After 2 days of paint prep and getting yelled at by the'm exhausted.

I'm also forced into a 3 day process as my car is outside. The garage is too crowed to work in. Tenant's remodeling junk and his late 60's buick is in there.

It's outside.
I have to hand wash the car each day.

So far I've:
Cleaned/polished/sealed the wheels (poor boys wheel sealant) - got this in the mail tuesday
Clayed the entire car (mild poor boys clay).
Zymol HD Cleanse paint cleaner (polish).
Convertible top cleaning/protectant (applyed/cleaned with horsehair brush).
Mixed/applied blue water metallic touch up paint (inner rocker panel).
Cleaned gas cap area.

Lots to do still. The concours is Saturday.
Have about 7 hours to get it all done (based on my available "free time" )

My dad is coming over in his VO 1M tho to steal some of my pro detail towels (I have more than anyone in my family & each one of them is a BMW CCA member).
I'll be sure to take plenty of photos of our cars along with my mom's E88 @ the concours.

current detail photos coming...
1988 325i sedan (Cirrus Blue Metallic, Silver Grey Leather)
2011 128i convertible (Blue Water Metallic, Grey Leather)
2013 320i sedan (Sapphire Black Metallic, Black/Black)
2016 228i convertible (Mineral White, Oyster Leather, Luxury Line)
