Watch us make this 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500 easy to clean with ceramic coating!
2023 Chevy Silverado 3500 Ceramic Coating
Our Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights area client bought this brand new 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD to us, which is always the smart move. He wanted to have an easy-to-clean truck immediately, and have us touch up a few problematic spots from the dealership. The dealers tend to wash vehicles poorly, and in some cases, like in this 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500 HD – leave little sanding or holograms from factory defects. This is especially common in Tesla, where we see a lot of nibs that have been wet-sanded on the line. In any case, this ceramic coating will make bug guts, bird poop, and road grime come off the paint so much easier.
When it’s that easy to come off, the paint is less likely to be damaged by scrubbing. Indeed you have had to scrub off bug guts from your vehicle as you drive from Austin to Copperas Cove/Killeen/Harker Heights, and you know how those Texas bugs can embed themselves. Bug guts and bird poop are acidic and can permanently damage the paint if not rectified quickly.
We touched up a few areas of this vehicle with spot treatment paint correction, most likely caused by the dealer. For example, hard water spots on the hood, which most likely came from the fact that it’s so hard to reach the center of the hood on a 2023 Chevy Silverado 3500.
