    Final Pictures



    The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is equipped with 'SS' 20 spoke wheels. This Super Sport's wheels
    were finished with a 'Diamond Cut' two-tone and perfected by Bella Macchina.



    The weave of the blue carbon glistened under the reflective finish of the finally polished lacquer.



    The highly polished lacquer and clear weave made the Bugatti appear alive when walked around.



    The gas fill cover, engine vents, and wheels were painted a bespoke blue at the factory and polished by Bella Macchina.



    With a top speed of over 265 miles per hour, the Bugatti's front end is the proverbial 'nuke' to insects all over the world.



    The swirl free sunlight reflections of highly polished and accurate paint.









    The underside of the rear wing was polished as well, resulting in the accurate reflection of the hydraulic mechanism that
    raises it (when traveling fast or 'armed'.)



    The combination of a highly polished lacquer, carbon blue weave, and an a curvaceous body make the Bugatti Veyron
    Super Sport stunning in bright light, at any angel.






    Chris Schlumpf, of Bugatti USA, a professional photographer as well, sent a couple pictures of the Bugatti after
    driving for several days








    Jet Reception Pictures- Immediately after detailing the Bugatti Veyron, Bryan Burnworth hoped on a plane to return home.
    I drove the Bugatti to the Jet Center Reception close bye were it was to be the star of the show.








    Final Picture-



    Special Thanks to:

    Bryan Burnworth- Peach State Detail, LLC- for flying down from Georgia, working 11 hours, and getting straight on a plane right after he finished. Up until the last minute we did think Bryan was going to make it. Then he showed up, grabbed the hose, and started spraying.

    Mike Pennington from Meguiar's- For recommending me for the job and setting the entire thing up. Thank you for the trust!

    Bob Willis- Auto Concierge and Richie Carbone- Richie's Custom Detailing- for volunteering to help out due to the time crunch. Unfortunately the Tampa International Airport was apparently pressuring Bugatti USA about having too many people walking around in a secured area. Irregardless the offer was awesome!

    Todd,

    Ill admit I wasnt familiar with your name. But ive seen this car over and over.

    I think it goes without saying that is stunning work you did to a BEAST of a machine.

    I want to say I absolutely LOVE your layout with the paint readings/CC diagram and just the overall display of the work is worthy of putting in a catalog. You can tell your level of detail is a bar we should all strive to meet!

    Todd. That carbon fiber tinted blue is flat out awesome. Very very nice.

    Your detailed measurements also ice the cake. How do you get the renderings? It's a great tool!

    Great car, excellent work! The color is truly stunning. Make no mistake, if people didn't know who you were they will after all those framed pictures.

    Thank you so much for the compliments; they are truly humbling! I try to set the bar for myself when I have time (which isn't always possible due to having way to much on my plate and being a family guy). Thank you for the appreciation!

    Thank you John. I built the renderings on Photoshop.

    I had to look at this amazing piece on the big screen computer. When looking at the measurements I noticed a .5 mil change. It is at the left wheel hip about 10 to 11 o'clock.
    What kind of defect did you have to fix? Just curious.
    Great work on an amazing sculpture of rolling art!

    To be honest I seriously doubt we came close to removing anywhere near .5 mils of paint in any spot. With paint measurements, moving the gauge even 1 cm can result in a huge measurement change since the adjacent area can have more or less paint then the area that you originally measured. However I wanted to be as honest as possible with the readings but include the disclaimer that 'paint readings are for general reference only'.

    That makes total sense. Without measuring out each location it would be hard to hit the exact same spot.
    Thanks.
