  1. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    Hello! Been looking for an answer to what I thought was a fairly simple issue but have turned up absolutely no results anywhere. Recently I noticed that the black edge guides of my soft top have some paint chips. I suspect they're from a recent car wash and not from regular use, as I haven't...

    After a lot of on-line research, trial and error using an ABS test piece, I have documented the following to remove the Soft-touch coating and repaint the Porsche ABS plastic. It worked well for me, but the process does take time. The Soft touch is easily removed using DOT 3 brake fluid...

    Getting ready to paint the calipers (in-place). While I'm at it, taking care of cleaning up the wheels, wheel wells, rust around the rotors and lug nuts etc. The nuts now look very good after soaking in Evopo-Rust overnight but the paint on them is not in good condition. So, thinking of painting...

    I noticed the dealers don't have any kind of touch up paint for the silver pieces of the interior. Wanted to touch up some of the chips around the base of the shift gate. Has anyone found a particular paint/tone that matches?
  7. 987 Cayman and Boxster Problems and Complaints
    I bought an unloved 987 cayman nearly a year ago and have been slowly nursing it back to health. I am now getting round to the tail lights which I had at first written off as condensation however after looking closer at them to tackle the problem I have realised that in fact it is the inside...

    I have an 07 CS with a Basalt Black Metallic paint job. I noticed a few small chips just below my driver side door. I think the landscaping crew at my office got too close with the weed wacker and shot some pebbles into my car grrrrrr. I was going to get the touch up paint at suncoast, but i...

    I’m painting my 987 center console to match the outer car body. Would like to also paint the faceplate of the climate controls and the faceplate of the CDR-24 to match but concerned that removing the faceplates would release contact pads and springs on the rocker switches I may never get back...

    I just had a full detail done on my Boxster; paint correction, polish, interior, the works. Everything looks beautiful, except for my scuffed up inner sills. I've got to pull the drivers side out to replace my trunk switch anyway, so I'm considering buffing and refinishing the sills using one of...

    Hey everyone, I wanted some suggestions for an indoor car cover. I have my car parked in an indoor underground garage, and a couple of times I've had water leaks from the ceiling onto my car. I wanted an indoor cover primarily for dust protection, but since there are sometimes water leaks, I...

    Any recommendations for a good self car wash facility in NJ to use during the Winter? I'd rather not take it to a hand car wash place. And its too cold to do on my driveway. Mainly interested in getting the undercarriage cleaned. I can use waterless wash (Chemical guys eco) for the paint...

    Felt the need to take on the "paint the calipers" project, so after removing all four calipers and multiple cleanings to stop the brake fluid seep I tried the G2 brush paint epoxy. Warning for the perfectionist!! I applied the epoxy paint and during the third coat I could see this wasn't going...

    I need some advice here. I was traveling down I-85 last month and a dump truck had some gravel blow out from under his tarp which peppered my car. I went from the standard chips on the bottom of the hood to a sandblasted bumper, hood, both front fenders and both rear quarter panels. I...

    Hi everyone, I'm buying a used car and thought it may be a good idea to use a paint meter to check the panels. I don't own one, so I looked around and found this one on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XC7XK76/ Would anyone have any comments on that paint meter? I guess the main thing I...
