Hi all,

My apologies to those who enquired from interstate. We only operate in Sydney at this stage. May look into opening up a branch in Melbourne in 2013.

TWD .. can i get your input on taping up the car before detailing.. do you think that it is necessary with all the new waxes which are rubber safe and don't leave residue?

Hi J1n,

It depends what needs to be done (during compounding/polishing stage)

9/10 times you should tape the car up but it does depend on what the polish is like and what areas you are working on.

The rubbers should be taped up, otherwise your rotary or DA has a strong possibility of damaging seals. Other grilles and delicates should be taped up too.

Also, when working with certain cars (usually supercars) or in difficult areas, it pays to tape up other parts of the car (edges or angled panels). Why? So you can concentrate on one particular area rather than worrying about your machine affecting another panel.

Here's an example from an F355 GTS we worked on:

Taped up either side of the targa top...




Taped up every grille in the engine lid...



I had originally taped up all those rubber seals around the lid as well, but had been removed prior to that photo
I don't have photos of it, but the C pillars on the Ferrari need to be taped up when you are working on the rear guard, so your machine doesnt start cutting/polishing the perpendicular panel.
Then the opposite panel (rear guard where it meets C pillar) is taped up so you can work on C pillar.

Hope this helps out mate

Hey Jin, what exactly are you wanting to do? If it's just wax, you should be able to safely wax these areas with whatever wax you are using on the paintwork

Sorry for not being clear .. You know how scratches get on to the chrome panels like the grills .. would any chrome polish do fine to bring the shine back ? Or rather how would you attend to damaged chrome parts of the car.

For metal parts, you can use a reputable metal polish.

For other coated plastics including chrome look grilles, etc you can use polish to buff out scratches, depending on their severity. There are also plastic polishes available. Really depends what you are trying to rectify. Sometimes scratches on plastic are hard to correct.
