Bmw Z8 - 2000

Bmw Z8 from 2000 with only 23000 kms and 10 years of low usage , but the swirls, holograms and bad washes were all over the place.
So..after initial wash and claying the preparation begins




Side and front grills removed for a perfect finish as long i can give.



Already prepared for paint correction.
Almost every panel had 3 to 5 polishes, from 3M FCP to 85RD.
A few befores and afters










Sideways with sanding marks




Front corrected...





At this time i spent 30 hours in this Z8



Trunk






Drivers door a really PITA to fully corrected




100%




the other door...





The rear bumper i spent a lot of time correcting , as i long i recall it was since returning from lunch 14:00 to 20:00 , at one time i really think it was time for a repaint






Lower part corrected




Rear lights




After 90 hours spent of work e as a Estado de Concurso the time don´t have limit , only the Z8 owner patience

Wheels , bolts and everything detailed




New wash and time to remount the grills and engine rubbers




Motor before



and after with 400 cleaned horses




New dismantling of interior parts



Everything detailed and protected






The paint was cleansed with DLPrime Lite and SN for protection , with 1 hour of curing, 125 hours later.











more pics










Outside the garage.










A small video from a Canon 550D.


Hope you enjoyed.

Superb work there, on a very good-looking vehicle. IMO Silvers can be just as demanding as e.g. solid blacks, it's just harder to spot all the imperfections. Looks like you did quite well though

Keep them coming!


Kind regards,

Ebbe

As Ebbe says, silver cars are a problem to spot faults and to take proper pictures. The amount of attention to every bit is outstanding. Well done Rui!

You always raise the bar my friend
