E46 M3 Correction and enhancement Part One

Recommended Posts

Good Day All!

 

Following being away on Paternity leave and having zero time to update this forum or polish cars I thought i'd offer up the following up for your viewing pleasure:

 

One rather dirty and until recently unloved E46 M3, the new owner informed me a couple of weeks ago that the paintwork was a tad rough and required correction, He was not wrong!

The condition of the roof sum the car up prior to correction, flat lifeless and patches of dead clear coat:

But nothing that couldn't be cured
