Deatiling guru KC - revealing the truth of car waxing polish business again in Malaysia

For U create my inmost being & U knitted me in my mothers womb
I am fearfully & wonderfully make

Pay to get your car whack again???? is it necessarily to get yr car polish & compound - means cutting off layers of yr clear coat??

Another time Festive celebrations - means lot of preparations AKA lot of hard work - of sweat

Spring cleaning time – upon arrival of my buddy ride, he explained that he has been sending this 2 years ride to be detail every time when there is a festive season –( once yearly????)...but is it necessarily for the car paint to be polish & corrected every time - will our clear coat 2 mil of an micron last with stand against these harshness ???? wrong hands

I questions why there is the need of paint correction every year –
He reply “ I thought it is necessarily, just like spring cleaning !!!!!! I say “What”!!!!!

Great looking black stallion

far away look

eh...some stains from yesterday rain

But closer look

rainy season la

wow.. the stains mark - def at the speed he is driving

this is the most contaminated area - dirt grime & dust pick up

3 micro fiber wash


Lesson begins - DIY please - things can be done within our means

this is what we picked

contamination - such as Dirt, Grime, tars, acid rains, brake dust & Insect Deposits - on the paint above surface

Dirt, Grime & Insect Deposits

look at how ONR traps changes the water behaviour & tensions to hold up these dirt sands & dust beneath -

such contaminant will definitely hurt yr paint

++++++++++ Moving on to the wheels cleaning - the most important area to clean +++++++++
where contaminations create from here

ta da


ta da

just a quick wash aka wipe with ONR - most owners or detailer would like an instant gratifications - so harsh chemicals or acids use to create this transformations but after a prolong time - our wheels clear coat begin to chips & peels
what we need is just a quick effective wash to remove these dust
if u do have some tar stains - try claying them

as for me i usually use the balance ONR solution with a separate MF to wash these contaminated ares

tire cleanning

OPT neat use

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++sta ins cleanning

Petrol cap area

my favourite tools - soft bristle brushes (RM 8 - aka USD 2.50) & OPT Power clean - diluted in 1:5

_++++++++++++++++++ paint condition

what u do not see

remember this Great looking black stallion

now with proper lighting

ta da paint defect - such as swirls, blur- ness, lack of defination & plenty cloudiness


twice detail & polish - ended with these


more at the side arch



side door



need brick to built a house - ladies finger nails decorative


side door



I questions why there is the need of paint correction every year – He reply “ I thought it is necessarily !!!!!! I say “What”!!!!!

He has not been with his ride while the correction is being done for the past 2 times but this time different story , as I want him to knowe what is the damage & how to restore it

Empowering - lesson begins

a 50 / 50 % area set at the engine hood

before & after compound



look at what i collect from the roof

with proper lighting


close up

I cant resist - but to stop & shoot this mirror shines

side door

ta da

the truth

the way

the life

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
the owners laid his hand


bigger picture

paint redefine again

dont just take this pic at surface value as it is JUST ANOTHER reflection shots

after 8 hours of sweat & hard work


ta da


another side view

ta da


the depth

the detail

ta da

for once

to this

from these

some reflections pics


so do i use an slr or semi pro camera
nope all of my pics uses a RM 300 camera - when a well correct & detail car - details is redefine again

of such


now it is ready

my buddy has not seen his paint in these condition in fact after detail twice

as most of these detailer - asked him to be excuse - where I invite him to witness the whole proses

what we did was
ONR wash - 3 micro fibers

clay with oNR as lube (2 ounces in 500 ML)

wheels Onr wash

tire - OPC & brushes

OPC dilutes 1 :5 water for external cleanning

Paint correction

Megs M 105 wit double sided LC wool X 2 passes - spread speed 1 & polish at speed 3 - 2nd pass with ONR as lube – to rework again

Megs M 105 with LC cutting pad X 2 passes with ONR sprayed as Qd lube - gently & slowly to correct this soft paint

M80 polishing with Megs W8027 polishing pads X 2 passes - spread speed 1 & polish at speed 3 - 2nd pass with ONR as lube – to rework again

finishing M 80 with LC finishing pads – blue X 2 passes - spread speed 1 & polish at speed 3 - 2nd pass with ONR as lube – to rework again

lastly protected by Opti seal (3-4 times yearly) a bottle will last 4 applications & 10 years

strengthen with - Optimum Car wax in 10 minutes\\\so simple tht we can do it regularly without effort

Before he left I gave him a bottle of ONr + 3 plushy microfibers

handling him back the baton to care for his own car

no more excuse - no more road side as well


do u remember this pic too

look again - carefully

the truth is

Great job, like always.

I remember when you said that without ONR you would quit car detailing. I think you really meant without M105.

You have Spring Cleaning and we have another 4-8" of snow coming down in New York.

Next winter I'm gonna spend in Malaysia. KC, do you need help?
