One of my closest buddy who make careful planning & decision to have a * New car on a new year!!! should be a celebration but.........



after months of waiting! the car finally delivered & he cant wait to get on to it ........ as much $$$ has been paid for this ride ... so much the responsibility to care for it!!!! how then should he protect investment .....to avoid this investment to be another liability instead of assets.

he was considering sending for a polishing waxing job....the commercial ones 3 hours for $300 ...or 4 hours for $400 kinda job...
Suddenly he remember some of my article at cars magazines.... and he called me to detail

new dirt on a new car discover along the way


look at the amount of dust & dirt trapped

little bit more


rain ....... & dirt


more the boot jams area


more on the rear


look at the amount of contamination picked up in such a short time


tars....& road grime


more things picked up along the way


scratches already found - another abuse - far too much insane & vandaliser found on our roads


close up


another fine scratches found on the bottom of the rear bumper


cleaning begins - deeper & getting into the detail





ONR as the LUBE


tar like contaminant, picked up on the engine hood


more picked up along the side skirt


more


rear lower bumper


do you realised that - i was wearing a surgical glove while claying - coincidently while protecting a cut on my fingers & it seems to be the best for testing surface above contaminations.....I used to see others by putting on sandwich bag in their hand gliding on top of the paint to test surface imperfection ...but I have to agree with Matt Davis Meguiars Asia "less is more" why put our paint to more stress & danger

Apparently, i found an accidental hero - surgical glove.. if you cant feel it - you wouldn't know whether to remove.....* kindly rinse off prior moving on to the next area

*can you feel the love tonight*
feeling it

then clayed it


more
almost four hours has gone ...... & so much more to do still



new car * with new contaminants


lots more work


do you get what I mean by now ...how can this new car comes with plenty of defects & how to protect it ultimately this new investment - will our ride become another liability in years to come or asset


the rescue plan was
Wash with ONR

Clay & ONR as lube

Paint & wax remover by Optimum Power clean (1:5 parts dilutions) & rinse off with water

Paint corrections with Rotary
Megs 205 with Lake country (LC) CCS cutting pads (some area Optimum Hyper Compound for a bit more cutting) Spread at speed 1 - gradually increase to speed 3 - 2nd passes relube again with ONR & a gentle brisk pass -

polishing with Megs 205 with Megs w8027 pads
Spread at speed 1 - gradually increase to speed 2 - back down on speed 1 again - 2nd passes relube again with ONR & a gentle brisk pass -

finishing with Megs 205 with Lake country (LC) CCS finishing pads
Spread at speed 1 - gradually increase to speed 2 - back down on speed 1 again (reduce strokes speed)

finishing with Megs 205 with Lake country (LC) CCS glazing pads
Spread at speed 1 - gradually increase to speed 2 - back down on speed 1 again (reduce strokes speed)

effortless care & one time applications
carefully corrected & polish prior coating, as it will be seal for good....any inperfection can be only be remove by wet sanding or compounding ...... no more waxes & sealant requires - ta da OPTI COAT

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
moving on to paint correction

After the final & ultimate coating of protection seal


Opti-Coat is one of the latest products to be released by Optimum Polymer Technologies. According to Optimum, Opti-Coat forms a permanent coating that acts as a second layer of clear coat that bonds to all surfaces. As the Opti-Coat will seal in any paint defects or contamination on the surface, it is only sold to professional detailers who have to sign a release form before they can purchase the Opti-Coat.

Naturally, after signing a release form and reading about how Opti-Coat forms a permanent coating that acts as a second layer of clear coat,

the clarity


Opti-Coat the ultimate Protectant to the Factory paint.....

this single layer of Optimum clear coat measures approximately 2 microns in thickness. Compared to other "paint protection" sealants, Opti-Coat is more than 100 times thicker with tests showing a wax coating measuring less than 0.02 microns.

This allows Opti-Coat to effectively absorb damage that would otherwise affect the factory paint layers. Swirl marks, light scratches, chemical etching is not only decreased by the harder clear coating, but the factory paint is protected by the thick outer Optimum coating.
