Good client (and L4P Member) brought her 997 Turbo in for the works after I gave it a quick cleanup at her work along with a few others. Plenty of defects on this one and she wanted it looking as good as possible and protected for the long term with Opti-Coat Pro. 30+hrs went into this one.








As it arrived






























These waterspots were a concern of the owner. Even after the dirt was gone, they were still very much present. Extreme measures would be required to remove the extreme etching.







After washing, IronX, claying, and drying I took it in and put it under the lights to start hunting and destroying all the defects










After compounding the hood







Before and after by the Porsche crest




Looking better!

Before




After









Opposite angle on the hood




One side corrected, the other not yet




And after correction completed



















The rockers were corrected as much as safely possible. There were some deep scratches that could not be removed without compromising the clear, which measured on the thin side.






Sunroof had some issues...










Wetsanding was required to remove the water spot etching on the spoiler. 1500 grit and then 3000 grit. Some of the deepest etching I've ever seen from waterspots.









Once all compounding was done I took it outside to check the paint in the little bit of sun that remained at the end of day 2.

Owner kept interior very clean, so just some minor tidying up was done.











After medium polishing was complete, the Turbo got an alcohol wipedown to remove any polishing oils and an inspection out in the sun before final polishing was done.

After all correction (compounding, medium polishing, and final polishing) was verified under direct sunlight, Opti-Coat Pro was applied for permanent protection for the paint. Here are the final shots of 3 long days of work.








































Thanks for looking!

I loved reading this and scrolling through all the images. It's clear you're passionate about cars and love the vehicles you touch. Tremendous job with the correction, beautiful handiwork.

My jaw always drops looking at your threads! I wish we lived closer to see if you could do anything to my 24 year old car! Thanks for sharing the detailed pictures, it means alot when someone loves to detail to the extreme as you do. It shows in your work, and it becomes a rare art.

Black Wow Pro is a great product for trim restoration.
