Porsche 911 Carrera S Correction Detail

12/10/12

During one of our recent open days a customer arrived in their Porsche to ask if we could clean and prep a set of wheels they wanted to fit to it. Whilst the customer was waiting to see us they seen some of our demos and products and decided to book the car in as well.

The Porsche was booked in for a full correction whilst the wheels went away to get refurbished. Ready to put on after the winter.

APC wash to remove the bugs and road grime.

Then the wheels. They were fairly easy to clean just full of tar which we will get later.

On with AMDetails Snow Foam.

Then it was the 2 bucket method. Tar removal ,fall out removal and Clay bar session before pulling inside to assess the damaged

We then tried to improve the camera skills and focus on the ‘Ping’ we were achieving on the stunning cobalt blue.

It’s harder than it looks. Some more 50/50 action

Over all very happy with the correction. Which leaves us to the afters.
