911fanatic vs 600hp 996

I received a call from a gentleman about a month ago to come out and detail two Porsches for him. We agreed that a protection detail with a single stage polish would get the job done for the first one. Remember what happened the last time I quoted a Porsche sight unseen? Anyhow, its a 2 hour drive to his house so I enlisted the help of forum member t-dawg (Terence) so we could get it done in a day. A long day, but only one. Turned out to be a good decision to bring him. The car was covered with rather deep scratches. Due to the colour it was impossible to capture any on film. Sorry At the end of the day it was all worth it as Terence and I could not believe the wetness in the paint. So far I am very impressed with the Scholl polishes and Gloss-it LSPs.

All jambs etc cleaned with AG Powermax3
Washed with Poorboys SuperSlick n'Suds
Inner fenders and tires cleaned with AG Powermax3
Wheels cleaned with Bilberry Wheel Cleaner
Clayed with ClayMagic Blue
Polished with a variety of pads including LC CCS, Gloss-it and 3M
Polishes were Menz Power Finish/85RD and Scholl S03+/S40
LSP was Gloss-it Gloss Finish x1 and Concorso Gloss x1
Tires dresses with Gloss-it Tire Dressing

Total time today - 20 hours

Worlds fastest banana!!






Door jambs were full of overspray from recent repaint


Fuel filler door full of overspray as well. AGHHHHHHH!!!




Some very dirty HREs


Me having my way with the wheels via Bilberry wheel cleaner and $$ brushes.




50/50 of roof. You can see the difference between the two sides.


Terence polishing out some of the rather deep scratches the car had somehow acquired.


Tail light before...


and after. There was a big difference. I just can't take pictures. LOL




Luckily the seat cushions were only held in with velcro so we could get at all the nibblies underneath. Client asked if we wanted the seats removed. We declined. We realized later why he asked. Racing buckets don't fold forward. Ever try to get into a P-car back seat?




Terence hard at whatever it was he was doing here.


All jambs were very dirty. Terence had to use Power Gloss on a MF to get rid of this.


Why am I holding the guage trim rings? Don't ask.


600 hp. All hoses and plastics dressed with 303.










Nice reflection shot.












Calipers got some Gloss Finish as well.








Nicely finished interior. Seats were dressed with Duragloss Leather Conditioner




All sills and jambs were polished and dressed with Werkstat Prime Acrylic












Pedals were cleaned to like new






Exhaust tips were polished with Duragloss Metal Polish




Polished lips on wheels recieved Duraloss Metal Polish as well
















At the end of the day I had learned a few new things. The Scholl polishes and Gloss-it LSP are awesome. If someone asks if you want the seats removed, ask why. Terence is an awesome detailer :thumb: and will be joining me on a few more upcoming outings. Look for a 50th Anniversary Corvette and BMW M5.
