Porsche 997 correctional detail by Beau Technique.

Post by scottbt » Fri Mar 25, 2011 6:20 pm

Thanks once again for viewing yet another write up by Beau Technique

Monday seen me tackling day one of two days commitment on this nice solid black Porsche 997 carrera S. When first initial viewing was undertaken, the day was gloomy and had to inspect the vehicle indoors. It seemed in need of some love but wasn’t horrendous though slight clearcoat peeling near the rear quarter protective film would cause a slight issue. Paint readings were slightly scatty and the car had obviously seen some paintwork in its life but nothing that could stop it being improved. A two day correctional detail with interior and engine tidy up was arranged and agreed on. Wheels were fully refurbed by wheelworx prior to detail. The car upon arrival on Monday...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

The usual preparation was undertaken with Valetpro car wash concentrate. Autosmart G101. Autosmart smartwheels. Valetpro brushes and soft hair brushes. Foamed with Dodo Juice tfr test subject.

Image
Image
Image
Image

Some level of protection ( little but still ) still remaining...

Image

Tar removed with Autosmart tardis. Clayed using Dodo Juice supernatural clay and born slippy as lube which leaves the car looking like this after final rinse...

Image

Definately little if anything remaining to the paints finish so Dryed with waffle towels and warm air dryer then into the garage and taped up ready for some fun under the lights...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Arrrrgh! Holy cow batman. This poor Porsche needed some SERIOUS love to get it back to its former glory. Measurements were as already explained prior, scatty but not major...

Image

Image

I knew there was no time to waste and some heavier cutting was called for before I could get any remote life pressed back to this Porsches paint. Farecla wool pads and Scholl concepts S17+ 2-3 sets prior to polishing with 3M yellow pad and again Scholl S17+. Final set was 3M blue finishing pad with Nanotech nano polish super gloss. The results were very nice and crisp...

Image
Image

Lights off and some awesome reflections...

Image

Image

Carrying on. The protective film usually situated near the lower rear quarter was intact though slightly peppered but in front of that was the dreaded clearcoat peel...

Image

This was addressed carefully at a later date by hand. The upper quarter...

And after...

Image

Pillars seen some attention and came up nicely...

Drivers door before...

Roof before...

Image

And after...

Image

None of the wing but you get the idea and what was entailed to get the desired results. Bonnet was tricky as I was a slight touch heavy handed when claying ( my bad ) though the paintwork in general was quite bad along with the clay marring so why not make hard work for yourself ( DOH! )...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

After some much hard work...

Image

Image

Image

Bizarrely, I started working on the rear end next ( why I don’t know ) and the rear bumper was a real tough cookie to get a reasonable level of correction but never the less, it was vastly improved...

Image
Image

After one section, not all complete...

Image

Image

I left the tailgate being vented and moved straight onto the passenger rear quarter. Here is what I was greated with on side two...

Image

Image

Image

A warm greeting indeed. I was adamant that I would get this complete before the first day ended and with much gusto, the end results looked fantastic...

Image

Image

Slight RDS remained in certain areas but a huge improvement for sure and a hard first day complete.

Tuesday, day two of two days. Today seen Geoff tag along for the interior work and aid in the niddly bits whilst I cracked on with the brunt of the paintwork correction. Front bumper...

Image

After...

Image

And so on. Once all correction work was complete. Geoff had been at full throttle with the interior and was completed timely enough to aid me in the dust of and re-wash to get rid of all polishing dust in all the knooks and crannies which was most certainly needed...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Vehicle was snowfoamed with Autobrite direct supa snowfoam. Left to dwell then rinsed extremely thoroughly to ensure all the dust and polish was removed from the tricky little areas. Dried using Uber towels, Meguiars last touch detailer and a final blow dry to get all water out of relevant gaps. At this point, I thought it rde to not take some direct sun shots...

Image

Image

As Jamie Oliver says, Pukka!

Hand glazed with Chemical guys EZ crème glaze. Trims with Valetpro yellow gel. Arches tyres and engine with Finish kare topkote anti static dressing. Glass cleaned with Meguiars glass cleaner and sealed with Permanon glass sealant. Exhausts with Meguiars NXT metal polish and 00 wire wool. Wheels sealed with Smartwax rimwax. 2 coats of Swissvax onynx for LSP. Now back to the interior that Geoff had done such a sterling job of...

Nice finish on the porsche (porsche panels are nice to work on and a great finish), See the wool pad came out to correct.

Cheers all. It was a tad tired to say the least. Yes wool pads come out quite frequently and work well on this level of finish to get it right before polishing and finishing. Enjoyable car and very rewarding to see the production and end results.
