This 911 Turbo had been in storage at the owner’s house over the winter and was mainly in need of an exterior detail. Given that the car is black, the paint is relatively soft and the owner isn’t interested in a show car finish, we decided on a one-step correction. The car was washed with Optimum No-Rinse, clayed to remove contamination from the paint work, and then all trim was taped up for protection during the polishing process. All polishing was done with the Rupes 21 and 75E polishers, Lake Country black foam finishing pads along with HD Polish were used to achieve an approximate 80%+ correction rate, greatly increasing the depth and shine of the metallic black paintwork. Protection was provided by Optimum Polymer Technologies’ Optiseal, topped by Dodo Juice Supernatural.
This was the condition of the paintwork prior to beginning work, note the lack of shine and moderate wash-induced marring:
The wheel barrels hadn’t been cleaned in quite some time:
A test section was chosen and various pad/polish combos were tried to achieve this result; over 80% correction rate and significantly improved shine with lots of metallic flake showing:
