Default Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)

I've always wanted to come across a Passionate Person when it comes to Detailing, albeit not on his own car but others. Living in the Hub of Car Accessories Shops, Lajpat Nagar I daily come across instances of a new Car being Buffed with a 3M Finishing Compound or something else in the name of Teflon Coating at Rates as high as 1500 to 2000. Since my Ecosport's Quotation had a Package for Paint Protection and Underbody at a total of Rs. 8000 I decided to opt out and very seriously checked out NOTORIOUS's Facebook Page and indeed I had a like-minded guy who can Professionally Undertake the Initial Paint Protection to my Liking and Cost Factors since I'm more of a Fan of DIY thingy with a not-so-expensive Range of Products.

My Experience as a Customer and as an Detailing Enthusiast shall follow in the next post, this one will solely focus on the Required Content.

The Car in Concern is a Ford Ecosport, Chill Colour and a Week old. The Dealership guys as we all know sprinkle all sorts of Greasy Solutions on the Tyres and Plastic Trims to give that Wet Look but eventually it becomes a Dust Magnet and further, Windshield and Windows had Oily Stains due to a Greasy Cloth used to Wipe them.

On the first Sunday after Delivery, I washed the Car with Sonax Car Shampoo and removed all the Greasy Stains and leftovers I could find on the car eventually preparing it for the Paint Protection Treatment due next day with Jaspreet at Motor Concept. I preferred going over there since it was my First Time with a Professional Detailer and I wanted to gain first-hand knowledge about the Brands, Pads and other related things which I knew were at his disposal and otherwise seen or heard on the Forum itself.
Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-dsc_0597.jpg <br />
Reached there by 12 Noon on Monday since I knew Monday being a Lean Day, rush will be less at Motor Concept and otherwise, Detailing Jobs are only as per Appointment.<br /> <br />
I had conveyed before hand to Jaspreet that I need a Cheaper Solution since I will regularly Wax the Car myself in Future and the Solution decided included Waterless Wash, Claying, Waxing and Sealant Application apart from Glass Cleaning and Tyre Dressing which were asked there and then only. Total Damage to the Wallet was 3000 Bucks but worth the price as the pictures convey.<br /> <br />
First, a Paint Thickness Meter was used to understand the Paint Job at various panels.<br /> <a href=Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-dsc_0544.jpg <br />
He insisted to remove Ecosport's Spare Wheel to detail the Boot but I was initially against the very idea, in sort the 'Chalta Hai' attitude but had to give-in. The car was Clayed, Wiped and then Collinite 845 Wax was applied and allowed to dry for 45 Minutes and during this time, the Components were being installed. <br /> <a href=Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-dsc_0543.jpg <br />
My Dad was totally against a Polisher being used to Buff the Car and Jaspreet used a Microfiber to Manually Buff the Wax off. I thought Collinite 845 to be an easy Buff Job but it remotely reminded me of the Waxpol debacle I had on my Santro due to Overshooting the Appropriate Drying Time.<br /> <a href=Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-dsc_0574.jpg <a href=Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-dsc_0577.jpg <br />
Upon the Wax Job, Jaspreet used some Silica based Sealant to ensure lasting sheen and gloss of the Job. Well, I really don't know what exactly Paint Protection means in Technical Terms but I never wanted the use of Abrasives in my Treatment and thankfully none was included nor needed.<br /> <a href=Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-dsc_0581.jpg <br /> <br />
What I really appreciate was Attention to Detail when he even cleaned the inner edges of the Rear Wind-shield, a store house for Dust.<br /> <br />
The Result <img src=
Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-dsc_0603.jpg <br />
After preparing the car, we headed to Delhi War Cemetery for a Photo-Shoot since I wanted a Good Location for my yet-to-come Ownership Review. This Cemetery in Delhi Cantonment is a Peaceful Place and an Artistically Planned Creation. Respect to All the Soldiers from the Pre-Independence Era resting there.<br /> <a href=Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-dsc_0674.jpg <a href=Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-img_5271.jpg <br />
It was a Delightful Experience since this being the first new car in the family, Jaspreet did a Fabulous Job and the Photoshoot Pictures came out very well! I had always admired Team BHP Official Reviews and I eventually managed to copy some of their Angles for my Ownership Review <img src=

Looks fantastic!! How long is the paint protection expected to last before it needs a touch-up? How consistent was the paint thickness across panels before the treatment and was there any difference in thickness before and after the treatment?


