Exclusive Car Care - SB BMW M3 CSL

Post by JayOne » Sat Jan 14, 2012 1:33 am

Had this in for a few days to give it some much needed TLC

I do apologize for some pics missing of some stages but here are a few :thumb:

Engine bay was in need of a good clean
Image

Megs Super Degreaser was sprayed on and worked in with various brushes and wiped dry before applying 303 Aerospace protectant
Image

Image

Side vents, front grill and few other bits removed to make the machine polishing stages a bit easier. These were thoroughly cleaned then protected with 303 Aerospace and fitted back on after the detail was complete
Image

All cleaned and dressed
Image

Wheels were removed and given a good clean and clay before applying some Blackfire All Metal Sealant to them
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Whilst wheels were off arches were also thoroughly cleaned and protected and BH Dynax S50 was applied (pics of these stages missing as forgot to take them)
Image

Wheels nuts were looking a bit sorry so these were rubbed down and re-painted gloss black
Image

Image

Vehicle foamed with AG Powermax 3 and worked into all gaps and badges then washed with Megs Hyperwash and a lambs wool wash mitt and then clayed
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Paint readings were taken then I set out finding a polishing combo to remove the defects from the hard paint and settled on using a 3M Cutting pad and Menz 302 with some panels requiring 3m FCP.

Carbonfiber roof had several areas that were badly etched from bird droppings

For some reason I forgot to take a pic of the roof after correction but this will do
Image

Once all heavy compounding was complete paint was refined with Menz 203s on a polishing pad then this was followed up with 3M Ultrafina and a 3M finishing pad

Swissvax Cleaner Fluid was applied/removed by hand and then a coat od Swissvax Divine was applied and left to cure whilst I carried on with some of the smaller jobs such as polishing the exhausts, cleaning windows, dressing tires and cleaning the alcantara seats.

And the end result after a wipedown with Swissvax Quick Finish

Thanks newbos, Cant remember exactly how many hours as this was done last year and have done several other black CSL's since then - but looking back at the photo's and seeing the amount of work that was carried out I would say it would have been somewhere between 20-30 hours of work put into it..
