SpeedFreak detailed: Ben335's SG E90 M3

Had the pleasure of working on Ben's Space Grey E90 M3 this weekend. I absolutely love working on this color paint! Ben's gorgeous M3 received a full paint correction/protection and engine treatment as well. His car was in very good shape with some minor swirling and scratching from someone else washing it.

Products used:
  • Dawn super concentrated dish soap w/2 bucket method/grit guards
  • Sonax Full Effect wheel cleaner
  • Pinnacle XMT Speed Clay
  • Poorboy's World QD as clay lubricant
  • HD Uno on LC CCS White Pad w/FLEX 3401
  • Pinnacle Advanced finishing polish on LC CCS White pad w/FLEX 3401
  • Wolfgang Deep Gloss paint sealant 3.0
  • P21S 100% Carnauba wax
  • Optimum Metal polish
  • Poorboy's World wheel sealant
  • Stoner's Invisible Glass
  • Armor All tire gel
  • Meguiar's Professional APC diluted @ a 4:1 ratio
  • Aerospace 303 protectant

Wheels getting the standard Sonax Full Effect treatment







Clean!!



Soaking



Degreasing the gas cap area



Clay was relatively clean for the most part, thanks to good work by Ben



All glass surfaces get clay as well







The M3 getting taped up and ready for polish





Hood received testing of HD Uno & Pinnacle Advanced finishing polish



Rest of the car received Pinnacle Advanced finishing polish





Swirls? What swirls.......no swirls here!























Engine before









Meguiar's APC doing it's thing



Engine shots after cleaning and dressing





After the sun went down on my last time, I made sure to get LOTS of "afters" on this one.




































Thanks for looking!

Brian
