VD Detailed: e65 Jet Black

Used my new H.I.V. package, in which the LSP is Jetseal only. Some spot polishing was asked.

Car was in ok shape. Any corrections made were easy.

Notice how clean my sponge was. Virtually all the grime was gone before I got to bucket and sponge stage.

Detailed descriptions per image later. I am exhausted. I wish the sun was still out...my pics would have turned out better. Ah well

dude those wheels are a pain in the a$$ to clean. I am detailing my pop's navigator(never detailed and is 3 yrs old) and it has the same type. I am using the most aggressive clay bar too! Happy Fathers day present though.

Anyways back to topic. Were there any tough brake dust parts to remove off the wheels?

And good job on paint correction and especially taking on a Jet black 7 series... It usually takes me two days to do a car that huge! And you must be loving the CR spotless? because i am def. enjoying mine haha.

Damn nice. I think the next thing you need to invest in is a canopy thing so you don't have to spray in your garage.

Yeah! But nothing that FMINUS APC could take care off! That shizzle is stronger than grime reaper or p21s wheel gel I swear!

I LOVE my CR Spotless. Although my meter still reads 000...I have already done 3-4 washes. Wondering if the meter is accurate?

As for the paint correction, only 3 panels spot polished @ 1 pass if you were wondering why I was so quick.
