Alpine A110 Opticoat pro and PPF

This is the first in a run of larger protection jobs. And one of the first cars in the country to be detailed.

The car was dropped off, with some of the factory protection still installed, so I had a real fresh base to go at

After a through wash and decontamination routine, it was placed in the surgery for work to begin

First job was to polish the car to get rid of any factory installed swirls and holograms etc. For this I used Optimum hyper polish as I would be using their coatings

Then the ppf was applied, full front end for this car, which consists of bumper, bonnet, wings, mirror housings and a pillars. As you will see, you simply can not see it was applied (which is the ultimate goal)

While that was going on I was able to start the wheels, the were removed, cleaned and coated, as were the hubs and callipers

Next the glass was polished using hyper polish also, the optiglass pro was applied

Opticoat pro to the remaining bodywork

The matts were coated and placed in the front trunk for the owner to install later on

And with that, the car was complete. Time for some afters of this very quirky little car
