Maintaining a matt paintwork…

At AbsoluteGloss Showcar Detailer, we pride ourselves in maintaining / restoring your car to a showroom condition by constantly improving and perfecting the art of paintwork polishing to a state of high gloss. So it is quite a change when we had several matt painted car lined up for detail over the past weeks.

This is a BMW E90 M3 in a special Frozen Grey Metallic, first introduced in a M6 Competition Edition. Having seen many badly executed after-market matt paintwork, I was surprised this colour looks great on a M3, and looks very special indeed!

Matt Paint Detailing by AbsoluteGloss Showcar Detailer

This car was maintained by a ‘detailer’ with little or no knowledge of proper paintwork maintenance and he managed to use a combination of techniques and products that are unsuitable for matt paintwork/matt vinyl wrap/dry carbon fiber and this results in ugly patches all over the vehicle. Luckily no heavy damage was done and we are able to restore and correct the paintwork to an immaculate condition.

Patiently deep cleansed and protected to bring out a nice sheen to the matt paintwork…

CrystalPro VX1 detail…BMW 1M

Somehow, I like this car, alot! To me, it has all the necessary ingredients…manual transmission, nimble, rear wheel drive, superb styling and overall a great drive.

CrystalPro VX1 Glass Coating by AbsoluteGloss Showcar Detailer

This car is only 2 months old and comes with the usual factory swirls and imperfections. The owner wants the paintwork perfected and protected by our CrystalPro VX1 Glass Coat to give it a durable year-round protection and ease of maintenance.

VX1 Glasscoat will give white a radiant shine that no wax or sealant could replicate. It is inert, meaning it’s crystal clear and will not turn yellowish on white paint and makes maintenance & cleaning of pollutants such a simple task…

Swissvax Premium Detail…Aston Martin DB9 Volante

Love to detail any Aston Martin, but I especially fond of those Aston designed by Ian Callum…with it’s masculine curve, I reckoned this shape will still be a classic 20 years from now!

OK…this car came with lots of deep washing swirls as a result of bad wash techniques by owner’s helpers. We performed our popular Swissvax Premium Detail on this one…the end results is a stunning looking, deep lustre, swirl-free paintwork and brings out a glow that showcased the best of the curves.

Surface coating products…

I received quite a few enquiries from some of my clients and regular readers of my blog, referring to some of my entries below as to which vehicle protection coating that I do offer and/or will recommend to them…
(1) Meguiar’s M188 Deep Crystal Coating
(2) G’Zox Quartz Coat 7

Allow me to clarify…I received or are able to obtain quite a few brands of coating products every now and then and I ran some serious real world test on every one of these to assess their performance and suitability for adoption as one of my detailing arsenal. As many of you may know, there has been an upsurge of new coating products entering into the market over the past few months, many of them are passed off as the “real deal” of surface protection or are heavily marketed, usually without any merit or much substantiation. And trust me after testing a bunch of them, it is safe to say that not all surface coating products are created equal…NOT AT ALL!!!

Without going into all the details at this moment of time, please note that I WILL NOT be offering any of these (1) Meguiar’s M-188 (2) AQuartz (3) G’Zox Quartz 7 (4) cQuartz Ceramic Coating (5) gTechniq c1 as a service to my clients! As some of you may know, these are some of the coating products that I have previously tested in-house for a substantial period of time. (1) & (2) above are absolute lemon (despite what the seller initially claimed otherwise) while (3) & (4) do not meet our standard requirement or seller’s marketing claims. gTechniq c1 is the sole exception, but while being a decent coating product by itself, it ultimately falls short of my expectations and do not meet certain criteria that I have set out (sorry Rob…appreciate your support & hoped we could work something out in the future!)

This does not mean that you should not use or try them out (with the notable exception of M-188 & AQuartz which you should avoid at all cost) just that they will not be offered in-house as part of my services.

I hoped this clarify my present position…

This is the water beading protection one should expect 6~9 months after coating...
