BMW 1M by Beau Technique - The Midlands Detailer


Posted already but try again

This BMW 1M required some much needed all round lifting up. Swirl markings, Fine scratches, RDS, Stone chips, Gravel rash... The list went on. Enjoy the journey : )





















Bit of foamy action courtesy of Envy car care bubbly bubbly to soak the grime prior to getting all grubby with the wheel and bodywork washing...



Decontamination carried out with Envy car care iron awe, Carpro tar X and followed by Carbon Collective exfolimitt...



Once all wash prep carried out, Vehicle was inspected under light source and correct material and media chosen to target the defects within the clear coated surfaces.
RDS tackled with 3M perfect it wool pad and Scholl Concepts S17+ via Flex rotary...







As you can see this certainly improved gloss levels straight away along with knocking the RDS clean out of the clear coated surfaces. This continued round whole vehicle prior to carrying out paint correction to rid swirl markings and finer scratches...



Opting for the old traditional zenith technique the paintwork refined quite well with wool in fairness and most certainly increased gloss and clarity...



Gravel rash wash tended to on rear quarters firstly as this was a complete eyesore...

Before


During


And all complete


Stone chips were to be touched in which were tended to until we came to the lower bib sections of front bumper which was substantially damaged so opted for same option as rear quarters...

Before


After


Before


After


Well worth the additional labour.
Wheels were fully removed and sealed along with wheel bolts repeated in high temp enamel...





And of course wheel arches deep cleaned and tidied up...

[/url]

Another small but significant issue client wanted addressing was a hand full of bolts under bonnets. These were removed and again high temp enamel painted...





All is in the details of course.
Few paint correction shots...

















A few soldiers remained left in the battle field due to ensuring paint thickness levels were remained stable and to not remove unnecessary levels of paint for future potential work if and when required.

Usual whistles and bells addressed and a complete engine detail and interior valet carried out plus paintwork protected with Polish Angel famous topped with connoisseur rapid waxx.
Some finished shots...



















One for the direct light whores : )



Thanks for looking...

What a stunning car and very rare on UK roads, you've done a brilliant job. one question, what is that device you used to prop up the bonnet and where did you get/purchase from? that's two questions

Thanks. Take a look through Google or Ebay for dog lock. Designed to have the tailgate or a door ajar when car is parked so dogs can get air. Doesn't always fit every application but works for most.

That looks stunning excellent work and write up

Just a question about the tyres, which brand tyre dressing have you used it's just the way I like them sets the car off.
