Hi to all my friends & forumer....sorry for the short silence...
It has been the most hectic months of my life...i have a series more to come (to be exact half of dozens review yet to be written)...this is one of 3 i did in a 3 days roll - detailing marathon during Hari raya holiday...where everyone suppose to take a break..but instead of breaking myself

I wish to have the luxury of keeping the cars for days or weeks to detail one...but i do not have the luxury of time .
this indeed is an added pressure, further more I have to complete my task from Dawn to Dusk...wouldnt you like the phrase "take yr own sweet time"..no way...we took close to 24 hours to complete this detail

Another...exotic encounters

Cayman S



plenty of visible swirls & hologram on this Porsche


Look at the right side rear quarter - scratches



close up pic..


stains on side air induct..impossible for hands to reach


some of the visible TOGWT


wax residue on door protector trims guard



more TOGWT stains on the signal light crevice are



TOGWT stains in between bumper & body crevice



more wax residue found on rubber lining



begin with onr wash



3 cloth


before wash


after....dirt collect & stay trapped beneath


how to remove wax residues


agitate Power clean & loosen with brushes


side air duct
hard to reach area - with brushes you can


more hard to reach area - but with brushes you can


more hard to reach area - but with brushes you can


front air induct area

cleaning yr plates is good, as it will be obvious & otherwise it stand out once the whole car being detail

ensuring...each part is clean meticulously


moving to petrol cap area


more brushes


side step


and with ONR... for weekly cleaning is simple effortless



more cleaning at bonnet area




door jam


cleaning make easy esp with ONR ...as you do not require to rinse



before


ta da


& more



as for wax residue on door & plastic trims


recommending you ONR & light claying...slowly & steady


you remember the story of hare & tortoise


for it takes slow & steady to win the race

more wax residue....on rubber.... lot of stress in cleaning it..

i have seen personally some famous detailed clean it with Super degreaser .....& other shops..with kerosenes

I dont doubt it work .....but why so aggressive ....why uses more harsh cleaners



I uses POWER CLEAN & with microfibers...wiping down

pic before


POWER CLEAN & brushes

to remove previous dressing & residues ...preparing the surface



protected.....


tada

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Cleaning the wheels



Quote:
major reason for damaged wheels is “instant gratification”. Many detailers just want to spray a product on, and rinse it off, and expect to have wheels that look like new. This is a main reason for detailers to choose extremely harsh wheel cleaners and to barely dilute them. They figure the stronger the chemical, the better the wheels will come out. They also spray wheel cleaners on a very hot wheel. Also, because some detailers want to rush through the job, they spray “all 4 wheels” at once and let the product sit on them. This will also quickly lead to etched and damaged wheels. You need to be smart and realize this is not a good idea and also realize that some degree of agitation is needed to release some of the brake dust

for the complete wheels detailing pls read more here http://thedetailers.blogspot.com/2010/10/wheels-detailing-simple-as-123.html


before pic


with onr....is it effective enough


judge for yourself

look at what have i collected



++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

moving on to interior

I doubt most Malaysia do not realise it is not for killing spouses but child seat..just in case


seats

interior
and transforming to cup holder



ta da

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



Moving on the paint work


plenty of swirls from washing



more


more from A frame


more scratches & swirls on rear right 1/4 panel


visible hologram


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

long scratch repair


more


under halogen lighting


special pad flown in from US...3'' on small & curvy areas...esp on this ride



Initially I started compounding with Lake country double sided wool pad & maybe give Megs M105 a try...but due to the vinyl verandah & goes thru heat ...high temperature cakes up everything & causes more holograms...

I swap to Optimum Hyper spray polish ....excellent working time ... heat & dry resist...with this advantage.. i finish the car

Compounded with OPTIMUM SPRAY HYPER COMPOUND

HI bro there is 2 types of vinyl or dash board products........
the usual or they car wash applications will be the tire shines, slippery & greasy ...the moment yr sleeves pass over..ta da .. dirt & oil transfers to it...this is just a dressing product..given time wear off & offer no protection against heat & sun



as the other would be...megs or leather protectant...gives u a silky finish & not oily
it does not fill holes but protect them, UV protection too....

:burnout:

becareful what u ask for...tire shine on dash & interior no no
like these look



test ...with a tissue


ta da...you sure u want this




do u know the amount of work i need to do just to detail this....clean up the tires shines


you need to remove before you reapply any protectant on it...just imagine you only put makeup & do not remove....what happen when it build up.....cracks




my choice

before


after




with this



look at the finishing texture,,,silky & not oily



more over its has UV protection

it takes a cobbler to know his tools

you too can a trained cobbler now
