If you put the photos into photobucket and then copy/paste the IMG link that should work. Works for me.

Bingo!
And a very nice car at that. The 991 really looks great in cabriolet. More so than any other variant IMO.

Nice car and welcome.

personally I wouldn't use a pressure washer on a fabric roof.

Enjoy!

Nice motor .....but I would be washing a car like that myself , not entrusting the activity to the local sponge and pressure hose team.....

At least find a decent detailing company who will treat it properly for you.....

Sponges are just not used any more ! It's all moved on from there ...

Do your car a favour , give it some TLC....It will look 100% better if you do .....

Lovely looking car, shame the vandals got their hands on it Sad

I trust that you put them in A&E after their shenanigans with a Halfords sponge Question

My pal took his 997 to one of these outfits a few yrs ago , and when he got home he saw that it had a deep swirl scratch on the back panel form what must of been a stone in the monkeys sponge ,, we even thought it may of been deliberate , as you would be well awear and feel it happening !!

Superb car, excellent colour choice
Please stop using those guys to clean, know of two cars damaged by similar outfits. One used wheel cleaner so strong bubbled off the anodising before he got home. Another had wrong solution used to clean interior dashboard melted, culprit ran off and owners claimed casual labour and didn't know who he was
Remember many not insured Sad

It's funny you should all say not to use the car wash guys. I actually used to be heavily obsessed with washing my own cars. I would not even let someone pull a hose near my cars in case the hose accidentally got pulled up and scratched a panel. I have owned everything from Bentley to Ferrari and all manner in between. My unicorn is the Lambirgini Gallardo. I have been to buy three with money in hand(metaphorically speaking) and even paid for one. There has always been a problem and I have never managed to drive one home ( I digress, sorry back to the point ). As you get older you either get more obsessed or you have to let go a little. I decided to let go as I literally would interview people before they could ever get within an inch of my cars. Now older and wiser it's easier to let the local monkey wash the car BUT I leather it off, don't let them anywhere near the interior NEVER let them put TFR or acids anywhere near the wheels or the bodywork and hand polish the car myself. See the enclosed photo as to the obsession that still exists. My wife thinks I'm mad to wrap up my car for bedtime. I say you still have to have some passions in life. Puts a smile on my face every time I walk past her when I come home at night ....
