Starting with the dirtiest bits, first up is the engine bay.

Copious amounts of Truck Wash then a damn good go with the pressure washer ... Er no!

Careful application of All Purpose Cleaner (APC) working small areas at a time, cold water rinse, blow dried and then ACF50 applied to engine bay and electrical connections.


BB ....
That process has worked really well fella .....looks like new mate ... Great job so far ....
I must watch this thread now ...!will be interesting to see how you get on ...!

These 993s are amazing! I don't know of many cars that would come up this good after 23 years and over 80k miles.

Note: discs will be replaced and callipers still to be painted.

That is amazing work worship

Well not quite 'found' but kept in a barn for a fair few years while my friend carried out a major building project.
He has owned the car since 2001 and now he has a garage again he wants me to give his 993 Cab a full refurbishment.

I thought it would be of interest to show what an improvement could be made.

I've got my work cut out on this one but as a big 993 fan I know it will be worth it Cool

Note. It will not be going up for sale afterwards.

Bruce I would like to apply to be one of your friends....I have a driveway find C4S that I could do with you showing me what an improvement you could make on it for me......... Grin

Very impressive work sir!

This part has taken quite a while to get to a point I'm happy with.

This is what I call a Heavy Duty Deep Clean!

First I removed all that could be removed then blew out the interior with an airline, then vacuum up as much as possible, apply enzyme eater to all fabrics (not leather), allow it to digest all the matter it can, then all surfaces washed down with a mild APC, rinsed, dried. Leather cleaned, dried and dye applied to scuffed areas (multiple times). Apply protection to leather and other surfaces and vacuum again. Phew!

What products have you used on the job, it would be good to get a list of what you have used in all areas.


well done good work, if you fancy a working holiday in Scotland I have a C2 project that I am just starting that looks much the same as the one your doing.

I knew the interior was bad but until the exterior was cleaned properly and under the lights I didn't know what condition the paintwork was in.

Needless to say it wasn't good!

Given a big budget, a glass out, bare metal re-spray is the way to go but as we don't have that a 2 stage machine polish will work wonders for a fraction of the price.

The fabric hood was cleaned first and re-proofed.

Then the body work was pre-soaked, hose rinsed, 2 bucket washed, rinsed, dried and fallout remover applied to the whole car (it turns red when it comes into contact with metal contaminates in the paintwork, see pics), then rinsed off again, dried, tar remover applied to lower third. Tar removed, rinsed and then clay barred and a final wash, rinse and dry.

Next, up on the ramp and masking done before starting the machine polishing stages. Paint thickens readings were taken from all over the bodywork before starting on the many localised blemishes and scratches to see what could be done to lessen them. Then a 2 stage machine polish was conducted on the whole bodywork to remove most of the wash swirls and random scratches keeping a constant eye on the paint thickness.

The car will now go on to have a 3 layer gloss & protection applied. Products are still to be decided but probably either Zaino or a Gtecniq or a combination of both.

Amazing transformation so far and a real credit to you.
I'd really appreciate it if you could list a few of the products you used to clean the interior trim panels as I've just realised how dusty dirty mine are due to the roof being open a lot of the time!
Thanks v much Smile

All the trim, vinyl and carpets were cleaned with Bilt Hamber SurfexHD diluted 30-1.

There are lots of good products you could use that would work well, the important thing is to follow the instructions.

Remember, technique is more important than product.
