DAMN, those final shots look good! That is IMO the best color for the 1er.

So did you apply the FMJ by machine? The pattern in the hazed part looks so uniform, it looks like it might have been done by machine. Just wondering.

Very nice work!

I was thinking the same. I figure the owner was like, "I'm going to enjoy the hell out of this thing and not worry about keeping it clean because my detailer will be working on it tomorrow."
