    It has been quite a while since I posted....the last time I did was last year



    Been too busy travelling around & we just celebrated our Grand ma 90th birthday...had a great time catching up with all my uncle & aunt...

    came back from all over the world.



    the moment i reach home - I did another detailing marathon 2 days 26 hours of detailing over 2 cars



    Still recovering from a fall, slipped & fell wearing a worn out crocs during washing my car. Right elbow hurts & worse i didnt let it recover



    We have to take pretty much percaution, when working with a power tools or during detailing.



    couple of months ago i nearly lost my right biceps...as i was caught by the pad on the spindle on my sleeves, burn a chunk of my left arm

    what happen was I conducted a hands on detailing clinic for BMW car club & while having late lunch at 4pm, my buddy who got his E 90 asked me to help him to detail his ride

    without considering much , I says `yes` as Seech was coming along - and later the day i got so tired...& restless



    I forgot to turn off the spindle caught, while resting on my left arm & trying to buff of the polish residues, just a few seconds - Seech was helpless

    Thank God! Miracle came & after many tries the rotary went off



    So this is a reminder to all of us :- be careful when working with a power tools, as this is not a toy



















    after a long 5 months waiting, finally i managed to slot in for my buddy to get his ride finish





    Not too bad - no signs of water marks baked resurface





    1st time it came in...some pictures recovered from a faulty Memory card...evidently enough t show u the stains













    many has similiar experience but resorted to be repainted...









    to read more at http://www.autopia.org/forum/car-cov...car-cover.html



    But `Do u still remember the story "for it takes a deaf frogs to succeed"







    resulting this







    close up





    more stains on the left 1/4 area



    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    the last time i was only given 4 hours to restore & this time round I was given 3 hours....





    good looking coupe









    Begin to wash with ONR





    3 microfibers & 8 litres of water













    moving to clay . onr as lube (2 ounces 500 ml)

    clay before





    you should glide left too right, top to bottom & not forcing by pressure & circulating - to avoide swirls







    washing the engine is make possible













    OPC to remove this grease









    with ONR

    Clay with ONR as lube



    Wash again with ONR



    Paint correction by Meguiars M #105 as it is aggressive with LC double side wool - One machine finish - Makita 9227

    with Rotary spread at speed 1 - work at speed 3 , mover on to another section before continue the last section -



    cool of period



    step down with Optimum Hyper spray polish with megs - soft buff



    ONR wash





    last 15 minutes- protection

    Opti seal - sealed

    Optimum car wax - to protect







    ta da - off we go





    area mark - 50/50%





    just to show u ...as the whole hood is cover with the damage, under proper lighting - it surfaced



    " i remembered clearly - When Matt Davis `Megs` in one of his training, he says "chances if u cant see it, you wouldnt be able to correct it"



    the second thing he mention "If i am not passionate of today lesson, i will go partying yesterday night, for it takes PASSION & commitment"







    different angle but same issue





    after multipler of tries.....passes....as i was fighting against time & rushing might endanger the clear coat failure
