911 Turbo

My Brother-in-law was down this weekend from London so he let us loose on his 911 Turbo (2008 model). Awesome fun doing a car like this and he was very happy with the results which makes all the effort worth it. It was a bit of a rushed job as he dropped it off just before 1pm Saturday and we both had to be elsewhere just after 3 so we took that time to wash it, clay it, wash it again then get it inside and prep it. We then started (very) early on Sunday as we needed to be finished by lunch time.

How it was dropped off





Under the lighting showing up the swirls (these were really visible in daylight too)







Ready to go Sunday morning



Work in progress





The finished car



Not perfect but we were happy with the result considering it was a rushed job!











We did a two stage polish on the main panels with the Rupes 15 MKII and a single stage on the smaller or curved sections with the Rupes Nano. We finished it with Soft99 King of Gloss wax.

Crikey she was a swirly one wasn't she!
Great turn around, and she's got a real nice gloss about her now!

You said you did a 2 stage, what were the products?!

All Rupes, we find they work really well! Stage one was green pad with their green polish (this left some polishing marks as the paint was medium hardness but did a great job of removing the swirls) and then finished with the white finishing pad & polish. I was on the Ibrid for this job with the yellow pad and yellow polish in rotary mode, we find this gives a good combination of removing swirls and leaving a good enough finish to not require another stage on the smaller sections.

Thanks!

We agreed 6am but my mate overslept so we didn't get in the workshop until 6.40 and got going properly about 7am. We had the car completely finished by 12.30!

Lovely jubbly, at a guess he might be back soon rather than later, when you can achieve such great results on his car.
