Takumi587s Thxgiving Details: 2 M3s, 528i, C300-->Enjoy

The first vehicle is an E46 M3 convertible that is being prepped for winter storage:
Before Pics:




Rinsed the Wheels first w/ CR Spotless Water w/ Karcher Pressure Washer
Followed up by spraying P21S Wheel gel for 5 minutes.
Irritated areas with a brush where it was necessary
Also sprayed the Wheel Wells






After P21S Autowash and Poorboys Soap and Suds







Clay Bar w/ Meguiars and used CGs Detailers spray as a lube




Polished the vehicle with Menzerna PO85 w/ white pad
Then wiped off any polish that was left over w/ Menzerna Final Inspection








Sealed the car with Jet Seal 109 and let sit for 30 minutes (break time) then wiped off and then waited 20 more minutes. Then applied a second layer.



Jet Sealant was followed up with Swissvax Saphir



Tips were cleaned with Meguiars Stainless still polish



Then the car was covered and storage for the winter with a trickle charger.






Following morning was a brand new 2008 BMW 528i
The vehicle was made in March of 2008 so it needed some claying.

Befores:
















Poorboys Wheel wax on all wheels:




Next was a C300 6spd 09
This vehicle was extremely filthy and had serious grime and tar all over the wheels and fenders! It took about 3 hours just washing the exterior! It was its very first wash too. So this had major contaminants on the Artic White paint. There were small orange specs on the vehicle all over which made the Claying take about 3 hours too! With my friend giving me a hand too. However, the end results for this car was amazing.

Products used for wash:



This is what was sliding off:




After half and half b/c of sun on the other side:






After claying the car for a long long time... Applied jet seal:




Cleaned the exhaust with meguiars:



FInished shots with swissvax and poorboys wheeel wax








Also had a visitor w/ a scratch on rear bumper..and cleaned the tips of the muffs. No before but here is the car that came by:
