Ladies & gentleman ...presenting to you...another of our detailing adventure journey together with my buddy Seech
the best ever Porsche made - one of the car every drivers would love to have.......the supercar
With the advent of the water-cooled 996, Porsche needed to find a way to continue the lineage of its motorsport-focused 964 and 993 RS models
we detail some months ago http://thedetailers.blogspot.com/200...f355-just.html
The answer was the GT3.
Built by hand away from the main 996 production line, the GT3 enabled the homologation necessary for Porsche to provide cars for a wide range of GT racing
The body is based on a modified Carrera 4 bodyshell, suspended on lowered, fully adjustable suspension and anti-roll bars, with beefier brakes and a limited-slip differential to complete the package. No traction control or stability management driver aids are fitted, with ABS being the only concession to computer-controlled driving
911 GT3. Its engineering solutions are proven on the track. And best appreciated there, too. .... is derived from the 911 GT3 Cup racing cars. Made from genuine ......

As befits the racing heritage, driving a GT3 is a raw, loud and utterly visceral experience. Every journey is an event that rewards concentrated effort to wring the best from the car
the beast look ok from a distance but...upon closer & under 300 watt Halogen light....unveil
Residues of dirt & grim from rain
even some visible swirls did not manage to hide before wash
water stains from rain residues
left side passenger door
a good bath for this stallion
hmmmmm 2 bucket?
where & when u encounter your limitations .....as no splashing of running water & hosing allowed in the covered car park
my solution is diluting ONR optimum no rinse wash 1 ounce to 2 gallon of water 3 caps to 8 litres of water
just 3 caps to 8 litres of water & no need a second bucket......as i left the 2nd bucket to rinse off the rims cleaning later
after ONR mixtures....blueish ...water tension now is created to hold dust below & same time washes & lubricate
rear bonnet before wash...
even visible swirls very onvious
after soaking the 1st microfibers in ONR...wipe on & buff dry with
after wash...now u can see TOGWT wax
______________ i realised some are always good in written & never seen any of his work___________________
diluting 30 ml of ONR to 500 ml of water as lube for clay .....to pick up paint surface above contamination...such as tar films, industrial fall out, tree sap, brakes residues, old waxes residue....or any dirt or adhesive residues
look at the wax residues
on the clear bra...as the owner specifically mentioned & very concern about correction without damaging, on the clear bra
this is what i pick up ...without scratching the paint
next moving on to the body...before
more contaimination picked
moving on to the wheels
issue here how do we hose down the chemicals & residue in this covered car park?
i opt to the least aggressive method rather than corrosive chemicals approach - for health & safety reason
aggitating with Optimum power clean & brushing off with wheels brushes
sprayed ONR & wipe down with onr + microfibers
with this little help ...i managed not only to clean but also restores & protect her...later was sealed by opti seal & wax by Oc wax
ta da ...super wheels for the ride
huge huge rims for extra road holding
6 pots caliper
this is what i gather from ONR - the residue that was retain by the water tension
another pics before
moving on to the dirtest part of the exhaust
during aggitation OPtimum power clean as the least aggressive method
to be continue by my buddy seech...the results is astonishing
brake light correction..with Megs M205 & CCS cutting foam & polishing with CCS polishing foam
Paint correction -
pics taken 3 WEEKS ago- plenty of swirls & some hologramming existed....sign of
under noon day sun
left quater back
pics before - swrils from improper washing
after trying a numerous product... it seems that Megs M105 with Lake country CCS cutting pad suits the correction..as there is lots of RIDs under the swirls...awaiting to surface when the swirls is eliminating
& Master Seech...came behind me with Optimum Polish with Megs polishing pad
& we both finishes it with Optimum Finish with LC CCs blue finishing pad
Protected with Opti seal by Seech
Optimum Car wax-ed by me
utimate shine at last, my detailing adventure will be very dull without my buddy Seech...
the good sayings goes...as iron sharpen iron, so as one man sharpens another man life

Powerful potential needn’t always be used. It’s enough to know that it’s there.

the only pure & only shift gear..... only purist
another discovery...hidden compartment
Once an opportunity to open up presents itself then the GT3's party trick is revealed: above 5000rpm that engine screams with a finely tuned, normally aspirated howl that causes the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up

I love that color too. Nice and dark to flatter your work but not all the way black. Although I own black I still think it lacks "character". That color has some character (well, it does NOW)
