professional detailing course - handling rotary (paint defect & corrections by KC)

Thumbs up A Natural Born Detailer

Personally I would like to thank Optimum Car Care's KC Yum for his magical work. His magic hands had done it once again.

Last month I believe I was attacked by a BIG BOMB (aka bird's dropping ), unknownly it has been there for days.. I guess you guys know the consequences. I tried to remove it but to no avail. I had got no choice but to send to my regular car care center in Aman Suria. They are quite a reputable and established car care center... maybe not so detailed to be called a detailer YET .. The boss checked and claimed that it's impossible to remove it. However as their member, I demanded him to try out..He asked his chief detailer (a Burmese 'nice' chap) to flex some muscles and kung-fu.. waited there and observed, then I got this feedback.. "tak boleh",.."betul tak boleh", then came the boss to tell me "it's oxidised, no way anyone can remove it and leave no stain mark".. Well, I was kinda disappointed.. I was thinking to an extent to re-paint but was advised not to since it's not so obvious. Hold on to the feeling, day after day, and following week sent my car for washing.. met the boss again, he asked whether I checked with anyone, I said "nope, not yet"... Then he said not even DiamondBright can remove it..wow, he seemed so confident...

Then I found this Natural Born Detailer by the name of KC ... a nice easy going chap, more like a lecturer and no nonsense when talk about detailing.. Unbelievable amazing touch, the MAKITA as if like a STORM-RIDER's sword.. his movement is gentle but effective. Job done in less than 5 mins (incl a simple 'no rinse' car wash)... I share this experience so that no bros should be taking for a ride by Half-Past-Six so called detailer...

KC did take some pics... hopefully he got time to upload them here to share with some bros.

Happy Father's Day to all FATHERS...
Cheers and thanks for reading....
