What makes this 2008 Ferrari F430 special ?
This is a really amazing automobile. The name itself is a represents a brand and company that is known worldwide for its iconic racing heritage. Ferrari is also known as a world class exotic automobile manufacturer. Ferrari has become the automobile manufacturer that most other companies end up copying their designs.
This is a privilege. Ferrari has had a long storied racing history for as long as I can remember. My client needed to have his 2008 Ferrari F430 taken care of and maintained. My client had been looking for a detailer for quite some time that would do the job he was asking for without giving him any grief. He had his office manager call me to go over everything that he wanted done on a regular basis. After she and I spoke, it was very evident that the work performed by some of the detailers in Ocala leaves a lot to be desired.
Areas of concern on this 2008 Ferrari F430
Although this is a 2008 Ferrari F430, it is very close to being a brand new car. It has 8600 miles on it. However it had some micro marring – which is light scratches in the paint. It also had some micro-marring and yellowing in the Paint Protection Film. The good news is, with this being a normal high gloss paint, it can be repaired. This happens from the car being washed with a pressure washer and then being wiped down with the same towel they have used on several other cars on the lot. This process creates scratches.
How to Fix the Problems
Fortunately, most of the problems discussed in the previous paragraph are repairable. The micro marring in the paint required time consuming slow/ methodical polishing to remove the damage to the paint. Repairing the Paint Protection Film however, is another matter. The yellowing in the Paint Protection Film happens over time and being exposed to the elements for long durations of time. In order to restore the color and clarity of the film it must be polished with a lot of polish and constantly wetting the surface down to keep it cool. The PPF is basically a plastic film that is covering the car. When you heat plastic up it melts. Polishing PPF is a very long process that requires a use of a rotary machine and a light cut wool pad.
Opti-Coat Hyper Seal hybrid ceramic coating was the work performed on the 2008 Ferrari F430
My client took some time and thought about what he wanted to be done. He first wanted to have the paint and the film fixed. Then he decided to go with my Opti-Coat Hyper Seal. This package is a great value because it offers a hybrid ceramic protection for one year. It allows you to evaluate the performance of a ceramic coating for one year at a fraction of the cost.
