Hi guys

I have a BMW Z4M in today for a Mini detail. The owner had an Minor paint correction done prior with me and wants to learn how to properly wash his cars. The Z4M was topped with 1 coat of Dodo supernatural getting ready for the season.

anyways there no before shots...only afters. I hope you enjoy!















Thanks for looking!

How do you recommend washing? 2 bucket method with grit guard? Foam gun? Wash->Clay bar->wax?

Let me know still trying to get the right method.

Minor correction usually involve with a 1 step polishing to remove 50%+ of paint defects. In this case...it was 50% since the clear-coat of this BMW is super hard compared to Subaru paint.

Foam gun: yes 2 buckets and Grit guard: yes

I would pre-soak with Foam gun with soap to loosen all the surface grime. Then high pressure rinse, and begin your wash with quality soap. Then de-tar with Stoner's tarminator and Iron-cut to remove irons particles.

Then a fine clay can be use to remove the rest ( if any ). Then choose an AIO polish like Duragloss 105 for cleaning the paint surface and protection. Top that with your favorite wax. If you're looking to remove paint defects...then more steps are involve.
