As time goes by we are doing more and more Ceramic Pro jobs in our shop and less normal detailing. We have a saying in our shop. “Wax is dead.”
For just $90 you can upgrade our bumper to bumper or exterior only detail packages to Ceramic Pro Sport. This replaces the wax part. The Ceramic Pro Sport product is not as durable or even on the same level of a Ceramic Pro Gold or Silver packages that we offer, however, it is literally 4 times better than wax! In terms of gloss, how long it lasts, the ease of washing bugs of your bumper after a road trip, etc. It will give you an introduction the ceramic coating world and you will get addicted to it.
Here are some photos of recent Ceramic Pro Sport jobs at our shop.
It’s usually all about cars with our blog posts! But today I wanted to show off some boats we have recently done. One is a 2019 Maiibu LSV25. And the other here is Nautique G21. So why get a boat coated with Ceramic? The first and main reason is ease of maintenance, not to mention the protection. So easy to simply spray with water, when available, and then wipe your boat down with microfiber cloths. And that’s not just on the outside. The interior is coated as well! Then of course there is appearance. You are going to have the shiniest boat on the lake.
So the two packages available are the BRAVO which includes two coats of the Ceramic Pro BRAVO product on the exterior of the boat, above the water line, and one coat in the interior. Then there is the Ceramic Pro MARINE package. Which is much more technical to install and includes below the water line. This one is much more expensive, and to be honest, not really necessary here in Colorado with fresh water lakes, unless you want the additional protection.
Here at Boulder Auto Detail we can apply the coatings on your boat in our garage, if it will fit! Or, more popular send a mobile crew out to your location.
Anyway here are some photos from our boat installs last month…
Looking to get you boat coated with Ceramic Pro? In this video we discuss the Marine Ceramic Coating process and the awesome benefits. Talk about protection and ease of maintenance! Not to mention you will have the best looking boat out on the water in terms of gloss and shine. Then, who wants to go out on their boat for two hours and then spend two hours cleaning it when they come in? Please give us a call for a quote on your boat!
Below are a couple of pics of a paint correction in progress. Paint correction means the “polish” or “compounding” that is needed remove old swirl marks, holograms, spider-webbing or marring, and other defects off of a vehicle’s paint. The paint needs to be flawless before applying the Ceramic Coatings.
Why? A Ceramic Package is not a wax or a sealant. It is a Permanent Coating. One needs to get rid of any flaws in the paint so they are not permanently sealed in! Only certain polishes or compounds can be used that don’t contain fillers. Fillers contain silicates and are used by many shops use to hide swirls and holograms… In this case that car will look good only until these fillers brake down – typically in a few months and then all the swirls and defects come back. If this is done before a Ceramic coating it will not adhere correctly and also the coating will not last very long. This is not how we do things at Boulder Auto Detail. We do not use compounds with fillers during out paint corrections.
Anyone can grab a buffer and try to buff a car out… But to be good, really good, at paint correction it takes years and years of experience. At our shop we are constantly correcting mistakes either from other details shops or from new car dealers that have 16 year old kids working in their detail section with little to no training. All of our Ceramic Pro Certified techs have the proper experience and training.
Anyway to the fun part. Here are some photos of work in progress at our shop 🙂
Great short video here of a couple of Porsche’s we just finished coating. Ceramic Gold package on a Porsche 911 Turbo S and a Ceramic Pro Silver Package on a Porsche Macan. This was shot in 4k so you can really see the depth of shine or gloss on both vehicles.
Both cars required a full paint correction first. As the Ceramic Pro Coating is permanent we don’t want to seal in any imperfections that could have been correction through a multistage polish. This “polish” takes a lot of skill to do it properly and often takes 8 to 12 hours of labour.
Coating w/o a paint correction first, or an inferior correction that leave swirls, holgrams, spider-webbing is not what Boulder Auto Detail is about!

Now finally the finished product! Video’s are from our shop at 250 Pearl St. in Boulder, CO. Here are a couple of Tesla’s and a Ford Expedition. The “liquid glass” look will not go away or fade like wax does.
