Exclamation Facebook Official Bimmerpost Event Notification Group

I have created a facebook group dedicated to posting information for relevant meets/caravans/runs/photoshoots/events/races.

The idea of it is to have easier access to all information pertaining to all meets in the tristate area. There's nothing worse than finding out you missed a meet because you didn't know about it, or ended up meeting at the wrong location due to a change in meeting points and u didn't check the forum. so to avoid all this nonsense, its much easier to keep up on these things when its a group in the facebook.

the current e90post tristate chat group is used for chat, this group will be the informative supplement to it providing all relevant information for meets and events.

Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/groups/tristatebmwmeets/

all the forums were a lil slower this summer bc everyone but me is on FB. i refuse to do it. im going to hold out for as long as i can. i think its more important for me to finally have a blog page/website built...never really had one lol.

yes i do wetsnding. you can follow my current project here:

http://www.autopiaforums.com/forums/...surprises.html

Read his sig, they're made of microfiber.

Andrew you'd be very proud of me if you saw the job I tackled with my M3 this week. I purchased a 1000 watt hologen lamp and did my M3 with some M105 and M205 (orange and blue pads on a PC). Finished her up with Einszett Glanz Wax.. That wax really put the icing on the cake. I started it last thursday and worked a few hours each day little by little. The lamp really helps you get a glimpse of EVERYTHING that you cant see with normal lighting. I still have some finishing touches and then Ill get started with the interior.

firstly george, my hands have just been upgraded to GOLD

well good for you but why would i be proud? this woud explain why you never hit me up for that detail. LOL U fkkker! Glanz is really good stuff. i havent used it much recently but its still awsome stuff. i heard 2 layers improves the gloss.
your lucky your car is white bc on a hot, humid day...glanz on a dark colored car leaves streaks & can also leave a haze that can be a pita to remove. yea glanz is great! happy detailin!

I meant proud as in you would be impressed with the results of my near 25 hour work using the right products. Not just throwing 5 coats of wax like non detailers thinking that will fully correct paint.

Andrew I would definitely reach out to you but I'm in Westchester so it would be hard for me to drop off the car and come get it. Also I sorta like doing my own detail work. I might not drop by your shop but I always drop the word for you whenever Im speaking to people in your neck of the woods.

Within the past few years its become a hobby of mine. I guess its my therapy and takes me away from the pressures of my everyday life lol. I love seeing the before and after comparison! I couldn't do this for hire by any means. A lot of people don't realize how truly difficult it can be to detail a car the proper way. A lot of car people just wanna compare pricing rather than products and methods used.

I needa know how to detail/wetsand and all that sh%t. I think all I am missing is a rotary buffer and great products. I would like to take on my own car as a project. Andrew you seen it, hopefully you remembered it. I believe it can look much better then it already does.

if you have no experience wetsanding then learning as you go on your own car is going to lead to burned edges, holograms & all kinds of other goodies. when i learned i had the painter to cover my rear end if i messed up. i was 18, just working my tail off in my uncles friends body shop as the low man on the scrotum pole as they sometimes would call me lol. wetsanding takes a alot of skill & just as much knowledge of what your doing. i still wetsand by hand. i disagree with using an orbital or air sander for wetsanding work. i know thats the new sheezeeeee heezyyyyy but its best done with your hands. you need to feel the car & feel the paint. your eyes need to be trained to see paint defects. my first teacher would point out fisheyes, dust nibs & other stuff like runs in the clear & without him pointing them out, i wouldnt even known they were there. hell i was tought to wetsand to match the factory orangepeel. so if the qp was painted but the door wasnt, you couldnt tell bc the new peel blended in with the old peel. polish up the side of the car & you can never tell she was painted. thats asuming you have good paint & prep work. i dont know, im stuck with the old skool skills i was tought about 15 years ago. im gettin old. no i wont teach you how to wetsand lol.

just remember what your parents prob told you, that you learn from your mistakes. its so cheezy but so true.

out of all things detailing i do love wetsanding the best. not bc of the potential $ but bc a flat, zero peel car looks amazing!

i can wetsand with my eyes closed. thats how i used to practice my form & technique. close my eyes, open them, then study the pattern of micro scratches left behind by the sandpaper. also used to do this with my rotary to train myself to have good form & stuff. if you can memorize the pattern the machine is supposed to go in & can controll the machine to go where you want it to go then your golden. when i first learned how to rotary compund the machine would pull me from side to side. it takes alot of time on the wheel to be able to manipulate the polisher to move with the shape of the body.
