    Nissan 2face revisited

    What do u do when u see your car paint faded?

    oxidized, dull, dead paint....''boss mesti hantar cat la'' mean sorry - need to be repainted...no cure...that is what the paint shop(body shop) advise me -
    even the technician of a reputable international detailing supplies company
    tell me pls get itrepainted
    I was so shocked & i actually copy& paste d respond i got from MOL, he was quiet then
    I nearly gave up detailing if i have listen to some,

    front hood before

    back bonnet before


    oxidized, dull, dead paint....''boss mesti hantar cat la''
    ta ta ta
    ladies & gentleman
    let me present u my nissan 2 face
    his have been roaming in town, still in 2 face condition



    boleh ke ?
    water test?
    start to pour water

    1 sec later

    2 sec later

    3sec later

    4 sec later


    5 sec later

    6 months later
    revisited

    detail side



    look from the dull side - no reflection

    ta ta - its alive


    rain test - water beading
    on the engine hood

    on the roof



    the very next day - dew test

    close up





    my conclusion, a detail surface is a protected surface & test against the harsh envioromental test -





    before

    now

    before

    now

    before


    before

    now

    water beading well


    how i did it? just be deaf & stubborn to do what i have to do....with some effort & Megs 80, D 151, NXT 2.0, UQD & P.a.s.s.i.o.n


    i am planning to keep this as it is....forever
    thanks for viewing my nissan 2face again
    have a great weekend
    it only takes a little patience and plenty of PASSION!!

    AWESOME job!!!! I don't know how many times I have heard people say that the only way to fix the paint is to get a new paint job, when all they have to do is use detailing steps to restore the paint they already have!! Detailing works, and you have proved it with your hard work. Looks great to me!

    This is a fantastic testament to the benefit of detailing. 6 months later and it still looks like this? fantastic. Way to go, KC.

    LMAO I did this to my sister's black VW Jetta last year. I just saw it recently and the left side of the hood is still beading while the right side is still swirled up and nasty.

    Detailers clean places nobody see. Detailer see's things nobody else see. But if you ask a Detailer to see how a dress looks on a woman, they are blind.

    Wow the outcome was fantastic. Nice job! Was just wondering about those stains on the roof of the vehicle... Do you think they can be removed with any of the products or would they seem beyond repair?
