    Thread: WaxWerks Detailed: Black E36 M3 Paint Correction

    1. 08-06-2012 08:33 PM #1
      Customer contacted me, was local, and asked for a full paint correction and interior wipedown, plus wheel polish, exhaust polish and engine bay cleaning. I actually had severe allergic reactions while detailing this car halfway through and was sent to the ER for a little while, unsure at this point if it was the detailing products or something I ate. I'm doing okay now and the M3 came out great, so onto the writeup!

      - Taped up
      - 3 step - m105 -> menz sip -> opti poli-seal
      - Rubber and vinyl cleaned w/ In and Out, Prima nero
      - Exhaust tips polished
      - Suspension polished w/ Optimum Metal Polish and Poliseal

      Looks great Sorry if I missed it, but what product did you use for the plastic trim? I'm trying to find something that will help to restore faded trim.

      Thanks, I'll check it out. Meant to ask you one more thing... do you know where I could find one of those carpet scrubbing pads for your DA? This would save me a TON of scrubbing

      My partner bought it off the CG site for a real low price, unfortunately I don't know what it's called but we got our most recent restock off Chemical guys, so try there. Goodluck
