This BMW needed a LOT of TLC. The paint was scarred and abused from years of neglect, which showed in the fenders, side skirts and clear coat failure across the car. After a good wash, the swirls even showed up worse than ever, also allowing me to see some oxidation in the paint. I had my work cut out for me!
Once the car was washed and clayed, I moved the BMW into the garage and set up a test spot. After 2 passes with my orange pad and Swirl, the paint was looking crisp and black. When the paint was finally polished, I applied a wax and left it to cure overnight.
The next day I set to vacuuming the floors, spot removing and extractions, since this too would take all day in the sun and overnight to dry completely. First I vacuumed all the carpets and realized some of the stains were set in longer than I thought, others weren’t stains, but burn marks and others would just require a little work. Next, I grabbed my solution and began to scrub the stains out of the carpets. Once the carpets had been treated with stain remover, I grabbed my extractor and started to extract all the carpets, including the floor mat. The dirty water that came out of these carpets was just amazingly dark. The car was then left in the garage overnight to dry.
The next day I pulled the car into the sun to finish drying and started cleaning and protecting the vinyl and leather. Then all that was left was to protect the black trim, clean the engine bay, waxing the wheels, dressing the tires, cleaning the windows and mirrors and wiping the wax residue off. Finally I got my after pictures taken care of and the owner came back to retrieve a cleaner car.
