Other members interested in witnessing the surface rejuvenation first hand were invited over to see the swirls being banished.
We had already done most of the car, just had a couple of sections left and thought it good to have members who wanted to see the process,come over to see the completion.

The following TBHP members turned up to witness the event- VMC, H_Zoom. We had a lot of discussions ranging from car detailing to latest cars on the road.
After we were done with, the results were amazing, even exceeded our expectations. The i20 paint is really great, as expected from a premium offering in the hatchback segment.

Overall a fun day especially for the happy owner who was ecstatic to see the outcome! Some pics, before and after the work was done.
Looking forward to the next meet, which maybe the next time we do a BHPians car.
Just to add- the "we" means me(MKH) and Nirmal. We are a deadly duo now in the detailing world

Thanks for the wishes guys, its been a lot of people who inspired us to venture out in this field, including Sohail, Garigapol and surely Rudra- who created this thread.
We had done the SX4 for a BHPian, waiting for pics from him- sanjay if you get the time, do post pics, would love to see how it came out finally
Looking forward to meeting up more BHPians in the following detailing sessions.

Guys..
I witnessed the I20 being transformed into a brand new shining car.Ofcourse it take a lot of hard work, good equipement and knowledge of good products in the market.
Great work by Nirmal and MKH. Kudos to you guys...
The mini Team-BHP meet was a huge success and a great knowlegde sharing session. Best of all...is when you meet "like-minded" people..it works like magic....

We had the proud privilege of doing up the Thread Starters pride and joy- Rudra ji's black optra last sunday. It got planned so fast, we could not invite anyone, really wish we had. However it was an experience of a lifetime, am awaiting his pics to appear, we had taken a few and posted them on our FB accounts, but the master photographers pics will be awesome for sure. It was the hardest and MOST satisfying task we ever have taken so far. We were floored by the outcome, the quality of paint on it was great indeed.

Vaseem/Captain Slow/Sagar padaki - Thanks , we will surely invite other members in batches for the sessions !

VMC/Micrographics/Raghu - Thanks for your encouragement & support, it was a pleasure to meet like minded members & have a good discussion on auto related stuff too !

Thanks to Sohail & Garipagol & other members who have been sharing their knowledge on detailing !

As MKH has mentioned, it was a real honor to detail Rudra Sir's car the last weekend. Thanks to him starting the thread which was the start of an exciting journey into the world of detailing ! it got planned on a very short notice & wish the end results could be witnessed by other detailing enthusiasts. The sight of the gleaming black beauty just took our breath away Our pictures would not be able to do justice to bring out the true effect of the finished beauty, hence will wait for Sir to post the pictures !
