Hi , so 3 weeks ago a bought a 997 c4s ,
Drove it 200mile home but have not driven it since ,
Although from a main dealer it just isn’t up to standard so I’ve been a busy bee with the restoration ,
Started with re dye on the cab roof ,
Then added a front splitter
Then compounded the head lights
Then added new rear lights
Then 3 stage compound da buff to rid all the terrible swirl marks out of the so called non scratch able ceramic coat ,

Waiting on a new rear turbo style spoiler then the exterior is complete .

Then to start on the interior with hydro dipping Smile

Pics attached ;( [/list]

Nice job! Very satisfying... currently in mid-detail of mine. Well, I've clayed the front so far.

Paint looked bad before, hopefully the ceramic coating took the brunt of it rather than the clearcoat.

Whoa, I can’t believe they sold a car with those swirls!

What have you re-proofed the roof with? (I’ve had good results in the past with the Autoglym fabric roof kit)

And is the Autoglym EGP a temporary last stage product? I thought on another thread you were considering a sealant?

Looking much better, good work Thumb

Thumb Excellent job.

Can't believe the amount of swirling - looks like someone washed the car with a bucket of gravel. nooo

Nice work, was wondering how long we’d have to wait to see some pics. Self restoration on the roof or called in the expert help? If help they’re charging too much wearing a Rolex Floor

Never seen Renovo sprayed before, like the idea of that. Did you spray the proofer too?
