Level 2 Enhancement: Porsche 997 911 White

A basic exterior enhancement to this low mileage 997 911 in great condition. We paid particular attention to the front section of this vehicle for TVP Auto’s Paint Protection Film Treatment later this week. All gaps checked, extra decontamination on the hood. Vehicle needed a light polish to really brighten and clarify the surface. Interior was lightly dusted and vacuumed. A thorough enhancement to ensure no marks or embedded dirt within the surface. White can be pretty with the right preparation. Extra layer of Powerlock was applied for easier PPF application.

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.

Paint Enhancement: 2003 Boxster Lapis Blue

Paint Enhancement: 2003 Boxster Lapis Blue

VEHICLE INFORMATION:

One step paint enhancement to improve the appearance of this low mileage Boxster. Noted front bumper and rear bumper repaint. Huge polish/compound issues from the previous body shop which left a lot of work getting residue out of every gap and edge. Plenty of swirling on the top of all surfaces from a rotary. We stripped off the old silicone based dressing and ensured a proper finish.

This owner had previous issues with another detail shop that had burnt into the clearcoat, happy to say the end result was a great revival! Our next approach for this vehicle will be to deep clean the leather, carpet, and overall interior sanitization.

Clean & Protect: Porsche Cayman S with Iron Decontamination

Clean & Protect: Porsche Cayman S with Iron Decontamination

Vehicle: 2008 Porsche Cayman S with slight ink leather issues and minor hood marring. Front hood protection film was scruffed at one point so we used HD Adapt to refine the surface. Vehicle was given CarPro IronX to deep clean the surface, then Nanoskin towel was used to remove all the fall out on the vehicle. A thorough cleaning of the interior including Leather Master 3 Step system to address the blue ink dye transfer issue. Otherwise vehicle was in great shape for the age, we simply deep cleaned anything we could see and protected. 22PLE works wonders on wheels!
