Thumbs up Mikes Detail Shop preps white 3 series for OC2.0

I have done the minor maintenance items on this car such as fluid changes, brake changes, etc and my good friend Mike always wanted to have me detail his car but we could never get the time necessary to get it done until just this last Sunday. We decided that it would be best for an Opti Coat application as he is very busy and dosent have the time to go out and detail his car like I do. He works night shift so when he got off work he come over for me to take care of and went inside to rest.

The car was in pretty good shape and I didnt have any issues with it. I one stepped this car with my 3401 and FG400 on a blue light cutting hybrid pad and with 6-8 passes I was finishing LSP ready. Towards the end 530inv (Jace) came over as I was doing the Opti Coat application and I showed him the process. All my after pictures are from his camera on a DSLR compared to my basic point and shoot. A good camera will be my next purchase as a point and shoot dosent do a very good job at catching your work.

Exterior
Wash with 2BM and Meguiar's Super Soap
Foam with Gilmour foam gun and Meguiars Super Soap and Dawn
Tires scrubbed with Purple degreaser
Wheels cleaned with WG Uber Wheel Cleaner
Decon with Iron-X
Clayed with Last Touch and Meguiars medium clay
Correction with 3401/FG400/blue hybrid pad
Eraser Wipe down
OC2.0 application
Door sills with V07
Wheels dressed with V07
Tires dressed with Meguiars Endurance tire shine













Seems appropriate a German wheel cleaner for an authentic set of BBS LM's...

And now for the afters provided by 530inv (Jace)





















Checking the leveling of OC2.0



Critiques/comments welcome. Thanks for viewing. -Mike

Thanks Andrew
I really love the look of this car as well.

Believe it or not there was no polishing done. I was going 6-8 passes with FG400 and on the last two passes I was going super slow with just the weight of the machine. Menzerna is nice to work with isnt it?

Re: Mikes Detail Shop preps white 3 series for OC2.0

Outstanding work....thanks for sharing the pics. I suspect the owner awakened with quite a smile.

Ok...I'll be the grump of the bunch. I can't stand the body kit. The gaps between those panels are inexcusable.
