More throttler detailing

Wow!! Amazing durability!

Love your pic and description heavy threads!

btw how did you remove the scratches and scuffs? did you need to re-coat those areas with OC after that?

Hey I have a GTI and was wondering what you used for the black b-pillar/side pillar to get it nice and swirl free.

I have tried many things and haven't gotten good results as those panels are so soft.

Would you mind sharing your process with me?

Hi buddy
pleasure is mine

the 1st time when we preps the ride, prior before coating

we polish it with LC 3" pad with OHP white foam pad & finish it with LC 3" pad with OHP red foam pad

a frame before



after


protected with OPTIMUM coating

KC, another testament to your skill and detailing expertise!

I've seen you take trash and turn it into a sparkling jewel and this is no exception. Optimum Opt-Coat 2.0 seems to have scored another bullseye and 13 months later it's still on watch....

Thanks Sohail99
I did not recoat ...any ...as i wanted to test how well optimum coating last in tropical & acid rain inflicted country of ours.

for your kind words, i did the water hosing down test... power clean for him, left a bottle of OPC after my 3rd month visit.... he is Skeptical of POWER CLEAN which i gave him to maintain himself....he was too worried to use it....as it was professional products

What happen after opti coating is, we have an additional coat of clear, that doesnt prevent the car from getting dirty but makes cleaning so effortlessly & more scratch resistant

initially he complaint - how come opti coating wear off so quickly...After I showed him how i Power clean ....he was amazed that how this coating lasted as compare initially with his friends coating. Now that he has seen and also asked me to opti coat his cayman, his new A4

conclusion
this car is park daily outdoor on a busy trunk road, very near to industrial area...at times under the tree ...mostly wash by car wash, as they are tight with time'

far best coating i ever experience..
ma ma mia - the best that any owner can request
