e36 M3 x Wes_R (30 pics)

Hey Maxbimmers,



This client was actually one of my first customers that I had lost contact with for a couple years, but found on Instagram. We exchanged numbers, setup a date, and into the shop it came. All I was told was to "work your magic" lol. This ended up being a 2 stage polish protected afterward with Gloss Coat, the replacement for Opti Coat 2.0, which I am very happy with. Easy to apply, very glossy, and feels pretty slick too! Did I mention I like Estoril Blue?



On arrival








Cleaning the inner barrel of the wheels


Wiping down the rim face with a microfibre mitt


Cleaning in the lugnut area


And cleaning in the wheel wells




Washing always using the 2 Bucket Method


Claybarred the paint using the Nano Skin Mitt


And dried it with a plush microfibre towel

Masked off all rubber trim




Taking paint measurements (note: The entire car had been repainted by Luxury in Etibocoke. The reason for such high paint readings)






Now the fun begins

All in all I would say we got it to an 8.5-9 out of 10 minus the deeper scratches that couldn't be buffed out. All in all still very happy with the correction and shine achieved.

Unmasking the trim


Cleaning out the polish residue


Cleaning the windows


And dressing the tires




And the star of the show, Opti Gloss Coat




Finally the finished product. Unfortunately no sun out, just light snow and autumn leaves.




This shot shows the gloss best and is one of my favorite pics of the set
