2008 M6 Black Sapphire Metallic

Had the pleasure of transforming this 2008 M6 Cab over the weekend. As much as it hurts to see a care as beautiful as this in such bad condition, it makes the results that much more dramatic. Crazy part is that it only has 7800 miles on the clock but it's stored outside and gets pretty beet up in the elements. The sun just barely peaked out at the end of the after pics. Total of 15 hours were spent reviving this one. Enjoy the pics!

I had to cut the post short before I had a chance to list some of the products but here is the short list:

-CG Citrus Wash 1:1 dilution
-CG APC was used to degrease
-P21s wheel gel
-CG Lube & Clay

The paint was pretty trashed so I went 3-step

1-Menzerna IP w/ Hexlogic Orange (I wasn't crazy about that combo but it was effective)
2-Menzerna 203 w/ LC Crimson
3-Menzerna 106 w/ LC Black

Finished W/
-Swissvax BW.
-Poor Boys Wheel Sealant

The list goes on but those were the main ingredients.
