Porsche 991 C2S Gyeon Quartz Paint Correction Detail

Porsche 991 C2S Gyeon Quartz Paint Correction Detail.

This lovely 6 year old Porsche 991 Carerra C2S was purchased by a returning client who wanted to take some of the years off the car & make it look spectacular once again. No problem I said & we settled on a 3 day minor paint correction detail with ceramic coating application, Gyeon Quartz MOHS+. He had this applied on the other vehicle I detailed 2 years ago & was very impressed with it, so this time round it was an easy choice to make. The paint correction detail is carried out over 3+ days & includes a 2 stage machine polishing routine, to remove swirls marks & restore clarity to the clear coat.

The safe wash routine was carried out, car blow dried & after inspecting the paintwork with various light sources plus taking paint readings with the Positector paint gauge, I did some testing to find the right combination for this car. As you can see below it was working very well, also polishing right up the edges is important for an excellent job. This is after the initial cutting stage & yet to be refined.

Working on the tighter areas around the car with care for the panel edges on adjacent panels, which is easily done with 3M masking tape.

Looking very nice after the first stage.

At the end of day 2 the first stage was completed on everything except the bumpers which would be taken care of the following morning. Then onto stage 2, refining.

Making progress:

First, I need to take off some old polish residue from someone elses previous polishing attempts.

Intricate areas:

Cleaned

Taped & polished

Trim dressing:

Cleaned of any polishing oils & then treated to a long life trim dressing, Gyeon Quartz Q² Trim.

Getting the most out of these small areas the commercial grade lift I use really comes into its own for this type of work.

After the refining stage was completed, it was time to clean the paintwork & apply the base coats. Gyeon Prep is an excellent cleaner designed specifically for Gyeon Quartz coatings ensuring a polishing oil free surface allowing correct bonding of the coating for maximum durability.
You can also see my hand held LED light source which is used to check each panel after application.

I’ll skip right to the end photo’s as I was running behind with this detail, its very easy to get caught up the work & not pick up the camera especially when the detail is challenging as this car was.

Porsche 991 C2S Gyeon Quartz MOHS+ minor paint correction detail carried out over 4 days. In total this car had a whisker under 50 hours over the 4 days, which is a lot of work. But the hard work was worth it & the owner was over the moon with his beautiful new Porsche.
