Default Detailed: 97 BMW Z3 with 19k miles

A customer brought this by wanting it cleaned up. I did not realize at first that this car was this low of mileage because the paint sure told a different story. After looking at the windsheild for his next oil change, I noticed it said 21000 miles..... Odometer said 19300! I was floored, because the paint was so bad.

Procedure:
Foam wash w/ dawn
Top Cleaned with Ragg top cleaner then coated with 303 Fabric Guard
Wheels and tires cleaned with Eagle 1 A2Z Cleaner, then sealed with Zaino AIO
Paint was cleaned with M105 on a surbuf pad followed by 205 with tangerine pad
Waxed with Poor Boys Natty's blue
Seats were cleaned with Meguiars Leather cleaner/conditioner and interior with Quik interior spray.

Here it is as it was delivered to me:






Dawn wash to remove contaminants:



Under the lights after doing a test spot of m105/surbuf followed by 205/tangerine:



The whole hood under the lights is disgusting:



Then the fenders and trunk:






AFTERS under light:






Outside:

Thanks Bandoni and 93g2.

Its done through my foam cannon and pressure washer. Sorry forgot to mention that. And its just straight blue dawn soap. And actually this mixture had a little Meguiars APC in it too to help cut the wax that was on it even more. Thanks Bigg!

Thanks for sharing. That looks great when finished, even better than I expected!
I really like the interiors of those bimmers, much better than the Z4 interior.
