Looks awesome. I'm going to attempt to polish and wax my car this weekend. I've got a few questions.

1. Why did you use the masking tape? What needed it?

2. When you did the clay did you use a spray or just use the water from when you washed it?

I'm just wondering because I was at the Long Beach Grand Prix last weekend and the guy working at Mother's said it's best to use their spray. But then my other friend said just clay while you are washing the car off.

masking is used to prevent burning edges and trim.

Another great job! Does anyone know the name of this color? I want to say it's either Mystic Blue or Orient Blue but I'm not sure.

you are right though its a metallic flake blue, but BMW calls it carbon black like back in the day carbon paper hence carbon black.
