Evo-Detailing

Porsche 911 GT3 - 996 - Work in progress

Hello friends, long time no see :).
I haven't posted here in a while, been busy developing some projects i am working on, motorsport & stuff, not so much focused on detailing lately, but, this will change.
The car in this thread is a dream of any car enthusiast, and detailer in the same way.
So, long storry short :)
Washing :
- CG Maxi Suds II
- Meg's APC
- Wash mitt microfiber with noodles
- Few Brushes
Claying was carried out with Meg's Aggressive clay and ONR as lube;
Since i only had time for the paint correction test, i'we used :
- RUPES 21 ES
- RUPES BigFoot 21
- 3M FCP
- 3M Extrafine
- Meg's 101
- Meg's 205
- Menz 106FA
- Pads : 3M, Meg's, Mirka and LC
On arrival :

The front of the car and all the areas exposed to stonechips are covered in film, so extra care needed here.

Being a sports car, the brake dust is no wonder :)

Even through the dirt you could spot some of the the defects :

Looking good, but you should drop the red MG clay bar, that have made the most of these marrings on the bonnet, i think it is way too agressive to use, there are many other clay bars that do just as well a job, but without all the marrings on the paint.

The defects inflicted by the clay are a great amount, yes, but since we are speaking of clay, and marrings, they are easily removed even with a finishing combo, and they do not influence the work i carry on the car.

Usually due to the heavy contamination here in Romania, i prefer to use this kind of technique. Lighter clays i use only when the car comes in for claying and wax.

Thanks for the tip :) !

Thanks :).

I have this detailing shop -Evolution Detailing- since 2008. However it is not my main job. It is one of them. I will try in 2015 to focus more on detailing.

Concerning the machines.

The rotary is like a tank, it cuts, it has power, it keeps the rpm constant no matter the pressure, so i would say it is a good, even a very good tool.

The BigFoot for me is a bit of a dissapointment. Everybody in the detailing world praises this machine and the work it can do. Nobody says the real truth thoe.

What i mean. Maybe in a world like the us or the uk it is a great tool ar removing defects. But since here, in Romania we have quite severe defects, this machine does not cope with the task. I have tryed diferent techniquies and pad + polish combos but to the same result. It finishes miles better than a rotary (but all orbitals do), and that's about it.

Yes it is light, it is easy to manover but, in removing defects lacks power.

This Porsche for example is a car with minor defects compared to the average here. So even to this one, the BigFoot did nothing, or almost nothing.

I boughit it because is the thool to have not because i am or was convinced of its capabilities.

Maybe you could obtain same results using the BigFoot, but it will for sure take longer. And since the advertise says reduced working time bla bla bla, it is, at least in my opinion a biiiig lye.

Yeah. I asked my suppliers to give it to me big foot for testing. I respect it, but i dont need it. It takes to much time to get a perfect result if we talking about scratches. Especially if we talking about ceramic clears. I use rotary machine for the big job til he last touch and the finish i make with orbital 6mm sandingmachine using polishing pad. Thats all.

Sorry to be late, but I had so much work to do that I could not spare 20 minutes to write this down. So, without further do, here goes :).

Since on the hood and test fender I established the correct method for removing defects, all I had to do was to aply that to the whole car.

IMG_0056_zps9665441b.jpg

Quite happy :D

On the roof the left overs of some bird poo removed not so properly left these marks.

IMG_0017_zpsc2bc137e.jpg

IMG_0025_zpsba6ba6f3.jpg

Due to the fact that they were quite deep, I hat to run on higher speed, and because of that, unlike the way i like, I left some holos. Later to be removed.

IMG_0033_zps7783a3e6.jpg

At least the ugly RDS were gone

Nice reflection as well

The mirrost began like this

In order to polish around the GT3 badge I had to remove it.

Used a heat gun to bring up the temperature a bit and make the adhesive a little bit more flexible

IMG_0175_zpscdfc1e94.jpg

Then, using a fishing string I removed the badges

IMG_0176_zps40fc8feb.jpg

And I was left with this

IMG_0177_zps622c76b7.jpg

Easily removed by an glue remover and a scraper.

Compounded looked like so

IMG_0187_zpsca215a76.jpg

The clear film on the front of the car was also compounded.

IMG_0192_zpsbc575aea.jpg

More translucent, this gave a better reflection.

IMG_0193_zps848f023a.jpg

On the other side of the roof :)

Nice i would say !

IMG_0212_zps7a789599.jpg

Degreased & washed the car once again.

IMG_0292_zps2e26f629.jpg

IMG_0298_zpsc84a03de.jpg

The left overs from the compound were removed like this.

IMG_0057_zps3f4ccba4.jpg

Then back to the paint correction area for drying.

IMG_0301_zps816ef18f.jpg

IMG_0309_zps42c12eeb.jpg

As always Meg's 21

IMG_0369_zps73209983.jpg

IMG_0380_zps76c880a3.jpg
