    Alpine White 07 5 series

    This is a car that I did for a friend after it being driven here to Vegas from Ft Walton Beach Florida. This car was wrapped up with blue painters tape over the entire face of the car to help minimize rock chips. There was plenty of tape reside to remove from it but Car Pro TarX took care of it.

    Exterior
    Wash with 2BM and Sonax car wash
    Foam with Gilmour foam gun and Snow foam
    Wheel wells cleaned with APC
    Tires scrubbed with Purple degreaser
    Wheels cleaned with Wolfgang Uber Wheel Cleaner
    Front of car deconed with TarX
    Clayed with Last Touch and Meguiars medium clay
    AIO with Meguiars D151 and 5in white hybrid pad
    Wipe down with V7
    Tires dressed with Meguiars Endurance tire shine
    Glass cleaned with Meguiars D120 glass cleaner

    Great results, the white looks like it's still wet from being painted!!
    Cool foam shots too.

    Was it transported by open carrier the reason for the painters tape or actually driven?

    Any engine detail?



    (BTW, USPS should be delivering soon!)

    They were both driven by husband and wife as a permanent move from FL to NV.

    No engine or interior work

    I just received the package. Thanks for the box Steve!
