Had the pleasure of detailing over 2 days this gorgeous low mileage E46 M3 04' plate, supplied by the main dealer but unfortunately A-Glazed over the poorly prepped paintwork and explained to my customer this is how used paint should look.
My glamorous assistant for the morning.
First job up was the soft top, vacuumed and cleaned with AG stain remover.
Arches,tyres & alloys cleaned with various brushes using AS smart wheels,
Shuts,engine bay,badges and panel gaps cleaned with G101 and SV brush,
Vehicle then sprayed via the foam lance with co-polymer remover and left to dwell for a short while,
Rinsed and a further application of DG 901 applied and washed using the TBM & Zym@l sponges,
Rinsed & Dried with DG plush towels,de-tarred followed by claying with Z18,
Paint defects before and after & readings.
Machine polished using IP3.02 & 106FF both on a orange waffle pad from RB,
Some light scratches that I wet flattened using Mirka hand pads 2000 followed by 4000 to try and reduce,
With all the machining completed the paintwork was given a IPA wipedown to remove any greasy residue followed by an application of Zaino AIO via the PC,
Soft top treated with G-techniq fabric protectant and plastic trim sealed using G-TQ C4,
1st layer of Zaino Z2 pro applied and left to cure,
Arches dressed by hand using a foam applicator and All seasons,
Tyres dressed with 3 coats of Z16 dressing,
Alloys sealed with Opti-seal,
19.30 and car put away in the garage for the day.
Another lovely warm morning and started with dropping the hood and giving the interior a courtesy vac and wipedown whilst hoovering out some of the dust from the shuts,
Glass cleaned throughout with VP citrus bling,
Rubber seals treat with Gummi pledge,
3 more layers of Z2 pro applied and removed after curing,
Finally a wipedown with Z8 and the exhausts polished with DG metal and the vehicle was looking how it should.
Really enjoyed this detail so please excuse the amount of photo's taken.
Thanks for looking & comments welcome
