Application Process of Modesta BC-03 and Quartz Glass Coating
Our basic application process of the glass coating is as follows depending on the condition of the car:
1. Initial Check-Up
"New car", meaning “newly registered car”, doesn’t mean newly manufactured! Most newly registered cars have been sitting for months since they were manufactured and many are parked outside while they are at shipping yards or at dealers. These cars are frequently wiped with a sponge or cloth without properly rinsing off dust while they are waiting for prospective buyers. It may also have been roughly polished with the incorrect pad or harsh polishing compounds and scratches (swirl marks) are covered by wax before its delivery, so you may not see scratches for a while. (You can go to new car dealer at night and check dark coloured cars under a mercury vapour lamp and you will see if this has happened to a car). We check the condition of the paint and carefully confirm the right procedures for each car. Written confirmation is checked and signed by the customer before we start working, so you can cancel the booking at that time if you like. (Required procedure time for inspection…about 30 mins).
2. Detailed Wash
Wash and remove paint contamination (including: iron powder, overspray, tar, bug residue, tree sap and bird dropping stains)
3. Detailed Dry with Blower
We use an imported sponge cloth made from natural cotton and natural cellulose to wipe away all excess water from the car. We blow away any remaining water underneath the door mirrors, the door handles, the gap around the fuel cap cover and the doors and windows by either a Makita blower or an air compressor. (Required time about 15 mins with 2 engineers)
mask all rubber and plastic parts and emblems in order to avoid
damaging by polishers and compounds. We only use 3M masking tapes.
(Required time from 15mins to 30mins with 2 engineers)
5. Cut & Buffing
2nd Cut: Single Action Polisher & Urethan Pad
Paint surfaces after the cut & buff are quite delicate so we
minimize to touch the car during the washing process. (Required time
about 30 mins with 2 engineers)
7. Detailed Dry with Blower
We use an imported sponge cloth made from natural cotton and natural cellulose. We blow away any remaining water underneath the door mirrors, the door handles, the gap around the fuel cap cover and the doors by using a Makita blower or an air compressor. (Required time about 30 mins with 2 engineers)
We mask all rubber and plastic parts before we apply the liquid glass. We only use 3M masking tapes. (Required time about 15mins with 2 engineers)
9. Applying Glass Coating
Apply liquid glass by using a hand applicator. The liquid glass is applied by the use of a double action polisher and a Japanese car wash microfiber pad if necessary. We use a spray gun for motorcycles and bicycles. (Required time about 2 hour with 2 engineers)
We apply the 2nd glass coat, accelerator or protecting agent in order to protect the surface during this initial period. (Required time about 1 hour with 2 engineers)
10. Final Check
We have a final full check list that involves all of our work to be thoroughly scrutinized to ensure both our satisfaction and yours as well. We also thoroughly clean the car (inside and out) to make sure your car is perfect, awaiting your arrival to pick it up.
