  • 2005 Porsche 996 Turbo [Basalt Black]



    Hello once again Detailers! Pat here, it has been a while since I started a thread.

    We had quite a bit of fun detailing this car. It was recently purchased by a Porsche collector who couldn't stand bringing his new car out in the sun which revealed all existing defects.

    The vehicle's paint was wrought with heavy swirls, holograms and marring. A two-stage correction was required, followed by Opti-Coat Pro+. External plastics were also protected with CarPro CQuartz DLux.

    The wheels have not had a thorough clean for years. Heavy usage of acids and alkalines were required to shift the thick layer of baked on brake dust. To allow ease of cleaning for the future, the calipers and wheels were coated with Opti-Coat Pro+ as well.

    As a finishing touch, the exterior was topped with Concours Nova Jet for additional gloss.

    great work pat. Youve just helped its value on the upward spiral. looks like it should
    The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.

              Thank's man! I am confident that the client will also help keep its value, it will never be driven with rain forcasted

                    What kind of products did you end up using to clean inside the wheel barrels?

                      It was a combination and repetition of things.

                      Firstly some alkaline based wheel cleaners to knock as much "loose" grime and dust off - followed by a variation of acidic cleaners with hydrofluoric acid as its active ingredient.

                      If we weren't happy with the results - it was a case of repeating ourselves. It was not light task and we would have liked for more results but there were time constraints.
