Detail Addict: 2013 Lemans Blue M3 Competition Package (Silver Addict Package+)

2013 BMW M3 - Lemans Blue with Competition Package!

Detail Addict Silver Addict Package + 3-step Hood/Roof Polish

Customer came in with problems from a previous detailer. He had water spots on the hood and roof that the previous detailer tried to remove. The result caused more damage than it corrected. The hood had medium swirls and scratches. You can see in the pictures that there are a lot of hologramming. Most of the water marks were gone but the harder ones were still there. This was up to our polishes to make it look better!

Product Used:

- Detail Addict Car Soap
- Detail Addict Carnauba Wax
- Detail Addict G-3500 Polish
- Detail Addict G-2500 Polish
- Detail Addict G-1500 Polish
- Detail Addict Medium Grade Clay Bar
- Detail Addict Detail Spray
- Detail Addict Engine + Wheel Cleaner
- Detail Addict Glass Cleaner
- Detail Addict Rub & Shine
- Detail Addict Sealant Wax
Tools Used:

- Detail Addict Backing Plate
- Detail Addict Hydro 5.5" Crimson Finishing Foam
- Detail Addict Hydro 5.5" Tangerine Ultra Polishing Foam
- ACE TurboStick
- Camspray Foamer Attachment
- Gilmour Foamaster II (If DO NOT have pressure washer.)
- Detail Addict Grit Guard Bucket Insert
- Detail Addict Water Softening System
- Gilmour Zinc Fireman's Power Flow Nozzle
- Porter Cable 7424XP
- Detail Addict Applicator Grip Dressing
- Detail Addict Microfiber Auto Wash Mitt
- Detail Addict Glass Towel
- Detail Addict Microfiber Polishing Towel
- Detail Addict Microfiber Waffle Drying Towel

Before:

The car was very clean to begin with. The owner has taken car of his baby!




You can see what the previous detailer had done. It didn't look nice under good lighting!


Other parts of the hood had swirls and scratches. Not as bad as the middle part of the hood.


One pass with out G-2500 with our Tangerine Hydro Pad turned out great! But it wasn't good enough for us!


We then used our G-1500 with our Tangerine Hydro Pad. Then a pass with our G-2500 with our Tangerine Orange Pad. Finished it with our G-3500 with our Crimson Hydro Pad. Look at how different it looks!




All finished!!!










Let me know if you guys have any questions! Hope you enjoyed this write-up. Thanks!
