Master detailer Jay Purcell from Miglior Detailing send us a series of pictures and a story covering his latest project; a lovely Dark Blue Porsche 996 Turbo, which is ten-years-old now. The customer requested light correction detail to remove around 85-90 percent of the defects, full wheel refurbishment, leather detail, brake caliper re-finish and brake hub refinish. Swissvax Australia believe there should be no compromise when making their waxes and hence only the best natural oils and Brazilian carnauba waxes are used.
The car was taken outside and thoroughly washed, then brought in for the real work to begin! The photos show after a wash how many swirls there were in the paint. This robbed the paint from its true colour and clarity. Ten years of bad washes have no doubt caused this, according to Jay.
The car was clayed, dried and they then inspected the paintwork under various lighting to spot any repairs if any. They also checked the paint thickness. They moved onto the paint correction stages. The following all demonstrate the amount of defects removed from the clear coat, bringing back the colour shine and gloss. Please note the after shots were taken before any refining.
As with a lot of Porsches, unfortunately the rear wiper has been placed down incorrectly and cut through the paint. This is worryingly common, which sucks. To fully repair this the whole rear quarter would need repainting plus blending any surrounding panels. The owner asked Jay what he could do. In the end there was still evidence of it, as the scratch has gone through the clear coat, but no longer a ghastly mess on the panel.
Some more before/after photos of various areas during paint correction. Under Metal Halide lighting to properly show up the defects, plus IPA wipe downs.
Now it was time to get the wheels off the car for the next stage of the job. The calipers had suffered during the years, and the discs were looking tired. The lacquer on the calipers had failed due to brake fluid leaking on them during servicing.
Now the wheels had really seen better days. These were fully refurbished.
Now, all that’s been done all the finishing items were carried out including: seals, panel gaps dusted, arches dressed, tyres dressed, paint waxed, exhaust tips, glass cleaned and sealed, and many other items were done as well.
The paint was waxed with Swissvax Shield. The carpets were cleaned and extracted as much as they could be. They came up quite well for ten-year-old fabric! All the leather inside was properly cleaned and protected. The owner was over the moon with how fresh the leather looked afterwards!
This is the final result! Feel free to share your opinion on the final result.

You are in the car suppliers display room. You have actually just accepted purchase a brand new car.

You re believing Hang on. I’ve simply gotten a brand new vehicle. Why does it need its paint shielding? Exists glitch with it?
You might be soothed to recognize that there is absolutely nothing incorrect with the paint on your glossy brand-new motor vehicle. When you drive it out of the display room it is going straight out into the Australian weather condition and, unless you have a garage area, that is where it is going to stay up until either you market it, or it comes to the end of its life. Shielding automobile paint on new vehicles is simply good sense.
Why Does My Vehicle Required Protection From The Weather?
There are 2 or three ordeals that weather could do to your car s paint. Initially, the ultra violet rays of the sun could induce oxidation and premature fadng of the paint in a similar style to the damage they could do to your skin. The sun in Australia can obtain exceptionally very hot and, as compared to a gloomy country like Germany, for instance, shines for many more hrs each year.
Acid rainfall will also have an effect on the paint surface area. A hailstorm could do harm also. If you live near the coast, you will usually find on a windy day that the car is covered with salt which has been blown off the sea. If you park near the water s edge your automobile can acquire covered in sea spray.
OK, I Can See That. Anything Else?
There most definitely is. Birds. A simple bird dropping could trigger harm to your paintwork within a matter of a few days. Without going into as well graphic organic detail, bird droppings come from the intestinal system of birds and typically contain higher quantities of acid which, of course, will certainly ruin the paint. Extremely frequently, you may simply not discover bird droppings, or you could notice them and think to yourself that you will wash them off at the weekend break whereby time the damage may have been done.
