    Oakes Detailed: 2009 335 Diesel -- Body Shop Nightmare

    Came across this on another forum and thought it might be of interest here...

    A Paint corrective detail of a 2009 BMW 335 Diesel, in the infamous BMW Jet Black that fell victim to poor body shop detailing as you will clearly see in the pictures. This 1,700 mile 335d looked far too defected for its age, so it was evident that full correction was needed. After getting consistent readings across the car with the paint gauge, Mikhael and I went to work to make this 2009 car ready for 2010. The damage was unfair to the owner, especially being the first car he has ever purchased, so we made every effort to ensure it was perfect when it left my hands. The other goal was to get this car properly protected for the north east winters, giving it a double sealant and then Collinites 845 wax, as well as sealing the wheels. I will let the pictures do the talking on this one, as they are worth a thousand words themselves.

    Process:
    Menzerna SIP Yellow pad
    Menzerna 203 Orange Pad
    Menzerna 106FF Green Pad
    Blackfire Wet Diamond Sealant Blue Pad
    Collinites No. 845 Insulator Wax Blue Pad
    Poor Boys Wheel Sealant/Collinites No. 845 Wax on wheels.

    The paint damage under the halogens, you can clearly see the horrible holograms/buffer trails.

    You can clearly see the extent of the paint damage in the above pictures, so I focused a lot on the 50/50 photos and the difference is beyond clear. Starting with the trunk.
