Over the last weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting G and watching him work his magic over my 993. I bought the car based upon its (hopefully!) excellent mechanical care - however, the previous owners do seem to have been less up on the essentials of paint protection.

As a result of this, the flat black paint was a myriad of swirls and scratches, that cast a worried look over G's brow when he arrived early on Friday morning! Nevertheless, working past 9pm on Friday, till 7.30pm on Sat, and putting in another 6 hours on the Sunday, G has completely transformed the look of the pain on the motor.

He will fill you in more with the exact process followed, but essentially there was around 1.5 days paint correction, followed by Zymol HD cleanse, and then Zymol wax on top.

The following pictures do not do the finish justice - honestly, if anyone reading this has not been converted to the Elite Detail way of thinking, then they should do!

I'd just like to thank G once again for all his effort and hard work in transforming my 993 back to its former glory!

Bonnet swirls (the entire car was like this)
