Porsche 997 Turbo - detailR - Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire

This beautiful Porsche 997 Turbo was a dream car for the owner, after lusting after one since childhood.
He finally picked this one up and booked it in to be freshened up for some fun over the summer.

The order of the detail.

Full Auto Finesse safe wash processes.
Decontamination - tar removal, iron fallout removal, clay bar and IPA wipe down.
Enhancement Detail - single stage machine polish.
Gtechniq C2 sealant.
ODK Glamour V2 show wax.
ODK Momentum wheel wax.
Interior freshen up.

Onto the car...

Wheels, tyres, arches and calipers cleaned first.

Snow foam softening the surface dirt before the 2 bucket method contact wash.

A bit of grime dealt with at this stage.

20180710_162549 by Richard Lewin, on Flickr

After the tar and iron fallout removal stages, the car is rinsed and brought inside for clay bar treatment.

20180710_173039 by Richard Lewin, on Flickr

A IPA wipe down. Delicate trims masked off and onto machine polishing.

Most of the car has been painted - to a good standard - but was a little dull in areas.

There were a lot of sanding marks left along the drivers side. These took a couple of cutting sets to remove before being refined.

The engine bay received a light clean up.

Niggly bits attended to.

The wheels were sealed with ODK Momentum.
Tyres and exterior trims dressed with Attire.

20180713_153308 by Richard Lewin, on Flickr

The paintwork received 2 layers of Gtechniq C2v3, followed by a lyer of the new ODK Glamour V2 Show Wax.

20180713_155026 by Richard Lewin, on Flickr

The interior had a little refresher, with the leather being deep cleaned.

Beautiful work Richard! Now the owner should replace the weathered wheel lug nuts.

Looked in very good order to start but great improvements especially the lights

In-spite of what it is I still think there's a degree of understatement in these - love it

I agree.
If I could have a Porsche, a blue 997 Turbo would be my preference.
