    Hello all,

    Not posted for a while so thought that I just better show that I am still alive and keeping busuy.

    The owner of this E46 M3 contacted me through DW as he wasn't 100% happy with the paint finish, after viewing the vehicle with client it was agreed that the best port of call would be to do a full paintwork correction detail. As the bodywork was suffering from some pretty bad swirl marks and lots of deep random scratches.

    On arrival















    After our usual wash procedure the lower parts and wheels were treated with AS tardis to remove a fair amount of tar from over the years. Then vehicle was then clayed with Megs mild clay, the paintwork was covered from what felt like a classic case of overspray (very rough). Once the paintwork was decontaminated the the vehicle was pulled inside and dried of with leaf blower and drying towels.

    Paint depth readings were then established and the paintwork was thoroughly inspected, silver is certainly my least favorite colour to work on. Having worked on a fair number of E46 M3's and knowing how stupidly hard this paint is, it didn't take me long to establish a pad and polish combo. The correction was carried out with a gloss-it grey wool pad and 3M cutting pad and Menz power gloss.

    Not the easiest clour to capture and it actually looked far worse in person.

    Few before and afters.

    Really sorry to hear that mate, some people have got no respect. Hopefully it can be rectified without needing to be painted.
