I got contacted to detail and protect a brand new BMW M1 series in estoril blue. The costumer and I set up a date that happened to be this weekend.
Like mentioned the car was brand spanking new so when it arrived it looked great which was good for me as I didnt have much to do.
The car upon arival
The car was fairly clean for a 2 day old...the wheels had some brake dust acumulated and there was some bug splatter in front
Upon inspection I diddnt find any major damage, just some light swirls that will be removed with polishing. They were most visible on the back lights.
I went with the Mike Phillips aggresive wash technique.
So I started with the chemical decon procedure. I used a local iron remover product called Carshinefactory Iron off.
Snow foamed and washed usind OPT car wash
Foamed again and clayed the paint using a clay mitt.
I pulled the car into the garage to dry it and to polish it using OPT Hyper polish and LC orange pad on a DA. 1-2 passes were enough to remove light swirls. I polished the entire car in about 2h (very fast yes I know). I used OPT paint prep to remove polishing oils.
Gloss coat was applied to the majority of the car...
...The majority because I ran out of it and had to use Gyeon Cancoat for the back boot and bumper. One coat of Gloss coat and 3 coats of Cancoat on the back 1h apart and left it in the garage over night.
The next morning I applied Carpro Reload to help the coating cure for the next couple of weeks.
Fk1000p on the exhaust
Gtechiq C2 on the wheels
and TAC system tyre dressing on the tyres
The interior was vacuumed and the plastics wiped with OPT opti-clean. The door shuts were polished with OPT poli-seal. The engine bay was wiped with APC and plastics protected with Wolfs chemicals plasic & trim coat.
