About John C. Gray, Jr., Owner
Welcome and thank you for your interest in Gulf Coast Auto Shield!
I am a native Texan and have lived and worked in the Houston area for over twenty years. My wife and I will celebrate our 22nd anniversary this year, and we have been blessed with two beautiful daughters. I am proud to be a living kidney donor, and I am passionate about organ donation awareness.
My father worked in automobile sales for over forty years, and my love and appreciation for cars started at an early age. Throughout my professional career with a major shipping company, I have maintained my interest and passion for excellence in vehicle exterior appearance. I take great pride in my work and do not believe in short-cuts or unnecessary services. Upon the completion of a thorough paint evaluation, I work to achieve the best overall appearance and condition for all vehicle exterior surfaces.
Currently, I am one of three authorized Opti-Coat Pro installers in the greater Houston metropolitan area, and I would welcome the opportunity to assist you in achieving the ultimate exterior appearance for your vehicle.
Enhance your vehicle’s beauty with Gulf Coast Auto Shield’s Opti-Coat treatment and extend the life of its surfaces!
Opti-Coat is not a wax or sealant like other products on the market. It is a ceramic clear coating very similar to factory type clear coats. A layer of Opti-Coat measures approx. 2 microns in thickness, or about 100 times thicker than your typical wax or sealant. Unlike paint protection sealants such as PTFE, Nano Sealants, GlassPlexin that degrade over time and are easily removed through washing with water or chemicals, Opti-Coat does not degrade and cannot be removed by chemicals such as heavy duty truck wash or even caustic degreasers. It is totally resistant to these chemicals and produces a permanent film that is chemically bonded with the factory paint layers. It is far more resistant to chemical etching than factory clear coats and far more resistant than competing paint protection sealants.
