    Detailing is like playing music.. the more you practice, the better you become at it.

    Superior Shine- I'm a noob around here, but I am always blown away at your results!

    Whenever I see a black car you have worked on, it makes me wish I had gotten a black SRT-4 instead of yellow. Keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing.

    Terrific work Joe! You are a true professional! I've done some rotary swirl removal too, courtesy of Moritz BMW in Arlington near me....so much so that I warn all my regulars to make sure they specify the make ready guys don't touch their new cars. I fail to understand how any dealership (even Kia) would allow such horrible work to go on under their own roof.

    I haven't done any paint correction at the level you did though with color sanding and major buffing steps. Looks like I need to get some body panels when I get a rotary and not only practice how to attain swirl free results but also to work on my wetsanding skills. I took some paint and body classes years ago, but it has been too long for me to have enough confidence to go wild on a customer's car yet.

    Joe-forgot to ask. I know the 745s do have some orange peel issues. When you wetsanded just in spots, was it just enough to remove the defects or did it remove orange peel as well? On a car with bad orange peel, I would think spot wetsanding might be noticable...ie, orange peel free areas amid a sea of orange peel.

    Comments?

    This BMW didnt have bad orange peel.

    If it would have, you can sand out the defect then widen the area your sanding to kind of blend the smoothness into the orange peel so it isnt noticable.

    This post was my very first write up. I hosted the pics on my old web-site. When I changed web-site all the pics were erased.

    This has to be one of the worlds oldest write ups!! Sorry the pics are long gone. I was inspired by Mike Phillips after he did what I consider the first detailing write up ever. I will claim 2nd person to do a write up. Write ups have come a long way since 2004.
