sorry to hear that. After trying to remove as much cement as possible by hand, try water stain removal with mf towels. Clay it, de-tar it

Big panel,ie roof & bonnet usually rm250 to rm350 per panel. Price also identical for bumper. Fender rm 150 to rm 200 for 2k metallic, 2stage paint.

2k means 2 substances mixed (color paint with hardener) to form the paint. 2 stage paint is, base color coat and clear coat. Not sure what you mean by black 2 colors.

In detailing, 2k and 2 stage paints meant different. Almost all automotive paint is 2k . 1k paint will dissolve once solvent such as thinner, mineral spirit is used.This is yr typical can spray, house paint and those automotive touch up paint in small bottles sold in hardware/hypermarket

Hi all sifus. My car have been recently hit with bird poo. I have removed the poo within 24 hrs but due to the extreme hot weather nowadays, there's etch marks on the car's paint. cry.gif I've run my hands through the etching and there's no rough edges or scratches around the area. I have done some research about this and some ppl said using a lubricant with a claybar can help to reduce or remove the etching to a minimum, followed by waxing. Any other suggestions on this issue? notworthy.gif

You are claiming from the company right? Get a few proper quotes from the painters lah...at least black easier to match. ...negotiate privately to paint the whole car see how much...

I would go make a police report also for protection in case they don't pay to go for small claims court...

rinse > wash > clay > polish/wax > sealant

that's what you can do for now, if i were to park outside i rather park in open area without trees and overhead cable that attract bird poo and tree sap, sometimes those "shade" give you more trouble that good shakehead.gif

Tree saps, fallen branches and leaves, possible bird poo and it is always dustier!

Polish itself have cleaning capabilities, you don't have to use a machine to have the cleaning effect. Most often polishes in the market are designed to be hand applied instead.

White cars are prone to baked dirt on the clear coat which gives that rather yellow/grey stain (if parked under the sun).

Recommend a Polish n wax method to help prolong that white shine. White cars have to wash regularly.

Hello fellow detailers, does anyone know what happened to duragloss? I remember them having this really good wax / polymer type spray that really adds a whole lot of gloss to the paintwork

I've purchased stuff from Meguiarsdirect.com.my before if thats what you're asking?
Never tried Motormad as they have limited selection.
It is cheaper than ACE Hardware if thats what you mean.

Tip - Depending on what you're planning to buy, at times buying from Amazon + shipping is cheaper than both these sites (look out for deals!)

Dear sifus,

Ive recently purchased a pressure washer (kinda) and was wondering what kind of car wash liquid do you guys for the snow foam as a pre-wash/degreaser? Previously all I do is rinse > 2 bucket wash > dry > spray wax. What I have in mind for weekly wash now is rinse > pre-wash/degreasing > rinse > hand wash > dry > spray wax.

I'm currently using TurtleWax Expresshine spray wax and its about to finish. Any recommendation on what I should try next? I dont mind paying to a maximum of 50 bucks.

Thanks in advanced.

Best Regards,
Bryan

Last week couldn't resist and bought this...Attached Image

Strangest LSP I've ever used...looks and smells like hand cream...as it bonds with the paint...the emulsion breaks down and water is released...eventually soaking the pad...need to periodically squeeze the pad dry!!!

When fresh... beads like wax...sheets like most polymer...adds some gloss...very grippy not slick or smooth at all...will see how long it will last and how easy it is to clean...so far is looking good...could be a sleeper...alternative to PNS?
