Seasons greeting to you all.
Long time since my last post so thought I would put this recent detail on.
The car in question is a Porsche 911 (997 gen2) C4S Cabriolet in Basalt Black. My client recently acquired the car and wanted it tidied up a bit as the previous owners hadn’t kept it to the same standard he likes.
So on we go, first, some pictures of the car on arrival:-

Image

Image

Image

Front end badly stone chipped…
Image

Image

Image


Exhausts looking……dirty!!
Image

Some interior shots….
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Leather looking grimy..
Image
And back outside…
Image
Engine bay..
Image
Front compartment..
Image
Image
Rear spoiler…
Image
So I started with the wheels. First, they were soaked with Bilberry Wheel cleaner…which was then blasted off with the pressure washer..
Image
Then washed…
Image
Various brushes and mits used..
Image
And the dried to leave this..
Image
Engine bay cleaned..
Image
And rinsed…
Image
And dried…
Image
Next up the interior…
Image
Image
Image
50:50 on the bolster…
Image
Carpets cleaned..
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Now on to the exterior.
First the car was rinsed to remove loose dirt.
Image
Then foamed so that the panel gaps and hard to reach placed could be cleaned..
Image
Image
Image
Image
Next the roof was cleaned…
Image
Image
Next the car was washed. Autofinesse Lather, plush mit and two buckets..
Image
Image
And rinsed..
Image

Then decontaminated..
Image
And then clayed..
Image
Car was then rinsed and dried to leave this finish..
Image
Image
Paintwork assessed..
Image
Image
Image
Usual collection of swirls and some deeper scratches. After testing a number of combos I finally settled on Scholl S17 on a blue pad and then S40 on an orange pad to finish.
Some 50:50s as I worked around the car…
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Before..
Image
After..
Image
Some scratches..
Image
And after..
Image

Before..
Image
After..
Image
Before..
Image
Image
Engine bay dressed..
Image
Exhausts cleaned..
Image
After polishing..
Image
Stone chips touched in and flatted back..
Image
And polished..
Image
Wax of choice…Autofinesse Spirit..
Image

Rubber treated..

Interior finished..

Very nice work :D

The conditions and the amount of daylight available must have impeded you in so many ways, but you really overcame them.

Does the car owner want you to come back in the summer and perform a full 3 stage correction and proof the ragtop?
