Hurricane Region PCA Oktoberfest 2014

Hurricane Region PCA Oktoberfest 2014

Hurricane Region PCA Oktoberfest 2014

Many thanks to the PCA Hurricane Region staff & crew for inviting me yesterday to speak about basic detailing principles. If you are curious, this is a once a year event featuring beautiful Porsches in the Raleigh, Durham, Cary, & North Carolina Area:

All Porsche and other exotic car owners are invited to the annual Hurricane Region Porsche Club of America OktoberFest on Sunday October 5, 2014.  OktoberFest is an afternoon event filled with people, cars and refreshments and gives you a chance to enjoy some of the area’s finest automobiles.   This is a low-key “wash and show” event, so no need to get out the Q-Tips and white gloves to show your car.

As in years past, we will be holding OktoberFest at the picnic area at Montague Lake in the Cary / Raleigh area.  Montague’s is located at 10301 Penny Road, just east of the intersection of Penny Road and Kildaire Farm Road.

Level 2 Enhancement: Porsche 997 911 White

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.
