1M x Wes_R (36 pics)



Hey Maxbimmer,



This 1M is actually owned by a very good friend who had his eye on it for a couple months in the BMW Toronto showroom. I didn't think he was going to pull the trigger but surprisingly he did and in it came just before Christmas. I took my time with this one as I wanted it perfect and as shiny as it could be. Hopefully the detail added to the value hahaha.



Arrival pics








Always start with the rims before the wash


Using a brush to clean inside the lugnut area


Microfiber mitt to clean the rim face




Washing with a microfiber chenille mitt and always doing the 2 Bucket Method




Taking paint measurements to see how thick the paint is as well as to long out for any repaints or thin areas to be weary of

My 1M could use a solid go round like this.

Very nice!
