Thanks for taking the time to view another post from us at Exclusive Car Care. This time we have a 12 year old BMW 540i painted in cosmo black that was in need of some TLC to bring it back to life. This car had many hours of paint correction and detailing to bring it up to a high standard.
Here is a few shots before the work started showing the bad state of this BMW…
All the wheels were in need of refurbing due to corrosion so these were removed.
The wheels had previously been smart repaired and were painted a flat silver which didn’t look very good..
Here is how the wheels were looking after a FULL refurb..
The old shabby centre caps and wheel bolts were replaced to fit in with the newly refurbed wheels and brand new tyres were also fitted…
Wheels protected with Ghrechniq C1 before fitting back onto car…
The calipers and hubs were a eye sore so these were painted silver and some cooper slip applied before fitting the wheels back on..
Wheels fitted and looking good against the freshly painted calipers and hubs
I removed all trim and fittings from the car to make things a bit easier for myself.
Some 50/50’s and “before & afters” during the correction stages
Spoiler removed to allow me to correct the whole boot.
Some deeper scratches remain as they were to deep to safely remove. Car is 12 years old so bound to have some that were too deep to remove!!!
Few bits replaced…
One of the roof rails kept catching my eye throughout the detail due to lack of paint on it so this was removed. The correct colour paint was ordered from Paints 4U and used to touch in the roof rail along with a few stone chips.
Some of the body trim was badly faded, they were restored using CarPro Dlux.
Before & After
This is how the paint was looking after the final stages of machine polishing were complete…
Gtechniq C1 was used to protect the paintwork and G1 for the windscreen
Before and after of the engine bay…
And the end result…
