2016 Cirrus SR22 GTS Turbo Platinum
We traveled to Howell, MI to perfect the paint on this gorgeous Cirrus SR22 and protect it with a very long lasting ceramic coating.
Per usual, we started with a thorough wash and belly degrease to prepare the surface for paint correction. The owner had obtained some matching touch up paint so we could take care of a deep scratch on the nose wheel fairing.
Our field repair wasn’t 100% perfect, but enough to keep your eye from getting drawn to the defect
Although the aircraft was in pretty good shape, there were still a number of imperfections on the paint that were keeping this Cirrus from being as glossy as possible. Notice on the right half how my headlamp reflects clean, but on the left it is diffracted and hazy. Paint correction enhances the surface before we protect with the ceramic coating that ultimately gives it its ease of washing and long-term protection.
I didn’t get the usual number of before and after pictures, but the finished product was stunning. The owner’s Cirrus SR22 GTS will enjoy incredible ramp presence without the need to wax or otherwise replenish the ceramic coating for the next thousand hours. After coating we do a brief training with the owner to show them how to wash the plane, it is really quite simply and actually super cheap, as our no-rinse solution consists mostly of water! This owner will never have to wax his airplane again.
