    Hey guys, new here to the Hellcat forum. I was invited to show off some of the work I have done on a couple Hellcats we had come in recently. Hope you guys enjoy!

    I was contacted by the owner of this Hellcat for our Ultimate New Car Protection Package. This package includes a full paint correction, Xpel Ultimate film on the entire front end of car, Cquartz Finest over all exterior surfaces including the film, Interior Detail with CQuartz Leather, FlyByForte Extreme Window Coating and the wheels were removed to be cleaned and protected with Cquartz Finest as well.

    Pre-Inspection

    Very heavy brake dust on these cars.

    This particular car had a LOT of rail dust and contaminates embedded into the paint. A clay bar was used to remove the particles for a clean and smooth finish before polishing begins.

    Paint Correction

    Once the paint was prepped, I began hunting down the defects. There weren't many, but we wanted it to be absolutely perfect when finished.

    I found some sanding marks on the rear pillar, probably left from the factory.

    Xpel Ultimate Paint Protection Film

    For a cleaner install, we removed the Hellcat side badges and plastic scoop/vents from the hood. This will allow us to use one piece of film on the entire panel without any cuts.

    A single sheet was applied over the entire hood, the vents were cut out and all edges wrapped for a stealth install with no seams.

    A single sheet was also applied to both fenders, edges were also wrapped here.

    Interior

    The entire interior was cleaned and leather treated with CQuartz Leather Coating, to protect against spills, stains, accindental ink lines and jean transfer.

    Wheels Off Cquartz Finest Treatment

    Each wheel is removed, cleaned inside and out, then coated with Cquartz Finest to help with the brake dust and make cleaning easier for the owner.

    Once the wheels are complete, I turned my attention to the brake calipers that were equally as dirty. Each caliper was also coated with Cquartz Finest, which can withstand termperatures reaching over 800 degrees. The fender liners were dressed to top things off.

    Is that something that lasts or is it just a "wipe down" material? I ask because my RT is more of a show car but it still gets driven some. No matter how hard I try to clean it (no I don't necessarily take off the wheels) I always seem to get points taken off because of dirt in the wheel wells.

    If your not going to remove the wheels, I would actually recommend 303 Aerospace. Its a bit thinner, so it sprays better and bit more even. You can basically just spray it in your fender wells, let is sit for a second and then just go back with a crappy rag to get rid of the excess. Will give the same result as you see above, slight less shine, more of a natural "new" look. I do that every time I wash a car.

    Best place to get an accurate quote and find a qualified professional is at the link below. Cquartz Finest installers are all vetted pretty good before being allowed to carry the product. Any detailer you find on this map, you will be in good hands. You may have to call a couple guys to see if they offer the Xpel film.
