SpecC Detailed: TiAg BMW E90 325i with VOLKS
This car was in wayyyy better condition than I ever imagined possible. Pictures will show later. Car belongs to Andy@LTBMW
Paint correction was pretty fun with this car excluding the backbreaking labor part. There were hardly any swirls at all. Most of it went away with Meguiar's M205 and DD uber green pad. Some required PO203S and green pad. Some random RDS were around too. After 2 passes of DD uber yellow and M105, I stopped chasing some of those.
Since it was sunny out, I burned my eyeballs trying to look for swirls on a SILVER car. I thought it'd be worse, but this is almost perfect as it is. Man, that previous detailer really did a good job!
First time doing an entire car with the Gloss-it backing plate too. I'd say this performs just as well as the 3M one. The 3" one really wasn't necessary in my opinion, but it was really nice to have.
Failed foam cannon - it needed cleaning apparently.
DD uber wash sponge
Detailedimage waffle weave drying towel
Majestic solutions super green stuff - on trim and tight areas
ONR - on door shuts
Zymol clay - half my bar was gone
ONR clay lube
91% isopropyl alcohol
Meguiar's M105 + DD Uber Yellow 5.5" pad - Spot polishing for random deep scratches
Meguiar's M205 + DD Uber Green 5.5" and 4" pads
Menzerna PO203S + DD Uber green 5.5" and 4"
Menzerna PO85RD + DD Ube blue 5.5" and 4"
Gloss-it 5" and 3" backing plates

Swissvax Wheel brush
Crappy pep boys tire brush
Gloss-it tire dressing
M205 by hand on the lips
DG601 + 105 sealant
Trim and other rubber
Swissvax Pneu - pretty decent for a trim dressing. I would like it glossier, but the owner thought something like Black WOW was greasy.
0000 steel wool
Majestic solutions super green stuff
P21S polishing soap
Sealant and Wax
Gloss-it gloss enhancer
Yes, this car got some VINTAGE!
Wheel gel workin it
I don't know what I'd do without super green stuff.
I don't think these have ever been cleaned until now.
Clay bar used on a few panels vs new clay.
The mighty CLAY DESTROYER
Now let's go swirl hunting.
Do your eyeballs hurt as much as mine do? :thud:
Polish - 4
Car - 0
Eyeballs - -1
This was the only real thing wrong with the car.

Now how about that Gloss it tire dressing?
DONE! Sun pictures later. I think I like it better than Pneu!

It's a tad glossier than Pneu which is what I really like about it.
