    Most extreme acid rain - water spots removal on a brand new peugeot- privilege detailing by KC

    how to keep the white car white?
    Malaysia is known for its tropical climate - plenty of heat & plenty of rain & plenty of acid rain = TA DA -------most severe acid rain
    in the world

    how to keep the white car white it is too much a challenge to keep our ride clean & looking cool....not easy & quite hard to achieve it...ended up....we let other help us to do it.... for we know the best that we can ever do for our car is to take ownership of it......



    good looking ride - just slightly 2 months old



    my buddy actually calls ask me to help him to preps & protect this new investment



    great looking ! clean ! detail??? especially under bright sun light - nothing will hide - so much so if you are trying to find swirls on a white car under the sun will eventually blind your sight...for those of you had - i remember i did an E60 white & shot some pic under the sun, just before i sleep my eyes blink blink - comes watery - too much sun light entered into my retina - be careful !!! use proper shade or old negative to cut the glare of your camera view finder & proper sun glasses



    cant complaint much!! lets move in - closer & nearer -



    scratches - from parking curb - i guess more scratches



    ehhhh....dirty car....any underlying issue?? will soon check it out...on the plastic bumper



    unwashed wheels & brake dust



    ehhhh...swirls???



    closer look...on the engine hood



    excuse the glare -


    but is there a deeper issue?? - lets find out together



    more



    close up



    imagine



    the amount of scratches & swirls found on these plastic - is also found on the ride as well eg last rear 1/4 area next to the brake light



    door panel -



    close up


    more


    close up


    some really deep scratches swirls - but only a 2 months odd car??????


    lots of works!!! the heart of the ride


    the inductor


    plenty of water spots - esp on the windows




    unwashed wheels




    close up


    washing begins with OPC - 1:5 part dilutions & wheel brushes for hard to reach area



    useful esp - wheels area



    now the wheels cleaning begins



    before
    closer

    Re: Most extreme acid rain - water spots removal on a brand new peugeot- privilege detailing by KC

    tada


    now


    moving on
    petrol cap area


    side steps


    door jams area


    opc work great for removing grease stains


    side skirt before


    after wash - close up


    more - tars stains - tiny little splints like in our skins- can be quite an irritant


    some found at the front bumper



    rear lower bumper on the white car



    STEP 2 - paint preps begins


    and i actually took 2 hours to clay them off

    eg

    tars spots on the left wheel arch area


    ONR sprayed on as clay lubricants


    clay on


    gone off


    more stains & tar collected-


    remember to check prior moving to the next area

    stains found on the emblem


    imagine is just a 2 months old ride


    lets clay them off


    ta da


    now you see - before


    now you dont



    more hidden stain beneath the rear windows


    lets do the clay


    side window water stains


    after clayed


    needn't to use force - as some road side car wash would use aggressive acidic cleaners & scrubs with force

    eg

    tars stain beneath the rear bumper


    ta da

    i had to rush to return my ride to my buddy & it is already 1200 midnight of the 2nd day
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++++++++++++++++

    inorder to show my buddy - how easy it is to to the most easy effortless & effective maintanence in the world - a simple ONR wash

    i will let the pic tells u

    a week later


    far away shot

    close up -


    some thing look familiar - a week ago

    rear bumper
    now


    after


    its time for celebration - imagine 10 minutes wash with ONR & 3 MF weekly maintenance - ta da




    welcoming the new ride

    roof











    effortlessly yrs




    What I did was
    STEP 1 - wash - OPC 1 : 5 dilutions with brushes for all windows & stains area

    STEP 2 - preps - CLAY with Onr as lubrications - removing tar spots & stains at the hard to reach area. ONR wash after claying

    STEP 3 - Paint Corrections - Start off with Osren Velvet pad - Optimum Hyper spray compound ( 3 puff on the pad - speed 1 to spread - speed 3 - 3.5 to level out the paint -)

    followed by LC double sided wool pad with Optimum Hyper spray compound ( 3 puff on the pad - speed 1 to spread - speed 3 to level out the paint -)

    followed by LC Cutting foam pad with Optimum Hyper spray compound ( 3 puff on the pad - speed 1 to spread -gradually increase to speed 3 )

    polish with Megs Polish pad with Optimum Hyper spray Polish ( 3 puff on the pad - speed 1 to spread - gradually increase to speed 2 & finish off at speed 1)

    polish with LC Glazing pad with Optimum Hyper spray Polish ( 3 puff on the pad - speed 1 to spread - gradually increase to speed 2 & finish off at speed 1)

    STEP 4 - Protection - Optimum Protection with Optimum Coating for good ( say bye bye to wax)

    STEP 5 - need to be maintain by the owner - a weekly wash ( not road side wash again)

    You can make a different ....... there is a real story

    one day that there is a man who like to stroll on the beach prior going to work & he saw a young man like dancing, as he approach he saw this little young boy, throwing back the star fish into the sea - he ask there are miles & mile of star fish on the shores - its foolish of you to waste your time pick them up - you cant saves them all...this young man came back & pick up & throw another start fish into the sea & replied "for that star fish - i make a different"

    it is always impossible to reach the world - even all the car owners in our country - but for this - i make the diffrent

    thanks again for taking your precious time to view

    now could give me some air to breath



    a bit more - cool air


    do you know why this is the most dangerous part of the ride ???


    cos it is the nut behind the wheels

    have a fun filled day
    Live life to its fullness!

    Great job, KC!! But this has to be one of the newest cars I have seen you do, and you still took it to the next level!!! I cannot think of a better LSP for Malaysia than Opti-Coat.

    This is so true! Sometimes I feel like the man, other times I feel like the child, in my personal life. Thanks for sharing!

    Excellent work.

    Nice job capturing before and after pictures, white can be a challenge to work with when trying to capture defects.
