Would love to hear from you.

All the best and keep it shining.

Hiren, you can have a look at the Meguiar's used car restoration kit or paint correction kit. This is available on Amazon and can be shipped through shopyourworld.com.

Talking Shop your world package

For all folks who have been waiting for the update on the shop your world package / order

I had ordered the following
- Meguiar's G1016 Smooth Surface Clay Kit and
- Meguiar's C-2000 Professional Detailing Clay, Mild

The package has arrived but only partially

Amazon has split the order into two packages and only one of them has arrived.

The packing is the same as what amazon ships with just an extra tape indicating the shopyourworld involvement !!

Some pics

Amazon.com - box w/ shop your world tape , Box with the tape opened and with clay detailing kit inside the box

Ping me if you have any questions

Time for some detailing

Rest you already have plans of getting clay bar, mf towels, jopasu duster, tyre & alloy shiner.

As for MFs I've used the regular ones sold at BPCL In & Out outlets & Jopasu MFs. Jopasu definitely has a better quality MFs but not certain if they are 600 gsm. You may want to mail BB and check what gsm their MFs are. 600 gsm rating-wise are good MF towels compared to the ones (350 gsm) sold mostly.
My paint condition is quite alright. Yes, I will surely get a shampoo and some interior detailing kit.
I will mail BB guys about the MF rating.

Thanks for the tip.

I am quite averse shopping online and I don't like the rates on these sites. But I will surely consider it after I've had one go with collinite 845.

Thanks

PS:
I've been itching to get something done over this weekend, weather gods permitting.
Whats the bare minimum required?

3 buckets of Water
Car shampoo
Washing cloth (don't have MF, so an old banyan will do)
For detailing I just have Collinite 845 and Formula 1
Some tire foam.

Can I directly apply collinite after drying the car?

Looking forward to some help.

i think as formula 1 has a little abbrasive , so a quick wax with formula 1 then Ipa wipe down then a coat of 845 will do .

looks like a lot of work to do , be prepared , take breaks , work in shade and provide before and after pics !!!


Best of Luck !!!

Old banyan will do but I doubt if it will give you the same buffing effect the MF gives, didn't you get the MF free with the Collinite order from BB?? if yes then its a good MF for buffing post Collinite application.

Yes you can, have a good wash in enclosed shade, let the car drip the water for 10-15mins, dry it up using a good chamois if possible or even a soft-old banyan, allow it to dry itself for next 15-20 mins and then you can apply Collinite-845
Attaching application instructions.
Do post the pre & post Collinite-845 resultant pics

Ok, so will apply a very thin coat of F1, wipe it off and then coat it with collinite.
And thanks for the tips. I just hope the rains stay away.

Any idea about this company Welcome to HIPER SHINE & GROOMING ENTERPRISES

They are based in Chennai and have a few selected Meg's products. Has anyone done any deals with them?

Any item purchased from abroad can be declared as a gift if the buyer is a relative of the end user and is a resident of the country of purchase.

Great method to avoid customs.

@Notorious - At Shopyourworld to ship the ordered item as a duty free gift you just need to provide a valid address + phone no.(outside India) during the time you place the order.

This address is not stored as a part of the login.

Hope this helps

Cheers
