Porsche dual stage and full coatings

Another week another little sports car made good.

First job for this car was to peel off the old ppf. this was very old tech, and the old fashioned half bonnet style. But as it covered the front and all the little bits it did its job

Next it got the usual wash and decon routine, and was dried with compressed air ready for work

Once in the lights, I started by addressing the trim. Years of horrid chemicals and rubbish trim products had took its toll. I cleaned them up with heavy solvents to restore a factory look

Next I taped up said trims to protect them from damage during machining

After this, I stripped off the wiper arms to allow better access when polishing and coating the plastics

Next we are onto wheels, they were cleaned from front to back and decontaminated to return a factory finish ready for coating

Whilst the wheels were off the undercarriage was cleaned up with steal and some chemicals, and coated ready for wheels fitment

Next it was machining, and the years had truly taken its toll

The whole car was then refined to remove any holograms or marring I had induced

Then after a wipe down it was coated with SEI 3031

The glass was machined and then coated all around

Trims were coated (typical Porsche trim finish)

Then after the interior was dealt with, its time for some finished shots under various lighting

Great job, can I ask what products you used to clean the trim please?

Lovely work Matt, it's come up a treat

What did you use on the window trims, I have my Porsche to do again at the weekend, and I have success to a certain extent with the rubber trims but the finish doesn't last.

Is solvent the best way to clean it up well, I used Surfex APC last time and treated with AF Revive

They have always been cleaned prior during the wash stage with brushes and apc, but solvent is the way. Or even very strong apc, spray on a cloth and rub. Keep going though it wont just happen

Thanks for that. I've one part of my rubber trim that looks really bad. I've cleaned it with dilluted APC but will try a stronger mix or neat and give it a go for longer next time when I do a full strip down. Will probably be spring next year as I've already done my winter prep'.

Looks great Matt, top work. Shame about the brake discs being orange but with protected wheels, it should come off them easy enough.
