Detailed - 2005 Phoenix Yellow M3 Coupe
Spent a good day and a half detailing the car...took Friday off to have a
relaxing day cleaning it up from top to bottom. Just changed jobs and had kid #2 so I needed a good day to myself.
Paint was in pretty good shape - still learning how to use the PC and polish so I stayed with something less abrasive that didn't quite get everything, but still looks very good, at least by my standards. I'm sure it is not close to what the pros here would do, but a relaxing day and the car looks very good.
Leather clean and condition - Zaino Z9 and Z10
engine - p21s total auto wash, 303 aerospace
Wheels - Sonax wheel cleaner (great stuff!) and Z16 tire gloss
tailpipes - p21s finish restorer

Wash - P21s shampoo, foam gun (P21s doesn't seem to foam much, but will use up what I still have)
