A local client from Palmerton, PA, recently purchased this 2017 Ford F-450 Platinum. He wanted the truck to look and feel like new, so he wanted to protect the exterior from the elements and make it easy to keep it clean.
Since the vehicle is not used regularly and is kept in a garage, we recommended the Ceramic Pro Sport Package. In addition, we performed odor elimination on the interior and did a complete interior detail, including leather cleaning and conditioning. The customer also requested that we remove the factory 4×4 decals on the quarter panels.
The client also asked us to touch up stone chips on the front bumper before installing the coating. We were glad to perform this service with the customer providing touch up paint.
While inspecting the truck during the estimate, we noticed a significant amount of iron fallout causing rusty-looking spots on the paint surface. This was not a problem because the Ceramic Pro Package he chose included clay bar decontamination of the paint, which removed the iron spots.
After we touched up the truck, removed decals and decontaminated the vehicle, we installed the Ceramic Pro coating. We left it in the bay for the paint to cure for 24 hours before returning the vehicle to the client. As you can see in the photos, the end result was a smooth, glossy finish that will outlast any sealant or wax.
