Porsche 993 s4 detailed
Posted 23 February 2008 - 10:52 AM
As you can see its a Porsche 911 s4. It had not been used for a couple of months, so the owner asked us to do the best we can.
Let's crack it on:D
I always start by spraying the wheel arches with some APC 1:4, and HD rinse it after some minutes
That done we start on the rims. Unfortunately the rims are not in a good shape, the inner coating is failing on some parts, for example on the places where the balancing weights have been.
Spraying some WB to the wheel
let it work in for a short time, and use some wheel brushes to clean the inside, which leaves this:
After HD rinsing?
Same for the front-left one
Before going to the washing stage we make sure all door, hood, and trunk trims are clean. Sprayed with APC and worked around it with multible "kwasten" (don't know the word, im sorry:$)
That done we can start having some fun:D. I made a short movie of me snowfoaming the car:

Left it for 5 minutes
A second foam (Johan wanted to foam it 2, why not:P)
After HD rinsing the snowfoam of
After that we washed the car with the 2-bucket system, and dried it with a water magnet
Time to get the car in. While Johan was claying the car I started on the exhaust tips. What a work, this tip cost me 45 minutes and i still dont think it's 100 percent:(
Tried some APC which didnt seem to help:(
This handy thing did the trick better
90% clean at this stage, so i added some NXT polish to see how it would look:
One to go...
This evening a had a look. Johan had done some machine polishing on the left side of the car. The paint isn't 2 bad, just some little swirling and random RDS.
After 2 passes of M83 on a W8006 which didnt seem to do much and 1 pass of M83 on a W7006 (by G220) it looked like this (note that the tape i used at te before picture left some residu that can be seen on the pic below. The second one is after making sure all of it was gone)
And some of the Left side (1 pass M83 + w8006 following by 1 pass M80 + W8006)
One question: What would you guys do about the stone chip protection which can be soon on the 4th picture?
This Sunday we hope to finish the car. I will update it soon:)
Thanks for looking and wish me luck:P

That or most any plastic polish should work.
