BMW E39 540i:
Stage 2 Paint Correction + dK FDT (Fluid Dynamics Teflon)
Throughout its life, it has been pretty neglected and not well taken care of. Luckily enough, BMW (European cars) in general, their paint is on the harder side and they are harder to get paint damages such as mircro marrings, swirl marks, minor scratches and oxidation.
This particular BMW underwent a dual stage paint correction to remove majority of the imperfections and bring the paint back to life.
Firstly, we prep the wheels with TAC System's Iron Zero to effectively removing iron fallouts such as brake dust, following by brushing the wheels with different sizes of wheel woolies.
We uses Ultra Foam to pre-soak the car in snow foam to break down the dirt and grime. We then high pressure rinse the car and then followed by a 2-bucket method with grit guards and Detailing Kingdom's Car Hydra premium car shampoo.
After finishing the hand wash, we then use a clay lube specifically for clay bar treatment to safely clay the car without causing any damage to the paint - removing bonded contaminants. Following by a high pressure rinse the car again. We dried the car with microfibre waffle weave towel (we do not advise using chamois "shammy") to safely dry the car without instilling any swirl marks or scracthes.
After the washing and decontimination stage, we proceed by using 3M Tape to mask all the rubber, trims and seals to prevent any damages to them while doing the decontamination process.
After several attempts to find the right combinations with pads and compounds, we then duplicate the process to the entire car. Restoring its neglected paintwork to a brillant shine.
We used Detailing Kingdom's FDT Coating (Fliud Dynamics Teflon) choice of protection. We are very impressed on how it performs and also it brings up an unbeatable gloss on a old school BMW.
