Arrow Porsche Turbo, Cayman & Boxster: Gleammachine- Detailer Essex.

All Porsche's below receiving either minor or full paintwork correction details over the course of 4-5 days, both Boxster's received Gyeon Quartz coatings in accordance with the guidelines laid down by the manufacturer, within the accredited detailer scheme, and being Essex sole Gyeon Quartz approved detailer.

Porsche 997 Turbo.

Comparisons all prior to refinement polishing stages.





















Cayman GTS

Paintwork correction carried out to rectify dealer inflicted defects, sorry but only finished results.











Boxster S

My 981 Boxster in Agate Grey was in a decent state when I purchased it from a Porsche dealer. I was however keen to make it look it's absolute best and have a protective coating applied.
I found Rob on the Web and was impressed by his website. I was further impressed by his excellent response to my initial enquiry- great customer service is really important to me and Rob's response gave me confidence.
Rob assessed the car and confirmed it was in good order. recommending his new car protection service with a little extra polishing. He talked me through his protective coating options, and he was very fair in his pricing.
A Saturday completion was forecast and an update the following day before Rob kindly dropped me off at the local train station. The update was received as promised and collection arranged, Rob collected me from the station on the saturday afternoon.
The car looked amazing, super-glossy and Rob explained what he'd done and how to maintain the fabulous condition. I was more than impressed! Rob promised to send me some pictures which he duly did the same day, and they looked awesome, too.

I will be pleased to see Rob again in the future to maintain the excellent finish he achieved, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
First class, thank you Rob!!


Corrective stages being carried out with the Rupes, M101 & MF cutting pads.











Boxster S

Hi Rob, Just wanted to write you a quick testimonial.
In America they use the word ‘awesome’ far too often and totally out of context.

However, I would like to say that my Boxster S certainly looks ‘awesome’ after the 4.5 days of work you have put into it.

When we bought the car from a Porsche dealer (car is 4 years old with 9,000 miles only), we were extremely upset with the standard of paint finish that Porsche were willing to sell the car to us with.

They offered to fix it themselves but I am so glad that we arranged for
Rob Leys of Gleammachine to do the work for us. The results are
absolutely stunning – better than a brand new showroom car in my
opinion.

Now we plan to take our Boxster on many driving tours
so I know we cannot expect to keep this wonderful condition up for ever
– however, when more work needs doing it will be booked straight back
in to Rob at Gleammachine.












Thanks for looking, comments welcomed and appreciated.

It's still used Suspal, just a little less. Trying to preserve it for the detailing museum.

Thanks Scott, yes the solid black Boxster's gloss was immense.

Thanks, unfortunately these pictures were taken for my social media pages, and before pictures are generally limited to a few from my phone these days, but will have to make a more conscious effort for future write-ups.
