Hey all- been very busy with my final year of school and have not been able to work much out of my garage in my second location in Virginia. Up here is a 2008 M5 with 80K on the clock and was recently purchased by my client from the original owner who is located in Long Island. This M has the following list of mods: - Twin Dinan intake - Full Meisterschaft exhaust - Carbon fiber hood - Custom leather interior The interior required only moderate attention to the hard plastic areas and the leather which was heavily soiled and neglected. A full interior treatment including hot water extraction of the carpets and mats was performed. Exterior- the condition of the exterior was pretty neglected- lots of oxidation and heavy, noticeable swirling and other defects under natural light. The client and I chose to simply shoot for a 65%-75% correction level and I felt that a single step correction would do the trick- after performing some test areas I felt the Interlagos Blue was of medium hardness. A full decon wash was performed, CG Maxi Suds 2/ citrus clean mix used in conjunction with a drop of Dawn to strip any previous LSP- the entire car was foamed down with APC beforehand- Sonax FE on the wheels, various SV and other brushes were used, lambswool mitts also The M was pulled into my garage, dried and then clayed with a medium clay/ ONR. After being taped up I then used my LED to inspect the condition of the paint- heavy defects and swirling around the entire body Swirling, other defects and rain/ water spotting on the black trim clearly evident- pillars were in need of a lot of attention. Correction- Correction was performed via Flex DA and PC DA- yellow foam / Menz. SIP- LSP was 2 coats of Menzerna PL Afters: Hood- Gloss becoming restored- heavy water spotting and swirling was tackled by the SIP/ yellow foam combo 50/50 on the rocker Pillars and window trim coming along nicely.... Headlights- sanded out with 2000 grit Exterior Glass- polished by hand with Zaino Clear view glass polish Tires dressed with OPT water based dressing Afters- SLR is not with me- apologies for lack of quality/ HD Some Iphone pics- NO filter. NO editing Thanks for looking! - Dan K.
