    Today I had booked in for a good protection detail/interior and engine bay detail a lovely super rare BMW ALPINA B3S TOURING in Estoril Blue the only 1 in the world in this colour and only 23 B3S TOURINGS on the registers which have the 3.4 engine.

    The car on arrival was looking rather grubbing :thumb:

    Started with the usual wheel methods bilberry and a selection of brushes, the arches and tyres with HD Surfex, the car was then sprayed with HD SUrfex to the lowers to help break down the dirt and grime and then rinsed.

    The car was then foamed and left to dwell for 5 mins and the engine bay was give a soak in HD also and then rinsed after a little agitation with some swissvax style brushes.

    Next up a 2bm wash using some hyper wash, the car was then taken inside and clayed using BH auto clay and LT as lube and then dried.

    Next up the paintwork was cleansed using Zymol Hd cleanse applied via sonus applicator to a small area at a time then buffed using the zymol terry towel.

    Next up was the 1st layer of zymol vintage applied again by sonus applicator and then buffed, this was follow by a field glaze wipedown.

    I then got on with the interior fully hoovered, then the leather cleaned/condition using einzsett leather care, all the dash and trims had a wipedown with 303, all the glass cleaned using AG fast glass and then 2x coats of rainx applied 20mins apart and then buffed with a spritz of water.

    The tyres were dressed with CG new look trim gel, the wheels were sleaed with zaino cs and the arches dressed with 303, engine bay was then given a wipedown with 303, after 4 hrs I then applied the 2nd coats of vintage and buffed 2 panels at a time, final thing was the exhaust with wire wool and the britemax twins.

    Job completed in 9.5 hrs
