This unique Green Porsche 911 Carrera came to us requesting bit of a 'spruce up' to bring her back to life. The car was always cared for, but in normal circumstances usually via a hand car wash and/or with the wrong techniques.

Products used were the usual Menzerna FG500 (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/products/menzerna)with the RUPES Rotary Polisher (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/rupes/rotary_polisher_lh18en) and Menzerna Wool Pad (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/menzerna/pad_lambswool_cutting), also the DAS6 Pro + Surbuf Pads (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/surbuf/microfibre_buffing_pads_55) & Menzerna FG500 for harder to reach areas including 3" combination used, stepped down to Menzerna PF2500 (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/menzerna/menzerna_power_finish_302_pf2500_250ml_size) and again to Menzerna SF4000 (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/menzerna/sampler_kit) to really bring out the maximum amount of gloss and clarity from the paintwork.


As you can see below; marring, holograms and imperfections were obvious throughout all the paintwork which in turn hides this beautiful metallic in the green from coming out leaving a very 'dull' finish to a very nice Porsche!

Even the tail lights had evident swirls/spider webbing over them

Definitely not how a Porsche emblem should be shown!

Few heavier scratches were also found as you can see below on the front guard below the headlight

1Z Einszett ColourTec (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/einszett_1z/colourtec_wheel_cleaner)eating through the Carbon (Brake Dust fall out), bleeding an indication of the carbon cleaning!

CCP's 3 Bucket Combo (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/grit_guard/insert_and_ccp_bucket_triple_combo) used with the soft Microfibre Wash Mitt and Wheel Woolies (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/speciality_brands/wheel_woolies_kit) as well as Vikan Wheel & Arch Brushes (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/vikan/wheel_and_arch_brush)

The Dodo Juice Fine Grade Grey Clay Bar (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/dodo_juice/dodo_clay_and_born_slippy_duo) did pick up quite a bit of contaminants from the paintwork, surprisingly a lot over the bonnet area.

The beautiful metallic and colour slowly returning - as you can see the left shows uncorrected, the right single pass with colour and clarity already evident

The Plastic Trimmings also were quite weathered and required a bit of rejuvenation - of course Nanolex Trim Rejuvenator (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/nanolex/trim_rejuvenator_and_sealant)was the first product that came to mind. Just a couple drops at a time to leave the area looking fresh and new again. Once dry leaving a semi gloss factory like finish as it used to when it was new.

The Porsche's paintwork was finished with Wolfs Chemicals Hard Body (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/wolfs_chemicals/hard_body) for a nice deep, wet finish and Tyres with Duragloss 253 Tyre Dressing (http://www.carcareproducts.com.au/product/duragloss/tyre_and_rubber_dressing) - perfectly suited to this Porsche to finish off!

Thanks for taking the time to look!
