comments from participant KC charitydetailing clinic
as a number of guys here who signed up for the event couldn't make it, thought i would post a quick trip report.
many thanks to KC for arranging the event, and to both KC and Jack (Seech) for making the day possible and sharing their knowledge. it was an extremely enjoyable day, learnt a lot, and it was great meeting the kids at yayasan sunbeams home.
KC started the session with a brief talk about detailing, the various stages, required products and tools.
many may think once their bella has lost her previous lustre that its time for a respray, in fact its better to keep the original paint. most places won't do the necessary prep work (which can take up to 90 days, with the spraying only requiring one day), and it they don't it won't be cheap. even then most paint shops ovens don't go to as high a temperature as the factory, hence why its better when possible to keep the original paint.
KC also highlighted the shortfalls of opting for what may seem the more convenient option ie getting those muppets in car parks to snow wash your bella, but in the long term this can cause more damage to the paintwork than its worth it (not least because they run the rotatory polisher at too high an rpm which damages the paint's clear coat).
for those who want to keep their bella clean with little or no fuss, without having to get into the whole detailing thing, the easiest thing is to use the optimum no rinse wash (ONR). due to the improved surface tension its possible to wash with one microfibre and dry with another leaving no smears, all done within 20mins (easier than the current no rinse wash i'm using). for even better value, i would suggest a couple of guys buy a gallon bottle together.
then followed a hands on demo of using the rotatory polisher and correcting the paintwork. i didn't bring my coupe for the demo, so KC used Temptress' wira
