This was a great job for us, a complete detail with 3M PPF install.

The subject was a BMW M3 that my customer just picked up, he wanted to get it cleaned up and protected from the elements, as well requested that we install 3M PPF on the Front Bumper and Side Skirts.

The car was not in bad shape at all the light scratches and swirls were not even noticed until we hit it up with a ton of different lighting. So minor we could not pick them up in pictures but they were there and it required 2 steps to pull them out. The metallic paint hid them extremely well.

Mission: to max out the shine via Menzerna SIP and PO85RD, give it some nice glow and shine with Swissvax Divine and make sure the car is prepped correctly for the 3M PPF install.
