Ya’ll, this truck is absolutely gorgeous. I mean, it’s new so it was already really clean and pretty, but by the time Kenny and the guys got done with it–MMMMMMMMMMM! So slick and shiny! AND it was done in our Med Center location, inside the Vintage Auto Haus at 8201 W. Amarillo Blvd.
Again, it came in new, so paint correction was minimal. Ya’ll, this one was in good condition, but don’t let the dealerships fool you: damage happens to new cars BEFORE YOU GET THEM! Your brand new, off-the-lot baby might have been dinged by a rock as it was pulled on a traincar, scraped on a side while being loaded into the car carrier, backed into in the new car lot, or skinned up because people are just careless. Remember my post about bug etching the paint? Very common in new cars that have been transported.
All that to say, look your new ride over closely. Look for mismatched paint or that weird waviness when Bondo doesn’t get to dry all the way. Get a little distance from the car, lean over, and make sure the wheels line up front to back. Dealership body shops can be really good and your car really is as good as new. Others take shortcuts because people just expect a new car to be perfect and just don’t look all that closely. Trust your dealership, but verify your vehicle’s condition. We are really lucky in Amarillo–our dealerships are really very transparent on things like this.
Okay, enough of that. THIS truck was beautiful to start with. It was detailed to make sure it was spotless inside and out, then ceramic coated and allowed to cure for 24 hours. Ceramic coating provides the best protection currently available for your clearcoat and paint. And check out this INTERIOR!!! WOW!
Ceramic coating acts as a “sacrificial layer” to protect the finish of the layers underneath and helps keep things (mud, dirt, road grime, bugs, even gum) from sticking to the surface and scarring the paint. The interior ceramic coating that is just as amazing and protects your seats and carpet from the spills and spots of everyday life.
Thank you, Chris Jones for letting us work on this one!
