A visit to Amazing Shine

The last time I had sealant treatment done on the paintwork was in June 2010, which was the System 6 paint protection system by Tuff Clad at Sin Ming Drive. I learnt about Amazing Shine from a leaflet on my windscreen and decide to give it a try on a Sunday afternoon. For $38, it includes vacuuming, polish, clay bar treatment, tyre shine and rim polish.

The process began with a car wash. The company is using Sonax products. The 2 staff that attended to my car are attentive in their work. The co-partner of the workshop, Ben, was there to ensure that the car is free from debris before the polishing work starts.

Half way through the works, I was asked if I would like to top up another $28 for sealant treatment. Sensing that these guys were serious about their work, I decided to top up the difference.

The gentleman in the above photo also helped me to peel off the “System 6” sticker on the windscreen, which has cracked and is rather an eyesore. After the whole process has completed, I had a walk around to car to check the quality of work. Being a white car with a fussy owner, it was not tough to find some minor dirty spots. However, they were attended to promptly with enthusiasm. In addition, they also took extra effort to help me lighten up a deep scratch on the front fender and the bumper.

Below is the end product. For $66, it was a decent piece of work. However, the acid test will be how long the shine/paint protection will last.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Well sadly, Amazing Shine has amazingly disappeared and still owe me 2 more waxing, sealent, fogging treatments and 10 car washes based on a package I signed with them. Lousy business ethics. I wasn't even informed of their closing down. Another shop has taken up their previous spot.
