14 Hour Paint Correction: 2001 BMW 540i
2001 BMW 540i

This car was purchased about two weeks prior to this detail. The owner was considering a repaint, but he saw how much of an improvement I could make based upon my threads I posted here.

To say that this car was hammered would be an understatement. It seemed as though it had been washed by the previous owner with a brillo pad and dawn. There was zero wax protection and about two-dozen tree sap deposits.

you can't really see the work you did in the night pictures.

What did you use to get off the tree sap?
