Porsche GT3 Xpel Ultimate, Ceramic Coating and Paint Correction – San Diego, CA

A recently acquired GT3 for one of our very good clients came in for a mini restoration and thorough protection. He’s a passionate Porsche collector which is always exciting for us to work with our clients that share the same passion and excitement about their vehicles as we do.

Main issues were a weathered clear bra that needed removal and re application as it was installed in the early 2000’s with older technology film (Lots of distortion, Not Self Healing, etc.). This process took several hours as it would chip away in many small pieces, todays technology won’t crack and fade overtime like this, but always proper care and maintenance is key.

Other issues were the paint condition, owner noted many swirl marks and light scratching throughout. This is very common especially for a vehicle of this caliber and age, oftentimes previous owners “love” their cars a little too much and this leads to them unknowingly causing some damage, but thankfully we are able to safely and effectively restore the paint back to better than new.

Finally, once the car has been prepped, clear bra’d and the paint surface brought back to near perfection the next step is proper protection. Wax and sealants offer good protection and they are better than leaving the paint bare. But, they are made of organic components and thus will weather and wear away fairly quickly from the paint surface resulting in weak durability, protection and will require consistent re-application. Modesta’s line up of 100% in-organic nano glass coatings is a fantastic solution for protecting the paint work from the rigors of street or track driving. It bonds to form a thick and hard glass membrane on top of the clear coat which will not wear away like a wax or sealant would, offering stunning reflections and protection for up to 10 years.




After removal of the weathered partial clear bra kit, we corrected the rest of the front end. As you can see the clear bra did a great job of keeping the paint surface underneath in “Like new” condition. Unfortunately since it was only a partial kit, this meant the area without this protection took the full brunt of the elements and weathered unevenly. This required heavy compounding to recondition the surface before application of a full frontal coverage. We don’t typically recommend partial coverage for this very reason, in addition with a full frontal coverage you don’t get an unsightly line or risk paint damage above where the film starts.

Clear bra installation followed with complete coverage of the hood, fenders and front bumper.

We remove the headlights to wrap inside the edge, we custom wrap*the gas cap cover to wrap inside for a seamless and virtually invisible installation. We wrap edges inside the fenders near the A-Pillars, inside the fenders near the door and everywhere else possible. We even remove the Porsche badge to wrap underneath, its the little things that take an otherwise good installation to the next level and what separates us from the rest.



After installation we pull the vehicle outside to check everything and to allow the film to cure.





After clear bra installation our Level 2 paint correction process followed, as you can see there are various defects needing proper removal.





Paint measurements are always taken prior to polishing to ensure healthy paint levels. The paint read a little lower than we would have liked to see, so we had to take a slightly less aggressive process to ensure we don’t remove as much material to preserve the life of the paint for many years to come. This is also why clear bra and Modesta coatings are so crucial as they add measurable thickness in the form of durable protection to shield the paint from the elements.


Areas with clear bra read significantly higher!


Checking our correction level with LED lights.










After correction and final polishing the vehicle is cleaned using a gentle alcohol based cleanser in preparation for Modesta’s P-01A Primer coating application. This is the first layer of three that comprises the entire glass membrane, this alone adds up to 10 Microns to the paint surface.

The stunning reflections already show through after just Modesta P-01a application.


After Modesta P-01a is left to cure overnight, Modesta BC-04 Nano Titanium glass coating is applied. We then use Infrared Cure lamps to properly bond the coating to the paint surface.


Finally the car is now protected and ready to hit the streets, every surface is now cleaned, reconditioned and protected.

Porsche GT3RS Xpel PPF Full Car Wrap – Adonis Paint Protection, San Diego, CA

One of the most sought after 911’s recently has been the 991 GT3RS. The performance and hype around this car are larger than life. We at Adonis Detail had the privilege of working on a gorgeous Lava Orange GT3RS recently.

The owner trailored the car to us to work its magic. Many of our clients go this route, even before they get the opportunity to drive the vehicle! This reduces the risk of any potential damage occurring prior to the clear bra and nano coating applications.


Services Performed:
-Level 1 polish to brighten paintwork and prep for clear bra application
-Moderate full body wrap in Xpel Ultimate protection film
-Nano coating application to full body, wheels and interior surfaces
-ClearPlex windshield protection


GT3RS prepped for wash/decon process


Xpel software template design process

Wash/Decon process to prep for clear bra application throughout. This step is crucial in order to ensure a clean and consistent installation.



Clear bra installation begins working from the top down, first order was protecting the rear wing.


Mirrors are done in one piece custom, this ensure the maximum coverage possible without a visible seam.


Hood is done custom as well, this way we are able to further extend coverage to wrap edges and corners how we see best fit.


Edge wrapped and trimmed precisely.







Although the Xpel software does a great job with its template designs. We decided the best fit for the RS fenders would be a custom installation. This will allow us to fully wrap inside the fender vents and gas cap are for a seamless appearance and maximum coverage.


Film installed and precisely trimmed and wrapped for maximum coverage and no exposed edges.




Headlight surround edge wrapped and trimmed uniformly throughout. A proper film installation should look good even where you’ll never look!



