Sometimes white paint is overlooked when it comes to gloss and finish because it’s really hard to see swirls and imperfections but when you put enough work into it and care for it the same way as darker coloured cars, it can shine pretty damn well too.
JC came over last weekend to apply Carpro Gliss over top of the already shining CQuartz UK 3.0. We initially only applied UK 3.0 and then topped off with Reload and other mixtures to maintain gloss and slickness and a few weeks later, we found out about Carpro Gliss. Essentially it’s a permanent version of Reload. Instead of re-applying Reload every few months, you just don’t even have to think about it with Gliss… It’s easier to apply, it flashes super fast and it’s easy to wipe off. The finish is slicker than Reload and it adds a lot more gloss than Reload… So in my books, it’s a winner and worth the extra time to apply.
One thing that we will continue doing is applying reload occasionally and continue detailing with our Merlin’s Majic Elixir to keep up the gloss and high slickness.
Just some quick pics of the finished results…
Really hard to capture how shiny and glossy white paint is in pictures…
Unfortunately I have to turn down highlights a bit so it doesn’t just look like you’re staring at the sun lol.
I’m super happy with how JC’s car turned out. We put a lot of hours into correcting the paint and ensuring we’ve gotten the highest gloss we could achieve. Doesn’t get much better than this…
Playing with some editing here to help with the crazy exposure lol
One of the newest additions are the TRD front lip additions. Minor but makes a big difference in the overall front end look.
Last shot of the front end. Perfection.
