Chilliwilli's X5 4.6 Full Paint Correction Detail

Okay so last week I had the pleasure of meeting Wil, what a great guy! He is exactly what his handle states Chill

Sorry in advance as it rained for the most of last week. Also I felt bad that by the time Wil came to pick up it was raining.

What's first....we sprayed the wheels down with P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel, next the wheel wells were sprayed with P21S Total Autowash as well the tires where sprayed as well. Bug and tar were presoaked as well with P21S Total Autowash...you get the picture.

We then went on to fill the foam canon with Adam's All Purpose Cleaner knocking out any previous wax, bug and tar and anything else not taken care of by the P21S. The X was rinsed and with the water still on the X we moved on to claying the car, including windows.

After claying we moved on to access the condition of the paint. I moved on to using Menzerna Super Intensive Polish followed by Menzerna PO85RD to finish off the paint correction. The window trim was polished out using Menzerna PO85RD. As a last step I used Swissvax Blau Weiss for the first time and I have to say it made the car pop very nicely.

The interior was cleaned up using the Uber Interior Kit. The metro vac was used to vacuum the carpet and seats. The vents where dusted, and plastics were cleaned up with Einszett Cockpit and Einszett Plastic/Vinyl Cleaner. The leather was cleaned up with Leather Master Strong Cleaner , conditioned with Leather Master Vital and protected with Leather Master Protection.

The final touches:
The plastic trim was taken care of with Black Wow.
Windows were cleaned with Lusso Glass Polish.
Tires where dressed with Swissvax Pneu.
Door Jambs were cleaned up using Einszett Spray Wax (cleans nicely and adds some protection)

Products Used:
Exterior:
Adam's All Purpose Cleaner in the Cam Spray Foam Canon
Adam's Clay Bar and Optimum Instant Detail Spray and Gloss Enhancer for clay lube

HOLY CRAP! Now I know just how great my X would come out... I wish you guys were down here! And I've never seen the gloss black window trims come out that good... I'd might have to try the Menzerna PO85RD sometime soon as mine are water-stained and the regular polished just removed the blueing but leaving the stains...

Trust me you will love Menzerna. I just did the 4 step Menzerna treatment on my X.
Menzerna IP +PO85RD+Finishing Glaze PO115C+ FMJ = Amazing results. Doing a write-up of my detail job. Will post soon.

...Hot damn, she's never looked sexier! The metalic flakes in the paint are much more visible now. Michelle's gonna hate this but i still think black sapphire metallic looks better than jet black I've fallen in love with her all over again...i might just keep her... ...

Great work Phil! It was a pleasure meeting you as well.
