For many automotive lovers, the 2003 "Uber M3" constructed by Craig Lieberman (of Quick and Livid fame) wants no introduction. Run a Google seek for Craig Lieberman's Uber M3 and also you'll discover dozens of articles profiling this over-the-top M3 construct. Initially slated to seem within the third installment within the F & F film collection, its look was canceled after producers selected the "Tokyo Drift" theme.

When the Uber M3's present proprietor cave us a name to take out the swirls from years of unjust injustice as a consequence of improper washing and detailing strategies, we gladly accepted the job. We traveled to CES Motorsports in Monroe, NC to carry out the element, the place the Uber M3 was getting high remedy to an Energetic Autowerks supercharger set up to assist deliver the largely inventory S54 3.2 liter M3 motor as much as the extent to which the remainder of automotive had been handled.

Sufficient concerning the automotive, although. Suffice it to say that is one spectacular machine that actually must be seen in individual to essentially be appreciated! On to the element.

The automotive began out Schwarz (black), however when the Flosman broad physique equipment was put in, they determined to go together with Lamborghini Sweet Blue by utilizing 2 coats of PPG base Lavender, four coats of Metallic Blue, and a pair of coats of clear.

The impact is startling. The colour is so deep and wealthy, it’s a disgrace that it had turn out to be masked by important swirling and water etching. Whereas one won’t count on {that a} repaint would match the hardness of the OEM BMW clear, main kudos has to go to Quigley's Paint for this $ 14,000 paint job, as a result of it was a few of the hardest clear we had ever encountered. It required using a twisted wool pad on areas with water etching and even some westanding on a few of the cussed swirls and light-weight scratches. We usually wouldn’t wetsand an ordinary Premium Element, however Dan simply couldn’t assist himself when driving for perfection in a single specific space!

A basic breakdown of merchandise used and the order wherein they have been carried out is as follows:

  • Inside – After a fast vacuum, the composite surfaces within the inside and trunk have been rented with Duragloss 265 to revive manufacturing unit sheen.
  • Engine – John and the blokes at CES hold a clear store and left us with an engine bay that was reliably clear after the supercharger set up. A wipedown with fast detailer adopted by extra Duragloss 265 Vinyl remedy left it gleaming.
  • Exterior Polish- Beginning out with the gentle minimize Purple System One wool sprucing pad, we shortly found simply how exhausting the PPG Clear was on the Uber M3. We lastly settled on the next steps:
    1. Step One-Wool Pad with System One X3 polish.
    2. Step Two- Edge 2k Purple Delicate Lower wool sprucing pad with System One X3 nanopolish.
    3. Step Three- Edge 2k (reverse aspect) White Waffle foam ending pad with System One X3 nanopolish.
  • ONR Fast Element After a number of hours of perfecting the paint and revealing the insane depth to the gorgeous end on this automotive, the automotive was cleaned up with Fast Element to prep it for LSP.
