56k Icon KDS Detailing , This could well be the most work KDS will ever carry out on a car!

Hi Guys

Hope everyone is well and getting ready for the summer season ahead.

Warning,

Have you got the next 30-60 minutes free, if the answer is no then come back when you have.
If you have got the spare time then get ready for a very large comprehensive write up , and I hope you enjoy and pick up a few bits and bobs along the way


So are you ready for the next instalment from Kelly @ KDS?

I guess you must be so now let’s go on a journey of Porsche 930 turbo loveliness.

The car is question is owned by the same customer that owns these too



http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=191236



http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=185631



This time the car was bought on a whim and it’s a car that the owner had always said to himself that one day it would be in his collection.
It was bought knowing that it was coming straight to KDS from the sellers residence, after my initial inspection it seem to be that the car would need a lot more work than the paperwork and service history portrayed.
I few phone calls and emails to the customer to let him know the outcome, the reply from the owner was well “now that I have you fixing my cars I don’t worry myself anymore about my car collection , in fact my cars sell better once they have had the KDS magic”
So it was then I set together the KDS team to start on this epic job that ended up taking months to complete to our standards.



So here goes on to the before pics ,



































































































































































































So as you can see it’s a bit sorry for its self and we have not even got onto the paint condition yet.

Had different coloured bulbs in headlights.

I was given a list of jobs to do on the car which had more than 20 separate items well this had grown a lot by the time I got involved.

End of part one

Part two


























































































































Here is the bodywork after wash viewed in direct sunlight.































































The next sections may not be in the correct order of actual work they are more in files of each type of process which makes it easier to process and label , but doe mess up the order of work slightly

Ie the correction work was one of the last things to be done , but is next to be shown.

We would always finish the correction last , OR we would carry out the first stages of correction knowing that it may pick up a tiny bit of marring so leave just the refinement till the last process on the car.



Here are a few correction shots and repaint of rear whale tail grill

































Here are the interior shots during the refurbishment process.
























































And here is the interior after refurb.





































So the end of part two

Part three

Here are the mechanical photos of what I was up against, and how large the task was going to be.







































So onto the customers list and the other items KDS found that need addressing.


Bonnet strut change















Fog light lens change















Start of rust removal







Suspension and brake components











Front brake and wheel bearing strip down



















































Rear wiper removal













Wheel bearing / brakes / driveshaft and under seal section next.

Witness the classic very poor mechanical workmanship in the next sections

The so called full service history means not a lot when its been carried out by cowboys.

Why cant work carried out on vehicles be to at least an acceptable standard is it that hard to ask?

















New and old seal







Nice fitment of old seal










Wheel bearing being pressed in









Checking the bearing is fully home against its matting face.







Bearing all in and greased up ready for seal to be fitted









New brake pads








New brake pipes made up in house







All fitted back together











Driveshaft refurbishment























Car all under sealed











As I said these are not in order so some photos will be out of sink slightly, but with over 200 mechanical photos to run through and the work carried out over a year ago it’s a huge task trying to place them in correct order that makes sense to people viewing

End of part three

Part four

Still with the mechanical work that was carried out on the car.

Heat exchangers to be replaced





Rear suspension strip down.

The owner had said that its been lowered and sits too low for his liking and wanted to put back to standard ride height while we in the refurb process.

These cars have fully adjustable rear suspension straight from the factory

Strip down process.










All of the matting faces where clean up and made a smooth as possible to help with easy adjustment in the future .













One of the adjusting cam bolts



The torsion bars where both marked and placed back evenly , then the swinging arms where also placed on end on torsion bars in exactly same place.

Once the components where all assembled we set the adjustment in the middle settings





The rear brakes had the same treatment as the front here is finished




Rear swinging arms all painted



New rear shocks fitted





Another part of rear suspension being cleaned





Gearbox being cleaned





One of the items on the list was to get the AIR CON working.

So after a quick investigation things where not looking great.

The system had no gas what so ever





The clutch electromagnet wiring was not connected







The clutch its self for the compressor was shot





The housing for the compressor had seen some action in the past too



The decision was taken to remove the compressor completely hand it over to customer to get a replacement, you will notice in the finished photos the compressor is not fitted as I was waiting for the parts to come back.

Here are some underneath photos of the car progressing slowly

















Heat exchangers in , driveshafts in getting better and better











Car now sits at correct ride height





Now it was time for topside of engine bay and a few little bits and bobs to finish off the car.

Intercooler re-paint







Air box re-paint





Grill repaint







Rear lens change with inside clean and new screws










So just when I thought I was getting to the end of this project the owner decided to give me a new surprise in the form of this










So back on the ramp for yet more mechanical work





This task did not go as straight forward as I would of hoped.

The complete exhaust system holds the turbo in whats meant to be the correct postion for evey other item to line up ie oil fed , air pipes and the exhaust.

My years in the car repair trade told me that it was going to be tricky trying to remove the exhaust when its been on there for over 20 years



Here is the exhaust removed



I had to cut most of the exhaust off as nothing would undo , and any nuts that where still the shape that I could actual get some kind of bite on would then just snap the studs instead



The 930 turbos run an external waste gate which would need to be saved back to fit to new system

So this meant removing the old snapped studs and replacing with new ones





Studs cut flush to remove the gasket plate



Plate removed



Then a careful drill out of studs
You will be able to see that the holes that have cracks in I decide to helicoil with solid type helicoil.




New studs in





Then I had to remove the oil feed and return for turbo and another oil feed pipe for oil cooler as part of the exhaust change.

After many attempts to undo the pipe even using heat it did not want to move





I ended up very slowly carefully cutting the nut with small disc cutter to split the nut



New pipe fitted




Then it was onto fitment of exhaust system, which yet again did not fit perfect.



So a bit of alteration





Finally exhaust system fitted













So that’s the mechanical section over and another end to a part four

Right the last section

Part five the finished car

In the sun directly , this clearly shows the level gone to on this car















































































And then for the photos indoors
























































































































So there we have it all finished.



This I hope shows what we can offer at KDS all in one car , (apart from repainting) this car really has had most things car related all in one visit.

Any question fire away and I will do my best to answer then when I can,

Please if you have questions ask on the forum as the tread seems to be once I have posted I get a lot of PM’s asking privately the questions , I would prefer to answer them publicly then everyone can see them ad I am sure that more than one person is thinking of the same questions.

And lastly many thanks for reading as without the readers my threads would be worthless.

I have plans for the KDS staff to join DW under their own name ie Kons @ KDS /Paul @ KDS in line with my log on as we intend to have more than one person from KDS detailing posting work up in the future and answering question , this will be part of the expansion within the group.

That is stunning Kelly, like Clarke, I will have to read through this evening but the finished article has such depth to the paint finish. Glad to hear that more regular writeups will be coming soon and that the business is expanding so well.

Cheers

Subbed for a PROPER read later.

So far, so awesome. It's a fairly safe bet, if I won the lottery I know what I'd get up to with a lot of the cash... Imagine all your dream "old" cars given this sort of treatment!
