Porsche 993 Carrera restoration detail…

This is one detailing project I’ve been wanting to get my hands on for awhile now…an air-cooled Porsche, in dark-ish colour with a badly maintained paintwork (oh what joy!!!). So when my client brought his 993 Carrera in and asked if I could bring some life back to it’s badly oxidised and swirled out paintwork, I knew just what needed to be done and a 3-days Full Paintwork Correction Signature Detail were swiftly agreed upon.

Because of awkward scheduling, sadly no before picture were taken but this is what’s found all over every panel of the car…

Bad oxidation, heavy deep swirls, industrial overspray...

..see what I mean?

Some before and after pics…

This is easily some 10 years worth of oxidation being removed from a 1 foot square of paintwork onto a new polishing pad

Layers upon layers of built up contamination being carefully polished out

All emblems, door seals & the metal sunroof being removed in order to gain better access to those hard to reach areas…

A couple more pics…

This is what it should look like on a perfectly polished panels..

Insane gloss & deep colour definition can be achieved if you know what you’re doing

...sweet glow from all corners

We are setting our high standard by which all our clients has come to expect, hence this is far from an easy detail by any means, and a couple of late nights were needed to meet the intended schedule! But after seeing the results and the owner’s reaction when he first saw the transformation we did to his car it makes it worthwhile after all…now I can dream of a 993 Turbo or even a 911 GT2 “Badboy” rolling into my garage someday…*hehe*
