Start off with the paint correction, no befores of this one sorry.


Repainted


Hacked up by another "Detailer"








Some touch-up needed:


1st layer, forgot pictures of the 2nd coat, see afters


Taillights corrected







Finished:




















50/50 of some amazingly dirty leather








And A LSB M3 I already did a full write-up on:










Thanks for reading!

Thanks! For the leather I used Woolite mixed 15:1 with a foaming sprayer, worked in small sections with a semi-stiff brush. I'm alternating between that and Leatherique Pristine Clean now.

Thanks! Here's the full write-up with a lot more pictures: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=535577

For exhaust tips I hit them with Meguiar's Wheel brightener and a brush during the wash to get the loose stuff off, then later with Optimum Metal Polish and 0000 steel wool. Most metal polishes will have the same effect.

Great work! Question. When you posted "HD" in the title, were you referring to HD detailing products?
