Kc's Posted March 21, 2011 Share Posted March 21, 2011 I had a buddy asked me I did my silver car via an authorised Mxxxxxxxxx detail shop. 3 to 4 layers coated on it but frankly speaking I do not like the outcome. The paint turns 'sandly feel' in less than 2 months. What I do to preserve the smooth surface to coat up once or twice a month. Hi Buddy thanks for bringing up - 2 issue i would like to clear up here There is no such myths of 3-4 "layer coat " or 3 or 4 steps (what ever malaysia car wash / polish centre) claims - No matter how many layers of waxs' date=' sealant, glass coating & bla bla bla - the 1st layer than counts, as it is the touch base - try applying 58 layer of wax on yr car & check it out in 30 days time, - you would find more contaminants than ever before worst still - most car polish uses rotary to wax????????? which i cant find in any label of wax- where it specify - best use - rotary at speed 6 & 12 kg of pressure with rapid kung fu strokes to polish wax the car & resulting- buffer trails - Lets clear this myths once & for all there are 5 steps towards car detailing, 5-Step Paint Care Cycle 1st step car WASH - wash with PH balance shampoo 2nd step -CLEAN body preparation work - Claying (to remove outter contaminations) 3rd Paint correction - POLISH , Compounding for heavy correction (removing heavy swirls, holograms - inflicted by previous untrained detailer(car polish centre), minors scratches ...etc) then Polishing it to the gloss, glaze 4th protection - opti seal than wax ( my choice Opt car wax) or coating (eg opticoat) 5thly - maintainance ( a weekly wash & a monthly wax) allow me to show you wow - what a reflection - MIRROR SHINING - [img']https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_LW0SC8XIpiA/TYdzUBMM8kI/AAAAAAAABWg/WQRSTBPJg8Y/s800/DSCF4456.JPG[/img] Mirror shining ?????? Really ke ta da - lets see the truth - pls do not be blind by my pics - as many would gives u a pictures & not the whole picture let see again another reflective picture - wow better than mirror oppsssssss...........yes when it is with proper lighting - truth will be reveal Let me ask you by applying 4-5 or 45 layers coat of hwatever WXX Sxxx Cxxxx will turn this into mirror shinning I echo with many of my great sifu - that come before me - preparations , preparations , preparations & only preparations works - now can we ta da already?????? kindly answer pls now you what i did was - onr wash the car Clay with onr as lube Polish with ROTARY - compound with Lake country wool with optimum Hyper Compound, cut with lake country CCS yellow Cutting pad with Optimum hyper compound & Polish with polishing pad & optimum Hyper spray polish & finish with LC CCS Purple pad with optimum Hyper spray polish results a great make over & ta da check out the lighting now Mirror shining - the bigger pic only 1 layer of OPTI Seal, spray & spread & walk away OPTIMUM car wax spray & wipe & walk away ...and that not the end but a dawn of a new world ( a new begining) I taught & train the owner to care for his car - by a regiment of maitainance eg - a daily sweeps, weekly mop is far better than once a year spring cleaning - weekly wash by 3 MF & ONR ( just a 20 mins) a great way to begin this great journey is - a humble car wash, that we does it so often & damages built up over times monthly wax OCWax ( only 5 minutes for the entire car) - use gentle hands & left to right strokes to minimized - swirls inflicting back to the paint (be careful with paste wax & esp use with dirty or unwashed sponge pads - transference of scratches too) clay twice a year only remember before now another before now after paint correction & protection - water beads on top of the paint as surface tension stay tuned for the complete write up soon Lets rise up & take back our position ( I authorized you...& trust me you dont need any authorized person to handle your car) others does it for $$ but you do it out of your heart PASSIONATELY - at the end of the day every owners is the true car detailers for their car YOU can make difference today for your car Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
