Finally a bright and sunny Saturday morning - perfect for a Detailing 101 Class and perfect for spotting paint defects.


Speaking of paint defects, this 2009 BMW 3 Series had plenty, from swirls and water spots to the dreaded DISO (dealer installed swirl option). That's right, the car was recently purchased as a used vehicle from a dealer who gave the car a quick detail for it's new owner.

As is customary in these classes, we removed the loose contaminants from the surface first and then clayed to remove bonded contaminants.
