LOW2000 Detail - E46 330Ci

Yesterday, my best friend brought over his 330Ci for a full detail. The car is an 01 with 75,000 miles, and had its fair share of etchings in the paint from bird droppings, swirls and scratches from poor cleaning technique, some damage from an unknown impact on the bumper along with the usual interior issues of dust/dirt and leather in dire need of conditioning.

Unfortunately, I didn't think to start taking photos during the whole process, so there aren't a lot of before photos, but I did the following:

Wash
Gilmour w/ Meguiars Gold Class
Castrol Super Clean on engine
P21S Gel on wheels

Dressing
303 Aerospace
Black Magic tire dressing (he brought it and wanted to use it)

Interior incl trunk
303 on all plastic
Zaino Z-9 and Z-10 on all leather

Paint
PC 7424
Menzerna Power Gloss on Orange LC 6.5 (Needed for the entire hood, 2 spots I had to hit twice, plus a scratch on the passenger door, and the rear bumper damage)
Tropicare TC-8 on White LC 6.5
Tropicare TC-3 on Blue LC 6.5

Stoners for glass and mirrors

Mothers Power Metal on the exhaust tips

Thanks, but I started at 6am and finished at 10pm. I wish he would have been able to stay till today so that I could get some good daylight shots, but he had to hit the road. It was a great turnaround however and I was very happy I was able to get out the imperfections in his paint.
