This 2012 example finished in Nero Daytona Black was required to look its best for a forthcoming run down to Monaco and was subsequently booked in for a 1-Stage Gloss Enhancement. Once clean, the car was appraised, paint depth readings taken and recorded. The single stage correction was carried out with RUPES LHR75E Mini and LHR 15 Mark III machines both using Menzerna 2500 Medium Cut Polish on FLEX Medium Polishing Pads.

All surfaces were treated with Nanolex EX residue remover prior to the application of the final sealant. Kamikaze Collection ENREI Coat delivers superior protection, its performance lies not only in its engineering but also in the application method. For both No.1 Base Coat Primer and No.2 Top Coat, Kamikaze Collection spent hours researching and testing different ways of applying the layers to ensure optimum results. Ambient air temperature and humidity also have to be kept within certain levels and the coatings must be allowed to remain in those conditions until they have cured. ENREI is available only as a service through the Kamikaze Collection trained and certified detailer network.

The gloss black wheels Kamikaze Collection Stance was applied. Using state-of-the-art technology, Stance Rim Coat combines unique components that, once cured, form a slick, heat resistant barrier that repels water, dirt, oils and grime as well as inhibiting the build-up of brake dust. Treated rims maintain gloss and are easier to clean during the weekly wash.

Final Finish Products Used:
Kamikaze Collection Enrei Coat (durability guaranteed for 60,000 miles) 
Kamikaze Collection STANCE Rim Coat
Nanolex ULTRA Glass Sealant
