Detailer's Domain: 911 Turbo X50 Cab, what a mess

Look what happens when you loan out your 911 Turbo Cab (X50)

I get a call from Marc Faraj at Town Motors Porsche and he tells me he did something bad.....

I asked him what can be so bad?

He said: I loaned out my 911 Turbo Cab to a buddy.
I said: How bad he says you'll see......

When I received the car it was early morning the sun wasn't out yet, the next day when I was able to pull it out I couldn't believe my eyes! The car was shot!

What was done -

- Wheels were prepped with P21S Wheel Gel and cleaned up with various brushes
- Tires were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash and washed down
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed
- Dried
- Paint inspected and measured
- Wheels protected with Swissvax Autobahn
- Tires dressed with einszett Vinyl Rubber Care
- 2 Step Paint correction (Meguiars M105 with an Uber Yellow, and Menzerna PO85RD with an Uber Blue)
- Inspection with Fenix, 3m Sun Gun, Infratech, and natural sunlight
- Einszett Glanz was used as a last step
- Rubber and Plastics Treated
- Exterior windows and mirrors cleaned and sealed
- Exhaust tips cleaned

Interior Detail

- All interior surfaces cleaned and protected, including glass, and all
vinyl/plastic surfaces.
- Carpets and upholstery vacuumed.

That car was a pig sty. Great job as usual. By the way...I hate those fake quad exhaust tips Porsche used. I mean seriously, fake tips on a sports car of that price/reputation?

How can someone do that to a car? A Porsche no less? I'm hyperventilating looking at it. But once again, Phil to the rescue

Is it time for my spring detail yet?

I can't believe his buddy is responsible for all of that, unless it was a long term loaner...Just saying.

Clearly this was not an overnight or weekend "borrow the car"..looks like a few dozen automated car washes to get the finish to look like that....

Great job Phil, wish you were down here so yo could do my rides!
The journey is the destination....
