After seeing the finished boat, we offered the owner the opportunity to bring his boat to Autogeek where they could re-sand, compound, polish and then install a ceramic coating to give the boat a show car or show boat finish while making it faster and easier to wash, clean and preserve the boat into the future.

After the LIVE detailing class - Royce and I applied 3 applications of the 3D Ceramic Coating.

Coating the outside is a cake walk compared to coating the inside. One thing for sure she’s going to be the shiniest coat on the water.
