Welcome Vios!

The car is ready by 12PM today (15th March 2006). It was left untouched, parked at the same spot in the basement stockyard, with the same amount of dirt on it. My salesman drove it up to the inspection bay for briefing. After everything is settled, I drove it back home.

First of all, before I start describing what I did on the detailing part, I found out 3 FREE "gift" from Toyota. In the photo below, the first one shows the scuff mark on the right hand side of the front lower bumper while the second photo shows the scuff mark on the left hand side. The third photo shows paint chip on the painted protective door strip. Exactly what I got on the Honda Accord (last year) if you read the article I posted before.


My detailing process started at 12:30PM, ended at 10:30PM. In between, I had 15 mins lunch break and 15 mins dinner break. Firstly it started with a wash. Check out the amount of rain water spots...


Factory water beading...


This is the buffer holograms which I mentioned (Try if you can spot the holograms)...


And this is after M83/W8006/RB and M82/W9006/RB. Absolutely swirl-free...Best thing about owning a silver car haha...


Certain panels have dried up polishing residue and splatters, due to poor rotary buffer maching handling. I removed those residues with M6000 and proceeded with clay. Unfortunately, those residues had already caused damage on the clearcoat, leaving splatter mark (lifted clearcoat). The only way to reduce the effect it is to compound it with M85/Wool/RB, then followed by M83/W8006/RB and M82/W9006/RB. The reflection is simply irrisistable!


At around 9PM, I was working on the doors to remove holograms. Thanks to the 300W halogen work lamp which enables me to spot any defects easily, eventhough on a silver car!


The effect of M21 on silver car is a hot topic among silver car owners. It's proven on Sherwin's silver Kelisa.


Factory pinholes were easily removed with M83/W8006/RB...



Job Scope:

- Wash
- M6000
- Clay
- M85/Wool/RB @ 600RPM (Certain panels)
- M83/W8006/RB @ 900RPM
- M82/W9006/RB @ 600~1200RPM

Duration: 10 hours

Thanks anonymous. I'm sure they'll repaint it if I ever complain. But bear in mind that entering their paint shop will most probably come out something funny such as paint overspray, or even new scratches due to their special cleaning technique, etc...I got a friend who took delivery of his Vios a month ago also faced the same problem. I guess it's the bad attitude of handling new cars during transportation.
