Discussion in 'Detailing' started by nizzell, Nov 13, 2018.

  1. Hello

    I would like to combine the “who are you” with a detail of my car.

    My name is Nick, i live near Rotterdam (NL) and last march i bought a Megane RS III cup in the color oyster grey with 48.000 km on it. Milltek exhaust and chip to 310pk.

    In the beginning, one propper wash and Waxaddict vitreo for temporary protection, until the full detail could be done.

    Test spot with the DAP900 on the engine hood and 1 door
    - Monello Raffini Orange + Scholl S3

    French car, so we expected the paint would be soft. Orange + S3 was not enough.

    - Monello Raffini Yellow + Scholl S3, this was more than enough for most parts
    - Enginehood + roof has been done with the Monello Wool Pad some deeper scratches here.
    - Passenger door had 3 deep scratches, has been done with the Scholl Sandwich Spider pad, removed the scratches for 95%.
    - After every panel, the pads were cleaned with Poorboys Tornado Pad Cleaner + Pad washer

  2. Next step
    Monello Raffini Yellow + Scholl S3 polished, 5.5 inch and the 4 inch.

    The other person started with the wireless drill + Aliexpress pads + cones for the small parts.

    For testing purposes we also tested the wireless drill + Aliexpress pads on the lights, this worked surprisingly well. The new Renault logos were also full with swirls, also been removed the wireless drill.
