>Today a customer booked me for a detailing session to correct his severed 5 year old Naza Citra.
I went to meet him at a caltex petrol station then after that I follow his car to his house that he provided shelter for me to detail up his ride…
I arrived at 8.30 then i started to inspect his ride for correction, scratches, isolated deep scratches. swirls etc etc paint damages on black cars.
After inspecting the paint i started the session 😛

dont want to concentrate too much on the damage later everyone cry lol
I started with and ONR Wash followed by claying the entire car… took me 3 hours here at least…
Here is a shot of the contaminents i picked up just at the window panel!!
After clay i did a test area 50/50 with wool pad and hyper compound and the result was not very satisfying as it didnt cut away alot of the scratches, but the swirls was gone..
Compounded looked like this…
then i was furious! so i did something that not all detailers encourage…
i sanded for almost 1 hour at the hood till it was all evenly sanded
then did a 50/50 comparison with compound again…
result blew my mind away..sorry for the dirty part =p
with proper lighting…
i haz a happy and proud of my risk…
then it was noon and i had to eat as ive used alot of energy in sanding… before i left for lunch i did a small experiment with the owner himself…
heard of the soft skin of a baby? silky smooth? how about when water hits the surface?
Enjoyed pan mee for lunch with my lovely gf then went back to serious mode…
i covered all the doors, roof, back, bumpers, side skirts (AKA Other parts of the car ) in around 4 hours…
here are some of the results…
This is not a chrome badge, instead its a soft soft sponge type badge which the clear layer is worn out, i powered cleaned it and polished it up
