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

Re: White 5 series

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

Re: Alpine White 07 5 series



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

Any engine detail?



(BTW, USPS should be delivering soon!)

Re: Alpine White 07 5 series

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!
