Larry starts the cleaning process with a brute wheel soap and boost winter wash formula that soaks the heavy grime on the paint. A high-pH solution and a brush are used for the door jambs, grilles, and emblems. The moldy engine bay also gets a little attention in the guise of foam and pressure washing, then Larry soaks the paint again. After going over the German roadster with a microfiber towel, the Alpina-tuned Z8 is rinsed and dried.
Detailing further includes the undercarriage, suspension, brake rotors, wheel wells, and five triple-spoke wheels. These being done, Larry moves to claying and polishing the paintwork before touching up the rock chips with a needle and syringe. And finally, the spruced-up BMW Z8 Alpina gets a couple of layers of enamel coating to boost the depth and shine of the paint.
As for the interior, polishing the gloss-black trim pieces comes first. Larry and his crew then vacuum the car, use a leather cleaner for the upholstery, scrape off the window stickers, and clean the greenhouse. Needless to say, the very collectible roadster looks a lot better after so much work.
