Detailed the X5. Menzerna and Duragloss

I did this today. Saw how good Menzerna's PO106FF has been leaving a lot of my details lately, that it just wouldn't be fair to not use it on my own car. So I washed it quickly this morning and hit the whole thing with
Menzerna PO106FF Micro Polish via Finishing pad @ 1500rpms.

This is one weird polish. It cuts a lot lot more than any finishing polish I have used but finishes better than Final Polish II, and on top of all that, has NO fillers to hide halograms, swirls, ect. What you see is what you get. Unlike many detailers who polish using filling products that after 2-3 washes, comes off and reveals w/e exhisting damage was there or put on the car.

So anyways, I applied Duragloss' Bonding Agent prior to their sealant #111. This is the awesome outcome.










AND ONE FOR THE CHAMPS!

A fly landed on the hood of your X and broke his leg because he slides of the hood and hit the ground breaking his leg.

there's a lot of orange peel on that fender if that picture is actually showing true... you need to get the clear coat wet sanded to level that off. Usually that's a problem with GM paint, i've never seen it on a BMW before. (is it a reflection maybe?)

all of my bmw's have huge amounts of orange peel...

because joyride was able to get a true shine from a properly prepped surface, you can see the real defects in the original paint.

i love the menzerna stuff too.. really one of the best out there...

great job joyride!

I'm really loving the menxerna polishes...


The orangepeel is typical... The majority of the car is fine, but some areas are just crazy... But its also something Ive seen on all my prior bmws.
