    BMW Mike is at it again....

    Some of you may remember the work I performed on my bosses new Explorer.

    13 Explorer Tri coat white Metallic OC2.0

    Anyways this is another new vehicle him and his wife has and they wanted this one coated as they were astonshed from the work on the Explorer.

    This 2011 328i is Deep Sea Blue Metallic and has just under 30k miles on it. The paint wasnt in too bad of shape as it sometimes has had a coat of wax on it and taken care of by him or his wife.

    This was roughly 13-14 hours over two days to get it done.

    Exterior
    Wash with 2BM and Meguiar's Super Soap
    Foam with Gilmour foam gun and Meguiars Super Soap and APC
    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/orange hybrid cutting pad
    Polished with 3401/WGFG/white hybrid polishing pad
    Eraser Wipe down
    OC2.0 application
    Door sills with V07
    Wheels dressed with V07
    Tires dressed with Meguiars Endurance tire shine











    Water spotting from previous quick wash






    Really love this stuff...




    Paint wasnt to dirty






    After one pass with FG400/orange/3401




    After correction and ready for Eraser wipedown


    And now for the afters....


























    Another happy customer leaving the shop...
