I confess, I’m a guy with way too many hobbies, and perhaps uninterestingly, driving happens to be one of them. So just over a year ago, I sold my beloved Toyota MR2 after owning it for over a decade, bit the bullet and bought the car I’ve always wanted – a Lotus, then still owned by Proton.
I’ve driven the car to Bentong, Genting, and Cameron Highlands. It’s a little car that loves hugging the corner. Light, nimble, and extremely unfriendly to older ladies with weak knees. Which is why my mom hasn’t want to sit in it, even though the car’s photo serves as her WhatsApp profile photo.
Anyway.. lest I digress. Today I actually want to talk about Ceramic Pro Nano Coating.
See, the car was actually manufactured back in 2010, and as it’s been some 9 years since rolling out of the factory floor, there’re some signs of blemishes and imperfections on the paint as well as interior. While I did send the car for detailing once and waxed it myself a couple times, this was the first time she’s treated with a proper coating.
In this case, the Ceramic Pro Permanent Nano-Ceramic Coating Gold Package.
The procedure takes pretty much a whole day, I dropped off my car on a Sunday evening and let them work on it over the next day. So what was done to the car?
Well, as I can understand, it’s the following:
- first, the car is thoroughly washed both inside and out
- clay bar decontamination is then done
- paint correction goes next, which includes a 3-step polishing
- window glass coating goes next, with plastic & rubber after
- headlight is treated (they essentially renewed my dull-ish headlights too)
- chrome trims, wheels & brake calipers goes next
- then it’s the full interior & exterior coating, in this package, 6 layers of nanoceramic coating for the exterior to give it that shine and protection
- Then the car is cured under IR lights to seal in the coating
Additionally, they also applied the Magnus Pro Protection films on the headlight to prevent and cloudiness & stone chips.
I really like it that throughout the entire process, the representative kept me updated with photos of any imperfections as well as the step by step progress of what was being done to the car. This was after explaining to me the different products being used here when I dropped the car off. Impressive service, and super informative.
The coating is also protected with a 7 year warranty. If it shows signs of wear (not hydrophobic anymore, for example), they’ll fix it. If you have a minor accident and changed a door, for example, they’ll coat that door for you with no additional charge thereafter.
I have to admit that I didn’t know this 9 year old car can look so good after a proper coating job. It was something that I used to think of as a “waste of money” or “why not just repaint it”, but the results speak for itself, I am convinced.
