Sargy's TRD Transformation.

Current pic of car will change with changes




Hello Everyone!
Over the course of the summer and fall I will be sharing my build on the JDM goodies I will be purchasing!

So far my need to be as clean as possible took over. Detailers Domain for example:

Detailer's Domain: Scion FRS - New Car Prep and Opti Coat/Clear Film Installation
Subject: Scion FRS
Requirements - New Car Prep - Opticoat - Clear Film Installation

I have to say these guys (FRS/BRZ owners) get it. They are all doing what's right for their new cars at an early stage in its life. New Car Prep the "RIGHT" way/Opti Coat/ and many now are opting for clear film. This is a great way to protect your investment.

Take a look at how I was given the this new one, wrapped from the factory plus 3m masking tape on areas not covered. Customer drove up from Virginia!!!

Subject - Scion FRS
Requirements - Full Exterior Paint Correction/Opti Coat/ Clear Film installation. (Full Hood, Full Fenders, Mirrors, Lights, Door Cups)

For a new car this one was in pretty bad shape. The typical sticky paint from the imports made this one tedious to work on
Exterior

- Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with Adam’s All Purpose Cleaner and washed down
- Wheel wells were cleaned up
- Washed with 1Z einszett W99
- Aquartz Iron Cut
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Nano Scrub AutoScrub
- Dried
- Tires dressed
- Masking
- Paint Measurement
- Sonax 5/5 Fine Abrasive Paste - Microfiber DA Cut Pad - Griots Orbital
- Opti Coat
- Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight
- Wheel wells were cleaned and dressed
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned
- Windows were autoscrubed, cleaned, and sealed

Wow, your car looks incredible after that detailing! It's so worth the money to get that done initially and then just keep it clean afterward!
