Dented doors saga continues....

Well, just returned from two paint shops.
One is a small shop with a modern oven, and is the shop that undertakes jobs for Lexus, Toyota and Ford.

Has 3 employees, including the owner.

Another shop I went to is bigger, (although again it has only one oven). There are around 5 employees, but again only one is going the painting(the boss).

Price they gave me is similar, but the second one has PANICKED when I told him that I have used recently a polish that leaves a membrane on the paint.(KLASSE). He said to leave the car a couple of weeks for the silicone of the polish to wear out.

My question is:

Do the KLASSE products contain any silicone????????
The guy was really scared that the polish will make his life a misery, and the paint wont stick properly, and it will also affect other cars that need painting.

I mean, if this KLASSE product contains any silicone, why they didnt tell me when I bought it???????

Nightmare begins.

You could just take the Klasse off before they work on it if it makes them feel any better. I used 3M adhesive remover yesterday to get off the 330Ci on the back of my car, and trust me, there wasn't any Klasse left when I was done. It strips all the wax off. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Acrylic is the Solution. Acrylic is different than wax, silicones, and polymers. This polish will bond to your carís surface just like the previously mentioned treatments, but it will not cause any change to your paint, and you donít have to worry about drying time. Klasse All In One dries as fast as you apply it, and there is no risk of hazing or streaking. All-In-One contains no abrasives or silicones, and does not stain plastic, vinyl or rubber trim. It can be used on any non-porous surface, and in addition to car care it is also approved for marine and aviation use.

It does not say this for the Glaze though, but since it is a 100% acrylic product, I dont think there will be a problem.

Tomorrow I will visit the main dealer. They have an in house repair service, which mainly consists of foreign workforce, and I must say, I feel more comfort in taking it up to them.

For starts, they will put on their service records that the car has been re-painted due to a small dent, not an accident.

Second, they have all the original paint, which is, very important.
