Ultimate Vehicle Protection: 2015 Porsche Macan Turbo Black

2015 Porsche Macan Detail “Frankenstein” Combo

VEHICLE INFORMATION:

This beautiful 2015 Porsche Macan was given the ultimate vehicle protection. Started off with a high foam wash to remove all the light dirt and remove any polish residue. IronX & Decontamination stage revealed no significant issues to the paint. Paint preparation portion of the detail involved quite sometime polishing, thankfully heat and overall conditions were great. We did find 1 area near the driver front fender where a polisher was incorrectly used. Final Coating/Treatments that we chose our “Frankenstein” Combo:

Humidity & heat really accelerated the curing/air phase of the detail. We chose Leather Master Protection Cream & Optimum Protectant Plus as neutral safe protection versus any coatings that could inhibit normal contamination progression.

VEHICLE TREATMENT:

BMW 335 Black in for a general level 1 clean & protection detail. Suntek Matte Paint Protection Wrap Wash & Wax Maintenance on a Porsche 991 911. Both vehicles are kept outside so maintenance is hard. We wanted to protect and clean these vehicles without going too far into restoration. Porsche was dusted and vacuumed, Opti Seal doing wonders on the film’s slickness and cleanliness. 335 took some time to deep clean the interior leather surfaces as well as stripping as much as possible on the exterior.

BMW M5 E60 Metallic Sapphire Black Paint Enhancement

BMW M5 E60 Metallic Sapphire Black Paint Enhancement

VEHICLE TREATMENT:

E60 BMW M5 Sedan black metallic paint polish enhancement treatment. Our approach was to enhance the paint by removing the light and medium defects. This vehicle has 70000 miles and was originally in Virginia. On top of a brutal climate, the vehicle previously had a full body vinyl wrap. Our time was spent mostly removing the glue on every edge besides completing a thorough paint polish. Despite quite a few deep scratches especially on the lower sides and rear bumper, the paint was leveled in high traffic areas and fully polished for high gloss. For the age we’re happy and the pictures show the beast waiting to hit the streets. Glue removal was a test of patience, we went through a complete bottle of Tarminator & Adhesive Remover.

This 2004 Infiniti G35 underwent a serious transformation due to neglect from the previous owner. We had to deal with overall dirt from being left underneath a tree, tons of paint chipping/gauges, paint splatter loss, and absolutely no protection for the vehicle. Our goal was to revive the vehicle without going concours style. Client requested if the headlights could be restored and Infiniti letters de-badged, both completed!
