    I love a perfectly wet black car- Black Porsche Turbo with a superiorest shine!!!

    Reasons my thread is better then Joe's.

    1) I don't shorten my name from Todd to Toe, like Jose does to Joe.
    2) See section below, I post a process
    3) I have actual before and after photos
    4) I use a better camera
    5) I don't pose in front of the car's I do
    6) This car looks wetter because it is getting rained on.
    7) I took pictures of the car as it was getting rained on.
    8) This Porsche has aftermarket turbo's, inter cooler, ECU, and exhaust. It makes more horsepower.
    9) Because I am so very humble....


    Process:

    In all seriousness, this Porsche was pretty easy to work on.


    I washed it with Eimann Fabrik Auto Spa and clayed with while wet using Meguiar's Blue Detailer clay with Last Touch as lube. The wheels where cleaned with 10:1 Wheel Brightner and tires and wheel wells where cleaned with Eimann Fabrik Tire Cleaner.

    Polishing was pretty straight forward. 1-2 passes of Meguiar's M105 UCC with a Meguiar's SoftBuff2.0 Cutting pad followed by 1 pass of Meguiar's M205 Ultrafinishing Polish on a Classic Flat Orange Pad, and finished with 1 pass of Menzerna PO85rd on a Classic Flat Black Pad, all by rotary. Total time spent polishing was less then 7 hours.

    After polishing the wheels, paint, and class where sealed with Klasse AIO. I topped with paint with an old can of Blackfire Batch 23 wax afterwards. The tires where dressed with Blackfire Tire Gel, and the wheel wells got a douse of Meguiar's Last Touch 4:1.

    The interior was cleaned with Blackfire Interior Cleaner and the leather (everywhere) was protected with blackfire Leather Protectant. The interior glass was cleaned with Meguiar's Detailer Line Glass Cleaner Concentrate.

    Before picture





    A couple of sun shots after polishing...







    When I was all done I pulled the car outside. As I set up for the final shots, it began to drizzle. Never won to let a light drizzle stand in the way of reflection shots I fired away.
