BMW 1-Series M-Sport
A bit of travelling involved in this one – A BMW 1-Series and a Merc SL600 AMG.. Cutting a long story short, the BM took a lot longer than expected and left little time to start on the Merc. ~10 hours went into the 1-Series, 8 on the first day, and, 2 hours in the morning of the second day. The rest of this day was spent on Interiors; a Range Rover Vogue TDV8, and, a JEEP Cherokee (estate ‘work horse’).
I didn't enjoy this one - one of them days maybe? The owner was very pleased, but, after x-amounts of unexpected events, (wind/cold/rain and the dogs that kept running off with my kit!!), I didn't get on well at all.

I was lucky to even make it in the first place – I drove passed the entrance and ended up on a rather rutted, rooked and bumpy decent. Silly really, “no SL600 AMG is going to live down here!!” Once at the bottom and with enough room to spin round, I make the phone-call and speak to the owner. He couldn’t believe I’d make it down there, and, “would be very surprised if I made it back up!” heh! All I have to say is, HAIL THE MIGHTY QUATTRO. A fun start to the day, lets put it that way.

So, day 1, inspection photos:
Now at this point, let me introduce you to the dogs.
Sky and Kite, Alaskan Malamute’s. Lovely, lovely dogs.
First job were the sills and shuts (usually wheels, but, these would be coming off a little later so made haste elsewhere..)
Foam delivered and lots of additional APC/cleaning was done on the window rubbers, petrol filler housing, crevices and ‘crack’s.
Vehicle re-foamed for an ultra-slick wash, and, washed with Dodo Juice BTBM and a Meguiars Lambswool Washmit.
Sonus Green picking up the usual surface contaminants:
The owner came along to help jack the car up and remove the wheels... At the same time, I was asked to clean and protect the Merc’s winter wheels.
