Truly a showstopper, this 1978 Porsche 911 Turbo in black over black is in for a complete paint restoration from our experts. You can watch shop owner doing the exact same process on a Guard's Red 911 in this video.
Here you can see the process Jack and the staff have gone through to begin correcting this paint. After the photos of the car being washed you can see the close-up under the driver’s mirror. This paint had some consistent issues throughout the entire body. Against the light’s reflection you can see what look like little dimples. This is not consistent with original Porsche paint, so Jack took off! Here you can really see Jack’s mastery at work. Using just the right pressure to pull those dimples without going through the original Porsche paint.
The next few photos show Jack polishing the door, with a few different pads, and of course he had to look over the master’s work. He also got a little aggressive with the turbo flares, working to get years of dust, dirt and debris out of the textured material.
We will follow the paint restoration with a ceramic coating. This process creates a very thin and very hard coating over the paint surface, repelling dirt and contaminants for months and months.
Stay tuned as this beauty gets even prettier.
