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.