Bumper coverage we opted to utilize the Xpel designs with numerous design changes we made. This allows us to extend edges and coverage areas.



One of our signatures is the tow hook, we take this opportunity to custom trim and wrap the film into the tow hook opening and around the tow hook itself. This gives maximum coverage and no visible edges.




Rear bumper installation, we opted to install the film over the OEM decals thus ensuring 100% OEM appearance.



Filmed installed and edges all heat sealed.

Tesla Model S Echelon PRO Ceramic Coating – San Diego, CA

The absolute best time to protect your Model S is before any damage occurs. Although it is never to late to apply protection solutions to your vehicle our philosophy is prevention rather than repair. The Model S is designed to be driven, and thus will be susceptible to various weathering. Ceramic coatings are a great way to add peace of mind as well as add significant protection to all the surfaces of the vehicle.
Our client Chris, contacted us upon doing some research on the best solutions for his brand new 85D Model S. After several discussions and extensive research we landed on our Echelon PRO Ceramic Coatings as the best fit for his vehicle.
The coating process for new vehicles is oftentimes much less extensive than needed for used vehicles. This is once again due to bare surfaces being much more susceptible to accumulating defects, swirl marks and contaminants.
Our process starts with a thorough decontamination.
Wheels are thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated

The paint surface is then taken through a gentle hand wash process. During this process any loose debris is gently cleaned using lambswool mitts and gentle degreasers.

After the initial decontamination, the vehicle is chemical decontaminated with an industrial fallout remover. This process removes any ferrous contaminants that embed themselves into the paint surfaces. The key to proper bonding of ANY coating is ensuring the paint surface is perfectly clean and defect free.

Here you can see the chemical reaction to the iron contaminants found in the paint surface. This Model S had less than 100 miles on the clock and still showed a good amount of embedded contaminants.

Modesta is unlike other coatings solutions in that it is applied in different layers. The first being an Ceramic based coating polish. This product is polished on and left to cure for 12h before the glass membrane is applied.

After this process Echelon PRO is applied using a wet application method. Due to the extreme hardness of this coating product, water is used during application and removal in order to aid the application process.
Applicators and microfiber towels used during this process have to be thrown away as they will crystalize and harden due to the purity and hardness of the coating.

Infrared lamps are then used to bake the coating at 130-50*F for 15 min. This increases both the hardness and durability of the coating by further bonding it to the paint surface.

Then, after curing overnight the vehicle is prepped and ready for delivery after attending to the wheels and various other details.

Please contact me regarding your Model S or any questions you may have. We offer many different protection solutions, Echelon PRO being one of our top Ceramic Coating options.
Ceramic Coatings are not for everyone but we can find a solution that best fits you and your vehicle needs.

Why Does The Roof of My Tesla Appear Orange-Red?

You may have noticed that during particular times the roof and back window of your Tesla Model 3, S or X may appear “Burnt”. Like it has an orange or red glow to it that is not normally apparent during the day time.

The answer to this phenomena maybe simpler than you think!
Tesla Model 3 Exhibiting “Rainbow Glass” effect

Here is a GREAT example of the commonly referred to “fire glass”, in this v

Tesla Motors is leading the industry with their vehicles by designing large open glass panels to give the interior cabin an expansive feel. The glass adds great visibility and gives the interior a feeling of spaciousness. The downside of this is potential UV rays and Infrared heat intrusion into the interior surfaces leading to premature aging and fading of the leather seats and dashboard.

Teslas ingenious fix fo this is a proprietary “Infrared Rejection Coating”. This Orange-Red color is actually a reflection of the proprietary Infrared layer Tesla builds into its glass systems designed to both stop heat and UV rays from entering the interior space, Cool!

You can also see this on a Model X here

This is especially important for an electric car like the Model 3 because if the interior is hotter due to the glass roof, you’re more likely to run the air conditioning longer, and that’s just more drain on the battery and less electric range for driving. According to a European glass trade association, this type of layered glass, designed to reduce cabin heat, can improve a vehicle’s overall efficiency by 2 to 4 percent.

The reason that this orangey-red finish is visible under some circumstances only is the ability for us to perceive the infrared wavelength. Our eyes operate mostly within the visible light spectrum and are not able to see these wavelengths except for when they’re reflected to us in a visible form, such as within a water droplet. This is why this Orange/Red phenomena on Tesla’s vehicles is only visible in the late evening or early mornings when there is visible Dew on the glass, or after a car wash or a rain storm.

Even though Tesla’s engineers have found ways to help reduce interior cabin temperatures with this neat, high tech glass coatings. There are still technologies available that further increase the heat rejection and UV rejection possible for your Tesla’s glass surfaces. A high performance window film like Spectra Photosync IRD is designed to block up to 99% of the incoming Infrared Heat and 100% of damaging UV rays. This is a big improvement on top of Tesla’s own coating.

In addition, Tesla has recently only started to utilize its proprietary infrared coating on only part of the Rear windows of the Tesla Model 3 and part of the Windshield on the Tesla Model X. Some forum posts have even reported that recent Tesla’s have come without this coating entirely!
