Monaco Blue 335i Coupe, nicely maintained with minimal swirls but it did have some nasty tree sap. I had to use a plastic razor blade to remove the tree sap. Nothing took it off!

Wash - Chemical Guys Citrus Wash and Gloss at full strength
P21S Total Auto Wash on front bumper, rocker panels and quarter panel and bumper
Clay
M105 on trouble areas - sap etching, birb bombs and several scratches
Menzerna 106 on white
PO85D on blue
Optimum Poli-Seal on blue


Opti-Seal x2
Collinite 476 x2

Klasse AIO on the wheel
Meguiar's Hot Shine Tire Gel

Windows and trim were polished with Optimum Poli-Seal

Before's - Dirty and Dull

zaxjax,

Nice bud. If you lived in Cali, you would be doing my black 04 COBRA. Nice car with a lot of smooth body lines. Also, great color to work with. Nice to work with paint (that is of pretty high quality). Unlike my 04 COBRA that has ridiculous amounts of orange peel in different & random areas. Enough venting though, I'm sure customer was happy. That is a sick sleeper that car... !

:beer:

Anyone local to the Maryland area who wants their car to look like it came off the showroom floor, this guy is your man. Def one of the best detailers in the area and awesome guy. Great job as always Jason.

Car looks wonderful! Even the bird bomb damage was gone.

One question. Did you tape it up before? Can you post a pic of how much taping you do. It seems that whenever I do any paint correction I spend just about as much time taping as I do with the rotary.

Very nice Jason!

Tell the owner to slap some M6 wheels on it. :rockon:

Sleeper plans are in the works

Real nice, do bmw's have hard clears on them?

Yes! Yes! Yes!

I do tape but I don't take pics of the tape job. It is a royal pain.


Thanks! The bird bombs and sap went bye-bye

You need a better camera to showcase what the car really looks like. I'm sure it looks way better than those pictures show.

looks like the 105 did a real good job on the sap etchings...can you still tell they were there on close up inspection or did it get rid of it all?
