996 GT3 x Wes_R(44 pics)
 
Hey Maxbimmers,


Happy New Year!


I got a call from from a gentleman wanting to schedule in a Porsche to get detailed for storage. He hadn't had time to bring it in earlier and with a little opening in the weather he wanted to do it quickly before the next heavy snowfall. I got no description of the Porsche, what model, the color that it was, to me it was just another storage detail. We figured out a date and confirmed our availabilities.


Imagine my shock when I came in the morning to find a 996 GT3 on BBS LMs, factory roll bar, and Recaro factory seats, waiting outside my shop door!!!!

I love the color! And the LMs are perfect on it!

2 Bucket Method. The bucket on the left is the water bucket. It has soap in it already because I forgot to take the picture first before we started washing.

Washing
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/012.jpg

Rinsing. We were so happy to have this car in the shop we parked it sideways. Hahaha
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/013.jpg



After washing and drying with a microfiber towel we went straight into waxing

Wax applied to the paint as uniformly as possible
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/014.jpg

Left to cure for about half an hour

Then wiped off with tender loving care
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/015.jpg



Moving on to the interior we start with vacuuming

We removed the seat cushions to vacuum everywhere

I'm glad we had these extensions to reach in the tight areas behind the roll bar
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/020.jpg



Next up was dusting out all the crevices of build up and a little bit of gunk

I love these seats!!!!

Finally the last part of the interior clean up, the wipe down.

Hot towel

The roll bar had some stains on it
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/027.jpg

Even the extinguisher got wiped down

Windows got cleaned
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/031.jpg

I don't know how he fit in there! That's dedication!
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/030.jpg




A finishing touch I like to do is clean the pedals
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/032.jpg




So after making love... errr I mean detailing this beautifully put together GT3 here are the after pics to admire.

Completed interior pics

Did I say I really love these seats?
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/034.jpg

Complimentary "GT3" shot. Plus I think the carpets look "perfect"
http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/035.jpg

http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/n...996gt3/036.jpg




Not sure if I mentioned it before but this was just a detail/clean up for storage. No paint correction. Nonetheless the paint wasn't that bad and the wax added a nice pop.

So on to the finished exterior pics

Did you manage to get all the dust out of the driver's rear wheel well? I hung that rear BBS bad boy over the lawn at DDT in dramatic fashion, huge rooster tail of dust. Hope it didn't present too much trouble.

Wow, my old beast is still around. Last I hear it was in dire need of some paint correction.

dbworld4k 01-11-2014 10:58 AM
