As no two vehicles are alike, there is no standard list of tasks that adequately describes everything required for a supercar or cherished vehicle to graduate Summa Cum Laude. However, as a bare minimum, over 50 hours of work will take place across at least 7 days. Every surface (both inside and out) will be thoroughly inspected, assessed, cleaned, polished and protected. The paint on each body panel will be measured up to 100 times with either an ultrasonic or Ruby-tipped Eddy Current gauge prior to (and throughout) removal of swirl marks and fine scratches. This is achieved by as many as 4 stages of machine polishing, using the finest, imported compounds and polishes. Deeper scratches are removed by first by wet-sanding the effected panel. In short, we will do whatever is necessary in the pursuit of perfection (without resorting to replacing parts or re-painting). Once the paint is polished to a jewel-like finish, the vehicle will be protected by a minimum of 3 separate applications of one of the most sought-after Carnauba waxes on the planet - "Vintage" by Zymol. Vintage Glaze is applied by many "Best of Show" winners on the US Concourse circuit and it is priced in the thousands of US Dollars. At Prestige Finishing School, Vintage is only available as part of a Summa Cum Laude detail - adding beauty, depth and the ultimate protection for your investment.
