You can find cheap DA as per my compilation of price list as per link below, as low as RM 480 for 8mm DA. Took a whole month to compile during my free time  biggrin.gif

[go to bottom of page]

There isn't any 'cheap' DA at Jln Pasar, maybe rotary buffer / random orbital. DA usually sold by detailer shop or importer. If you are looking for value for money 21mm orbit (bigger throw), you can pm me.

Actually, it's not as scary as people made it sounds like....all you need it just somebody to guide you and a test panel. When I first started, my guide was youtube and my test panel was my in-laws neglected Nissan 120Y.... tongue.gif

Ahh, right now my plan is to buy Skil brand.
But I haven't made my mind on the compound, which feel like
My test panel is gonna be my car roof, since I park outside and under a tree.
The aim for me is relatively cheap/budget detailing.

Been using Osren's bubble wash for a week now...washing every two days

Nice smell aside...not sure if it is doing it for me...looks like its leaving behind a thin grey film on my wax...needs a QD follow up...

i doubt so. most oversea brands base their test with consideration of their weather, not ours. plus, march is going to be the hottest month this year. hot weather = wax diminishes faster

PG products are quite a steal. Sometimes if you check 11street (rakuten exited Malaysia) they have better deals and discounts than tesco/aeon.

Dear sifus,

I have cleaned my car > clay > polish.

During the polish process, I used Soft99 Cleaner & Polish (blue tin). I found out that the sponge is dirty with black dirt. My question is, I thought claying process already removed all dirt but why during polishing, I can see my sponge becoming black. hmm.gif

bro,
This is normal, that means the surface is not entirely cleaned during claying, even I clayed my bonet twice, I am still seeing my sponge turned black during cleansing (was using cleanser to remove my old wax/polish).

Thanks for sharing bro. In this case, can I assume I might get slight swirl because I rubbed the sponge on the exterior during polishing process as the surface is not entirely clean? But I dont find any swirl on the roof of the car under bright lights.

yes, you may or may not get swirls by rubbing sponge on your paintwork, in the event that swirls is inflicted on the surface, your polish may have removed it anyway, since you are polishing it..smile.gif

Hi gus/sifus!!! i just wash clay and wax my car the other day, i found out that on my roof and bonnet i saw alot of swirls marks. i was terrifies of polishing my car because:

1. im not a experience detailer, polishing will only create more swirl mark.
2. i dont have any polishing machine.

i know there's some type called polish and some called compound. i know polish is removing a thin layer of dirt/defected clear coat to review the fresh under layer. Do regular polish will affect the clear coat alot ?

im having a 2011 vios E

any suggestions ? advice for any product that affordable lah~ haha College guy here.

currently having a fresh layer of Wax.

get a DA for urself if u really care abt the swirls smile.gif I have been using Shinemate ERO600 for 3 years. It's awesome for light correction. IIRC it's priced around RM600 (Sabah), not sure the current price lol.

user posted image

Then get urself a Meguiar's Ultimate Polish (RM90?, it will last u almost forever lol) as it's a user friendly entry level product imo.

Welcome to the club =P

Do regular polish will affect the clear coat alot ? < no, if u know what ur doing smile.gif

Claying would 'shear off' contaminant embedded ON TOP OF the surface of the paint. It does not remove contaminant inside the pores of the paint. The sponge is dirty because by polishing, you're removing those contaminant.

Regardless, the 'Mark I' LHR15E is more than good enough for pro or pro-sumer and RM1400 is a very good price indeed.

If you don't know what you're doing, better send it to the pro. But if you can't afford to and still want to do it, go slowly, learn about the steps, products, methods, etc. before you start so that you don't create more harm than good. You can start by learning how to apply a sealant (liquid). Then look for a mild polish and try it out since polishing and applying sealant utilise the same techniqe except for the pressure during 'application'. When you've achieve a satisfactory result with a mild polish then you can start looking into using a compound to remove the rest of the deeper defects.

Good luck.

Sifus...pls recommend a sealant.

Looking for one that does not attract too much dust, water spots, road grime and road film...makes washing easier...beading and visuals not that important. smile.gif Tq.
