Jet Black BMW E92 328XI - Major Paint Correction + Opti-Glass 05401

This Jet Black BMW 328XI came in for a Major Paint Correction, Interior Rejuvenation Detail and Opti-Glass Application. The soft Jet Black paint had severe swirl marks throughout the paintwork and required a two-step paint correction. Menzerna Intensive Polish was used on an orange Lake Country buffing pad for the compounding stage and Menzerna PO85RD was used on a grey Lake Country buffing pad for the polishing stage. After 10 hours of compounding and polishing only a few random isolated deep scratches remained in the paint. Overall, I was able to achieve around a 90% level of correction including the RIDS. A total of 19 hours were required to fully detail this BMW 328XI.

Please excuse the Plasti-Dip on fender lip and in the wheel wells. I removed the Plasti-Dip from the fender lip after filming this portion of the video. The Plasti-Dip in the wheel wells would require a wheels off detail to fully remove. Also don’t ever apply masking tape to Plasti-Dipped moldings while buffing the paint. The 3M masking tape removed the black Plasti-Dip from the chrome window trim after being on a matter of hours. I accidentally removed the Plasti-Dip surrounding the windows which is why the window trim was black in the before detail footage and chrome in the after detail footage. If the window trim was not taped off the buffing pad would have surely removed the Plasti-Dip. You learn something new on every detail.
