Detailer’s Gathering 2011 at Osren HQ

by Kenneth Tang

Good day everyone! Here are some photos from the latest Do-It-Together(DIT) held last Saturday at Osren. There were many products and machines lying around, and Osren’s company car which was due for a respray. That could only mean one thing, ‘whack only!’.

dschia was also kind enough to share with us his new surbuf and Meguiar’s microfiber pads.

M105 and Surbuf managed to remove 1200 grit sanding marks! Although it left a slightly hazy finish which has to be followed up with a finer combo.

They are talking about the size of abrasives/water beading, in case anyone had other ideas.

The new Flex rotary is so light, you only need your fingertips to guide it!

Then it was time for some supernatural action.

Where the Velvet pad does not reach, hand sanding and wool ball.

Caution is advised.

The two photos below show the strength of water repellency in a wax/sealant.

In the photo above, notice that as soon as the water hits the paint, some of it is flat on the paint. Compare that to the photo below, water repels and bounces back immediately, indicating stronger water repellency.

That’s all the photos I have, apologies for the lack of photos and documentation. Next time, if I bring my camera, I will purely be a photographer, or don’t bring it at all.

Nonetheless, it was a great gathering and was fun talking to everyone. Hope to see you guys soon at the next gathering, do join us for our Teh-Tarik (TT) sessions!

    i guess this is the time you would need a buddy photographer or a co-photographer.

    times when you want to get in on the action as well as document the action.

      Hi Tim!! Wow haven’t heard from you in a long time and didn’t know you have a blog! Malu malu… will be putting a link to your blog in the footer soon.

      The flex-tary(<–lol) belongs to VX55, he bought it in S'pore. Maybe you can shoot him a PM on Autoworld?

      And the site don't need talent, firstly, it's wordpress, it's just gives you that nice look without all the hassle in blogspot. You can play around with it. They also have really nice themes, I definitely recommend wordpress over blogspot.
