SweetCars: 22PLE Factory Authorized Center of Excellence & Pricing

22plelogo

In the summer of 2011, SweetCars Detailing was approached by 22PLE to try their VX1 PRO. The results were extraordinary! 22PLE VX1 PRO and VX1 offered gloss that was unmatched by anything else we’ve ever used before. The durability was also something that added to the quality of the product. At that time, high end waxes and taking numerous steps for paint correction were en vogue. Glass coating was not as common in the United States as it had been in Europe and Asia. The quality and results we were achieving with 22PLE were enough for us to make it our go-to coating. Since then, SweetCars has been working closely with 22PLE in support of these amazing products. Together, our two companies have come a long way since then. From our days of using VX1 PRO to the present time being the first studio to introduce and name the new but exclusive ZX Mistico Elemento. So what is 22PLE?

22PLE is product based on the highest quality Silica available today. Unlike a wax or a sealant, when exposed to air 22PLE literally turns to glass. Hence the name 22PLE, (that’s name you see in the reflection of the logo on a surface). This glass surface makes the vehicle’s finish highly hydrophobic which gives optimal water beading and gives the surface a resistance to light swirls and scratches. Once applied and cured, the coating will give a wet-look gloss that is breathtaking. The coating can be safely handled and washed after 24 hours but takes about 5 days to fully cure. Before glass coatings became available, paint was being painstakingly corrected and then it was totally up to the client to maintain that corrected finish. Unfortunately, waxes and sealants don’t offer much in terms of scratch resistance, and with old habits being hard to break, the finish was back to it’s old state in a matter of months. Glass coatings such as 22PLE give clients a fighting chance to maintain that paint corrected finish.

2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Detail

When Centro Stile Lamborghini designed the Lamborghini Gallardo, it created a timeless classic. Known during it’s introduction as a “baby Lambo”, the Gallardo is anything but “baby”. In fact, this 520 horsepower bull is ready to run out of the gate to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds. Gallardos are exceptional machines, and when a local client brought in his Gallardo to SweetCars for service and detailing, we were more than willing to help bring his “baby” back to factory new condition. The vehicle first went to service, where the Lamborghini received it’s required maintenance. Then it was sent to our studio for detailing. The Lamborghini was in less than stellar condition upon arrival. The 3M film was extremely opaque to the point of considering removal. The Grigio Lynx paint was in need of correction and the engine was not properly displaying it’s V-10 prowess. Overall, the interior and suspension were also factors that needed addressed and so this Lamborghini Gallardo began it’s transformation to it’s former glory days. Michael Barney was meticulous in his approach to bringing the Gallardo from drab to fab. Bringing the paint to an astonishing gloss that was protected by 22PLE. Suspension components were brought back to factory condition, and over the course of 3 1/2 days, this Lamborghini Gallardo was once again looking as stunning as ever. Here’s pictures of how the Gallardo underwent it’s dramatic transformation. Enjoy! – Mike Cardenas
