2008 Porsche turbo back to black!

2008 Porsche Turbo 3-step paint correction – 13 hours start to finish!

This guy was a referral of another client of mine. Upon first arrival, after the personal introductions, the first thing out of my mouth was “oh, this thing is slightly grey, even with no lights on it, I can tell its going to be a long detail”. When a black car doesn’t have the shine, luster, gloss and looks slightly hazy and grey, you know its going to be some work! Luckily, Porsche paint is on the softer side of things, so the defects cleared up easily with the combo used.

To say it was a complete change would be an understatement! Words from the owner “damn, it looks like a new car!” and “when you have time, I want your next available day open for my F430, and then your next day after that for the Rolls Royce Phantom” – yep, that’s why I strive for better than new on every car I am given the ok on!

Before pictures will blow your mind! I have no idea how the previous guy was washing or detailing the car, but everything about it was wrong! Some of the scratches and RIDS were deeper than initially expected, but all came out perfectly fine!

Starting off with the lights, the sun, some 50/50 shots:















LED shots before and after:

Some finished shots at 1030 at night in the garage. Better light shots needed so I asked the owner not to drive the car and I’d come back to get some better shots…he was stoked on the outcome and agreed!







These are the after shots two days later when I went back for some sun shots.





















BAM! That’s it! Ill be sure to take the same type of pictures on his other cars!
