Initially, the Porsche 911T Targa was slated for a level 1 polishing and paint sealant. However it was being shipped to a new home that sits on a dirt road.
Although housed in a garage, a ceramic coating was applied after the paint correction for better protection and easier cleaning. The coating locks in the polished paint results for years to come. It also adds slickness and gloss.
Along with paint correction and coating, the 911T interior received a light dusting and vacuum. It’s vinyl top was protected with Raggtopp Vinyl Protectant.
Have you considered a flu shot for your vehicle? Let’s assume you’re the tidy type who never brings food or trash into your car. Your car looks pretty clean, especially after it gets washed and vacuumed, doesn’t it? But what about the germs you can’t see?
Think back to your last trip to your favorite restaurant, or even that quick pit stop at the local gas station. Did you use the restroom? What were your feet standing in? That’s right, pretty gross! Well, all that dirt and bacteria is now on the floor mats and pedals of your car, but it doesn’t stop there.
Studies have shown that millions of germs, fungi, bacteria and even mold are most likely hitching a ride in your car. Microbiologist Anthony Hilton from Ashton University randomly tested car interiors and found on average, 285 types of bacteria present in every square inch of the vehicle. Steering wheels, gear levers and trunk carpets were the worst offenders with as much as 300 to 400 bacteria per square inch. Does Fido ever go for a ride in your car? The study found traces of fecal matter from pets too!
“Our study found organisms in a car that are not uncommon to be found around a toilet,” said Hilton. ” Today’s car has become more of an extension of the domestic environment — where people eat and drink and talk on the phone. It’s like a room of your house on wheels.”
So, what can be done? Have your car professionally steam cleaned by a trained and certified detailer. By combining specialized cleaning products with proven techniques and an industrial-grade dry vapor steam machine, your car can not only look clean, but become sanitized too. All these tools and process act as a flu shot for the interior.
Dry vapor steam machines produce super-hot steam typically above 300° F. The steam will kill microorganisms on contact, so your car is getting sanitized while it’s getting clean. This strong cleaning power uses extremely low water content, so carpets and upholstery won’t be wet once the cleaning process is over.
If you don’t disinfect the germs in your car at least once a year, your car can easily spread the cold and flu viruses, or even worse! Interested in learning more?

The new car smell is unforgettable. Do you remember buying a brand new car? No previous owner, low mileage, sparkling paint and that interior smell? Ahh!
For many, the new car smell evokes a clean, fresh, unspoiled feeling. Years after that purchase, car owners are chase that new car scent. They buy air fresheners hoping to keep or recapture that feeling.
The scent is produced by new plastics and vinyl releasing gas. All surfaces are bare: seats, dash, console, panels, and carpets. Nothing at the dealership has been added to the car creating this scent. There is no exact new car smell. The actual odor varies based on the interior makeup. It may include hints of leather and or metal. Once completely released, the scent goes away.
Therefore, you will lose the new car smell. Remember, that odor you love so much is a mixture of gases. Instead of the new car scent, you should strive for a clean scent.
If have questions about interior odors or want a clean and fresh interior, please contact Red Clay Detailing at 404-419-6882. You will receive a clean odorless interior. If desired, you can add the “bottled” new car scent, afterwards
The owner wanted to bring the 1986 BMW M6 paint back to life. It had sat under a car port for years.
First, the car needed a bath. The BMW was cleaned of all the dirt, dust, debris, and leaves. This allowed for a better inspection of the paint.
Put mildly, the unpreserved 30 year old paint was in poor shape. It was dull and faded. It was covered in water spots and deep scratches. The BMW M6 required sanding and heavy compound polishing with wool pad.
After removing the scratches and water spots, the paint gloss was not at its best. It still need further refining. One more step was needed: polishing.
Polishing the paint removed any haze from compounding. It made the paint pop! The M6 hasn’t look this good in a long time. Who knows how long it sat without any real love and care?
