Detailer's Domain: Porsche 911 C2S Swissvax

This was a detail that came from a Rennlist member, after months of going back and forth we finally got the schedule figured out and I finally got to meet this mint condition C2S (minus the paint of course, ) so after 2 years of ownership it had seen washes and waxes and was never polished, due to time constraints and no one in the customer's area to take care of it. When I got the car I found that the paint was dull and had tons of wash marks.
So a 2 step polish was done with Menzerna PO203 with an Uber Orange and Green pad followed by Menzerna PO85RD, I finished the car with Swissvax Crystal Rock.

Products Used:
Exterior:
Lusso Auto Bath in the Cam Spray Foam Canon
Swissvax Paint Rubber and Optimum Instant Detail Spray and Gloss Enhancer for clay lube
The Uber Menzerna PO203S/PO85RD Kit
Menzerna Top Inspection
Swissvax Crystal Rock

Wheels and Tires
Uber Wheel/Tire/Wheel Well Kit
Replaced Swissvax Pneu on this one for Einszett Vinyl Rubber Care

Interior and Glass (sorry no pics)
Lusso Glass Polish
Leather Master Strong Cleaner
Leather Master Vital
Einszett Cockpit
Einszett Plastic/Vinyl Cleaner

Engine: (sorry no pics)

No dressings needed

Tools:

Tons of "Uber" Microfiber Towels

what do you currently use for your leather?

some of this will be normal wear.

but this kit has been extremely successful with our customers.

works well and leaves a matte finish

thanks, car is pretty much new, but essentially nothing on the leather, when i t goes for a wash it just gets some warm water i think. essentially, i dont touch it.
i know very little about detailing, but i want it the leather to hold and still look good...so you recommend this kit.
how do u feel about those leather wipes they sell at places like home depot, etc, they are like 10 bucks and say the moisturize and clean and all that?
also, do you know how to get salt stains out of the pedal region; is just soap and water fine, thats what i was gonna do, just dont want the soap to discolor the carpet if its too strong.
thks

you can try soap and water but I think you might need something with a little more bite.

as for the leather I would skip on the wipes.

if the seats are new then I would go with Einszett's Leathercare its a one step and should do what you need.
