we started out TT very late & only have 2 hours plus

so what we cover

Basic car wash _ the most important of car detailing - begin with a humble wash

Proceed to clay (ONR 2 ounce dilutes in 500ml water) as lubrications the least aggressive but most effective (cost saving & good ROI) - it also prolong yr clay life spent , as most shampoo degrades & break it...

Moving on engine - spot cleaning - (optimum power cleaner) the far most better cleaner i ever use - so strong that can use as degreaser but so gentle can be diluted & safe for car paint & leather (safe for clear coat) i like to dilute 1:5 for engines & 1:8 for interior & leather cleaning

Paint correction - product comparison (between OTC & professional range)
*
Started with consumer product - OTC
proceed to Polish - Optimum hyper spray polish & M205
proceed to compound - Megs 105

*part 2 (advance level)
Wet sanding - levelling paint coat


ending with - LSP (protection)
10 minutes optiseal ( a prefect bonding & protection )5 minutes car wax by OCWax

ended past midnight




after Optimum power clean - dilution 1:5 parts water ( we are only going to do a spot cleaning test)

the owner actualy own all the above car, except for the first 2 shot at my stay in Hilton sarawak

initially
he say - do what you want - as i have order a Carbon fiber hood - but after correction - he change his mind
lets read on to find out why?

moving on to paint correction

DSCF1948.JPG


did you notic e some thing strange of the paint
go in & zoom in

DSCF1848.JPG


Pigmentation - most common cause - the root problem- where when the ride is repainted - there was no proper putty & sanded down carefully ( what happen when you ask for a rush job, where the putty is not 100% cured - pigment of such resurface once it is cured
another Paint defect

3 areas set for 3 range of product to be tried on
