Exclusive Car Care - Jerez Black BMW M3

Post by JayOne » Fri Sep 21, 2012 9:04 am

Hi Guys

Thanks for taking the time to view another thread from Exclusive Car Care. This time we have a BMW M3 (E92) in Jerez Black

Owner of this M3 made the journey up from Southampton and left me with the car for a few days so I could rectify the damage the dealership/body shop had made. As a new purchase to him one of his conditions was that the bonnet would be re-sprayed which resulted in the rest of the car being "butchered" by someone who does not know how to machine polish correctly. Even the freshly painted bonnet was left with excessive DA sanding marks.

Here is a few photo's of the paintwork after it was completely stripped of any glazes/fillers or protection.

Polish in vents!!!

The exhaust box is easily visible from behind as the rear end sits quite high so I spent a few minutes tidying this up to make it look a bit more presentable.

As you can clearly see the paintwork was a mess, below are a few photos during the paint correction process

Here is a 50/50 shot

Once all the machine polishing stages were complete paint was prepped with Wolfs Shine & Seal and then a coat of Wolfs Hard Body applied followed by a second coat the following day.

The end result with the sun showing the true, defect-free condition of the Jerez Black paintwork!!

The paintwork condition before the detail was truly shockingly bad!!

Very impressive correction work.

I'd be interested to know how much clear coat needed to be removed to get to that finish?

Can I ask what products you used and how many stages or correction was required.

Do you have PTG readings for before/after?

Paint readings are always taken when doing any kind of machine polishing, on average only 3-5 microns were removed with panels averaging 140 - 150 microns apart from bonnet and passenger front wing which were resprayed so paint readings were 200+ microns

Some of the defects found on the car were to deep to safely remove and/or in area's that couldnt be machined heavy so had to stay behind (some scratches still clearly visible in some "after" shots). Whilst there was some random scratches that probably could have been wet sanded out it wasnt worth compromising the level of paint in my opinion for that little bit of gain in correction as it may have resulted in that too much paint was removed to allow future polishing if it was ever needed.

Paint preservation is always top priority for me and should be for all detailers out there!

How much did that set the owner back?

I wouldnt mind a full paint correction done on Bloo at some point, her paintwork is in bad shape since coming back from repair.
Gone: 09' 120d MSport, catched at 198bhp, Miltek, K&N, CSL Reps, BMWP parts, coding, & more.
Now: 05' E46 318ci Cabrio, dark Bloo, many options, and mods will come in time.
