Best wishes to you all.
The owner of this BMW came to us several times but we couldn't work on his car due to my time constraints. This is the last detail we did in 2013 and actually, we completed this ride at 6 pm on the 31st December.
The work on this car totals 23 hours.
The clay definitely didn't remain white for sure as it underwent claying for the very 1st time.
The ride had all the defects you could imagine, loads of deep swirls, orance peel, many RIDS and looked blurred.
Some of the tools used
Starting with the black roof
Heavily swirled, lots of scuffs and scratches, water spots, overspray and uneven paint
Under fluorescent light, other defects can be found. In fact, the color was no longer original black but a "light black".
Almost done, only needs some jeweling to give it a BeyondShine certified shine
Look well! can you see the camera?
defects gone :)
the boot lid
Can you see the haziness on the boot lid?
Combination of orange peel and polish caked
The tail lights area, left side
The bumper had auite some of this type of nasty scratches
Looking at me
The rear spoiler
Finish: Reflections or illusions?
or illusive reflections?
The driver's side
same defects, blurred, lacking definition plus lots of scratches, paint job wrongly done
Correction in the mildest fashion
stitches on paint from 2 angles, another version of the caveman's paint job :(
Runs and drips spot corrected
hello! stop staring
It was already evening.....
The hood and front section
Look closely at the light area to see the extent of defects
Water spots are on the show too
Compounding to create the level finish and depth
This would be more than acceptable to most car owners
This one would be way better still, but we wanted to raise the level of shine
This is the sun shining, "no swirls attached"
Transformed.... only corrected and refined... no wax or coating yet
Shine with a Smile..... the BeyondShine way :)
The passenger's side
No definition, no clarity
Owner staring. Look out how blurred this is!
Sunshine on the rear wing
The side mirrors
The finishing pics
Adding depth to the look
