2011 M3 Correction

This was a pretty new car but unfortunately according to the owner, his mitt may have had something trapped in it because the whole car had deep random scratches. There were no swirls or cobwebs amazingly.

Due to the color, I didn't bother taking befores as it would have been hard anyway. Here is one though, the worst.

Before



After



The objective was to remove all imperfection (one 1/2" sratch remains on the hood which was the worst panel) but it is very hard to see under most type of lights and a durable wet looking finsh.

PROCESS:

QEW
3D MILD CLAY
3D QD
HD UNO - PFW/SURBUF COMPOUNDING PADS
HD UNO - ORANGE POLISHING PADS
HD UNO - BLACK/RED FINISHING PADS
DODO JUICE PRIME LITE - GREEN/BLUE FINISHING PAD
MAGIC WAX - WHITE POLISHING PAD
HD TIRE GEL
IG ON WINDOWS


Here is the car days later.

Very nice.

Can I get the details on the products/pads you're using? You're getting a gloss and depth I haven't been able to get yet. I can get a great shine but you pulled a wetness out of the paint that looks amazing.

Interesting choice of products. How do you like QEW compared to ONR also Dodo Prime lite as compared to CG EZ glaze?
