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 dint let it recover

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

couple of months ago i nearly lost my right 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[/img]

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

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

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

Begin to wash with ONR

My buddy asked me - why do you need to wash again - i just got my driver to wash prior coming-

I replied " my heart is very weak & might not be able to take heart attack, if take chances & damaged yr paint"

making easy - just 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 avoid swirls

washing the engine is make possible

OPC to remove this grease

with ONR

paint defect - visible

under proper light

new double side - wool pad - my choice of tool - as i needed aggressive cutting o correct this severe damage

good thing about this - u can flip side

inserting the thread adapter / extension

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 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 wouldn't 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 multiple passes....I was not only fighting against time but also rushing - which might endanger the paint - as the onwer need to host 2 american guest for dinner
