>My dad’s friend who owns this Cefiro has been looking for someone to fix his so called “scratches” around his car. For me, i see swirls, RIDs, and alot of abuse…
So as for today ive only slept 6 hours since my last detail. abit worn out abit tired, i had to push my passion to the limit and give this babe a big big smile to her owner! Passion Rules!
Before i start the prescription..some teasers =p
Wiped the engine with ONR
Should a 3.0 V6 be left like this….. =/

Makita 9227c polisher

some brushes and sandpapers up to 2000grid
Started with some standard inspections around the car doors, roof, hood, boot and found tonnes of damages to be fixed. without hesitation. i wash it with my favorite potion ONR No Rinse wash!
just with ONR, look at the reflection!
After that clayed down with 1:8 ONR as lube
look at what ive picked up just from quarter of the roof! ewwww
Proceed to doing test spots…i ran out of masking tape…had to use cello tape as an alternative @@
tape up and did a test spot with Opt hyper compound and wool pad… 50/50 looks something like this
Not compounded part
Following with LC Yellow cutting pad results are quite good…
After testing to determine how could i solve the scratches i decided that some minor wet sanding was requires. i used 1000 grid wet sanded the scratches parts then moving to 1500 then to 2000 till even, after that i did a few passes on wool pad and 1 more pass on cutting pad. No more RIDs
Even my Golden Retriever shares at the gloss
After that i move to the side wheel arcs and doors till complete
After that i had a short break for lunch and my brother wanted to offer some help.
He then invented some amazing tools for Rim cleaning hahaha epicness!
In return he opted that i detail his blackberry lulz~ of all the other things he could wan so i just did it anyway…
Light pass with compounded wool pad, move to a more harder pass on cutting pad, then speed 1 to 2 to 1 on hyper polish sprayed some wax and applied Meg’s UQD
tadaaaa a well protected backpanel with extreme deep gloss
Even my Golden Retriever was emo as i didnt have time to play with her @@
After lunch i moved on the the roof and boot area…
Roof Area Compounded
This part is the most not safisfied part of all as i couldnt do anything to it. it was “touched up” with a chinese calligraphy brush =.=! notice the whitish spots
After Completely Compounding the car, i moved on to polishing Speed 1 spread, speed 2 to work the product and then to buff off. Then, Waxed and sprayed some Meg’s UQD for hydrophobic effect ^^
