KDS Detailing BMW M3 limited edition Platinum Wet Sand Package.

Hi guys,

So it’s been a while since my last thread of a KDS Detailing customer car, my last thread actually being my own car a TVR Tuscan (which is now sold), and I do have a replacement car to restore very soon and will be documented too

So here is the feature car as per title of this thread,

A fully wet sanded BMW M3 limited edition car.

The new customer to KDS rang and chose the Platinum Wet Sand package to resolve the dreaded poor paint finish on new BMW's,
this is not Just a BMW problem and have noticed the "trend" of many other car manufactures which have the similar issue.

I decided to post a HD video first instead of photos.
The reason behind this,

We have found and seen for ourselves recently that photos are easy to alter to show what you wish and what you don’t want to show and not give the real results even more so when it comes to showing orange peel removal.
We found its very difficult to alter a "true" HD video

Here at KDS we try our best to not use headline grabbing titles or ANY alteration of photos and videos to show our work,
I like the fact we been called on many occasions as "transparent" and hide nothing.

Here's the video

This car is now on our website:

Along with a few others, finally lol






Sorry for lack of threads hopefully we will be able to update more often in the future now I have additional staff to deal with the IT data base of photos and videos.

More to come in the future and hope you enjoyed the video

Regards Kelly

Great result, and some very arty filming

I know what you mean about the trend towards more orange peel, I'm having to alter my painting techniques to suit as a glass finish on a freshly painted panel would stand out like a sore thumb against OEM paint!

And did I spot a blade being used to remove the sanding slurry? I'm sure some on here would shed tears over that but I find them perfect for that application.

As ever, awesome work. The colour of that Veyron and the tint in its paint is just beautiful!

Thanks for sharing.
