    Windows and Wheels Auto Detailing, Dodge Hellcat's and CQuartz Finest just seem to go hand in hand.
    Its been just over 1 year now since our first detail and CQuartz Finest install on a Dodge Hellcat. Since then we've done a total of 11 Hellcats (and plenty of Scat Pack / Scat Pack Shakers as well).
    Being that we all have a love for sweet cars, I wanted to share some of a nicer photo's we've taken of some of the Hellcat's we've worked on.

    Enjoy!

    From our first Hellcat detail...pretty cool background:

    While we have done many colors, white has definitely been the most popular. After full correction and Finest - even white glowed.

    We've got them in black or white :wave:

    Owner of this Hellcat called it his "Bad *** family sedan" lol

    Most recently we did two Bright White Challengers - one with Brass Monkey Wheels, the other with matte black....both were pulled and coated with 2 coats of CQuartz Finest:

    Wheels back on - and coat #3 of CQuartz Finest being removed from the paint in our polishing room:

    The week after we completed the above Hellcat, another Hellcat.org member brought his in - they were basically twins

    A little sun down shot:

    Of course when it comes to black - we specialize in making it look flawless:

    [​IMG]


    This one came with quite a few defects (sanding marks mostly) from the factory:

    [​IMG]

    After full paint correction and polishing to a high gloss...it looked the way it should:

    [​IMG]

    This one was taken this past week - After a full year of daily driving - having us wash it Bi-Weekly make sure the paint still looked wet.

    We have also added on clear bra (paint protection film / ppf) to our list of services. Suntek being applied to protect the full front of this beast (hood,fenders,bumper,mirrors). This owner also added on a piece behind the rear wheels to protect from kick up...you know...incase he were to spin the tires :wave:

    We've also had the pleasure of working on the metallic black (also with brass monkey wheels!)

    When your paint looks this good - you have no reason not to Smile!

    [​IMG]


    Oh yeah!

    This is the only Plum Crazy Hellcat we've seen so far...this was after polishing to prep the paint for clear bra:

    [​IMG]


    Baking on CQuartz Finest to hard cure it and get that last bit of extra gloss:

    [​IMG]


    I think it worked - what do you think?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Of course as mentioned, all of these lovelies have been protected by the best, CQuartz Finest - the most exclusive paint protective coating around.

    [​IMG]


    As said in the title - it's been one hell of a ride working on all these beautiful beasts. We never get tired of hearing them roll down the street to (or from) our shop.
    Hope that everyone enjoyed the eye candy.

    We constantly update our Facebook ( www.facebook.com/windowsandwheels ) with new pictures of whatever we're working on that week if anyone cares to follow our
    fun journey. We also post up pictures and videos of detailing tips for those DIY'ers out there - gotta pay it forward!

    Thank you as always - feedback is always welcome (and encouraged).

    Take care all!

    Oh yes, we need to add a Sublime to the portfolio :). We are having an open house this coming Saturday from 6-9 PM at our shop and there will be quite a few Mopar owners attending. We'll have food, a DIY basic car care workshop and a raffle. You're more than welcome to come - we'd be glad to have you. I can PM you our shop info if you'd like (its also on our website.)

    The only real way to remove orange peel is to sand the paint unfortunately. Buffing (polishing) the paint removed the clear coat evenly where as with sanding it attacks the "peaks" in the paint (think of it like a mountain range) first and levels it all down to the same plane.

    The danger in doing this, especially with factory paint, is you only have a small amount of material to work with. Keep in mind that every area you sand, you then have to compound and polish, which removes additional clear coat. Its not too difficult to pop through the clear. At best I'd recommend orange peel "reduction" - but even then its extremely time consuming to do correctly and requires a lot of skill.
