As usual, we have selected one of the members' car as a show car for this sort of event. The owner of this car had brought this car to the Sepang International F1 Circuit several times. This results in plenty of stonechips and scratches on the paintwork. The following steps had been done to restore the paintwork of this Energy Orange Proton Gen2 to near perfect condition.

M85/W4000/RB
M83/W8006/RB
M80/W8006/RB
M82/W9006/RB
M21/W9006/DA

This event was held successfully today. Would like to say a big thank you to Gen2 Club members for attending this event and showing the interest and enthusiasm towards detailing.

Photos below show the result of the show car after 2 days of extreme makeover.

Making sure the car is detailed...

Slightly different from the past detailing clinics, we have selected one of the members' car for demonstrating proper washing technique.

The car hasn't been washed for months...

Disgusting...

Now, back to this disgusting thing, it was sprayed down with Hot Rims All Wheel Cleaner to dissolve the caked on brake dust...

It's important to have clean tyres prior to dressing, just like washing your face before putting on moisturizer...:D

The car was driven out from the washing bay to the detailing bay. It's time for a proper drying with Microfiber Super Suede Drying Towel...

Members were asked to feel the surface bonded contaminants with a plastic wrapper. I guess he was laughing at the owner...:D

Mist Quick Detailer over the surface and clay it...

This is just after a single pass...

We recommended Scratch-X for hand application...
