This is my first post here. Looks like there is a great mix of detailers from all over the place here. High quality at that. In anycase I thought I would throw my details into the mix. Everyone seems quite friendly and hope to get to know a few of you here. Hopefully I will be able to add value to this part of the forum.

I thought it best to start off with a German vehicle instead of some other exotic.

Anyways so the past couple of days I spent my time at the Porsche dealership on a trade in that was in horrendous condition. It was my first detail at that dealership and the people there were great. Although it was disappointing that someone would treat a car, any car the way the previous owner treated this beauty.

During the inspection stage the roof and rear hatch had particularly low paint reading and was hit with the PC DA with a much less aggresive combination.

Please excuse some of the untouched wheel wells. The car was washed and sat in the bay. I did a quick ONR on the paintwork and went at it.

Whoops one last thing. I was only to address the paintwork at the request of the client.

Anyways enough of my babbling.

wow, what did the owner use to wash it, a brillo pad? Great recovery on it though, I wish I had your skill and patience :)

Thanks for taking the time to look guys. The owner used the vehicle in the winter and I would assume he went a little crazy with the ice scraper.

Smoothy i appreciate the compliment :)
