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.
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?
