Porsche 911

Dave is a good friend and I always enjoy seeing him and his 1986 911, which you may remember from about two years ago when I first detailed it. Earlier this year, the car was hit by a deer and the repair work was less than expected by Dave and without going into a lot of detail, it was my job to make it presentable again. There are still a few areas that are beyond my job description but I did the best I could to make it shine like a diamond.

Dave also asked me to remove the original Carrera badge from the deck lid and correct behind it and install a new one. Anyone that has cleaned a Porsche with his badge on it knows that it is a terrible space to clean and Porsche black is the worst to work with.

The pictures do a lot of the speaking for me: I did a three step polish and then finished the paint with Optimum Car Wax. Dave also asked to have the wheels coated to help with the maintenance of the polished lips. Bare metal will tarnish in the elements because there is no protective finish to protect from the elements. Solution? Polish it, prep it, and coat with Opti-Metal Coat for a lifetime coating! Now the wheels can just be washed without polishing. Easy!

Thanks again Dave. The car will look great in Winter hibernation!

Opti-Metal Coat

I had mentioned before that my parents have a raw copper kettle that was given to them over 30 years ago as a wedding gift and since it is raw metal, it is prone to oxidation. My mom was tired of polishing it all the time, even with Optimum Metal Polish, so I brought it home and after polishing it, coated it with Opti-Metal Coat. It's a lifetime metal coating for finished or raw metals that can withstand up to 1,000ยบ F. No more need for her to polish!
