ABC Detailing - Basalt Black 981 Porsche Boxster - Rupes Bigfoot Enhancement Detail



Welcome to another writeup from ABC Detailing!

Apologies for it being so long since the last. If you would like to keep up to date with our day-to-day goings-on please 'like' us on Facebook Here!

We were contacted recently to carry out an enhancement detail on this Basalt Black 981 Porsche Boxster, to remove light swirls and give it a general freshen up along with some protection.



The car turned up in an overall good condition, with very little contamination to show, just slightly lacking in shine with a few light scratches and wash marks.

A few befores of the car -





















First up as usual were the wheels and arches; Sprayed with pre-wash and rinsed, then washed with various brushes.







Intricate parts were taken care of as the car soaked in citrus degreaser to loosen up dirt before washing.



The car was then washed with Hubiwash, a new favourite!



The fabric roof was cleaned with a fabric-safe cleaner and brush to agitate.





Decontamination began as usual with IronX and Tardis, followed by a mild CarPro clay because there was very little contamination to remove after the touchless decontamination.







The car was then rinsed thoroughly, brought in and dried off ready for polishing the next day.



Enhancement began on day 2, using the Rupes LHR15ES Bigfoot System.

Exhausts polished to remove the slight tarnishing







Wheels, plastics and arches protected





LSP of choice



Interior was given a vacuum and dust down



And here are the finished photos!





























A very enjoyable detail on a beautiful car!
