The most extreme & elaborate professional car detailing guide brought to you by KC

I have another great opportunity not just detailing any ride, but truly a great transformations detailing on this ultimate driving machines

this is the most comprehensive & elaborate thread i ever undertaken...over 150 ++ of careful pictures documented... covering every part before & after & the process of what took place......

never have i done any car for 2 sunlight day....... the amount of attention ...headache....heat that i endure was immense ... a total 19 hours of detailing...

this ultimate driving machine is slightly more than 3 years old, got repainted last year & the interior is beyond its age...
the owner specifies the interior detailing...


the residue left behind after a good bath

with the good old ONR no rinse wash - how does it takes an average of 150 gallon of water to wash a car, from rinsing, to soaping & re rinsing...but with the technology, how 2 ounces of ONR in 2 gallon changes the water density & tension....whatever dust or dirt that is trap on the microfibers now is trap under the water tension.. was design to fight the global warming & environment issue

filthy interior - usually seen in chauffeur driven ride - but just a 3 years old ride only

Moving on to the real paint issue

pls note that this repainted paint is soft, so soft that even scratches slightest touch create frictions, even wiping a microfibres marred the paint

the owner was shocked

hacked by previous detailer

furiously looking at the hologram damaged paint

What causes a 'hologram' effect in paintwork and how do you get ...
1) abrasion holograms, often reffered to as buffer trails or machine marring, which are microscopic scratches in the paint caused by micro marring of the improper product, pads & improper technique (not clean & contaminated)

rotary buffed too long. You shouldn't buff till the product becomes a powder. This is called buffing to a dry buff. You should always stop before this while there is still a liquid film on the surface.

more scratched & swirled paint

a 50% / 50% area set prior correction & previously hacked & deep scratches inflicted during the last rotary buffing - suspected pads were dirty & filled with sand & just scratched , not clean prior use



the paint is so soft that even with the slightest Megs M#205 polishes hologram it...with rotary with megs cutting pad

although scratches is eliminated


ta da another breakthrough technology...cutting edge''spray polish & compound) one or only in the entire work...1st to receive in asia

Benefits and Features
This ground-breaking spray compound is fast cutting, ZERO dusting and user friendly. A unique blend of proprietary polymers and abrasives allows for rapid removal of sanding marks and deep paint imperfections and defects like swirls and scratches all while creating the look of a polish.

No chalky residue EVER!

This is the first commercially available spray compound. Made for quick elimination of paint imperfections in a factory setting, Compound Spray works fast with no dust and minimal - if any - compounding swirls

It is very "wet", which gives it a long buffing cycle (working time) and makes it easy to spread over the paint. Foam or wool pads simply glides over the surface on the wet compound. It's nearly effortless! And, because i can keep working the compound almost indefinitely,i'm able to remove all defects with a minimal amount of compound. it's a spray! The spray formula enables you to apply compound to the entire pad with just a couple of pumps of the sprayer

i have never come so close to this finish in all my detailing thread as this

wet looking...deep reflection ...high gloss

my new magic portion

To create a 100% swirl-free finish requires that you do everything you can to the best of your abilities to remove as many of the deeper defects from the finish as you can using a compound or cleaner/polish. Then using good technique, the correct pad and a finer polish, you re-polish the area and massage out any remaining haze or swirls from the first step

Just to note, achieving perfection on a painted surface will always be influenced by things like paint hardness and/or softness. The harder the paint, the more difficult it will be to massage out each and every defect, while very soft paints will be prone to marring or micro-scratching. There is a sweet spot for paint harness that gives you the best of both worlds, hardness for durability and resistance to deteriorating, yet soft enough that it can be successfully polished. This unfortunately is something you can't control..

Your point of origin, or reference must also be considered. If you start out with a finish that has gross swirls, as in deep swirls possibly instilled by running the car repeatedly through a mechanical car wash, or perhaps it was machine buffed using a wool pad and a compound that doesn't utilize diminishing abrasives, no polish or wax is going to be able to fill-in deep swirls like this and make the paint look good. So if by using a rotary buffer you can effectively remove the deep swirls, scratches, oxidation, etching, (or whatever the defects are), and create a finish that is 99% of the way swirl-free, then the difference between the condition of the finish you started with and the condition of the finish you have created will be dramatic
