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?
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
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
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!
