Log in to Reply Todd Cooperider on February 2, 2016 at 8:40 pm Thank you Mike…always appreciate your feedback and support. Well, we couldn’t have gone wrong with either selection between Kamikaze and Gyeon. For this project though, we decided to go the route that allowed us to feature one brand for all of the coating and protection needs and that’s what Gyeon provided. Once again though…both are excellent choices! Log in to Reply Jim Broyles on February 2, 2016 at 8:55 pm Todd….your Z06 is simply incredibly beautiful. All the hard work you put into this project has paid off for you. My Torch Red looks good, but no where near what yours looks like. Congratulations on a beautiful Z06 and an amazing job!!!! I hope you bring your Z06 to either Bloomington Gold or Corvettes at Carlisle this summer…I would love to see it. Log in to Reply Todd Cooperider on February 2, 2016 at 9:20 pm Thanks, Jim. It really turned out amazing, and we can’t wait to share it with people at shows and events this year.

Log in to Reply Axel Cortez on February 3, 2016 at 5:47 pm Hi Todd, Amazing car, amazing work. I have a question, at what point would you consider there is a diminishing return? I know we do this for the love of perfection, but there is a point where the gains are ineligible only consumes more product, time, etc. Also I love how you managed to bring into the game a quantification system, there is no subjective work anymore, you can back up and show your clients how much your work improved their car (I believe that is amazing) Thanks for teaching us. Log in to Reply Todd Cooperider on February 3, 2016 at 6:43 pm Thanks, Axel! Highline detailing, performance modifications (the horsepower chase), high-end stereos…all of them quickly get to the point of diminishing returns. But whether we are detailing our own cars, or selling detailing services, it’s all about what level we wish to take it to and how much we want to spend. Sure, you could spend twice as much to only get 10% more clarity, but if that’s the level that you (or the customer) want, then the price isn’t the issue. This is why we employ the Good / Better / Best system of services so that we can establish pricing relative to the results desired.

I am always impressed on the photos and the detailed step by step process that you discuss in your blogs that included new techniques and equipment. Thanks for educating detailers on a unique (Stand-alone) detail. Log in to Reply Todd Cooperider on February 5, 2016 at 11:22 am Thank you Brandon, and I’m glad to hear that you’re able to extract useful information from it! This one was definitely a huge project, both on the labor side and on the documentation side as well. Log in to Reply Don Barry on February 5, 2016 at 4:05 am Todd, now that you have done this, will there be a fourth lever-‘super best’ option for paint correction deatails? Log in to Reply Todd Cooperider on February 5, 2016 at 11:20 am This one definitely goes above and beyond what our normal “highest level” offers, so I suppose I’ll need to at least list something that says to inquire about higher level options! Log in to Reply Brian Martin on February 5, 2016 at 1:36 pm Hi Todd, Wow! Quite exceptional.You area real inspiration to us all.You have unbelievable patience when it comes to detailing.

I too hope that I get to spend plenty of time driving this beast! 🙂 Log in to Reply Mike lambert on February 6, 2016 at 8:54 pm Excellent video! Loved it! Log in to Reply Daren C. on February 7, 2016 at 11:53 am Amazing attention to detail . She should pick up a 10th in the 1/4 now from better aerodynamics 🙂 Stunning work Todd . Did you happen to use Cancoat as a topper or decided against it? Daren Log in to Reply Chris on September 15, 2016 at 6:22 pm Amazing job. I am waiting on delivery of a new NSX in Valencia Red from your part of the world. Do you know of anyone in my part of Canada (Winnipeg, Manitoba) that does excellent work? Also, have you worked on any of the 2017 NSX yet? Any comments on their paint quality? Log in to Reply Todd Cooperider on September 16, 2016 at 11:08 am Thank you and congrats on the NSX. We have worked on a lot of them…as a matter of fact…the very first in the world to work on them! Their paint is quite good for a factory finish as Acura puts a tremendous amount of effort into making sure they look better than other super cars. Unfortunately however, I do not have a recommendation for somebody up in your area. We are only 45 minutes from the NSX factory…if there’s a way to have your dealership arrange for it to come here, we’d be more than happy to get it taken care of for you! 🙂 Log in to Reply Chris on September 16, 2016 at 1:38 pm I wish I could have you detail it prior to shipping. Have you had any other buyers who have had their NSX worked on straight from the factory prior to shipping? I have asked about getting mine delivered to other areas in the US (since I expect their will be snow on the ground here by the time it is ready) and it isn’t possible….partly because I need to take possession in Canada first I think. Perhaps I will take a road trip in the spring to your area in the spring…will discuss off-line.
