Detailed my E46....

This weekend I did some detailing on my E46. I've tried to do the car on a couple of different occasions but work always seemed to interrupt it once I'd get it started and would have to call it quits. Anyhow even though it seemed like it was going to be a quite weekend it turned out to be quite the opposite but in between everything I managed to get it done Not many before/afters though since I kept having to come back to it... Let me know what you think...

Looks fantastic Zach. I wouldn't expect anything less from you though.

Just wipe the HD tire gel off before you go on track with that beast!

I gotta say; the car looks awesome. I particularly like the stretcher. Just incase you have the big one after all that hard work? *grin*

Happy motoring!

Cabinates full of all sorts of goodies lol I couldn't get the UNO to cut like the 105 on the DA so I just finished up with it.

Thanks The buildings are the one funeral homes. Actual time spent on the car was proly around 9-10 hours over 2 days. I wanted to do it in one day but other work didn't allow me to. I ended up working Saturday from 6am-3am Sunday morning, a lot of Monster was consumed in that time period lol Then just finished it up on Sunday in between calls.

Car looks awesome!

105 is amazing...I just used it a few months ago to restore an RDX to perfect condition after YEARS of awful abuse.
