Good example of why you always need to blow dry the mirrors.....so you can prevent this from happening












[IMG][/IMG]



Thought I show the ample cargo space in the front.


After washing, proceeded to clay entire car including windows, wheels, etc..





Car is clean and prepped for 50/50 shot of the hood. Taped over the edge of the clear bra to prevent fraying the edges while polishing.


50/50 of the hood


Notice the deeper red on the right vs the the unpolished left.


50/50 Rear Lid



50/50 Rear Quarter Panel


Exhaust Before


Exhaust After




Engine cleaned and dressed




Applied DoDo Juice Supernatural and pulled car out in the sun to wipedown to make sure I don't miss any spots




After














Love that carnauba glow




Remember the wheels before?



Here they are after clay and wax





Yes that is 220 MPH




Ready for Take Off!


Got to have an Engine Pic

I love this car, and the before/after of the red is incredible! I never thought of red for this car until now, but I love it.

M3Mike - you're a lucky man to have that and an M3 in the stable!!

Thanks for all the compliments guys. It was a pleasure detailing this car. Too bad I was pressed for time or else i would have asked for a ride.
