2008 E92 335i

Car: 2008 BMW E92 335i

Service: Stage 2 Paint Correction

Comments:
- Swirls, scratches and major water marks on exterior. Some deeper scratches were reduced. There was also pitting on the clear coat (after being resprayed) - mainly on the bonnet.
- The black sapphire metallic paintwork was really looking flat and more grey than black. There was no evidence of metallic flake which was hidden by the watermarking and dirt build up.
- Paint was rough like sandpaper and desperately needed decontamination
- Gloss and reflection restored to paintwork and that deep black colour of BSM was revealed

- Unfortunately, it was raining so after shots are very minimal


Random shots:

50/50 on bootlid - the clear coat was flawed from a bad paint job, but notice the clarity on the right side compared to the haziness on the left:


After shot of the roof:


Testing for swirls with LEDs:

Wow as always I love your work

I have always despised jeeps for their poor quality, gas guzzling engines etc but damn the SRT's are a cool ride and the latest jeep range is keenly priced.

Car: 2009 BMW 135i

Service: Stage 1 Paint Correction, Interior Clean & Leather Condition

Comments:

- Not many before pictures, because it was one of the cleanest cars we've had
- Interior was almost spotless and presented 'as new' but still a thorough clean was carried out
- Some deeper scratches and marks were heavily reduced (see photos)
- The paintwork was cleaned and the single stage polish reduced many contaminants and swirls, leaving the paint looking super shiny.
- Duragloss sealants topped off the paintwork with a super smooth finish.

We just finished a Stage 1 detail on this car: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...5321643&type=3

But this is probably the most important part of the detail - deep scratch removal & reduction:



No photo editing trickery here. Just some hard and long hours spent correcting this boot lid through a 4 - 5 stage paint correction.
This is basically the last resort before a paint shop respray is necessary and is on strict request by the owner.

Tom, not sure to be honest, but someone 3rd party had damaged the owners bootlid. When I first saw the photos he sent me, I thought a paint shop repair was in order, but on arrival we gave it a go and got some pretty fantastic results
