    thanks for the comments

    i use all autoglym trade or bodyshop stuff. had to use 2 different compound polish's and then gave it a few coats of different wax's to finish it.

    i did all the inside aswell and fed the leather but it was no where near as bad as the outside so the differences are not as noticable

    haha funny you should say that. Steve (my mate and the owner) actually DID try the green side of one of those washing up sponges along with neat alcohol to get rid of the oxidisation!!!!!!! i went nuts when he told me. i have told him not to touch the paint again both on this 964 and the 993 he has just bought! i told him i would look after them from now on. cant bare seeing paint in that condition. makes me feel a little ill.

    Steve is a really old mate and a great guy.... but is hillarious when it comes to things like this...

    Fantastic job mate ,
    Am well impresed , altho the guy who owns the 911 deserves to be shot for letting it get so bad !
    Did u charge him ? or was getting it for the weekend payment?
    I bought a convertable in the wettest country in the world who says Scotsmen dont have a sense of humour !

    i practically live at his house at weekends..... drink his beer... eat his food... even dated his daughter for a short time... and now drive his car.... couldnt really charge him now could i... although it would have cost him around 400 for the work i did.

    im using it as advertising though and as a demo for a porsche specialist where i hope to get a bit of work coming my way based on the excellent job i did to this 911.

    Fantastic Work

    Bloody good job matey - well worth the 400 to get the Porsche back to the way it was meant to look.

    So how about a little write up on what you used - for all us novices.

    thanks

    basically i used autoglyms trade range. the products are stronger and more effective than the retail stuff

    in this order i did the following...

    Stripped off any old wax with TFR
    1300rpm polished with 03B compound polish
    1300rpm polished with Paint renovator polish
    Alloy wheel cleaner
    TFR tyres and arches and wheels
    Shampoo entire car
    Apply cleaner wax
    condition rubbers and plastics
    polish exterior glass
    dress tyres
    wax wheels
    take off cleaner wax and 1800rpm buff
    apply hard wax and leave for 3 hrs while carrying on other work
    vacuum interior
    shampoo interior
    polish interior windows and mirrors
    clean leather
    dress plastics
    feed leather
    take off hard wax and 1800rpm buff
    check everything looks ok and have a cup of tea.


    I thoght the Porker belonged to a Pikey there in when i seen it next to the caravan. Relieved to see it next to a house a pic or two later.
    haha someone else said that on another forum actually.... Nah Steve is no pikey... although he does have anice carlight caravan and a house in Ireland.

    Fantastic job JK, Nice to see I use same product (AutoGlym) as you....
    ALMOST the same.... the trade range products are generally stronger and more effective.

    Fair Play

    Fair play for doing it three times

    How long did it take JK? The change really is amazing. I would have thought a respray was required rather than all your hard work and effort but this is the proof.

    I remember seeing a competition for these type of repairs on CarCare or Autopia where you can win a new porter cable or something like that. You should enter it.

    Red paint is the worsed for oxidising. Its just the top layers which oxidise in UV sunlight. Oxidation is usually recoverable with alot of elbow grease.

    I/we the company manufacture alot of automotive car care products which we sell to retailers to re-brand etc. We often encorporate a higher concentration of actives for professional users. If you need anything special knocking up JK, just PM me.

    mmmm DB9. lovely... although after a bit of questioning, the owner admited to taking it through a car wash a few times :o

    6 hrs, full machine polish, layers of wax later and it looked like new again (or better :roll: :wink: )

    I think these Aston owners are missing a trick, if you turn up as any Aston garage in your aston they will clean it for you there and then, inside and out free of charge! A friend with a vantage hasn't yet checked this is the case, but he was told this on delivery - lovely cars!
