    Porsche 914-6

    I detailed this Porsche last month. (Dang, I have like 18 cars I've done I haven't had a chance to upload the pics and post here )

    This one looked ok, but I was kind of alarmed once I started to clay bar it. I washed it good, and I still was blown away by the amount of crap this car had on the finish...
    Mt guess is that it has never been polished
    The paint is a single stage paint (no clear-coat)

    -Wash
    -Clay bar (Zaino)
    -Polished with Menzerna SIP
    -Followed up with BF Gloss Enhancer
    -Topped with BF Wet Diamond Sealant
    -Duragloss 101 on the wheels
    -1Z Rubber and Vinyl treatment on the tires

    Before:
    BTW, this before pics were before clay bar. Looks can be deceiveing!)






    A look at the clay bar after using one side. Yikes!








    AFTERS:

    for being as plain looking as that car is, it has a serious set of rims and tires on it

    Nice and shiney! But IMO that is one of the most ugly Porche's I've ever seen.. To each their own though.....

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    what color was the paint, like a pale red/orange? Was it even 2 stage?

    do i see an optional booster seat on the passenger floor?

    This guy collects Porsches
    The color is almost like the Z06 Torch Red but with more orange tint in it
    It looks red under normal lighting. It looks orangish under some lighting...

    You think so?
    I'm not sure if those are actually the original set or not...
    They look great once they get clean up, though

    The guy is a car collector. More specific he's big time into Porsches
    Did you see the collection he has?
    There's a blue one that was actually driven in 1973 by Allison, I think it was Bobby Allison in an IROC race
    It's the blue one in the middle...still has the Allison name on the white banner across the top of the windshield

    I used to own a 914-4 cyl. (I restored it in high school in '96). Not the prettiest cars, but they handle like you wouldn't believe! The 6 cyl cars were known to break flywheel bolts, and supposedly they were out performing the 911/912, which was supposed to be Porsche's top-of-the-line. Sticker price was around $3,000 if I remember correctly. I'm envious of his collection...

    Thanks, Goose! This really takes me back. Do you remember the year? Was the black Targa top in good condition?
