NEW CAR DETAIL PORSCHE MACAN S

NEW CAR DETAIL PORSCHE MACAN S

This brand new 67 plate Porsche Macan S in black was delivered by the owner straight from the dealership. On inspection of the vehicle there was a very deep scratch on the boot and minor scratches around the door panels. A full wash down and decontamination was carried out with a multi stage machine polish to rid the defects.

When working my way around the car, moving the light onto the front bumper ready for polishing presented itself with a mass of polishing holograms, tight swirl marks from dirty machine pads and general poor finishing. This obviously had a knock and was rushed to get it out the door. I was in awe how this could be presented to a customer in that condition. The dealership themselves even contacted me via the owner asking for the videos and pictures of the defects I put up to be taken offline, because it looks bad… even though they were the ones who inflicted the defects in the first place. No compensation that I am aware of was given to the owner, only “sorry”. Ridiculous customer service and goes to show a premium brand cannot be trusted. I was pretty disgusted with it in all honesty.

Anyway, paintwork protected was a Kamikaze Collection combo with Miyabi being a base coat and certified only ISM Pro on top after specific curing times to give a beautiful wet look finish, intense gloss and superb protection against the elements.

Exterior glass was coated with Gtechniq, wheel faces coated with Carpro DLUX and the interior received a leather care package to help against dye transfer and dirt.

The Macan S now looks like it should have from the showroom.

2008 PORSCHE 997 GEN 2 GUARDS RED

This 2008 Porsche 911 997 Generation 2 3.8 Carrera S was in desperate need of a paint correction detail and protective coatings to protect the guards red paintwork. A two stage machine polishing process was carried out to rid as many defects as possible, there were some odd paint blistering on the rear bumper and a few sketchy areas also so this was treated with extreme caution or left alone if unworkable. Some of the worst marring I’ve ever seen down the sides of the Porsche and deep swirl marks taken care of.

After the polishing, it was time for two awesome Kamikaze Collection coatings. Doubling them up creates ridiculous gloss and superb durability against the elements. Miyabi was laid down first, with ISM Pro over the top after a curing period. Interior needed a good clean and vacuum with floor mats wet vacced. Exterior glass was coated with Kamikaze Collection Instenso with the wheel faces treated with Finishkare Hi Temp wax. Engine bay dressed with Aerospace 303.

The result, nearly ten years taken away from the appearance looking extremely glossy VERY bright and extremely well protected.

1988 PORSCHE 911 TARGA

I was invited down to D Class Automotive to detail this classic 1988 Porsche 911 Targa for one of their customers in Dubai. D Class are an extremely talented outfit in Woking, Surrey run by my friend Dave Price. Expert trimmers on all classics and modern presitge/exotic cars as well as development and contracted work for many manufacturers – Mclaren and their F1 division, Mercedes and just about every other car brand in between. It was very interesting seeing P1 GTR steering wheels, dashboard and seats being made up and checking out the precious metal in their showroom which you can see below in the HD video and pictures. Note this was only SOME of the stock there. The ones under covers and in the other unit are breath taking.

Onto the 911. A two stage machine polish was carried out to rid moderate swirls and defects. Certified detailer only Kamikaze Collection ISM Pro was applied to the paintwork and black trim. Glass received a coating of Kamikaze Collection Intenso with the wheel faces having a durable coat of Kamikaze Collection Stance. Tyres dressed with Gyeon.

A pleasure to see Dave and the team and be around some serious interiors, parts and cars!

BRAND NEW PORSCHE MACAN S KAMIKAZE COLLECTION ISM COAT

A gorgeous brand new Porsche Macan S in for a new car detail.

Some localised paint correction was required from the dealership “who didn’t touch it” but some moderate scratches from which looked like ‘panic buffing’ with a gritty cloth on the right hand side of the bonnet were dealt with before the whole Macan was machine polished.

Kamikaze Collection ISM coat for paintwork giving the super candy gloss look with excellent water/dirt repellency and extremely durable with trim also coated in ISM.

Gyeon products for exterior glass, wheels, tyres and calipers.

Interior leather was protected with Gyeon Leather Coat, floor mats wet vacced with chequered flag effect, all interior protective wrapping removed, vacuumed throughout and Chemical Guys Inner Clean for plastic panel/dash sections that weren’t leather trimmed.

Even though this is brand new, the difference in the finish now is stunning. Superb gloss, show car shine, excellent durability for the winter, a beautiful colour to show it all off too.
