What is “The Best”?

Illustration of concept with word the best on background

 

We often hear people asking for a recommendation for a product or service and wanting to know what “the best” product or service is that they are looking for. Another component to this question is an additional statement relating to price such as “Where is the best place to get my windows tinted……for cheap?”. This is obviously a contradictory statement and defies the common law of business balance as laid out by John Ruskin:

“The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot — it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”

Merriam Webster defines the word best as:

of the highest quality, excellence, or standing”
It’s important to understand that everyone’s interpretation of what “best” has come to mean is probably different and making sure that your expectation of what that means to you is on par with people that you might be asking for recommendations from. 

2005 Acura NSX Xpel Ultimate Clear Bra and Modesta Glass Paint Coating Application by Scotty’s Shine Shop

Once in a lifetime a project comes along that really speaks to your passion. For us at the shop this beautiful red 2005 Acura NSX was one of those very projects! After a consultation with the owner we ascertained that the car had been sitting at a fabricator for close to two years while work was being performed. The car arrived in less than ideal condition and had various damage that had occurred such as damage to the leather seats, marring in the paint and the entire car was covered in some form of black paint overspray.

We began by decontaminating the paint and gently detailing the engine compartment. After finishing we moved on to the interior and performed a top to bottom detailing and had our trusted friend Blair Boone from Fibernew Industries repair the damage to the leather seat. Paintwork was the next order and we spent countless hours polishing out every correctable defect in the paint in preparation to have Modesta BC-04 nano-titanium paint coating applied to all the paintwork. The decision was made to install Xpel Ultimate paint protection film to the hood, bumper, fenders, headlights and mirrors to protect the paintwork against further damage from insects, debris and stone chips so we installed a computer cut cut from Xpel. We finished up the polishing with an application of Modesta P-01A Primer and while that cured we removed the wheels from the car and thoroughly cleaned and detailed them and applied Modesta BC-06 Heat resistant wheel coating to the entire rim and the brake calipers.

Now that the paint was ready we applied the Modesta to all painted surfaces and cured it on the paint with Infrared curing lamps. All that was left was to get the little details and completely inspect the work. We think the pictures speak for themselves and were thrilled to have been able to be a part of such a special project.
