Detailer's Domain: 911 Turbo Detail

Here is another Porsche detail. Condition of the car it was in good shape, but still needed to be polished out. Customer wanted to regain its shine and gloss. I figured this would be a great car to use the Lusso Prototype Wax on. I believe we got the results the customer wanted.

Exterior only detail, take a look.

Products Used:
Exterior:
Adam's All Purpose Cleaner in the Cam Spray Foam Canon
Swissvax Paint Rubber and Optimum Instant Detail Spray and Gloss Enhancer for clay lube
Menzerna Super Intensive with the Uber Green Pad
Menzerna PO85RD with the Uber Blue Pad
Menzerna Top Inspection
Prototype Lusso
Einszett Spray Wax

Wheels and Tires
Uber Wheel/Tire/Wheel Well Kit

Tools:
Infratech 5300
Brinkmann MaxFire
Metabo PE12-175
Makita 9227 Hi Speed Rotary
The Uber Foam Pads (5.5inch)
Tons of "Uber" Microfiber Towels
Uber Drying Towels

Cam Spray 1500A with Cam Spray Foam Gun

Before:







Prep:
Wheels - P21S Wheel Cleaner Gel, and P21S Total Autowash on the wheel wells and tires






Bug and tar removed off the mirrors and bumpers with P21S TAW


The 911 being foamed up with Adam's All Purpose.

After you foam the car, do you still use a mitt on it?
