Ceramic Pro once again returned to the Top Gear Festival Sydney on the 8th-9th March 2014 following the success from the first Top Gear Festival in 2013 where they displayed a stunning Lamborghini Performante at the Ceramic Pro marquee.
Not only was the Ceramic Pro Paint Protection Ferrari 360 F1 Challenge Stradale looking stunning and received a lot of compliments but there was a plethora of exotic supercars on display from Rolls Royce’s, Ferrari’s, McLaren’s, Lamborghini’s, Pagani and even a stunning Koenigsegg!
The Ceramic Pro Ferrari 360 F1 Challenge Stradale was prepared by Superior Shine, this wasn’t the only car at the Top Gear Festival that was detailed by Superior Shine or coated with Ceramic Pro, there was also a stunning Lamborghini Murcielago (BATM4N) and a unique Honda NSX at the Supercar Display and also a highly tuned Holden Grange from our good friends at Oztrack Tuning!
There is no doubt that this Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano is one stunning piece of machinery, designed with several objectives in mind, to increase driving pleasure, guarantee performance and to ensure comfort and safety. Named the 599 after its engine displacement and GTB short for Gran Turismo Berlinetta, and Fiorano after the famous private track Ferrari uses to hone its F1 and road cars.
This stunning red paint on this Ferrari unfortunately was full of swirl marks and contamination, a total of 14 man hours was spent on just the exterior alone of this vehicle, decontaminating the paint and removing heavy tar deposits, once the paint work was free of contamination multiple paint correction stages were used to correct the paint work to produce a stunning imperfection free finish.
Once the paint work was gleaming and exceeding what you would expect a Ferrari of this calibre to look like it was then coated and protected [...]

Recently we were called down to Melbourne to work on this brand new Maserati Granturismo MC Shift to give it a Stage One Machine Polish to remove minor swirl marks and to enhance the paint work, the paint correction was performed over 6 hours, once this was complete the paint work was thoroughly prepared with a alcohol based cleaner to remove any residue and then an application of Ceramic Pro Permanent Paint Protection was applied.

Whether you are buying a new car from a dealership or researching the best car protection product for your new or used car, you will have been told or read that the product will protect your paint from what seems like the impossible and is the best on the market, some of which are charging ridiculous prices in excess of $1500+, such as car dealerships to simply apply the product and provide you with a “Lifetime Warranty”.
Here at Superior Shine we see cars on a daily basis that have been prepared by dealerships and 90% of the time the quality of work is below standard with swirl marks, buffer trails and other paint imperfections remaining, even after they have applied their magic $1500+ paint protection!

Superior Shine had the pleasure of working on this stunning brand new $660,000 Lamborghini Performante which was put on display for Ceramic Pro at the 2013 Top Gear Festival event at the Sydney Motorsport Park.
Over 22 hours was spent meticulously Detailing and performing a multi-stage Paint Correction on this stunning exotic supercar before it was coated with Ceramic Pro Paint Protection. The solid black paint work on this Performante was extremely soft, whilst the paint work is completely flat which gives off a mirror image on the solid black it can be easily ruined though with marring and scratches which were easily induced due to the soft paint.
Now that it is protected with Ceramic Pro it now features a hard protective coating that is rated at “Above 9H” hardness which will help reduce marring and light scratching, and protect it from damaging contaminants whilst adding even further gloss to the paint work.
This Ferrari 458 is owned by a regular customer of ours who had just bought it second hand, it received an extensive detail ensuring all areas were meticulously detailed and a Stage One Paint Correction to enhance the paint work, it was then coated with Ceramic Pro 9H Permanent Paint Protection to protect the paint work from damaging contamination and minor scratches, the interior was also detailed and coated with Ceramic Pro Leather Protection.
Ceramic Pro a high gloss glass like coating that forms a permanent bond with the factory paint work like an additional layer of clear coat, it is a unique nano-ceramic formula that creates a barrier to protect your factory paint work from damaging contamination, it features a non-stick and super hydrophobic surface so water will bead up and simply roll straight off the car, keeping your car cleaner for longer and easier to wash as dirt will not stick and your [...]

Regularly washing your car is the first step to maintaining your car and a crucial part in keeping it in great condition over the long term to stop the build up of contamination.
Most imperfections like swirl marks, scratches, water spots are caused by incorrect washing and drying techniques, it is important to use quality products and use the correct technique to minimise this type of damage.
It is best to always start with the wheels, if you wash the paint first then you run the risk of the water drying on the car while you are washing the wheels which may cause water spotting.
1. Spray wheel with wheel cleaner / degreaser to break down any tough dirt and grime.
2. If you have an open spoke wheel it is best to use a quality wheel brush to clean inside the wheel.
