First and foremost, apologies for having "laid low" recently. Work has been busier than ever (a good thing) which leaves me cramped for time. But to redeem myself, I detailed a BMW today. This Jerez Black M3 was purchased recently, but unfortunately the paint had not exactly been treated with care during the short 15K miles this vehicle has been on the road. I put a plan together, and together with my friend Flex, Menzerna, Uber and Swissvax, we bought it back from the dead. Owner had dropped the car off the day previous, and this is how I was greeted early this morning. I had my camera on the wrong setting, so all pictures I took inside look a bit strange. But hopefully this shows how dirty and dull the paint was. Very dull paint. Ready for her wash. Tackling the wheels first. All you need right here. Plenty of dirt in there. Washed the M3 with Chemical Guys Citrus Wash 'n Gloss. Under the lights (and after stripping everything that was on the paint), you could really see the damage. It had been a while since I've had to deal with RIDS like this. Most of the car was done using yellow and green Uber pads. Look at all the dirt I was pulling from the paint. After a few hours, all polishing was done. All done. LSP was Swissvax Insignix v1.
