Sweet, wish I had seen this thread sooner. I don't understand the technicals behind the paint, but those pics of the reflection in-focus are what I seem to observe happening when someone's car is repaired at a body shop. The reflection is no longer sharp and in-focus like the OP has done with his efforts.

Incredible job!

I just realized I never replied to this thread, my apologies everyone! So many nice compliments, it means a lot.

Those after shots a simply stunning. Do you still have the E46 too?
I sold the E46 a while ago; still miss it.

I did everything at my house. And yes, I wasn't sure I wanted to spend so much time on a project like this.

I was interested in detailing since I was a kid and just did a lot of reading on the subject over the years. Lots of practice too!
