    2017 black BMW M4 Self Healed

    This gentleman was a referral. He was very excited to get his car done and is an extreme perfectionist. The front had been wrapped as had halfway up the doors. What paint was left was polished with M205 and a Carpro Gloss pad + 3401. The parts that could not get Heal Lite were treated to Ceramic Lite whereas the paint all got Self Heal Lite.

    He was having the wheels redone, so I was just cleaning them for now. Coating them will be done subsequently.

    Here it is as it arrived:











    The wheels were done first using a Daytona brush, 3D Pink Soap and a demoted wash mitt for the barrels and faces. The tires were cleaned with Zep 505. The wells were cleaned with LATA.

    The car was foamed and washed using 3D Pink again.

    The paint, as mentioned above, was polished with M205.

    This was one of two areas that needed compounding correction:





    This was the other area:





    The paint was coated with Self Heal Lite and I then topped it with Top Coat for maximum protection. The glass, PPF, head and tail lights were all coated with Ceramic Lite. The wheels were not touched for now. Here it is both inside shots from that night and outside from about a week later. I did this vehicle several weeks ago now.





















    This car also has the VERY cool hologram projection:





















































    Thanks for looking!

    I'll be honest, Richy...I think it looked nice as it "arrived". Sick work on a sick car!

    What's he doing to those wheels? I like them.

    Paul, you're right, it looked very nice indeed. He knows how to take care of it. I did fix those few places for him though. The wheels are getting re-finished and then I'll be coating them a month later.
