Check out the picture where the car is being backed out of the truck. See that black spot on the right bumper boob? That is water that dripped on it from the truck. Tells you how much dust is on it. I didn't take any close up shots on purpose, this is a good 10 footer that I won't be afraid to drive and park. That was one thing that kept me from enjoying the red car, the paint is too nice.

Congrats on your purchase Brian. You sound like you got the car of your dreams. I'm partial to black/charcoal slantnoses. Good choice!

Find a good detailer in your area and let him do his magic. Might be money well spent.

Nice looking car by the way...

I bet that was the same car I was dreaming about a while back. I was pretty close to pulling the trigger, but it just was not the right time for me. I think the charcoal gray is just " right" on that slant. I will be following this thread, anxious to see it's transformation.
It is so exciting getting a new ride, bringing it back up to snuff, and unraveling all it's past secrets.

Great find Brian!!!,

I use all the same products as JFairman and in south florida they work the best!

After the vaseline soaks in I use Meguiars Natural Shine Protectant its great and not shiny its great on all rubber and vinyl!!
On the paint. wash the car very good then buy a clay bar kit. It removes years of debris and road grime. Then for the buffing I use 3M Ultrafine Machine Polish part #06068

I use it with a foam pad and it will leave no swirl marks and a bowling ball shine!! you can hand polish with this product as well its the best for clear coat finish! Then put a good coat of Carnauba wax I use Meguirers #26 yellow wax

Be sure to tape off all the rubber before buffing and waxing. nothing worst the wax stuck in all the rubber on a 930!!!

Good Luck! and all the parts you sold me are still running strong!

Clark

kilodawg and mark houghton got you covered on the products to use for the interior. For the exterior, I would just get some Mother's clay and cleaner, followed by 3M Imperial Hand Glaze (don't let it dry!), followed by One Grand Blitz wax. The key is to get the paint as clean as possible (clay and multiple passes of the hand glaze will do this), then various layers of wax will give it the depth and shine you are after. There are quite a few detailing forums you can gather some ideas from, but at the end of the day, it is all about being meticulous with details (think Q tips for air vents..). Here is an example: http://www.detailingbliss.com/forum/pro-studio/31784-detailers-domain-30-hours-porsche-cayenne.htm


Turbo Tales and I were typing at the same time and think much alike!

Congratulations on the purchase!

Brian... NICE! What a great story! Made me feel good just reading it. Good for you, congrats - great to see you so elated. Exciting stuff.

Great find! I hear you about drivers vs. show cars. I prefer drivers too. Show cars are like a curse - no thanks.

One of my fave colors, I call it cammo - as in... the color of the road. Blend right in 8-).

I tend to agree w/ the suggestion to pay a local pro something like $100-150 and let him bring out all the good within. Gives you a SOLID baseline from which to then improve / maintain.

DIY is fun too, but if it's not your strongpoint (detailing) then something needing that much attention will benefit from pro hands for the heavy work.

So happy for you, congrats again. Too funny, mine's loaded onto a rig as yours unloads.

Enjoy my friend - you certainly deserve it.

I agree 100% on the clay bar. I did this on my car that sat for a few years collecting dust, dirt, etc. and it made the paint look brand new again. It is a process, but it was well worth the work.

I hope you're just kidding here... EFI is light years simpler, wayyy more accurate, and totally adjustable and adaptive and just keeps getting better as the electronics evolves.

Brian, I'd wipe all the rubber down with lacquer thinner to remove all of the oxidized material before you treat it. The 303 Aerospace protectant is really nice stuff.
