    1986 Porsche Carrera

    Single stage shenanigans!
    1986 Porsche Carrera (all original)
    111,607 miles
    Guards Red (single stage) black interior
    3.2 liter air cooled engine, 5 speed manual

    This client LOVES his Porsche!!! He drives is frequently and it is really in amazing shape (besides the paint, lol) for its age and mileage…as well as that it is all original!
    The paint had the usual swirls, scratches, factory sanding marks, and scuffs. It was also very hazy and lifeless. It was left outside overnight one time and was parked near some sprinklers. It was covered in water spots. It also had some strange, on the surface, runs, drips, large areas of defects—almost like something was spilled or splashed onto the surface.

    I stacked up a bunch of pads and mf towels and got ready to go to work! It looked like a murder scene in the shop from all the paint transfer onto the pads and towels! LOL
    The shine and gloss were really amped up. Correction was good as well. I wanted to do more of a preservation and gloss amplification than a total correction. This being original paint and all…it can only be original once!!

    It had some signs of paint strike through on some areas and edges from previous work. I didn’t want to risk the finish any more than I had to. The owner has also stated that he is going to keep this forever!



    The details:

    Waterless wash with McKee’s37 N914.
    Clayed with Griot’s medium mitt.
    Dodo Born Slippery was the clay lube.
    Defelsko PTG.
    Scangrip lighting.
    Misc. MF towels.
    Flex 3401.
    Flex XFE15.
    Rupes iBrid.
    Autotriz nano polisher.
    Misc. Foam and MF pads.
    Megs 105.
    Megs 205.
    Menz PO85rd.
    Final wipedown-CarPro Eraser.
    LSP-McKee’s37 High Def Paint Sealant.
    Tire dressing: McKee’s37 high gloss.
    Metal polish: McKee’s37 metal polish.
    Blackfire glass cleaner.
    Metro vacuum.
    Pinnacle leather cleaner and conditioner.
    Adam’s trim coating.
    McKee’s37 wax remover.

    Thanks for reading/looking!

    Thanks Tony! He just picked it up and was blown away!!! Said it looks better than the day he bought it...couldn`t believe how it looked. He told me a story about how he used to go to car shows all the time, and then with his paint issues, he was too embarrassed to attend them anymore! Says he can`t wait to do a Cars & Coffee or show again! I`m so happy right now! The best part about this job!
