Arrow Magic Detail • BMW 1M • Minor Correction • Ceramishield PRO • prize giveaway comp!

Hey guys,

Happy new year to you all!! I'd like to start by wishing my colleagues, friends and supporters all the best for 2014!

To celebrate the arrival of 2014 we are kicking the new year off with a giveaway competition!! The prize is a bottle of bespoke luxury car shampoo by Mitchell & King, with YOUR name printed on the label!

To enter our competition and be in with a chance of winning this unique gift, all you have to do is log onto Facebook and like our page - then follow the other instructions on one of the pictures

Good luck to all those who decide to enter

So, with details of our first competition of the year out of the way, I'd like to kick off our 2014 DW campaign with this BMW 1M we had in last year for a Minor Correction package, which was finished with Ceramishield PRO (approved detailer only - at the time).

The car arrived not looking bad, having also been fitted with 3M Ventureshield via a 3rd party contact of ours. The whole job was planned and organised by ourselves, so once the Ventureshield was fitted off-site we went to collect the car and bring it back to base..











Not too shabby!!

As always we started in the usual way, with a snow foam combo to soften any dirt and transport off the loose stuff, prior to a 2 bucket wash..



Looking great just after a rinse!!

The whole vehicle was then sprayed with Iron-X to remove any iron contamination - was quite surprised at the results given BMW's seriously dusty brake pads and the fact the car was white, I was expecting it to be really bad but it actually wasn't, hardly any iron removed!



Once the iron was removed, so was the tar, then the car was clayed which left us with a really clean base to work with..



Wheels off and treated to the same (iron/tar/clay)



They were then given 2 layers of Poorboys Wheel Sealant (seen some people giving this product some bad press on here as of late, not sure why great product at the price point).





With the wheels off and car on the ramp the calipers and arches were cleaned..



Then it was time to get down to it, assessing the damage and coming up with a solution from just a single stage on BMW's notoriously 'hard' paint, or at least so you'd think..





Half a dozen passes with Scholl S17 on the associated orange pad left us with a near perfect finish from the off.





This little bird bomb actually took 3 hits in total to remove - and rather than step up the pad/polish combo I stuck in there with S17 on the orange pad, 1200rpm and quite a lot of pressure, but only 4 or 5 passes..





This ensured minimal micron removal. In hindsight I wish I took picture after each stage where you could see it shrinking and shrinking..

Then it was given 2x IPA wipedowns to ensure all polishing oils were removed from the surface and that it was prepared for the sealant. Our client chose Ceramishield Pro, which at the time was for application via approved detailers only, and something I carried in stock



And the finished results?

That should just about do for our first writeup in about 3 months, and to open our 2014 account with. We have some tasty write-ups to get online when we have time, including full corrections and Modesta coatings on a Porsche 993 Turbo and Porsche Carrera GT!

Thanks again to all our friends and followers.

All comments and questions are welcome.

Best wishes,
Matt.

Wow! Very nice work..

S17 is great stuff, and scholl has gotten some nice pads too.

The M1 is awsome, and this was not a bad one!

What a stunning looking car. I don't like the looks of the 1 series but with some bigger arches and some nice touches it's amazing how it can be transformed!!

Very nice job!

So you polished the ventureshield?
Or isn't the whole car wrapped in ventureshield?

Looks stunning, very good results especially for a white. I had a little chuckle at the sign where the final results were taken.
