Detail Party - BMW

This 12 year old Z3 was detailers nightmare. Everything from simple swirls to deep scratches, etching ,etc. It didn't turn out too bad and my buddy was happy with the end result. Dylan should be too. He put in a $300 Adams order this week.

Lookin' good!

Sometimes the cars in that condition are the most fun b/c the turn around is so dramatic.

CamaroDreams, He had just recently purchased this, and I'm pretty sure it was a replacment top, within the last couple years anyway. It cleaned up nice with just soap and water.

I thought so to until my Adams Glaze and Americana arrived recently and I applied it to Buzz on Tuesday. The difference was stunning as I added each product. I ran out of time for pictures of it Tuesday when I completed it, and drove the 68 yesterday. Was planning on heading to a car show last night and was going to grab some action pic's and the weather turned to crap. In any case, it's a really shinny garage queen right now. Hopefully by the weekend.

The other car we did was a 2011 Mustang that turned out really good too. I'll try to get both the Stang and the Camaro up by next week.
