    How to turn a piece of coal into a black diamond...

    2005 Porsche 911 C4S (996)
    3.6 Liter flat 6
    345HP
    Black/Black
    123,818 miles
    Operation Coal into a black diamond!


    Client brought in his hammered 911 for some correction and protection. The paint looked grey, not black from all the defects. Completely covered in heavy swirls, holograms, scratches, road blast pitting (on hood) some crazing/cracking of the clear/beginning of clear failure, haze, water spot etching, you name it…it had it.
    It’s not perfect…but oh so much better!



    The ‘details’:

    Adam’s strip wash
    Medium clay alternative mitt
    Adam’s wheel cleaner
    Adam’s tire and rubber cleaner
    McKee’s37 APC
    DeFelsko PTG
    Scangrip lighting
    Flex 3401, pixie and Rupes iBrid
    LC force hybrid pads
    Griots FCC and PC
    GYEON Tire
    Auto Finesse glass cleaner
    303 protectant on leather/interior
    Metro vacuum
    Optimum panel wipe
    22ple Mistico Elemento Forte
    Adam’s black/trim restorer on cowl piece

    Thank you for looking/commenting!

    Damn Scott, that’s almost as bad as that truck you did a little while back. Great save!

    What an amazing save! I would’ve loved to see the look on the owners face when he picked it up, I bet he’s still gazing at it at home!

    That’s great man. That paint was Hammered! I’m sure it was really satisfying especially with it being black. Love the outdoor pics especially the last 1.How to turn a piece of coal into a black diamond...

    now THAT'S a turn-around. Nicely done. I know the love-hate that job likely was. Rewarding but loads of work. I might ask a favor if I could regarding one of the before shots. I'll message you.
