Detailer's Domain: 997 Turbo/Swissvax Crystal Rock

Porsche 997 Turbo /Lapis Blue Exterior Detailer's Domain
I love working on 911ís! This was the first dark colored car I would do with the new Swissvax Crystal Rock. The customer wanted a full exterior detail with paint correction.
The steps taken were a wash with Optimum Power Clean to strip off the wax/sealant anything on the carís finish.
Next was a nice claying and for the paint correction I used Menzerna SIP with a green pad finishing out with Menzerna PO85RD with a white pad. Finally I finished by applying Swissvax cleaner fluid to make sure the finish was clean and ready for Swissvax Crystal Rock. The Crystal Rock was very easy to apply and spread /waited about 15 minutes to remove. Removal was just as easy. The look well you can be the judge of that.

Below are the tools and products used:

Great work as always Phil. I don't think the pictures do it justice though because i really can't tell the difference between $1100 Crystal Rock wax and $230 Concorso. I would like to think that there is a difference other than the price tag.
