We have here a BMW F30 Executive line, all the way from Penang. We arrived early to see the car already parked and ready for us to work on. Upon arrival, the car look spanky clean and new only to find out…
A quick walk around the car, still looked very clean to us. As we look into the details…
Some unknown spots of black were all over the car, especially the flat panels.
We also found that the car is covered in some form of tree sap.
These tree sap stains were all over the car.
We continue to inspect the car’s paint defects but found that the paint is still in a rather good condition.
Inspected other panels and the paint is still in a swirl free condition.
The owner then brief us that he had not washed the car since the delivery, it was barely the 3rd day of ownership.
We move on to the cleaning and washing process.
The paint is unprotected but clean, the surface had no tension hence the water did not bead.
Areas like this were not left out from the cleaning, although we do not always show our work fully but it does not mean we skip it.
This area was cleaned with a multi purpose cleaner diluted to milder.
We gave the rims much attention too. This was how it looked like after barely 3 days of driving. It was dull and covered in brake dust.
Close up on the amount of brake dust.
We use specific detailing brushes for wheel cleaning with a combo of a wheel cleaner.
50/50 on the cleaned and dirty wheels.
You can obviously see the difference in the cleanliness, now to get it coating ready.
The rims are now cleaned and ready to be coated.
Rims are coated, look at the definition in gloss!
Once the car is cleaned, tree sap stains removed, we wipe down the car with alcohol to further stripe the oil and grease, then we Opti-Coated the car. Here are the results.
