Polishing a F-ed Up BMW E90

Polishing 50/50

Just the other day a customer came to our retail store to inquire about some detailing products for his beemer. I was shocked when I saw the car car’s condition. The paint job was bad, heavy orange peel and the car seemed to be scuffed for what reasons, I don’t know!

The owner of this BMW E90, wanted to get some products to rectify the problem. So I asked him to move the car in and I would like to demonstrate what our products can do for him.

And the demo goes like this:

In summary what was done were

Step 1: Perfect 50 + Denim Leveling Foam + Rotary Polisher @ 1700rpms (To remove orange peel and deep scratches. But it left behind some buffer swirls)

Step 2: Nao Compound 46 + Purple Foamed Wool + Rotary Polisher @ 1500rpms (Swilrs were removed with this step. And now all that’s left behind is holograms)

Step 3: Nao Polish 36 + Black Finishing Foam + Rotary Polisher @ 1500rpms (Holograms were removed effortlessly)
