Detailer's Domain, RR Supercharged, X3, F350 - WOW what a week

Ok here it is, 2 SUV's and 1 Massive Truck.

Its been a long week.

Let's start with the F350 - This was a new car prep, I have to say after seeing all these exotics with extremely horrible new car preps I would take this Ford all day long.
This F350 had zero imperfections! Wash, Clay, Polish, Wolf's Nano Sealant, was all it needed on the exterior. For the interior your basic vac, glass, and leather clean/condition.

What was done -
Exterior

- Wheels were prepped with Sonax Wheel Cleaner and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with Optimum Power Clean and washed down
- Wheel wells were cleaned up
- Pre Washed with W99
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Tires dressed
- Masking
- 1 Step Menzerna Super Finish
- Inspection with Fenix,Infratech, and natural sunlight
- Last Step Wolf's Body Wrap
- Wheel wells were cleaned and dressed
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned
- Windows were clayed, cleaned, and sealed

Now on to the BMW X3 - this was a friend's sister's X, it hasn't been touched in a few years. The X had 90k plus on it and it came out great however the wheels were so bad they needed to be refinished. Nothing we could do would removed the etched in brake dust.
