Interior - Before








Clean up years of dirt, grime, and dead skin off the steering wheel




A nice improvement


Interior afters



Exterior before shots

























The Fenix TK35 was extremely helpful detecting paint imperfections


Prep - Clear film removal/Wheels/Tires/Decon/Autoscrub/Wash

Clear film was on the car since 2001 - it needed to be removed, it's job was done. (we used 7 cans of 3m adhesive remover on this job!)








Sonax Full Effect used to clean up the wheels



All Purpose used on the tires


Some agitation with a brush and we are pulling some dirt/grime/brake dust off the tires


Wheel wells getting hit with APC



Rinse



Wolf's Decon Gel


After we rinsed down the Decon Gel we moved on to pre soak with snow foam




Car was washed traditionally - 2 bucket method and we move on to NanoSkin Autoscrub


After the wash here is what the car looked like it almost appears if the car was sand blasted with zero gloss!


if you look closely you will see some marring left by the NanoSkin Autoscrub - Porsche paint = soft




Correction process - before/afters and 50/50 shots




50/50 of the front bumper



Close up


50/50 door shot


more 50/50 shots


50/50 of the rear brakelight


close up


rear taillights polished out to zero imperfections


closer shot


the hood was in bad shape, this car is tracked




Taxi cab paint transfer


Improvement after FG400 and Rupes BigFoot


Rupes BigFoot action shot


Rinse and blow dry with the Metro Air Force Blaster 8 hp



After compound and polishing
A nice improvement over what we started wtih




Sonax Polymer NetShield used as a last step


Finishing touches
Before shot of the lip spoiler


After - using Pre Wow followed by Black Wow


Matted down


50/50 shot of the wipe blade - used Sonax Polymer NetShield


50/50 of the cowl - using Pre Wow followed by Black Wow


Close Up


Before shot of bumperettes


After


Matted down


Engine cleaned up and dressed with Adam's In and Out - a go to for engine dressing.


Afters




















We finally got some sun shots before the next down pour






Just a recap
