Detailing Technology : 1990 BMW M3 - orig paint.
 
I did this one a few weeks back. Been over booked with fun cars lately. F40, DBS, 997's galore, 993's o'plenty.


This was an attempt to save the car form a repaint. It was purchased with what was called a Griots Stage 3 (I was wrong when I said 5) detail. It's only 58,000 miles from new.

The paint is single stage, which is always rewarding to polish. I think the end result is worth holding off on the full repaint. This as a two day procedure.

Process:
Wash:
CG Citrus Wash
Clay

Polish: Makita Rotary
Meguiars M105 + wool
Meguiars M205 + Orange LC
Menzerna PO 85 to jewel

LSP:
Swissvax Concorso

Interior:
Leatherique
Silk Shine

The owner has new wheel well liners and 17" Fikse wheels on the way.

Those old school M3's are super valuable in like-new condition. Very hard to find.

Here it is going into storage last Sunday:

I actually corrected, or have scheduled to correct, every car in that shot.

I used to be a dedicated Menzerna SIP/106xx/85xx user.

I started to use this new non-diminishing 105 and 205 this season and i cant put it down. I dont really use the Kevin Brown method as documented, he and I have discussed the process a few times. End result is end result.
