Hi guys

I have BMW Z4M interested in a Mobile Minor paint correction, the goal here was to remove 50+% paint defects. The owner also asked me to perform a convertible treatment using provided by owner, 303 fabric convertible kit. I didn't take many pictures on this one, and my batteries were low on my Fenix FK35 and HP11 at the end of the day...so Im really sorry for lack of afters or 50/50s.

Kranzle 1120T with foam cannon
Grit guard buckets
Wheel woolies set
Swissvax wheel brush
EZ wheel brush
Adams wheel stick 601
Nanoskin autoscrub clay
Griots Garage 6 in and 3 in Polishers
Uber yellow buffing pad
Meguiars MF cutting pad


Products

Looks like a good job! Do you recommend using an application like W99 as an alternative to a clay bar, or do they serve for different purposes? I've got so many swell marks, dirt and grime built up in my paintwork, I'd like to explore something like this to get that factory look restored somewhat.

1z w99 is a all purpose cleaner, not a clay bar. Wolf's deironizer can be used to remove iron particles, but everything else still needs to be clay.

Great job OP! You need to clay the car. Then polish it.
