Oakes Detailed: Maserati GranTurismo - Grigio Goddess!A 2009 Maserati Granturismo came to me for a full corrective detail, as well as ceramic coating of the wheels and body using CQuartz. I previously detailed the owners last Maserati Quattroporte giving it the same treatment about a year ago.
The Grigio Granito is a stunning color for this Masi and the Giallo calipers really set it off! Without further aideu here are the photos of the paint condition before and after the process as well as the overall results of the detail. Enjoy! She really pops
Here is a rough 50/50 of the correction, being such a metallic paint it is hard to capture direct 50/50 photos. However, this should still give a general idea of the improvement!
Paint Condition post correction/pre ceramic coating
Here are the finished gloss photos of the car after ceramic was applied and allowed to cure. These photos were taken around 7am after the owner landed in Philadelphia to come pick her up and drive her home. Absolutely LOVE the depth of this color

Hey - finally getting to post on here!
Nick - great job on the correction... I couldn't be happier.
And yes, the rear fender gap is a JOKE! I took these wheels/tires off my old QP and the rear tire is undersized for the GT. I have since corrected and even upsized a bit - looks perfect now.
thanks again for the great service. I'll continue to bring my cars to you even though you are a couple hours away from me

Car looks great - awesome job with it.
What is the CQuartz ceramic coating? Not much of a detailing person, but that's something I hadn't heard of before

Hey Hokies. I'ts a "semi-permanent" wax type product. Has been popular in asian for awhile finally making its way here. It's like a super wax that lasts 2-5 years. It is really incredible. This is the 2nd car I've had it done to. Water just sheets right off, bird sh*t falls right off.... it makes it so its alot harder to swirl your paint as well.
look up c-quartz on youtube and you'll see alot of info on this.
I think the application of it is hard to do so do some research and get a trusted shop. Nick from Oakes has been doing it awhile and can provide some more feedback.
It's worth the money! I won't own another car without it
