I just got back (at 3am) from finishing prepping Raff's car for bimmerfest. I'm pretty sure it is the cleanest car on the planet. It's not 100% swirl free by any means (8 year old BLACK paint :eek:), but it looks awesome!

Before


Pre-wax... this is the paint without anything on it


After

Looks like you are going to be on the waiting list man, he is starting to get some booking....

Hey J.J, I got you another client when ever you have time, Edgar from Need4Speed wants his car done for Bimmerfest, after seeing mine.

I think you have seen his car. Here it is. Let see you do your magic on this car.

Thanks for the compliments.

I used

ONR and DP Autobathe wash (single bucket), with a schmitt
EZ Brush/Wash from above for wheels (they were pretty clean)
Meg's clay while car is still wet - used clay lube too
XMT4 with orange pad
XMT2 with white pad
Cleaner Wax
Sealant
Wax

The car looks good, but I'm worried about holograms and compounding haze. I couldn't really check the car out very well in the dimly lit garage (no halogens ). I'm waiting to see if Raff approves when he pulls it out in the sun later today haha. I'm not sure if one pass of XMT2 was enough to get rid of the haze left over from XMT4, and there were still holograms left over from polishing the hood with XMT2.

I want menzerna


Thanks for the compliments though!

Raff, let me know how it looks so i can make sure it's ok for Bfest!

Some pics of the work from the last night. NOTE: (All these photos are raw no editing, which I don't know how to do it any way... he he)

One of the steps the J.J. was doing on the car.



Here is the hood just a couple of minutes ago outside with the sunlight.



Here is the roof of the Touring.


Rear tailgate.



Front Passenger panel.


Rear driver side panel.



Passenger side rear panel.


Can anyone guess which part of the car is this... this one is a sick shot.


Here is another one.


Its the Rear Passenger Door...


Front and side shots of the car.





Thanks and big UPS to J.J. for a bass ass job. You might have to do some of the sideskirts, but understandable since you stayed at my house till 2:30am and it was dark.
Here is more pics at this link, J.J, feel free to pull any pics of of there.

Haha, yes, AW GLOWS when it's clean!

And Raff, is this a hologram or just something cast from the sun?