If all that wasn’t good enough there is then the little matter of damages caused by particles rocks, grit and so on- regurgitated by other automobiles on the road. It isn t a matter of possibly your paint will acquire damaged, it is simply a question of when. A big variety of windscreens are damaged by flying things yearly, yet far more stones will strike the front of the automobile. You can be unlucky and obtain your initial paint chip a mile from the showroom!
Why Else Should I Acquire Paint Protection?
Securing auto paint on brand-new vehicles follows the well held concept that avoidance is much better than remedy. There are several advantages, not the least of which is that a vehicle with excellent paintwork is visiting retrieve a much better rate when it concerns time for offering it on and acquiring a brand-new one.
One more benefit is that, while you still own it, your car looks in showroom disorder at all times because it IS in display room problem. As a matter of fact, it is in much better compared to display room health condition. Nonetheless, even a more mature automobile could be transformed into a point of charm when given a brand-new lease of life with paint protection.
There absolutely are. With a great paint protection on your car you will locate that it is easier to wash, since dirt and crud will certainly wash away much more quickly, along with lifeless flies, insects, and more, thus saving you time. Another perk is that there is no longer any sort of necessity for polishing.
Why Shouldn’t I Merely Use Wax? It Would Be Far Cheaper.
There is absolutely no question that wax will certainly provide your new automobile an excellent luster. Nonetheless, auto wax is called that since it is mostly comprised of wax. As everyone beings aware, wax thaws in heat. The hotter it acquires, the faster the wax melts. Under the very hot Australian sunlight the wax is going to melt earlier as opposed to later, therefores that it will shed shine and be prone to catching dust and various other pollutants.
Wax will ultimately clean off your vehicle leaving the surface of the paint unsafe. Some auto waxes can in fact get rid of the leading layer of paint and it is as well to remember that your automobile has a restricted number of paint layers.
Can I Apply Paint Protection Products Myself?
You can. However, as with several points in life, you are much better off getting the job done expertly. To start with, if you apply paint protection yourself you will not get any type of guarantee for the straightforward factor that the maker of the item you are making use of doesn’t understand whether you will apply it correctly.
One very prominent supplier who gives a warranty on the product especially mentions that their product has to be used by a certified installer or their service warranty is void.
Many professional bodywork detailing businesses will supply you a guarantee for the job that they do. This won t expand to points such as mishaps or damages created by bodily impact of stones, and so on.
The Car I Am Purchasing Has a Decade Guarantee On The Paintwork.
Absolutely. It might well have. You must check out the small print. The paint itself could have a warranty, however if you check out the proprietor s hand-operated you will certainly likely see that it is a condition that the paint is safeguarded by waxing at regular periods! It is additionally remarkably not likely that this would cover marks from acid or bird droppings, and from chips induced by stones thrown up by other automobiles.
Simply Inform Me The Benefits of Paint Protection Again.
Sure. Just what you are obtaining is a car that is going to look in better than display room disorder at the same time you possess it. You won’t need to polish or polish it. Cleaning is quicker and much easier. When you pertain to offer it you will certainly obtain a much better price for it due to the fact that it still looks best. You couldn’t really request a lot more from any type of product.

Are you thinking about snow? I am. We’re already planning for our 2017-18 family ski season so we can get the best ski season pass deals for families. To guide you through the options, once again, I’ve sweated the details to put together our round-up of ski/snowboard season passes. Preparing for another ski and snowboard season in Canada is really exciting especially if you have got a ski canada deals or promos.
Wait, before I get ahead of myself. I know not everyone believes in ski season passes. I get it. This can be a large purchase, especially if you add the kids in. But remember this, sometimes you’ve got to spend to save!
Here are the top four reasons you need to buy a ski season pass:
Money. No one ever said skiing was cheap. Sometimes I feel like I might as well open my wallet on the chair lift and toss out $20s. But experienced parents know getting a season pass can save you a bundle in the long run.
Convenience: You’ll never have to wait in a ticket line again. Seriously, last year at Vail I waited in a 60 minute line for the “privilege” to buy a $120 lift ticket. Being bitter is no way to start your ski day.
