Event: Team Hyundai Malaysia gathering at Osren Malaysia
A great Saturday gathering of Team Hyundai Malaysia members at Osren Malaysia. Featuring the orange peel reducing Osren P40 Compound on a black Hyundai Avante, Osren’s new degreaser, and some Domino’s Pizzaaaaa (one three hundred triple three, triple eight).
The event started with some theory briefing by Henry, the Senior Product Technician at Osren. Highlighting the rules of basic car care as well as paint technology.
*Is this orange cordial?*
After the theory presentation, we all headed downstairs for practical demonstration, which is more effective than showing photos and words on a slide.
As with all details, it starts with the wash. Henry washes the car using a Lake Country grout sponge with Osren’s Bubble and Wax shampoo (the orange cordial).
With the bodywork washed, it’s time to get the wheels clean and shiny using Osren’s new cleaner, Degreaser FX (what a cool name for a degreaser!).
With the wheels done, attention is turned back to the paint and it was as rough as sandpaper! Osren’s Magic Cloth is used to smoothen the surface. This is a very important step if you want to achieve excellent slickness and smoothness from your paintwork.
The car is then dried and driven into the detailing bay. This is where the halogen lamp revealed the shocking surface condition to the club members.
Weapon of choice was the Dodo Juice Das 6 Buff Daddy and some Osren Perfect Cut 2.0 polish (not shown in photo).
After polishing, surface is protected with Osren Paste Sealant.
And the results?
Remember what it used to look like?
Pretty good results with just a Dual Action polisher!
The paint was feeling really smooth and slick. It is also repelling water nicely, as compared to the right hand side where water sticks to the paint, indicating a lack of protection (unwaxed).
The next step is…. Domino’s Pizzaaaaaa~
*Orange and grape cordial*
*Coolest degreaser name, ever*
After lunch, it was time to show what a full-fledged Osren Surface Preparation system would produce.
*The condition of the bonnet*
The bonnet had swirls, watermark etchings, heavy orange peel, you name it.
Henry started by leveling the paint with Osren Perfect Forty (P40) Compound and a Velvet Pad.
That’s probably the coolest way I’ve seen anyone applying polish on the paint.
Mr. Heng, the founder of Osren, explaining how to see the difference in the reflection of the ceiling’s straight fluorescent light tubes. The straighter it is, the less orange peel it has, the sharper the reflection, the greater the gloss, the happier we are.
“Are you sure you can get that straight?”
After the heavy leveling, buffer marks are lightened using Osren Perfect Cut 3.0 and a Lake Country 4-ply twisted wool pad.
Followed up with Osren Perfect Cut 2.0 on a Dodo Juice Das 6 Buff Daddy dual-action polisher.
“I’d like to introduce to you Mr. Heng, Mr. Heng and Mr. Heng.”
And the results after the full surface prep?
The ability to level without any sandpaper, thanks to Osren Perfect Forty (P40) compound.
Everyone is admiring the result.
The finish is then protected with Osren paste sealant followed up by paste wax.
Now that’s what you call reflection perfection.
The rest of the car is then finished up with Osren Perfect Cut 2.0.
A detailed car won’t look good with dull and brown tires.
Osren LV Tire Shine (LV=Low Viscocity) is used.
*These guys have a heavy responsibility of keeping tires in Malaysia shiny*
The owner putting on some finishing touches.
Big thank you to Team Hyundai Malaysia for attending the workshop and to Osren Malaysia for hosting it! Great ending to a great weekend. 🙂
