Todays Treatment:- Enhancement Detail & Ceramic Paint Protection


Here we have a BMW M3, this is in fact a detailing world members car. I spent the day detailing with Matt’s help on parts of the car such as wheels and interior while i did the polishing, wetsanding, enhancing and ceramic Sealing.

So, here is how we got on.

Here is the M3 upon its long drive up to Doncaster.

Image

As you can see, ready for a little polish although it was well waxed up until today by Matt him self. So, i started with a Citrus Pre-wash and PH Neutral Shampoo like so.

Image

Working particular areas of the car.

Image
Once rinsed the BMW was cleaned using the 2BM and Wookies Fist, giving this finish once rinsed again.
Image

Then, Tardis was applied and agitated with a Microfibre Towel before been rinsed again. And the Fabric good was cleaned with Autosmart Fabric Cleaner and Swissvax Brush.

Image

Once inside the roof was vac’d dry like so.

Image
Image

After drying with Ultra Plush Drying Towels we did an inspection on the whole car, including paint depth readings. My first thought was the bonnet which has previously been re-sprayed but Matt at the time thought it was ok. I had second thoughts so started to mask it up ready for a wet sand.

Here you can see what it looks like before:

After the first pass:

Happy with the result i started on the rest, here you can see how bad it really was
Image
Image

So, i finished the passes on the bonnet:

Image

Then worked my way around the rest of the body using a mix of Scholl & 3M.

Image

While i was doing the body, Matt took the wheels off and gave them a good cleaned, i did the arches while matt was outside.

Image
Also worked the exhaust tips with some Mothers & Meguiars chrome polish.
Image

After a mixed day including 3 hour power cuts, we managed to get the ceramic on to give a somewhat wet finish which anyone can appreciate is very hard for a silver car.
Here are the final shots, wheels, glass, paint & Plastics sealed with G3 Glasscoat, Tyres dressed with Megs and windows polished with Autoglym.

And here is the best shot of the day

Again thanks for reading and for Matt for Choosing CleanDetail!

Fantastic work! Did you wet sand the whole car or selected parts to emphasise certain areas.

This one was just the bonnet as it had previously been re-spray but not to the highest of standards as it was very flat and orange peely.
