Detailer's Domain and the Porsche Carerra GT (lots of pics)
 
Alright I have to say when I got the call from my customer on this one I was very excited [:D]

The Porsche Carrera GT! Red on Black! 5000 miles in pretty good shape, it needed a very thorough claying, and had some swirls and light scratches that needed to be polished out, and off course the Swissvax Treatment! The interior was cleaned up and the engine was wiped down.

Time: about 8 hours (2 in the crew)

Take a look:

Adam's Car Wash
Adam's Clay Bar with Adam's Detail Spray as lube

17. Dressed the tires with Adam's VRT

Awesome work! So how was the car?

E61Silver 09-21-2007 09:37 AM

Great looking car and great work!

Wagner 09-21-2007 09:45 AM

Looks wonderful, love your products..But...(sorry there is a but)...can you show detailing work done on cars that aren't near brand new? Like maybe a 2000 X5 or something like that, where time has taken a shot at the vehicle. I would really love to see those before and afters, as I think your work is great.

Phil did show us a very filthy 530 or 525 some time ago... It sure was a miracle transformation.
