Another flawless finish from KDS - I very much doubt Bugatti themselves could make it look this good!

Very nice video with great editing.


Anyone else find themselves getting closer to the edge of their seat as the Veyron is maneuvered out of the workshop before loading?


Welldone KDS Team!

Very inpressive stuff and this time really does need the tag of "Pro use only"

It looked quite easy to spread but it should remove quickly?
Are you using sponge to spreading product? How much you use it?

Kelly, that's awe-inspiring! The paint looks like a mirror somehow tightly stretched across the contours of the car.

And Alan wins a small the prize for being so observant, We have been using brand new washed / tumbled dried cloths cut into small squares for C1 and any other products (not just Gtechniq) as we find these are kinder to the painted surfaces than make up cleaning pads, in the very early days we had cars coming into KDS that had C1 applied by outside sources using the supplied make up pads with marring , this was due to the person applying had not changed the pad many times while coating the vehicle so it was starting to crystallise on the pad (remember it cures like shards of glass ) more noticeable on small dark coloured cars.

If you were to change the make pads say every panel it should be fine even more so as the later c1 is slower curing due to this issue.
But for KDS we don’t take the chance of undoing all the hard work so use microfibre instead this does mean more product being soaked into the cloths thou so more wastage (if tiny) .

Exo V2 we used foam blocks with thin sponge backing and wrap suede cloths around the block.

Crystal serum needs plenty of product to spread well so mricofibre holds more to aid the application, the key here is clean as possible working environment and fast application per panel and then really go over checking the area with light sources (direct and indirect light) you done has all been wipe with absolutely no smears or residue left, if you were to coat entire car then notice at end it will be too late to remove.

You have to consider that temp/humidity/person applying will affect the outcome it will take some practice to get it spot on , we did just this "practice" on our own training panels and demo panels on the wall , we managed to place a lot of marring when experimenting with application.

"Pro use only"

Regards kelly
