    Red Porsche Carrera...

    I finally found my missing camera in time for a nice detail I did for a friend...
    This is a Red Porsche I offered a friend to do on me to make it look better, and to have the opportunity to try out my newest product; Blackfire Wet Diamond, All Finish Paint Protection Sealant made in Germany. Love this product!
    The process was pretty basic, it was a medium detail for what I was intending to do; claybar, Menzerna, and Blackfire. I did some mild correction work as I went, but again, that was not my main goal, though I was able to bring the paint back to respectability with about 85% of defects removed...
    That being said, here are some before and after pics...

    Rear louver after treated with Duragloss 265, polish and seal



    More before shots...







    Fender after claybar

    Fender after correction, and rest of afters...

    Prices vary from state to state and from business to business
    A basic detail like that should run about $150.00 and up
    A lot have to be taken into consideration; the condition of the paint, how much correction will be needed because this will dictate the process a detailer will have to follow to meet your expectations

    Anything that says good on dark colors, usually includes red
    I'm yet to find a product that looks great on black that wouldn't equally look great on red...

    You can polish a turd but in the end you still have a turd.

    A friend of mine just bought a 90's Blazer for his 15 year-lod son. Man, that thing is a rust bucket, the paint is oxidized and I offered to give it a quick buffing to shine the turd up
    Should be interesting...

    I really need to call around and ask some car guys.

    If there were someone locally around here on the forums like yourself it would be excellent.. but not so much..
