    Porsche Cayman S Major Paint Correction by ShowCarDetailing.com

    The owner of this Porsche is a member of Planet-9. He was having his Cayman S maintained by a mobile company at his house and he was looking for something better when he came across a post here from another vendor, Phil at DD in New Jersey. He was wishing there were someone like that locally, and then he came across one of my writeups...and here is yet another writeup on a Porsche in SoCal undergoing our Major Paint Correction services. This was a full wheels off restoration with Opti-Coat and the owner was VERY happy.

    My 3,000sf shop is in the Anaheim Hills area of Anaheim, off Imperial Highway exit off the 91 Freeway.

    Our process starts off with an evaluation to determine what needs to be done to your car and we can show you what different levels of services will look like on your paint from our basic Enhancement Detail (Gloss Enhancement) to 3 Levels of Paint Correction. For PJM_311, we did a Major Paint Correction along with a variety of add-ons specific for his car.

    We are heading to SEMA on Sunday however so we will be closed for the next week. If you are attending SEMA, stop by our booth at #13048 in the North Hall. We will be there under our corporate name-- Detailing Innovations, Inc. with our Black Wow products.

    Amazing work!

    Question: what vehicle lift are you using? Thinking of getting one myself.

    Re: Porsche Cayman S Major Paint Correction by ShowCarDetailing.com

    Since you guys detail cars all the time, and especially black cars, what is your opinion on clear bras? Do they get in the way when you do a job like this?

    ...I was thinking about having one installed, but I did not know what prep would be best for best results before having one installed.

    Bravo on the results, that car looks amazing!

    Re: Porsche Cayman S Major Paint Correction by ShowCarDetailing.com

    Thanks!

    I'm not a fan of clear bras though I totally understand their function and sometimes it's unavoidable if you live . There are many issues and though many installers will dispute this, every car that comes in 9 out of 10 times, the owner wants the clear bra removed after I am done because the film looks worse than the corrected paint. The film has more orange peel and once the owner applies a carnauba wax which yellows the film or has a detailer try to polish the film, it becomes hazy and dull.

    If you are going to get film, do it over the entire hood when you first bring the car home. If you put film on just the front end, eventually when you decide to remove it, you will probably find a color mismatch on the areas that were protected versus those that weren't. This is less of an issue on a solid black paint and more critical with metallic paints which are affected by UV more.

    If you think you will just have the rock chipped front end repainted and do the clearbra then, remember that you will need to let the paint cure for 30 days before you can apply the film...so unless you can park it for 30 days, you might see some rockchips on the newly painted front end before you get the film on.

    I have seen an entire GT3-RS wrapped in film on every exposed area of paint. It doesn't look bad when done properly. Partial film has seams that look ugly and improper waxing and polishing leaves visible buildup along the edges.

    So if you have good film applied, and use a good spray sealant that doesn't leave residue, and you take care of the film yourself, chances are your film will look much better than average.

    Still I prefer not to have film because the paint looks amazing when fully polished and the clearbra areas never look as good. =)
