Had the pleasure of doing this fantastic car a few days ago so thought I would do a little write up to go with the pics.

So here is the car on arrival...

Image

Looking very nice!

In really good condition, just a little dirt in the hard to reach areas..

Image

The usual bug squadron at this time of year...

Image

A little light swirling...

Image

So onwards and as per usual, I started with the wheels..

...which weren't too bad..

Image

Then given a spray of Bilberry Wheel Cleaner...

Image

Then washed with various brushes and an old mit....

Image

Image

And finally treated to Autofinesse Oblitarate to get rid of some tar spots..

Image

To leave this..

Image

Next the interior...not too bad before...

Image

It was vacuumed and the interior given a wipe down...

Image

Image

On to the outside, and the front and lower third is given a spray of Autofinesse Citrus Power...

Image

The car was then foamed.....

Image

...allowing the intricate details to be taken care of...

Image

Next, the car was washed with Autofinesse lather..not too many pics as it was hot and I had to move fast....

Image

The car was then decontaminated for Tar, Iron deposits and the clayed...

A test area was taped off, various pads and polishes tried until I settled on Sonax Perfect Finish on a 3M polishing pad...

Image

Next the rest of the car was taped for polishing..

Image

After polishing the car was wiped down with Car Pro Eraser..

Image

Front compartment cleaned and windscreen scuttle treated to 303 Aerospace...

Image

The car was finished with Autofinesse Spirit...

Image

Wheels waxed and glass polished....and here is the finished car...

Image

Thanks for looking

Looking very tidy now. Nice job.

How many hours was that detail if you don't mind me asking?

Sweet. Do like Porsche 911's. Looks like Sonax perfect finish is going to be a popular polish. I love the stuff.

I bet :shock: that's a massive amount of work for one day. =D>

You must have less fat on you than Bruce Lee. I bet it was one hell of a work out.

In a day!!! Did you miss lunch or was it bite, polish (while chewing), bite, polish etc?

On a more serious note did you tape over the yellow Porsche decals?
