DeFelsko PosiTector 6000 - The most accurate paint thickness gauge on the market for both ferrous & non-ferrous metals. This means it will read paint depth on steel, aluminum, alloys, titanium and other metal substrates. The DeFelsko PosiTector 6000 comes with a probe that can read from 0-60 mils with an amazing 1% accuracy, compared to the standard 3% and 5%. It also features data logging capabilities giving Jason's Auto Spa the technology to produce paint inspection reports and save vital information about your paint thickness so it may be kept on file for future reference. It is important to determine the total thickness to track how much clear coat you have removed after the restoration services because there are guidelines to keep within. It is also important to know if certain areas are too shallow or too thick, as they will both react differently than the other body panels and we would adjust our clear coat restoration methods accordingly.
DeFelsko PosiTector 200 B/Adv - This thickness gauge is used for measuring thickness on plastics and composites. This way we can accurately determine the thickness of plastic panels such as bumper covers and even entire vehicles such as the Chevrolet Corvette. The PosiTector 200 uses proven ultrasound technology to echo a high frequency sound pulse that reflects from any surface that is a different density. It will return readings up to three layers thick - Your primer coat, color coat, and clear coat in most cases. Although we don't need to know the thickness of the primer coat, it is extremely useful to know the thickness of the color coat vs. clear coat.
New Microfiber Towels - Although not a new technology for us, we have replaced our entire collection of microfiber towels with brand new high-quality microfiber featuring an industry best 70/30 polyamide content rating. 450 brand new microfiber towels await to grace your vehicle's needs for a plush 2008.
Water De-ionization - Illinois has some of the hardest water in the entire country at over 14 gpg (Grains Per Gallon). We have utilized a water softening system in the past but felt the need to take it a step further due to some stray water spots we discovered in the midst of the detailing process both local and mobile. This process produces water that is very pure, similar to distilled water, for a spotless wash even in direct sunlight.
3M PPS Sun Gun - Often used in body shop environments, the 3M PPS Sun Gun is used to mimic direct sunlight and show swirl marks, scratches, and many other flaws during the clear coat inspection process. The 3M PPS Sun Gun will replace our Brinkmann MaxFire but not our 1500W of direct Halogen lighting for constant observation and analysis.

Clear Coat Restoraton/CCR - Clear coat restoration is the process of restoring your clear coat to factory and often better than factory conditions. If you have ever looked at how your vehicle's exterior panels look in direct sunlight, you have probably seen an array of scratches also known as swirl marks or cob webbing. This process replaces the past "Paint Cleaning Add-on" with a service that is much more involved and offers even further extensive repair of your vehicle's clear coat in unison with our DeFelsko PosiTector gauges for the safest clear coat restoration available. This process is explained in great detail on our Clear Coat Restoration page.
Mobile Detailing - Mobile Detailing is available upon request. If you are interested, simply let us know when you schedule your appointment and we will forward you more information. Each experience is customized based on your selected detailing package.
New Add-On Options
Paint Inspection Report - Using our two DeFelsko paint depth gauges, we are able to measure the thickness of your paint to incredible accuracy. On fiberglass constructed vehicles, such as Chevrolet Corvettes, we can often determine the exact thickness of up to three separate layers. Using this data, we will graph the thickness of your paint for your records. If it was ever detailed before or you purchased it used, this is the definitive way to know your paint's depth. Shallow depth can point out clear coat failure before it happens and thicker areas will show where an accident may have occurred.
The Finest Carnauba Waxes on Earth - For anyone interested in the ultimate upgrade to your Stage V experience, we offer a selection of the finest Carnauba Waxes ever blended in the world. Please contact us directly for more information.
Equipment & Supplies we use
Jason's Auto Spa utilizes some of the finest equipment and supplies that are on the market today. We do not use brands that most detailers would use as we are not concerned about how inexpensive a bottle of polish is or how expensive a paint depth gauge may be. We care about the results and accuracy above all else.
