Recent Detail: 135 BMW Black Minor Correction Detail

Fall is here, meaning way better temperature to work on this CPO’d 135. New products include Tuf Shine Tire Clearcoat & Meguiars DA Microfiber System.

After polishing with D300/105 Meguiars I found deep etching and minor swirling which meant deeper cutting was needed with Surf Buf, etc. I decided for the recent life of the paint it was better off leaving it at 95%. This paint responds better with depth, reflection & sparkle.
