Before - we received the new BMW in salty shape - believe it or not this was 7 miles of driving in salt to our shop!




















Prep - wheels, wheel wells, tires, decon, clay

Adam's APC was used to clean up the tires as well we used Adam's All Purpose Cleaner to loosen up the salt and grime in the wheels wells. Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner sprayed on wheels, once they set up, we make sure to use various brushes to ensure wheels are cleaned up well.







Since we knew the car was on a boat for 3 months and sat in a lot for a few more we knew that there would be contaminants on the paint, we applied Auto Finesse Iron Out to assist in the decon stage, we did this prior to the wash and clay.




Rinse and repeat - we saw more contaminants on the paint so we decided to repeat the process - still pulling fall out off the paint.
