down with Meguiars Final Inspection. Claying all paint and glass surfaces

Posted Image




Onto the RIDS (random isolated deep scratches)

Posted Image

Posted Image



Even new cars can have issues that need fixing

Posted Image




After compounding, final polishing yet to be done

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image





Film behind the rear tires would remain

Posted Image




Plenty of issues on the driver's side

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image




Reflector/charging port cover corrected

The front panel's clear was very hard and required aggressive compounding. Getting results, but would take several further steps to achieve the perfect finish and gloss.

Posted Image




Getting there...

And after final polishing

Even the small places get attention

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image





At about 1am, we took it outside to wash off any remaining polishing oils and dust.

Posted Image





We pulled a late night (till about 6am) working the wheels and doing the coating for the paint

Cleaning up the wheel wells, brakes, and suspension. Brake calipers were coated as well. Wheels were then reinstalled and torqued to factory spec.

Love these slim sun visors

Posted Image



Carbon Fiber style dash was a nice touch

Posted Image




Fantastic seats and panoramic roof

Posted Image




Center stack isn't really a stack, more like a touch-screen laptop. Super cool.

Posted Image




Touch of a button will adjust the suspension and ride height, and also put the vehicle in "Jack Mode" for safe wheel removal.

When you approach the car, the handles slide out from the body and require the lightest touch to open the doors. I love these.

Nice work Jeff! All the Tesla's I have done were much same as this one. Tesla's finish department isn't very good. The bra install was much the same as yours was also. Cars are pretty nice other than that. Crazy fast, lots of torque!
