menzerna FG400 and SF4000 on imola red M roadster

After 3-4 hours work:

-washed
- clay bared
- 1 coat of Menzerna FG400
- 1 coat of Menzerna SF4000
- 1 coat of Menzerna Power Lock Sealant

Turned out pretty good. I probably should have used an in-between polish after the FG400 (SIP1500 or 2000?) to get some of the finer scratches in the clear coat (some of them from caused by the FG400 possibly). But overall, not bad for a daily driver). I have a 2nd coat of the sealant on right now (letting it set up before removing). The 2nd coat should help with gloss and protection.

Spring detail done (at least the interior!)

more photos

Here's a few more pics...now with the 2nd coat of Menzerna Powerlock Sealant applied. (I also detailed the M3 last week with Menzerna as well - but only SIP1500 and the sealant - white is so much easier!!!)
