    2018 Tesla Model S P100D

    2018 Tesla Model S P100D
    Midnight Silver Metallic
    21” black arachnid wheels
    0-60 in 2.5 seconds(!)


    My client just purchased this new Tesla to replace a previous one. I am slowly but surely coating all of his vehicles.

    Paint was in ‘as new’ shape, which means, full of orange peel, solvent pop, dirt nibs, water spots, marring, etc. A shame their quality control is not very good in the fit and finish department.

    It was also covered top to bottom, front to back in artillery fungus! Oh, what fun!

    I corrected it, glossed it up and coated this electric Q-ship up!!!

    It was delivered with the incorrect wheel/tire combo. It has 19”s on it now. Tesla delivered the proper wheels (the unicorn of the Tesla world, they are that difficult to find/get) to me and I cleaned and coated them prior to installing them.





    Process/products/machines/etc:

    McKee’s37 Iron Remover.
    Washed with Adam’s Shampoo.
    Clayed with Griot’s Medium Mitt.
    Clayed with Meg’s Aggressive Clay to remove remaining artillery fungus.
    DeFelsko PTG.
    ScanGrip Lighting.
    Flex XFE15, Rupes 3”, Rupes iBrid.
    Misc. Foam pads.
    Misc. MF towels.
    Griot’s Fast Correcting Cream.
    Griot’s Perfecting Cream.
    22ple Mistico Elemento Forte was the LSP.
    22ple VM1 was used on the wheels and calipers.
    Adam’s Glass Cleaner.
    Metro vacuum.
    McKee’s37 Quick Interior Cleaner.
    McKee’s37 Interior Surface Protectant.
    McKee’s37 tire dressing.
    Adam’s Tire and Rubber cleaner.
    Optimum Paint Prep for final wipe downs.

    Looks awesome! While Tesla is a great car, the quality just is not there. This is an 85-S I detailed a few weeks ago after it had some body work done at a Tesla dealer after a slight mishap. 4 months to get a new fender for it. Anything wrong with this pic? If they can get the QC right, the'll be a contender.....but not seeing it yet...

    Scott, that Megs Wash Plus+ powerscrub-like wash soap does a really good job removing/killing the artillery fungus during your pre washes. Perhaps it is the TSP in the wash that does the job.

    Amazing work Sizzle... I've yet to touch a Tesla... I quoted one last year and the PTG readings made me jump out of my boots! Barely any paint to work with.

    @Firehouse - Is that a new Telsa color scheme? I feel bad for your client.
