    So the guy calls me up with some kind of contaminant on the paint. Looked like little clear grease spots, like the car had been misted with wesson oil or something. Anyways, he wanted them off, and said he had luck with a clay bar. So I gave it the Dawn bath to get a good solid clean base. Then off to the races with PM/OP topped with Natty's Red. I did the ONR/OCW step to smooth things out a bit. I think it really turned out nice.

    Definitely looks deeper and wetter in the afters.

    Didn't rain here but shooting the Cayenne Turbo S I did today at sundown doesn't get me any sun shots. :sad2: Frickin' 9 hours just to do the exterior. I hate Porsche black paint. :mad:

    :bigthumb: yeah, I'm a tinter now, that's our shop. still do a few details on the side.

    :hsugh:

    that sucks. what the hell did you do....oh, porsche.....

    btw, I really like doing an ONR/OCW after a glaze/wax. Really added depth to the finish. it was really shiny bright before ONR, then it softened the shine into what you see there.


    Thanks for the compliments!

    JRock, that detail and tint-job looks really good, nice depth and wetness in the curves on the body. I'm sure the customer had to be thrilled with the result! Great job, Dude! :bigthumb:


    (BTW - 404 error: supercar not found) :mamoru: I had to say it. :p
