Good day,

My buddy who called me up to detail his newly bought used car for his wife's daily drive, and since Valentine's Day is coming, he decided to bring this car to me for detailing as a gift for his wife. after inspecting the car, i found the front and rear bumper repainted, previous owner must have got into some minor accident before it was sold. other than that the whole paintwork is originally from the factory.

Making Impossible to Possible, will you believe in technology? 2steps cutting, polish & finish from Optimum which is the double sided wool & double sided red foam. both pads could cut, polish & finish like 4-5steps.

masking begins..

IPA wipe down after the paint correction, and then was protected with these goodies. OLP was used for rubber and plastic for exterior.

thanks for reading and Happy Valentine's Day!
 
hey there bro,great job!saw many threads about car detailing,mostly all the detailer used the good product such as Meguiars,Opt etc. i really love to take care of my car,often wash my car on my own rather than send it to the carwash,ive done claying,polishing,waxing on my car..i polished,waxed it with soft99 products and some time i use my father's PG products. i dont use any polishing machine..but there are still some swirls,how can i make all those swirls gone?do i have to use polishing machine?polishing compound?and also i want to ask,the Turtle product, is it good product to use? cause i went to tesco and the price is quite reasonable for a student like me :biggrin:..
cheers
