    Here is one from a great friend of mine who does awesome work in Atlanta.
    New Honda Civic Type R. Arrived w full front covered in film thanks to Atlanta Protective Films and Tint by Executive Tint.

    The rest of the paint was in horrible condition, brush washed by idiots at the dealership and sanding marks from the factory.

    David was kind enough to come down from Charlotte to help.

    Wheels/calipers received full ceramic coating.

    Paint received full paint correction. Paint/film received long term ceramic coating.

    My friend who detail it inform me it was a total mess. Now the owner would be able to maintain this finish for a long time.

    This makes me even more nervous while I wait on my 2018 Civic to arrive! Hoping to intercept it before a dealer washes it!

    Great looking results on the correction...my last two vehicles were black so i can commiserate. One was a Ford Raptor and it was impossible to keep clean!

    But that CTR looks great in black!

    It is always best to try and receive a car untouched by the dealer with the shipping wrap and everything still on the car, however in many cases people are buying cars that have been sitting on the lot and exposed to numerous improper washes. Typically a dealer will just glaze over this stuff when prepped for delivery so the vehicle will look nearly flawless, however after a few good rainfalls or washes the true condition will start to come out. I see this quite a bit, and always recommend to clients to receive their vehicles unprepped.

    The car turned out nice though, he did a good job on it.

    What area of NC are you in? I know a few guys down there that do top notch work that I could put you in touch with. Take a look on this website, if any of these guys are near you they all do high quality work.

    There are a few good ones not too far from you. Take a look on the CQFinest website, and both Mike or Johnathon should be able to take care of you and provide high quality work.

    I'm a retired detailer/retired Military who still works full time. I do keep up with the products out there. I started in around 1970 working on paint corrections. I know alot of detailers around the country but they are so many of them and I always tell folks to check their work with prior customers before letting anyone work on their cars.
