BMW 1M - Paint Correction/Sonax PNS

We got this car in from a customer that just didn't have the time to maintain this BMW 1M daily driver.

Customer wanted to get it cleaned up and ready for storage. He will be using another car for the winter months.

Take a look at the steps we took to get it back into shape.
