e60 M5 x Wes_R (61 pics)

Hey M5Boarders,



I had been speaking to the owner of this Indy Red M5 for a couple years off and on to get it detailed. He finally decided to get it done as he was entering it in a show. We discussed what was to be done and the budget and finally figured out the date. This job ended up being a 1 stage polish + interior.















I started with the interior and vacuumed the carpets, mats, etc.








Started dusting and detailing the crevices and cracks








And then started the wipe down of all surface with all purpose cleaner








Pedals were cleaned as well




And here is a shot of me detailing doing my best Neo Matrix impersonation


Even though it may seem like the job was simple the interior was in pretty rough shape.



Moving on to the exterior I started with the wheels as usual








Washed using the 2 bucket method




Rinsed down




And clayed while the car was still wet


The paint was very rough




Then finally dried down with a plush microfiber towel




After drying all rubber trim was masked up




The paint really needed a 2 stage polish but again due to the owner's budget we only did a 1 stage polish. I tried a couple polishes to get the best results and this is what I got.

My test spot on the worst area of the car


A quick shot of me polishing

Not perfect but a huge improvement and more correction then I was expecting!



I also polished the headlights and taillights

After




Unmasked the rubber trim




Then wiped down the paint with IPA alcohol






Because this was going to be driven in the snow I wanted to use a strong protector. Permanon Platinum was my choice.




Tires were dressed


Windows cleaned




And here are the afters



Very glossy
























I love this shot!




And finished interior shots






And finally my favorite pic of the set


I believe it went straight to the show afterwards.



Hope you enjoyed the write up on this beautifully coloured M5 and that you guys/gals are staying warm in this crazy winter!
