When it comes to getting fine automobiles buttoned up for a life on the public roads or the race circuit for DE’s, Detailed Designs Auto Spa has the paint protection film and window tinting solutions your car deserves. We service metro-Atlanta’s fine automobiles by providing long term protection solutions.

This Ultra Violet Porsche GT3RS is a new acquisition of one of our loyal clients (You may recognize his M4 GTS we performed a track package on zipping around Atlanta Motorsports Park).  He knows that PPF is no longer an option for a modern fine automobile, it’s a necessity and so it came to us with 32 miles on the odometer. We installed our track package paint protection film coverage option and protected the interior from harmful UV radiation and heat with our 33%(metered to a legal 32% when installed) Ceraluxe ceramic window tint.

Now she looks incredible with the darker glass and is protected from the harsh realities of “life on the streets” (hah!).

Thanks for looking!

BMW M4 GTS Visits us from Charlotte, NC. for a Full Body Clear Bra Wrap

When world famous Instagram account owner, Carnucopia, gave us a call a few months ago to learn about how to protect a new BMW M4 GTS that he was taking delivery of, we were pleased to educate him on the different forms of protection. In the end, he decided that nothing less than a full body clear bra wrap would do for his baby.

Once the M4 GTS had a scheduled delivery date we set a convenient time for us to travel to his house in Charlotte, NC. to transport his M4 GTS back to our shop on the outskirts of Atlanta to perform our full body clear bra wrap.

Part of the process involved removal of door handles, emblems, rear wing, front fender vents, front grills(kidneys as bimmer owner’s refer to them), all bumper tow hook covers, roof rails and then also properly washing, decontaminating and then performing a single stage polish as prep.

The end result was a full body clear bra wrap that left Carnucopia with a peace of mind to be able to enjoy his rare BMW on the streets and track.

Top 3 Mistakes Detailers Make When Performing Paint Correction

Top 3 Mistakes Detailers Make When Performing Paint Correction

Paint correction is a process of eliminating surface defects on automotive paints. The purpose is to leave a car’s paint looking incredibly deep and lustrous while permanently removing scratches and light surface defects in the clear coat. Paint correction is all about the actual repair of the clear coat(top layer of paint) surface. Today you’ll briefly learn the top 3 mistakes paint correction professionals make when correcting automotive paints.

1.Not decontaminating thoroughly enough

Paint correction is technically about permanently fixing existing surface defects** such as swirl marks, scratches and holograms(AKA buffer trails). When performing paint correction, steps should be taken to thoroughly remove oils, lubricants and other substances that naturally “fill” the paint. These substances are, by default, a part of the repair process. Without them, polishes and compounds will only cause intensive damage. At the same time, without thoroughly removing these residues, a paint’s surface is artificially filled, or, enhanced. It will look nice enough for a little while but will eventually wash out leaving you with the defects the paint correction was intended to remove. In short, not decontaminating properly equates to incompetent masking of defects that will show up later. Not only does it fool the car’s owner but it also gives a false sense of completeness to the professional performing the paint correction.

the right way to correct paint

2.Not performing enough steps

When it comes to paint correction, one can think of it in similar terms of making marginal improvements when going from one product and pad combination to the next. With too few corrective steps on a more intensively damaged surface, you lose refinement, gloss and luster. Modern products have advanced what’s possible with fewer steps a long ways from even 5 years ago. But there is still no replacement for a thoroughly planned and executed paint correction process that utilizes progressively finer product and pad combinations without filling. Products specifically designed to fill and products not thoroughly decontaminated need not argue point #2….

3.Not giving lower sections and more difficult areas enough attention

Ergonomically speaking, the lower parts and more difficult parts of a car are a real pain to work on. Coupled with these areas requiring more time to get just right, many paint correction professionals choose to give them a little less attention. The end product in this case is not an ideally produced product and to a discerning eye, it will leave them feeling shorted. Paint correction is not about an easy buck….at least it shouldn’t be. It is a highly skilled craft and requires patience and genuine care. When it comes to a real paint correction expert, the devil’s in the details and these areas will not be neglected.

