911fanatic vs Pooched Porsche - the finale

Client brought this car in on a referral from another client. He purchased the car about 18 months ago and hasn't done anything with it detailing wise since getting it. Didn't look too bad when I quoted it. You all know where this is going. It was to come in for a protection detail with single stage polish. Two days. Anyhow, four days and approximately 32 hours later it rolled out the door.

Engine, jambs and inner fenders cleaned with Autoglym Powermax3
Foamed with AG Powermax3
Washed with Raceglaze Aqua Bathe soap
Tires and wheels cleaned with AG Custom wheel Cleaner and a mild acid to completely clean the backside of the wheels
Interior wiped down with 1Z Cockpit Premium
Leather cleaned and conditioned with Gloss-it
Interior glass cleaned with AG Fast Glass
Exterior glass polished with Rain Science Glass Scrub on white CCS pad/ Flex rotary and finished with Rain Science Glass Cleaner and Repellant
Clayed with Bilt Hamber med Clay
Polished with Menzerna Power Finish on 3M UK Compounding Pad (green) on PC 7424
Finished with Menz PO85RD on Black CCS on PC 7424
Jambs finished with Werkstat Prime Strong
LSP was Zymol Vintage
Wheels polished with Menz Power Finish on 3" Gloss-it yellow pad
Cleaned with Werkstat Prime Strong, prepped with DG601 and finished with DG105 x2
Tires dressed with Gloss-it Tire Gloss x2

Total Time - 32 hours







































































Thanks for looking.

Absolutely amazing. You literally made it look better than new.

Did the customer get a chance to see some of the 50/50 shots and what did he think? (Or is he the type to not be able to appreciate it as we do?)

It seriously takes talent to be that meticulous and patient and you, sir, have that talent.

He really didn't seem to appreciate the job as much as I would have liked but he did take a bunch of cards for his buddies so I guess he liked it. Some people just don't get excited. Another guy happened by and saw the hood and propmtly booked in his Porsche so I guess its all good.

Ken, I really hate you...
Not literally, but I'm jealous of your work.

I wish I had the patience that you do. I dont think I could ever be that meticulous about cleaning and polishing every square inch

Even after my 11 hour detail, my car didnt look that good

Once again, an amazing job!

I had a question on the tail light restoration. Mine are pretty faded sort of like the porche above, how and what products would I need to get it back to give it that new shine. I've tried the Meguiars plastic polish before and it only seems to last a couple of days before it looks dull again.


Thanks.

Is the Meguiars plastic polish abrasive at all? Or is it just for gloss?
You'd probably need a good abrasive polish to cut out all the swirls that are making it look dull

To fix tail lights properly, you'll have to polish them. These were really bad and needed a compound, then a finishing polish.

No, just a lot of AG Powermax3 and elbow grease.

you might want to consider giving your customers a pic of their car with half of it done to show the difference.

I agree!

A little before and after shot would be great. I know I'd want something like that if I was getting my car detailed. It kinda gives off the "wow he was worth the money" feeling

If I had billed him for all the hours it would have topped $1500. Keep in mind that wasn't just a detail but a resurrection. It included 32 hours over 4 days. The wheels were pulled and all suspension components cleaned. The wash time alone was 4.5 hours. All the polishing approached 20 hours. I still could have easily spent another 2 days on it.
