Detailer's Domain: BMW M3 Paint Correction Detail

This was an exterior paint correction/engine detail. Great customer! What's there to say had some really bad swirls and needed to be clayed!

Its an e46 M3 in Carbon Black. I used SIP to knock out the swirls and polished it out with PO85RD. The Last Step was Swissvax Blau Weiss.

Products Used:
Exterior:
Adam's All Purpose Cleaner in the Cam Spray Foam Canon
Adam's Clay Bar and Optimum Instant Detail Spray and Gloss Enhancer for clay lube
Menzerna Super Intensive with the Uber Orange Pad
Menzerna PO85RD with the Uber Blue Pad
Menzerna Top Inspection
Swissvax Blau Weiss
Einszett Spray Wax

Wheels and Tires
Uber Wheel/Tire/Wheel Well Kit

Engine: (no photos)
P21S Total Autowash
Adam's VRT Diluted with Water in a Spray bottle

Tools:
Infratech 5300
Brinkmann MaxFire
Metabo PE12-175
Makita 9227 Hi Speed Rotary
The Uber Foam Pads (5.5inch)
Tons of "Uber" Microfiber Towels
Uber Drying Towels

Cam Spray 1500A with Cam Spray Foam Gun

How many times do you use SIP and PO85RD? More specifically, what's your technique when polishing? Your work looks great.



Thanks

not sure what you mean by how many times I used SIP and 85RD? I used it on each panel for the whole detail.

Thanks!

Do you apply it more than once? Do you go over each panel multiple times?
