Funny thing about this car is we had actually 2 stage polished it and protected it with Opti Coat Pro in the spring for the previous owner. Randomly by chance the new owner brought in his Cayenne diesel and mentioned he had bought this Scud and wanted to bring it in for another detail before storage. Lol small world and funny how things work out like that sometimes.

I didn't get pics the first time but definitely with it in again I had to get pics of it in the shop!



Arrival pics








Vacuum the carpets err floor






Dust out the crevices

I love this wheel




I really like this shot for some reason


And me doing my Neo Matrix detailing shot




We cleaned the pedals






Then finally wiped everything down starting with the door


The seats




And finally, the floor




As usual the rims first on the exterior




I love this pic




Always 2 Bucket Method when we wash








I just machine waxed the paint at a low speed, nothing interesting, but I tried to make it look interesting lol

Me, Myself, and I waxing




Clean the windows


Dress the tires


And last but not least, use a tooth pick to clean the wax out the crevices




And now, the finished pics










And finally, my last two favourite pictures

We had Opti Coated this client's BMW F31 and he had mentioned how he had lost a Dakar Yellow e46 M3 in a flood and was trying to figure out what to replace it with. I mentioned an e39 M5 and I guess that planted the seed in his head because a couple months later this low mileage M5 showed up lolol.

Sorry about the lack of after pics but due to the overcast I didn't really get any good shots.



Arrival




Cleaning the wheels, specifically the lugnut area


Engine shampooed and dressed


Paint measured

This client had just purchased this SRT8 and wanted to get a "fresh" start with it. He stopped by for an initial assessment and we concluded on a 2 stage polish. I tried to convince him on at least Opti Coat 2.0 or the new version Gloss Coat but in the end we just protected it with a sealant. All in all I was very happy with the out come and the pics. Hope you enjoy the transformation on this beast!



Arrival to the shop




Started with the wheels as usual


Cleaning the wheel well




Measuring the paint

Hey M5 Boarders,



This client was actually one of my first customers that I had lost contact with for a couple years, but found on Instagram. We exchanged numbers, setup a date, and into the shop it came. All I was told was to "work your magic" lol. This ended up being a 2 stage polish protected afterward with Gloss Coat, the replacement for Opti Coat 2.0, which I am very happy with. Easy to apply, very glossy, and feels pretty slick too! Did I mention I like Estoril Blue?



On arrival








Cleaning the inner barrel of the wheels


Wiping down the rim face with a microfibre mitt


Cleaning in the lugnut area


And cleaning in the wheel wells




Washing always using the 2 Bucket Method


Claybarred the paint using the Nano Skin Mitt


And dried it with a plush microfibre towel
[/QUOTE]



Masked off all rubber trim




Taking paint measurements (note: The entire car had been repainted by Luxury in Etibocoke. The reason for such high paint readings)






Now the fun begins
Before


After

All in all I would say we got it to an 8.5-9 out of 10 minus the deeper scratches that couldn't be buffed out. All in all still very happy with the correction and shine achieved.



Unmasking the trim


Cleaning out the polish residue


Cleaning the windows


And dressing the tires




And the star of the show, Opti Gloss Coat




Finally the finished product. Unfortunately no sun out, just light snow and autumn leaves.




This shot shows the gloss best and is one of my favorite pics of the set






And finally an artsy fartsy miami basel shot lol




Hope you enjoyed the transformation on this classic in a classic color!

Thanks
Wes
