KDS Detailing Wet Sand diary BMW M3 limited edition blue

HI Guys

So its been a while since I last posted on DW.
Many new things happening at KDS , with some great news for 1 maybe 2 lucky people ,to be announced next week.

So lets try and do something slightly different, hence the title “KDS wet sand diary”.




So to achieve the above finish is not only machine correction and products , its more so in the wet sanding and “ART” of selecting the correct grades with correct backing , and final correct pressures.

I am sure most of you are aware of the KDS wet sand details we carry out, if your not that aware let me guide you to some of our older past work of such packages.

Toyota supra repaint and wet sand.

BMW M3 wet sand detail

BMW M5 wet sand detail with a twist

Nissan wet sand detail

BMW E46 M3 wet sand detail

http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=244523


So to the concept of the diary ,
I will be uploading batches of photos with short description of the progress being made over the coming weeks of the Platinum wet sand package.

http://www.kdskeltec.co.uk/price-men...kages/wet-sand


If you read the thread links and think I liked to learn “how to master that” there are actually a few ways of doing so.

First and closest way time wise is at waxstock

Details here

Then you have the next group option held at the KDS workshop.
Keep your eye out on the machine correction section for more updates.
A few group training days from the past (same section as new updates)

And last but not least are the one 2 one training days

that is some crusty paint - bm took a big gamble on switching to powder coating - depressing to see how rubbish their finishes continue to be.

Look forward to seeing it, are BMW's really finished that badly these days? I know it'll look amazing when you've finished with it.
By filming it won't you be giving away some trade secrets?!

Not really; anyone can buy sandpaper and rub it on paint, it's the experience and skill in reading the job in hand that makes Kelly an expert. That level can't be picked up from videos and pics

Not a chance would I try it. I've seen a lot of people wet sand their cars ( on here ) very successfully pro's and amateurs . Seeing it done and actually doing it well lets just say my bank account would be light if I felt the need to have it done . For a few reasons really, but mostly because I'm a wuss I think. Even with all the reading and watching videos I still wouldn't have the confidence or the skill to put the **** ups right I'd made. Credit to all those who have the can do attitude and have been successful . If you do try mate good luck to you
My Dad has this say when attempting something which may me above my pay grade . You can always get away with paying . Which to be honest I wouldn't mind doing ,its just the fact I'd buggered it up in the first place and the look on the pros face who more likely than not will know exactly where I went wrong
