NX-1 --- 1988 Porsche Carrera

Hi guys!
Let me know what you guys thing about this job I just finished.
This Porsche is an '88 and with only 55K miles, the owner keeps it in great shape but he decided to bring it to me for some paint correction, a complete detail and to paint the calipers as well.

He left extremely happy with the job I did on his Porsche.

Here's some pics...

BEFORE


As you can see the Porsche doesn't look that bad in this pics, but just wait till you see it in direct sunlight or halogens.
The Porsche was only washed on this pics and I was already treating the tires.





Here we are painting the calipers on the lift. I use high temp paint and high temp clear I also place high temp decals with whatever the customer wants and in any color. In this case the calipers were very small and not enough flat area for decals, the owner agreed not to add any decals. Plus with the BBS wheels it looks much better like that as you can barely see them though the rim.


Everything is carefully covered and then the calipers get prepped. In this pic they have the last coat of paint but I don't think the clear was on yet, I could be wrong on that.



While the Porsche was on the lift, I gave the rims a nice wash for a later on extreme makeover. Just wait when you see the after pics of this...


Take a look at the carpet behind the clear plastic (and the clear plastic too) and compare to the same pic on the AFTER section.


Take a look at how faded all the black plastics are on this pics... Take a look at the plastic on the win how it has faded drip marks. And there was ton of old wax residue all over the edges as well.
Also the red on the wing was worst than what it shows on the pics, lots of oxidation. In the AFTER pics it shows all taken care of.





Now, take a look at the paint, and this is after I washed it. You can see a lot of swirls all over the car when you look at it in direct sunlight.


Here's a few more under the halogens.

Thank you! I used Chemical Guys Grime Reaper and a lot of elbow grease .
Yeah I had to work the brush a lot, cleaning those BBS was not much fun, it was very time consuming. But the Grime Reaper worked very well, I had it mixed 50/50.
