NEW 22" KAHNS AND MY X5 DETAILED

I had today off Work, so i thought i would Mop and polish the x5, this is how the day started.

The car was quite dirty.

I was the whole car to remove any dirt and old polish



Here are some pics of the paint work, flat not that shiney ans scratched aswell




Next i masked up the plastic trim and flated the worest areas with 2000 wet and dry paper.






This is what i used

First off i when over the whole car with g3.
Then with a swirl remover. Wiped off the polish

Then i hand polished the whole car


Buffed that off and here are the results.









That is how i spent my day off

Daaaannng! That looks great! Looks like a lot of work! Maybe you should post it in the Detailing forum too ... I think they'd get a kick too! Hahaha!
This IS the detailing forum ... nevermind I'm lost!


I admit I'm too lazy to do that but wouldn't mind paying somebody though!

Great job and great X!

BTW .. are those Nexens? Nevermind, I see that they're Hankooks.

Looks good, Lots of work.... But if I had the day off and nothing pressing, I would do the same.

BTW, hows the X5 ride on those 22's?
