There is a surprising amount of owners who come to us looking to restore a low mileage car that has hammered paint and then wanting a quality longterm solution for protecting and easing maintenance after the restoration. Our paint correction service is designed to permanently repair existing surface defects such as swirl marks, acid rain etching, bird dropping and bug marks and oxidation. But how does an owner maintain the corrected surface moving forward? Paint protection film, known as clear bra, and paint coating systems like CQuartz Finest provide that added protection along with previously unavailable ease of maintenance.
Our paint correction and restoration services will take your paint to a level that no dealership or other corner detail shops can reach. Between our extensive experience with paint correction, desire to produce the highest quality work without cut corners, the experience we offer owners of fine automobiles and exclusive services, Detailed Designs Auto Spa is the most qualified to restore and protect your automobile’s finish.
This 27,000 mile Porsche Panamera is another example of the quality we produce. It came in with extensive damage to the clear coat and left with amazing paint after experiencing our Gold package paint correction service. After restoring the paint, all panels except for the hatch(per the owner’s request) were wrapped with paint protection film (clear bra) and then coated with CQuartz Finest.
We invested over 55 hours into restoring just the paint with our Gold package. Now, it’s not common that paint correction takes this long to accomplish. The damage on this Panamera just so happened to be intense enough that we had to pour more than the usual amount of time into it.
The following shots of the project consist of befores, some half done shots(along with some pictures showing how we get our 50/50 shots) and some afters.

When we were finished with the clear bra installation, we applied 2 coatings of CQuartz Finest to all exterior painted and surfaces with clear bra installed. Since completing the project, the owner has returned to discuss maintenance and he is completely blown away with the ease of maintenance that CQuartz Finest gives him. We now have quite a few Atlanta Porsches rolling around with CQuartz Finest. Cquartz Finest certainly gives the depth, gloss and ease of maintenance that many are looking for.
The time between finishing the project, which took weeks, and the client showing up to pick up the Panamera was only a few hours of an afternoon. We didn’t have ideal lighting for the most amazing photographs. But we do feel that even with less than ideal photography conditions you can get an idea of how amazing this Porsche came out.
