We carried out a Surface Protection vehicle detail on this BMW M135i a few weeks ago. Read how the story unfolded....
Although it has been looked after well, the BMW M135i was not in the best of states when it came to us. The car had not been cleaned for a while and was in need of a much needed tidy up.
After discussion was the customer a Surface Protection detail was chosen to keep the vehicle's paint protected for up to 12 months. The longevity is due to the quality of the products that we use and the correct manner and structure that they are applied.
Firstly the bodywork was treated to ValetPro Advanced Snow Foam. With this, the car is blanketed in a cleansing foam as a pre-wash to help soften and remove any loose surface contaminates. It is left to dwell for a few minutes before agitating the hard to reach areas with a soft detailing brush.
The alloy wheels were then decontaminated and deep cleaned with ValetPRO Bilberry Wheel Cleaner, fully washed and rinsed.
After this all of the door shuts and sills were cleaned with citrus degreaser. It was then onto the two bucket wash method. Grit guards, lambs wool wash mitts and a premium shampoo, in this case Swissvax Car Bath was used to ensure a safe wash. It is essetial that the shampoo solution bucket remains free from removed grit and contaminates, this significantly reduces the risk of inflicting light surface scratches.
The next stage was to remove all of the tar deposits. The paint and glass was then fully clayed to remove anything the wash process failed to do. The previous stages safely dissolve and remove larger bonded contaminates, this greatly reduces the risk of picking up a large particle in the clay which could mark the paint. Clay lubricant is used as it’s essential to the performance and safety of clay.
After being wiped down to remove all residue the car was treated to a layer of Soft 99 Fusso before two coats of the brilliant Swissvax Shield. The tyres were then dressed and the alloy wheels waxed with Swissvax Autobahn Wheel Wax. They now look even more shiny than the day they were new whilst also benefiting from being fully protected from brake dust contamination! The glass was then treated to CarChem glass sealant and the final inspection was then carried out. All in all a total of 12 hours was spent on this vehicle detail.Tweet