Usage. A pass is pure magic when it comes to viewing winter as a “gift.” It’ll turn a so-so day into a ski day. Why? You won’t feel like you have to pay for “just a few runs.” If you’ve skied with tots (or tweens for that matter), you know enthusiasm can ebb and flow. The beauty of a season pass is that you are always in GO mode. Bottom line: Getting a ski season pass guarantees more family time on the slopes.
Variety. Passes are designed by master marketers. They build in all the little perks to get you to spend more days on snow and to try new resorts. With a pass you literally have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Venture off the beaten path on the hunt for fresh pow.

Bachelor, Nakiska Ski Area, Okemo Mountain Resort, Pico Mountain, Snowshoe Mountain, Solitude, Steamboat, Stevens Pass Resort, Stoneham, Stratton Mountain, Sugarloaf, Sunday River, The Summit at Snoqualmie, Tremblant, Wachusett Mountain Ski Area, Winter Park Resort. Plus, Belleayre Mountain, Gore Mountain, Granite Peak, Lutsen Mountains, Whiteface Mountain, and Windham Mountain,
We love the M.A.X. Pass because it doesn’t play favorites to a certain geography. Last year we bought M.A.X. passes and used them at 10 different resorts–trying new mountains was half the fun!

With election season approaching, there will soon be signs everywhere you look. We provide a limited range of quality vehicle signage Sydney products with super fast twenty hour production times.
The purpose of these political signs planted here, there and everywhere is to sell a candidate or a concept. . . to brand their likeness into our minds before we pull the lever or punch the chad.
For the next several months, we will see placards popping up on virtually every highway and byway . . . and in far too many yards.
If one sign is good, two has to be better. Does the one with the most signs win?
So how come businesses cannot do the same thing? They cannot because the same politicians who pollute our landscape at election time are the very ones responsible for the sign codes that regulate and restrict signs for business . . . and everyone else!
The outcome is predictable: only politicians can have signs (lots of them!). Businesses can also have signs but darn few and only by purchased permit.
Do not get me wrong. Sign codes and restrictions are desirable and necessary . . . but the same sign codes should be in play for all entities: businesses as well as political candidates and causes?
When was the last time you voted for a person or an issue that had the most signs scattered over the countryside?
In addition, when do thnk was the last time a politician paid for an election sign permit? Now there is a revenue stream we have not yet tapped!
Back to signs for business. The purpose of business signs is to increase public awareness of your business.
Your sign conveys what you do or sell to prospects, customers and passersby. What do we actually see in most business signs?
Almost without exception, business signs are tastefully laid out, color-coordinated, well proportioned . . . and utterly predictable.
Net effect? Many business signs come across as invisible! Not noticeable. Often not readable.
Many businesses make four primary mistakes regarding their signage:
1. They under spend on this crucial facet of their business.
The size, cost and look of your exterior sign should be part of your original marketing plan and not come as an afterthought. Your sign is one place you should not economize. It is often a one-time investment and needs to be right from the get-go.
2. They try to cram too much information into the space available.
Signs need to be easy to read from vehicles that most often are traveling too fast. Just like print ads, never try to cram 5 lbs. of potatoes into a one-pound sack.
3. They attempt to blend in to their surroundings.
Blending in works in some situations but often you want your sign to stand out.
That does not mean your signage needs to be garish or Las Vegas like. Stay away from cursive and/or exotic lettering. Save that for your thank you notes.
People need to be able to notice and read your sign from a distance and usually at speeds above the posted limit.
4. They erect their sign too high (especially signs in town.
Most signs should be windshield height so that they can actually be read as people whiz by.
Tall signs are fine for freeways but rarely work in most other locations.
Your sign company can help you with design, readability and sign code restrictions. Erecting effective business signs in NOT a do-it-yourself project. Big mistake.
Here is the skinny on typical business sign code and restriction issues:
1. Virtually all local governments regulate the construction, materials, electrical or other operating components (size, numbers and location) of business signs.
