Porsche in for Gtechniq Silver detail with 3 Years Warranty

Porsche 911 Targa – Gtechniq Silver Detail

15/04/2013

Next up to AMDetails – Elgin we have a lovely little Porsche 911 – 997 Targa in for a Gtechniq Silver treatment with some extra attention paid in areas.  Customer had heard of us through a previous BMW M3 customer. The brief was to bring the whole car back to life whilst making the finish easier to maintain. After looking at budget and what was required a Gtechniq Silver Detail + Wheels off Package was selected. Leaving the Porsche a lot glossier and a Gtechniq 3 year warranty. Providing protection to last the harshest of Scottish winters.

We could see the car was going to need some attention to the wheels. Also plenty evidence of previous work being attempted.

So to start a really good soaking in APC to begin the deep cleaning stages for the paintwork.

Then followed the Foam bath.

Wheels were next. Not looking to shabby after the Foam wash? So the car was popped up with our Jack for easier access and washing.

This saves on having to make a huge mess on the unit floor when we come to clean the arches inside later.

With a Gtechniq Silver Detail you get the complimentary engine bay detail.

Tackled with APC and some detailing brushes.

Then on to the door shuts and other intricate areas.

a Couple of hits required. Wheels were quite badly pitted but we got a pretty good result after De iron, Detar and removing the old weight glue.

Then it was on to the Silver detail. Before and after in any particular order.

Just to show that a Silver is an enhancement level detail. Its goal is not to chase everything out but to add gloss and remove the initial swirling / hazing.

Just the last few finishing touches with machining.

Then it was on to Gtechniq coatings and dressing items.

Then left to cure at the back of the unit. Excuse the mess its been under going a renovation since Christmas really. we seem to grow and grow every month and consuming more and more room in the little unit of ours. Plus it helps to show you all its not all crisp clean display areas etc. Detailing is long hours. Limited time and cramped spaces when juggling all the other aspects of business.

Then next day it was final wipe down and brought to the centre of the unit for customer collection.