Sorry for so many questions, but I just had to ask them!

Congratulations, your car looks great!

91microns is thin paint, general rule of thumb is avoid compounding if the paint thickness is below 100microns. If possible please get a read out from Jas on what the paint thickness is on every panel, I'm a bit shocked to see Ford skimping on paint

Congrats on your car, it looks shiney as mirror after the job. Woth your wait .

Wow, a Paint Thickness Meter to guage the work needed on different panels? Sounds interesting but does it actually matter unless hard buffing is there?

See, since I'm in Delhi I'm most prone to Scorching Summer and not Salt or Snow Residues so in my case, it should last longer but how long, that shall be answered in due course of time. Maybe another BHPian can comment better.

Paint Thickness varies across various Panels since he checked the same at various points, overall even he pointed that the Thickness is less but I don't remember the figures much since I was more surprised seeing the Instruments than taking the readings.

Paint thickness wasn't measured after the treatment but shall try the next time to see if Wax helps add some Microns.

Thanks a lot SunnyBoi! I'll meet him soon to buy Collinite 845 from him and ask him to bring the Instrument along to gather the data, shall post then.

Even he was surprised at the figures but I'm yet to understand how much of a difference it makes. What I comprehend is that this particular Colour (Chill) has a lighter tone hence, less coats to achieve the desired results. I maybe wrong though!

Thanks a lot Jacs! I'm happy at being a BHPian, it saved me from the Roadside Polish Wallas.

Since I'm a layman, it won't matter much to me unless hard buffing is there but even then, I don't think it'll make much of a difference even with hard buffing unless one over-buffs and burns the paint.

Further, if Wet-Sanding is required then the Paint Thickness is actually of great importance. His Facebook page had a pic of a Black Merc whose Bonnet I think was Wet Sanded, it came out very well.

Congratulations on your new car. The car looks gorgeous, it is an interesting color choice. Normally people opt for White, Chill Red etc.

By the way can you post the Dry Film Thickness (DFT) of the paint on various locations? It would be interesting to know. In my opinion, all horizontal and vertical panels will be of uniform thickness. Because they will be painted with robots. There will be difference in panel and door edges.

Looking forward your ownership thread.

MaxTorque, I will do the needful at the earliest. Further, thanks for mentioning the term DFT, an addition to my knowledge.

Khoj Ji, thanks a lot Sir! Installed Kicker ES65.2 Components in the car. I had actually taken my old Sub, Amp and Wiring for installation but just couldn't witness all the scrapping of panels and drilling holes from the engine bay, eventually called it off! They had undertaken the job earlier on Ecosports so Expertise and Ability wasn't questionable but I just couldn't witness that. Asked Aman (from Motor Concept) to just upgrade Front Speakers to Components and that too Budget ones but capable of delivering Good Bass. He shortlisted Kicker and Polk for me, auditioned both and found Kicker to be more clear. Further, instead of MDF Rings I went in for WaterGuard Plastic Rings. Total upgrade costed around 6k!

Was back at Dazzle today for the 2nd post six months decontamination session included with Max Protect UNCR.

The water-spot type etchings that had formed on the bonnet (IMO due to ProKlear WWC drying up) were also taken care of.<br /> <br /> <a href=Professional Car Detailing - Sparkle Detailing (Delhi)-act1.png <br />
Also picked up more of their self formulated QD. It's bloody good!<br /> <br />
Got decanted quantities of Meguiar's APC, D120 glass cleaner and Hyperdressing too.<br /> <br />
Thank you! @Jaspreet from helping me source Hyperwash after my ordered one gallon container was damaged by Amazon transportation and the seller delisted the product indefinitely.</div>   <div style=

I can see that the people involved are wearing heavy buckled belts. I can't see how they can possibly avoid scraping the paint.
