  1. Hello. Would like to seek some opinions here. Thinking of respraying my car as the paintwork is turning yellowish and there are paintwork damages (stone chips, dings and dangs) on the bumper. Previous owner also used liquid paper to try to mask up the stone chips. If I were to respray on the current bumper, after refibre/putty+respray, would there be a risk of the paintwork cracking after sometime? Or would it actually be wiser to replace the bumper with a good condition secondhand one followed by respray? I'm keeping my options opened. May be a good time to change new bodykit a
  2. I resprayed my car last year after an accident. But I'm a lazy b**tard and don't wash my car often, so the paint is a bit faded. Quite obvious because it's black. I also didn't do any coating or waxing after the respray, wasn't even aware of such things until recently. The car is coming to 10 years old but I'm thinking of possibly extending the COE by 5 years and I want to make it look nice again. Is it possible to send it for a thorough polishing job, and then do a new nano-coating to keep it shiny? Do I need to respray?
  3. Who is better at removing dents? i understand that Lye is more expensive than Gary. Does it mean that the quality of Gary is not as good as Lye?
  4. Usually after my car detailing, it would be night and surrounding low lights makes it quite impossible to perform a good paintwork inspection? Any suggestions and link to images would be helpful ! Also cost sensitive ! Thanks.

  6. Dear Friends: My car's paintwork needs to be renewed. There are small dents, scratches and marks all over. Where would be a good place to get it done? Thanks a lot for your advice.
  7. Fren just bought a 2006 car, both AA and trusted regular workshop assessed it and said the 45,000km mileage was genuine based on their inspection. The puzzling part is that the paintwork looks really shiit! It looks like someone has used dish washing detergent to bath the car, it looks almost matt! There are hairline scratches, or rather fine cracks here n there. Workshop said need a respray coz no amount or wax + polish can salvage the shine Any advice if there are other methods to restore the shine? Many thanks in advance. The quote fir respray is about 1.5k for the forester.

    Scratch mark

    My car has a deep scratch mark on the bonnet for almost a year. Recently, the unsightly mark seemed to become more obvious as it darkens in color and makes a stark difference against the white paintwork. I believed it is due to dirt accumulating in the cavity, just like how food remains get trapped in our tooth cavity. Since it was Christmas day and I was idling at home, I decide to do a little experiment with a bottle of liquid clay bar that I bought some time ago. The liquid clay bar is supposed to be a deep cleanser that removes embedded dirt. It has a 3 layer system that contain

  11. As per topic suggests. My area MSCP is undergoing painting works and my car is parked there. Just recently, I saw my ride at rear side is covered by many of the paint specks and cannot be removed by claybar. I do not know what is the correct procedure to remove to remove these specks safely since this is unsightly if my ride is in black. Any advice?

  15. hi. where to find car painter who can do artwork on the entire car external paintwork.
  16. I've never actually bothered much with the tiny scratches received on my car over the years. But recently, while reversing into a very tight space, made tighter by an illegally-parked car , part of the right side of my car was scratched by carpark pillar. Now there's a few streaks of purple paint in a circular area roughly 15 cm in diameter. No dents. I think it's a good time to fix up this problem, and all the other little scratches here and there, by repainting the affected areas. Never done this before, so would appreciate any recommendation of a good place to do this: location prefer
  17. This M6 owner should call Gen2 immediately to save his paintwork. No beading of water at all.
  18. the detailing bug caught me... please enjoy...
  19. Been using Klasse Combo. Once a while use Menzerna HGAS after car wash. Now I noticed the cloth gets a bit dirty after applying HGAS (car wash done of course - using Meiguir NextTech Car Shampoo). If I use AIO, the MF applicator turns black very quickly, rinse in water a few times no use, must leave it overnight in Dynamo for the dirt to disappear. Any suggestions how to "clean" the paintwork surface ? A few rounds of AIO? Claybar?
