Mobile Image : E92 M3 - Part II
As I mentioned in Part I, I will be spending a few weeks working on this clients car. This past weekend saw me finishing the correction work and giving the car a final wash, before sealing the painted surfaces.


I didn't take many pics as I was pushed for time, but there are a few...


A couple quick shots of the passenger side (no after from the same position, sorry)

I remembered to grab a quick shot or 2 of the rear silencer box after it was cleaned the weekend before...

These are the results after simply spraying the acid based cleaner onto the metal, allowing it to sit for a few minutes and then pressure washing off. As I have mentioned in other threads, I will put together a more detailed write up when I next tackle a serously neglected exhaust system!


3 Quick shots inside after the main correction stage. The paint was further refined after this with Menz's PO85RE5

With the correction work completed I pulled the car outside to check the paintwork in the remaining sunlight, before giving her a wash down.

Carbon roof came out really well...

After a final wash the car was dried before applying a layer of Menzerna's Powerlock synthetic sealant. The more I use this stuff, the more I like it. Easy on, easy off, no hassles and it leaves a super slick finish! Plastic and rubber trim will be treated at a later date when the new Super VRT arrives. Seeing as I will be doing routine maintenance in this car monthly, I will be keeping tabs on both the Powerlock and SVRT's durability Clap

Final one...

Next weekend I will return once again to detail the interior and engine bay, with the clients new wheels and arches to be treated in the final stage later on.

As always, thanks for looking Thumb

Excellent reflections on the white paint there Dave.

The benefit of a monthly maintenance routine job like this is that you know that your initial hard work isn't going down the tubes as soon as the customer drives away in his newly detailed car.

Wow !!! Amazing work on the M3 Carn Thumbsup2

The white looks so smooth (1st reaction looking at these pics was ... Can I lick it ? Bluebiggrin Hammerhead ... Better than showroom condition ... Clap

This past week I tried various Metal polishes on my blacked exhaust tips ...
... Meguiar's NXT All Metal Polysh ... Autosol ... Nevr-Dull ... Shield APC ... Handy Andy ... with various MF cloths, Fine Steel Wool and even that Green Scour Pads ...
... with not as great results ...

Sooo ... ..."... acid based cleaner onto the metal ..."... if you selling I'm buying Bluebiggrin