There you have it, my top 3 mistakes for paint correction professionals. Now that you are armed with more information, how do you locate a qualified paint correction specialist in your area? If you’re in the metro-Atlanta area, you can call my shop, Detailed Designs Auto Spa and schedule a consultation to learn what options are available to you. If you are in another area, I would urge you to do a Google search for “Paint Correction [City of Interest]”. This should net you a number of results. Speaking with the professionals in your area should start to give you an idea of what is available and how these shops do business. Of course, looking up the reviews left for businesses will give you some insight but there is no substitute for speaking with someone and learning more about them and the vision for each client’s car.

Thanks for taking the time to read this and look out for our next piece that should be released in the very near future!


**Existing defects are supposed to be repaired with paint correction but it does not mean an owner can not create new defects through wear and tear or neglect in the future. Ongoing proper care ensures a corrected surface stays looking incredible.

3 Reasons why you should have clear bra installed on your new car

Clear Bra Installation in Atlanta

1. Clear bra keeps your car looking great while you own/enjoy it!

We buy cars for a few reasons. Probably the biggest is because we like how it looks and the fact it is *new* to us. Anything we can do to keeping the car looking as close to new as possible will allow you to keep loving it like it is new. Clear bra wears much better than hard clear coat does and is the pinnacle of paint protection. It stops rock chips, protects the paint from scratches and protects against vandalism**. Because it is pliable, it does not pit as severely as paint does. Many clear bras also have self-healing properties that keep them swirl mark-free, which is more than any paint can do!

clear bra cleans like paint

2. Clear bra is invisible protection that cleans up like paint!

When clear bra is installed by an expert, you can’t tell it’s on the car and clear bra is cleaned just like paint. With a quality installation, exposed edges of panels are wrapped in a way that greatly limits seams and when walking around the car, you won’t be able to tell anything is on the car at all! And clear bra is cleaned very similar to paint. It is washed and cleaned with paint-safe chemicals, wash mitts and microfiber drying towels. Clear bras with top coats are easy to clean when properly maintained.

clear bra is a great return on investment

3. Clear bra protects your car so that you can recover the most money when you sell it and it sells faster!

It is a fact that used cars that look better, sell for more and sell faster than an alternative car in poorer condition. When selling your car after years of clear bra protection, you may leave the clear bra on and sell the car that way or you may choose to remove it and have just fresh paint to entice a new potential owner. Either way, the fact clear bra was on the car carries an intrinsic value with new owners. It shows you were willing to spend the money to protect the car and the proof will be in the pudding; the car looks awesome!

Now you have a better understanding of clear bra and no doubt want it installed on your new car! What’s next? If you’re in the metro-Atlanta area, the next step is to call Detailed Designs Auto Spa! We are happy to discuss your protection needs and give you an incredible installation that your friends will never know is there! Protect your new baby as soon as possible! Each rock chip brings you one step closer to you falling out of love with your new car!

**A large enough rock thrown at a high enough velocity may penetrate the film and with enough time and effort, a vandal can cause damage to the substrate. While nothing is invincible, clear bra is as close as it gets for paint.

Clear bra technology installed with an awesome customer experience & undeniably amazing results. Only a short drive from Atlanta!

No doubt you only want the best for your car! The idea of it being beaten up from rock chips, pitting, scratches, vandalism and other forms of damage make all of us a bit ill. Clear bra technology is a clear urethane film that is installed on exterior painted surfaces of cars designed to take impacts that typically cause damage. Clear bra can be installed on any section of a car that you feel merits protection. We have wrapped many front ends that are exposed to rock chips as well as FULL car wraps! A full car wrap is the ultimate in peace of mind for anyone wishing to keep their new car as close to new as possible!
