MONSTA's E92 M3 correction detail

I recently got my M3 detailed by Dave of STREET DREAMS DETAILING & I must say I'm truly amazed at how well it came out that I'm showing off his work here...if you NJ guys are going to get your car detailed he is the guy to go to, PM me if you want his contact info. I'm a very satisfied customer!

Here are some pics of my Interlagos Blue M3, 15k on it.

ENJOY!

Below I edited so others can contact him directly regarding any pricing ect ect.

Wheel cleaned using P&S brakebuster with various brushes, tires+wells cleaned with ARO



Washed with FK1 concentrated wash out of their decon kit, which is just "okay", but the wash shampoo is actually very good.

Clayed with poly clay using ONR lubeness

The entire hood, front bumper and rear bumper had 3M clear film. It needed some extensive work to clean it up and restore some clarity, yes you can restore clarity to film

Some of the issues, stains, streaks and RIDS and hazing





Used the flex DA with M105, followed up with 106FA again on the DA and came back to finish it out with 85rd on the metabo, using the rotary after a DA may seem counterproductive but it works and thats all there is.

50/50 after first pass using 105





The FA helped clean up some of the haze M105 left behind, although it did actually finish down well on the DA



After the M105 and 106FA, video using the fenix LED 50/50



Film before..



After..



The front fenders had film as well and were treated to the same process as above.

The finish wasnt in terrible shape but the clear was very hard, started out with heavy polishing foam and P203s and ended up using the new LC cyan cutting pad with M105 for several passes.

Followed with 203s to refine the finish via rotary and then jeweled it out using Megs 205 on the DA... I think a DA is where M205 shines

testing out the new LC orange foam, leaves a great finish and cuts well but this clear needed a more agressive foam, the new blue LC pad worked far better on this car



After first pass using M105, about 90%





Finished down after the IPA





B pillar before..





After

Before correction haze under the infratech



After correction



Took a lot of combos to get what worked best for this car.... I ended up using all of these at some point during the detail



The side mirrors were tough to correct so I used a polishing pad with a 203s and came back with a finishing pad with 106FA... I kept the rpms around 1000 or less

before



during



after, with the grooves in the black plastic plastic and it being right near clear film I didnt chase the last few RIDS with a cutting pad (cutting foam = more heat)







working the 105



after finishing under the phene-ix

The trunk has some more severe defects which needed wetsanding







Sanded with 2000 unigrit followed by 3000 unigrit



After the 2000



I corrected the sand scratches with a 3" tufbuf wool pad, followed by M105 again on the DA with cutting foam (2x for the whole trunk)







Under LED



There are still some shadows from the scrathes left over, they were cut deep unfortunately.

After correcting the rest of the trunk I went back over it with the DA and 205



After the wipedown

finishing out the carbon roof



after



Interior was kept very well, the leather needed the most attention if anything.

After...







Some finishing touches. Wheels sealed with Jetseal for protection. Tires dressed with SV Pneu, front lower and rear lower grills dressed with "the sauce" etc.

Hood vents dressed



touching up on the wheels



I applied blackfire wet diamond sealant for LSP. First coat was machined on with the DA using a gold lc pad at speed 4 which I let cure for 40mins or so, it buffed off super easy.

BF hazed and being buffed off... how can this part not be the most enjoyable part of a detail?



The car was supposed to go back yesterday but religion and rain had other plans, lol. So I took it outside this afternoon in hopes of some sun but there was none.

Pulled it back inside to apply another coat of the BF WD and do the final wipedown.

All finished, snapped some pics tonite before it left















Thanks for looking

disclaimer: I'm just a happy customer showing off my car, Dave by no means told me to post this up even though he did the write up, actually as of now he doesn't even know I posted it...will inform him now...

mods: please leave this here since its in the NJ area

He's located in Bergen County & does it out of his home garage for the time being, you could see it in the pictures...it is spot less...regarding price every car is different & requires different hours of work to do the job...I'll PM you his info & if you wish to contact him you may.

as you can see in the pictures (more noticeable IRL) I had a lot of spiderwebbing, hazing, bug guts ect ect so since I didn't need my car for the weekend I gave him the car for the weekend so he could take his time w/ it...but I believe he generally needs the car for 2 days, but again each car is its unique issues so best to contact him directly.

Oops I meant to type IB...nice! I went to a couple of L4P meets at Riverside Mall before he changed it to LiLo's. After that, school and work keeps me from any fun stuff anymore. The only enjoyment I have is driving to and from school or work in my car.

Wow, nice job......nice car It looks better in action

Why is it that NY and NJ get all the good detailers and us in the southeastern PA area get sh*t
