Cool [WAX-IT] Porsche 918 Spyder - XPEL Ultimate + Gyeon Mohs+

918 Spyder... The already legendary name is on the back on the latest car we detailed. Every ones heart rate goes up when he sees the latest Porsche supercar. We were contacted to protect this car in the best way we could, by applying the best coating and stone chip protection.

In this write up we want to show all the work carried out on a new car, why we applied the paint protection film,... were we made the difference!

*Pic 1. legendary!
*Pic 2. all of gaps made washing difficult!
*Pic 3. Degreasing and checking the paint




After washing with Gyeon Bathe and Microfiber Madness Incredipad we dried the car with the Microfiber Madness Dry Me Crazy and an Air Force Blaster. Gyeon Prep was used afterwards to degrease the paint and remove all residu.

Inspecting the paint soon proved to be a very important step, even on this supercar! A lot of sanding marks were visible on all panels. Pig tails, sanding marks, bad polishing,... Even Porsche can get it wrong.



*Pic 1-2-3. All marks were marked (pun intended).





*Pic 1-2. sanding marks
*Pic 3. pig tails




After analysing the damage we started correcting paint, obviously taking more time than expected! We used Scholl to achieve the result.


The beautiful silver paint is not the only surface we polished and protected! All the carbon fiber panels could use some gloss too so we used Scholl again.

Some carbonfibre parts weren't lacquered so we finished them with Swissvax Opaque. All glossy carbon received the Mohs+ treatment.


*Pic 1. dull carbon
*Pic 2. scratches around the trunk
*Pic 3. Scholl + DAP900.








*Pic 1. Dullness underneath the lights.
*Pic 2. Gyeon Mohs+
*Pic 3. That is why we did this!





*Pic 1-2. Carbon front lip before and after






*Foto 1. Carbon B-stijl
*Foto 2-3. Degreasing every-thing






XPEL

After washing, claying, polishing, degreasing it was time to finish the 918Spyder. By popular demand we started applying XPEL Paint Protection Films. We used to hate PPF because of the discoulouring, dull effect, orange peel, bad durability,...
For a few years there has been some major developments regarding these products.

XPEL has totally different characteristics so we were convinced to add this service. Compared to other this PPF has an amazing self healing capacity.

Let's hit the road!

Wowsers!!

Sorry I can't think of anything to write properly! It's just an amazing car that you would expect to be perfect and not need any kind of correction, this however proves manufacture "Perfection" is not true Perfection!!

Top job!
