    Default E34 Reflections (feel free to post yours)

    I finally got around to detailing the bimmer. took a good day but its always worth it. I did a full detail all the way to the engine compartment. I achieved this reflection Using a patented 3 step process. After you wash the exterior really good and dress all the rubber and vinyl (so it doesnt soak up product and stain) its time for step 1 the clay bar. Simple process anyone can do it, then Step 2 I hit it with the Porter Cable Random Orbitol and some of Rightlook's clear coat compound and finished it all off with Top of THe LInes Bahama Mama Carnuba Wax. not bad for a 13 year old car huh?

    Thats alota swirl, gotta use some light cut compound on that baby and she will look brand new. I wish I had a white car like urs, there so much easier keep lookin clean.

    On the right was one pass with poorboys ssr1.

    I stepped it up to ssr2.5 with a medium cutting pad after that.
