NX-1 --- Red Porsche Boxster

One more red Porsche guys...
And again, when this car was dropped off it looked great from a distance but once I put it in front of my Halogens it showed why the owner wanted me to take care of it.
This was another paint correction job and it involved some areas to be wet sanded to get rid of some nasty scratches that it was bothering the owner a lot.

I have a lot of pictures of this Boxster so enjoy the BEFORE and AFTER pics, and let me know what you think about it.

BEFORE
As you can see Porsche looks great.




Here I'm getting everything ready to give it a nice 2 bucket wash.


Now take a look at this pics under the halogens...

Re: NX-1 --- Red Porsche Boxster

Yeah, I buffed that out too .


Here are some of the wet sanding I did.












This is one of the better pics that shows one of the scratches I removed with wet sanding.


Take a look at this how much dirt and grass, leaves etc was in there. I advised the owner to change that filter soon even thou I cleaned it a little.












The convertible fabric top was not too bad but I had it treated with a convertible top cleaner and a fabric protectant that makes it bead like if it was a painted surface.


The interior wasn't too bad either but after I was done with it it looked much better also.








AFTER

Some pics of it on the sun.

Re: NX-1 --- Red Porsche Boxster























And of course I have to show you some more pics under the halogens and a few under fluorescent.

Re: NX-1 --- Red Porsche Boxster









Look, I think the owner likes Jeeps too . This was in the rear trunk area.

Can't forget the interior...

Amazing work, Mario.

Thanks bro! Yes it is a '98, I forgot what year it was, I just texted the owner to confirm, it is a '98. I guess you know Porsche well Ryan.

Thanks Nate! I try to take detailing to another level bro, especially when I do a paint correction job, I get carried away as if the car is going to compete at a car show and it will be judge. I also like to focus on the little details that might not be as important to others.
Like this pics for example... quality is not great and I did not have a before shot of this but you will have to take my word for it... it wasn't looking this clean when I got it . All hinges and crevices are gone over and meticulously detailed. I don't like to see dirt anywhere I can see or within reach. I use a lot of detailing tools to get it clean like different size and type of brushes, miniature vacuum lines, cotton tip detailing sticks, various detailing foam tip swabs etc...