Rely on your sign vendor to guide you through this maze. These rules not only change often but also sometimes are subject to subjective interpretation.
Remember that the sign code enforcement officer rules.
2. Business signs are considered commercial speech and as such have protection from unlawful government interference under the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Under the Fourteenth Amendment,local governments are required to provide due process and equal treatment to all applicants as part of the sign permitting process (politicians presently excepted!)
3. There are federal laws protecting a sign company or business owner when someone tries to copy the design, artwork, or wording of a business sign without authorization.
I recall a case in Denver where a West Colfax motel constructed an expensive neon sign: Bugs Bunny Motel complete with a replica of the hare himself.
That motel was forced to make an expensive re-do eliminating all semblance of the trademarked Bugs Bunny name and logo.
4. Finally, whether a business owns or leases their sign,it is a business asset and receives the same tax treatment as any other tangible business property.
Do your homework regarding your sign.
Like many other things, you only have one chance to make a first impression.

When you draw a picture do you think about creating a story?
Would you concern yourself about what your painting says?
It doesn’t matter what art materials and tools you use to create your drawings and paintings, unless the picture you create has a history it can never be a success. Concept artist exclusively represents an elite class of artists and packaged entertainment programs that are tailored toward specific performance settings and applications, event themes, brand identity and other objectives.
Many beginners wouldn’t realize that their drawings and paintings should have a message.
Drawing can be done with graphite pencils, charcoal and chalks… but unless your sketch weaves its magic story your hard work is lost.
Top artists spend a great deal of time and energy weaving magic and mystery in their paintings and drawings…
It doesn’t matter whether they paint with watercolor, oils, acrylics or pastels… The artist understands the extra value given by the story that their art tells.
At a recent exhibition, an artist told me the story behind a series of 3 paintings. It was a story about “The Walk Of The Dead”. In the 3 paintings she showed abstract moorland scenes that followed the route of the ancient dead, who were carried over the hills to the burial grounds… the final painting showing the release of human spirit.
Until the story was told, I didn’t understand that there was meaning in the artist’s paintings… they were just pleasant daubs. After listening to the story, the paintings came to life. They became important… I bought one of the artist’s paintings.
- Cave paintings told about the animals that were hunted by prehistoric man and the world they lived in.
- Medieval paintings could pay tribute to the church and tell the story of creation… with the art patrons included as if they were part of that story.
Modern art is fortunate… it is able to speak freely about anything the artist wants to say.
“What stories do your drawings and paintings tell?”
Don’t worry, it isn’t difficult for an artist to create art that features a storyline. Even the simplest of sketches has a story. Unlike most photographs, which are just a snapshot in time, a sketch takes time to draw.
Because it takes time to produce a drawing, painting, sculpture or installation there is a history… that history is a story in itself.
It takes time to plan a painting…
- There are ideas that never see reality but develop into other ideas
- There are quick freehand sketches that develop into serious detailed finished paintings
- There are outdoor sketches that grow into studio paintings
And, it takes time to draw and paint…
Each line you draw takes time… It has a start and an end…
- Each color daub you paint… Every brushstroke you lay on the canvas has its origin in the paint tube
- The color finds its way onto the palette and is mixed with other colors
- Paint is worked on the canvas before the painting is finished
Every mark you make on paper, canvas, panel and fabric has its own story. Take pleasure in the story behind every painting you create.
There is research before painting…
- There are location visits to places of interest
- Circumstance, environment and chance grows inspiration
- Landscape, buildings, weather, people and their history influences art creation
- Stories you have heard could be the reason you want to paint and draw
All of this is part of your art…
Understand this vital element behind your art and be prepared to tell that story…
- Write the story down on paper and expand the value of your drawing and painting by giving the background story
- Include captions alongside your paintings at exhibitions that build the story
Your art pronounces its story…
They say every picture says a thousand words. Make sure that your painting’s story is heard…
Tell people about the challenges behind your art and let them understand the difficulties you have overcome. Let the story add to the value of your painting and drawing.
