BMW Z4M Coupe Autofinesse Detail
 
Hi guys

Heres another BMW Z4M autofinesse detail, this one belongs to my childhood friend. He has no time for 2 bucket wash, so I suggested the Enhancement detail with an AF punch. The goal was to restore gloss and protected from California winter ( rains )

Tools used

Uber Green pads


Wheels

AG CWC
various brushes
Tires dressed with AF Gloss

Wash

2 grit guard buckets
2 Uber no name towels
ONR
Auto Finesse Oblitarate

Prep

Autoscrub and ONR lube
Clay

Polishing

AF Rejuvenate

LSP

AF desire


Before


The car was pretty dirty, haven't been washed for months because of his ankle injury.

Starting with wheels first as always, but I sold my Kranzle Power washer, so Im doing it old fashion. Rinse, apply AG CWC ( autoglym custome wheel cleaner ) on wheels n tires, agitate all areas, and rinse.

Then attention was brought to the paint, normally I would Foam the car with foam cannon, but I doing this old fashion again. Using AF Oblitarate to knock off as much grimes as possible around the car, then Rinse and perform an ONR wash.

Then I prep the car with Autoscrub and clay ( Autoscrub wasn't behaving good ) Polished with AF Rejuvenate and applied a coat of AF Desire

Hey, great job! The white paint really pops, which I know is hard to do. :thumbsup:
