    Porsche 997 Turbo Basalt Black Crystal Rock.

    Well i had my mates porky for the day sunday after a fun night out saturday night in London. Ice Bar rocks .Car was fantastic and the best colour in my opinion Basalt black. The car had been specced with black leather and yellow stitching with yellow guages and yellow seat belts to compliment the yellow ceramic brakes he specced.

    Wow does this beast fly

    Anyway the Porky









    Lower half of the car sprayed with citrus degreaser including arches and undercarriage.





    Wheels then doused in p21s wheel cleaner and worked in



    cleaned with various brushes



    and callipers










    Car then washed with swissvax car bath and zymooooooool sponge





    Car then sprayed off




    and clayed with Dodo Juice Born to be slippy and sonus green clay bar






    and all glass and headlights



    car then fully rewashed and sprayed with Last touch and dryed with Aquatouch. I would have used my supernatural drying towel but it was in the wash.




    Car was then inspected for imperfections of which there were none apart from a sticky bit hanging out of the tyre sticker which drove me mad and i couldnt get off.

    Car measured up lowest point



    and highest point



    The car was then taped up and visible swirls were very very small.

    Decided to try simply fx2 pad and 80349 which removed minor swirls








    and then went over with ultrafina and 3m waffle. Must admit i did notice only a massive difference on the flake.








    Next the whole car was cleaned and oiled up nicely with hd-cleanse such a great product on black metallics.






    and wiped off instantly




    leaves a beautiful finish with oily features and a real wetness






    Wax woped on today Crystal Rock to compliment the car




    I decided to have some fun with the car so i decided to hand wax today , i havent hand waxed in ages so fancied a play





    Everybody hand waxes differently but i like the herringbone approach simply because i know every section of the panel has atleast been covered 2 to 3 times with the action and design of the wax on the panel. It ensures even coverage for me but is time consuming. It does knacker me out though..

    Wheels also waxed inside and out but by pad as i didnt want to gash my hands open with the discs and disc surrounds




    callipers also done



    arches done with Adams undercarriage spray



    Glass cleaned with megs glass clean



    Exhaust autosoled and underside after the detail Adamsed aswell.

    Wax left for about 20 minutes and buffed off including wheels and callipers , door shuts , under bonnet , boot etc



    All rubber seals and vinyl , plastic treated to Aerospace 303 uv protection and feed



    Nice £300 optional extra lit up logo




    Engine bay also waxed and treated







    Interior cleaned out and treated to Zymoooooool Treat and Vinyl







    Now this always goes dark but drys back to a nice finish , engine run for 10 minutes with heaters on and lamps to warm interior to open pores of leather





    Then left and buffed up when soaked in.





    Everything recleaned and checked.







    Car then zaino z8,ed



    and buffed off



    Final Results




























    Heavenly Paintwork is simply Heaven Itself.

    Been looking forward to this Marc. Cracking results mate. Love the yellow stitching and seatbelts. But £300 for illuminated badges, is he mental?? I could have rigged that up for him for 4 cans of Badger Tanglefoot!

    Marc, you work is always an inspiration and I learn a fair bit from your details.

    It's your's and race valeting posts on here that helped me fall in love with detailing.

    My colour looks the nicest it has in years and now gets looks all the time due to its shine.

    I love to compare the colour to other silver cars just to see the difference.

    Thanks and keep posting!
