Detailing - JHB ? & A Few Q's

Postby playback » Sat Jan 28, 2017 11:36 am

So , firstly

Who or where are the recommended places for car detailing in JHB preferably around Fourways.
Not sure on the different process but something that is restorative and gets sealed in like I have seen on some of them durban cars here.

Being in a Complex and not being allowed to wash our cars.

Would a regular car wash damage the application that is put on or chemically strip it thus nullifying the cost outlay upfront ?
If so what do guys do ?

To answer your first question : best bet would be Kuvi and he is in that area.

To answer your second question :
In MY OPINION i would say most of car wash's WILL unfortunately inflict or damage our car paint due to the fact that they deal with quantity rather than quality on each wash. these are some of the reasons why i say this :
1. They do not use the 2 bucket wash
2. They use the same old dirty Micro Fibre cloth on 20 cars to dry
3. They use the same old dirty wash Mitt with out cleaning it on car after car and the dirt inflicts swirls on your paint.
4. Some use PH Neutral shampoo's (which is good), BUT some dont and even if they do points 1,2 & 3 will be inflicted on your paint.
5. Their washing techniques are horrible with inflicts swirls on your paint.

These are just some of the reasons why a car wash will damage your paint.

Honestly if you deciding to take your car for a detail and going to take it to your average car wash every weekend (you might as well save your money on the detail cause you just going to damage your paint after every wash.

Remember the clear coat on you paint is really really thin and every time you send your car for a detail or you hand polish you are removing some of the clear coat and depending on what grade polish you use will distinguish how much clear you remove and if done continuously will eventually damage you cars paint work and will = repainting.

If you are really interested in some reading material here is a link for you to go through and this will help you very much.
