Toronto Detailing Gem

I was browsing M5board's detailing section for some tips and products people are using, and came across Wes at Orion Detailing and some of his work. I was quite impressed by their work, and surprised they were in Toronto. I recently got my front end painted, so I decided to get the car 2 stage polished and then Opticoat sealant/paint protection before getting a clear bra put on the front end.

Took the car to Orion Detailing, and they are a great group of guys to deal with. I'll let the pics talk for themselves. Thanks again Wes.

Here is the full write up.



This was totally a coincidence that two e39 M5s came in for a 2 stage polish + Opti Coat Pro. They had both booked on the same day so I ended up doing the write up on both cars at the same time which is a first and was quite interesting to do. I was very happy with the out come on both cars as were the owners so enjoy seeing the process and final pics!



Arrival (you should have seen both owners' faces lol)




Masking off the rubber trim after the wash and clay




Taking paint measurements






Before


After


50/50 shot




Opti Coat Pro


Application






And the finished pics
















I hope you enjoyed the pics as much as I enjoyed working on my favorite generation M5!
