Thumbs up KDS Detailing Competition time on Ferrari Enzo total repaint / full on wet sanding

Hi Guys


Welcome to the next and promised KDS Competition thread, I am sure you know the idea.


But if not let me remind you of how it goes with a refresher from the last competition.


http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=239097


So onto this year’s KDS competition with my very good friends DODO Juice and Shinearama.

www.dodojuice.com

www.shinearama.co.uk


The prize for entering (Free I must add to enter) is From Shinearama Scholl Concepts Premium vintage wax £113 RRP

http://www.shinearama.co.uk/product....VINTAGE-200#sf


And from DODO Juice are 4 mystery bottle of loveliness yet to be launched.


Firstly the rules , you must be in the in the UK , is Scotland , wales , England etc and so on, as these are free donated gifts for Fun I have been fair and excluded long haul deliveries to far afield as this can be costly and tricky to deal with.

Plus Only one guess each and an edited guess will NOT be included




So what do you have to do to WIN its simples just a guess like the last KDS thread , this time I have mixed it up a bit to make you think just that little harder.


So a brief quick insight into what been going on at KDS Detailing , and the actual thing you have to guess to win.

So here goes.


The car is question does not need an introduction as you will see from the photos coming, let’s just say we have been working on the car and the hours are now close to 4 figures to complete, yes that’s right 1000 hours.

Full version will be soon along with a few “other” surprises too, hopefully very soon.

So here are a few photos to get the competition started,










The car has had full total re spray in same colour as before , it was with KDS to improve on the standard factory finish with full entire wet sand of ALL surfaces.











The process used is to achieve the finish required (very quick version) was to prep the car and any stone chips and damage , then completely repaint car panels all separately, this was primer / colour coat (base coat) and then lacquer top coat , bake for correct time and temp and then leave to settle.


Fully wet sand with block technique the new fresh paint and let it settle for a week , then to fully repaint the entire car again this time with just clear coat and repeat the process of bake wet sand block and by hand on last grades , and then finally machine polish back.











Even the insides of the door got full wet sand treatment








Here is a video clip of correcting back wet sanded paint surface


http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=263338



A few teaser shots of thing to come (mind you I have left out many other things for later thou)



























And a few very close up around headlight after correcting back the fully wet sanded paint













So the competition part all you have to do is guess how much paint we used on the entire car , this being the colour and lacquer coats only .

To put a spin on it we want the guess to be in a weight form , units being grams .

To help you .
Colour coat ½ a litre







And this is it weight for ½ litre of colour coat (base coat)





The same goes for the clear coat (lacquer top coat)







I will repeat the process , whole car inside and out has been 3 coloured coats first (remember not a colour change) and then 2 coats of clear coat.

Then the clear coat (only) process repeated.



So guess the amount used as a combined amount then convert into grams the nearest guess will get those lovely prizes simples.


I will run the competition for a month then give the correct answer and the closest guess.


I will repeat one guess each entry and edited guesses wont count.



And lastly IF you did not know I have 2 group training days soon with DODO Juice and Shinearama


http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=260440



http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=261401



I tried my best to cover most of the country too.




So many thanks for viewing the thread , and greater things to come in the future , place your guess and fire away with any questions.

Good luck to everyone

Best regards Kelly

Photobucket is having a wobbler rob .
