Daytona Violett M3 Detailed by freerider

We finally got to do the Daytona Violett M3 this weekend.
This was a full house detail, including interior, engine bay, the works.

This M3 is a single owner vehicle, and was purchased brand new in 1994 by its current owner.
And NO, he doesnt want to sell. EVER

Only took one before pic, this was on the bonnet, Swirls where not terrible and came out quite easily with Menzerna SIP.



Some 5050 shots on the boot lid







Took this pic of the flake in the paint



Completed boot lid



flex in action



The carpets where cleaned with SmartCarpet, a product which just amazes me more with every use.





Finally we sealed with the old favourite, Chemical Guys - Extreme Top coat paint sealant with 3x Carnauba. always leaves a nice wet looking finish.

WOW, looks soaking wet. Is the wet finish mostly due to the Extreme Top-Coat? I'm looking to buy some sealant soon and hadn't heard of this one.

It's from the excellent job freerider has done polishing the paint. 95% of the end result is the polish, the wax/sealant can help give it that small extra pop, but if your paint is trashed then the end result will look bad regardless if you use a $10 wax or a $2000 wax.

Not to spoil people's fun, but that color is depressing.

Holy Shiz, nice job, looks like a brand new car. What did you use on the engine?
