Motrgeeks very own Porsche carrera 4s

At the recent meet at Motorgeek,we talked about getting the 911 back into fine fettle
the car gets used on trips back and forth to Scotland
so ,ive spent the last 3 days at Motorgeek ,lavishing some time and effort on this stunning motor,it also was a chance to try out some new products

There are quite a few pics ,so please bear with me ,as icouldnt decide which to leave in or take out

Day 1

Car was ,snowfoamed with Motorgeeks own foam,nice and thick ,and it shifts the dirt
Washed with a new Merino wool Koala wash mitt,Poorboys slick suds,two buckets etc
Wheels cleaned with various brushes and Optimum powerclean















after a good rinse the car was left wet and clayed with
Nanoskin autoscrub pad and Poorboys spray and wipe as a lube
differnt to clay as you listen to the pad gently gliding across the paint,you can hear the contaminents being removed,from a scratchy noise to silence
when removed,works well and no marring on the hard paint



looking better after a wash and clay



the car was dried with hot air pet drier and towels,then brought inside
for inspection,lights used included metal halide and 50w led

the following pics show various slight swirling ,the odd scratch removal etc

i used Wolfgang Uber compound
this is a new to me polish,you vary the cut by altering the pad
after a while testing combos,settled on Lake Country CCS pads yellow cutting and orange light cutting pads on the Flex vrg,smaller areas (engine cover,bumpers etc,were polished with the Flex rotary using the same smaller pads)





















gloss levels now increasing



roof now done















Good at removing what little dust there was







so thats two days done
onto the third day



exhaust done with Mothers cone,Mothers chrome polish,fine wire wool and Mothers metal polish



Black trim and scuttle panel,treated with Wolfgang trim sealant
heres the under bonnet compartment plastics



after the Paint was give a wipedown with eraser,i sealed the paint with
Pinnacle Black Label ,Diamond surface coating a ceramic sealant
goes on so easy,then buffs off just as easy,can be used on paint,glass,and wheels (we used something diffrent on the glass,Pinnacle Glass coat)



so before the finished shots all the products used
the sealant was a breeze to use,we applied two coats to ensure overall coverage,it will now stay inside for 24 hrs to keep dry and fully cure,Motorgeek will keep an eye on its performance

A massive thanks to Stewrat from Motorgeek ,who removed the wheels, and cleaned and sealed them up with Black Diamond
the tyres were dressed with Optimum tyre gel

Everything used is readilly available from Motorgeek

My own thanks for letting enjoy my days off on this stunning machine

any questions etc ask away

Fabulous work Steve, took me back to a black one of these I did a few years ago Was not a 911 fan until I spent 3 days on one - love them now! They just ooze quality, their bodywork and finish is excellent. Love the original wheels on this one too What was the interior like?

As always Steve thanks for posting
