1991 Porsche 964 Carrera RS Clubsport NGT (Tribute) Car Detailing
This Porsche 964 RS Clubsport tribute, named Gemini, has been three years in the making. Several builders have worked on creating this amazing car. Gemini was received at Auto Obsessed just after being completed.
The owner wanted us to go over the car and give it a full treatment so he could put it on the streets and run some well-deserved miles with this incredible machine.
We performed a full decontamination car wash to remove any surface contaminants and to prepare the paint for a full paint correction that would remove any scratches, swirls and enhance the final gloss and appearance of the paint.
We did a full interior detailing and cleaned and protected the custom leather work with OBSSSSD Leather products. A wheel-off detail was done to protect the Speedline wheels with a ceramic coating. The coating will preserve and make it much easier to clean and maintain the wheels.
We installed a full livery decal package, based on Mika Häkkinen's 1993 Porsche 964 Cup Car, onto Gemini. The car was then protected with a ceramic coating before delivery to the owner, who has patiently waited three years for this car to be built and completed.
See the video of this car, our test drive, and more details in the link at the bottom of this write-up.
Whether a vehicle is driven everyday or just parked in a garage, dirt and dust contaminants will fall onto the surface. This layer of dirt dulls the appearance of the vehicle. If you contact or rub dirty paint, it can mar or become scratched. Not desirable! We thoroughly washed this vehicle to ensure the contaminants were safely removed. Auto Obsessed detailers use automotive shampoos that are specifically formulated to encapsulate and lift the dirt off the vehicle without marring the paint and glass. Our exterior wash service includes the exterior body, door jambs, engine bay, exhaust, wheels, and wheel wells / fender liners.
An initial car wash will not be able to remove contaminants that are bonded or embedded in the paint. With this decontamination stage, iron particles (which appear as small brown rust spots), tar splatter, tree sap, water spots, paint overspray, and other contaminants were removed using a combination of chemicals and or natural/synthetic detailing clay bar. After a decontamination car wash, the paint is ready to be corrected with a polishing stage, or finished with protective film, ceramic coatings, carnauba waxes, or sealants.
The skilled art of paint correction polishing, sometimes known as “buffing”, is the detailing process that makes the most dramatic change in how a car or truck looks. Blemishes and damage on the paint make a vehicle’s paintwork appear dull, flawed, and aged. Paint correction removes scratches, swirl marks, water spots, etchings, fading, and oxidation. The damaged surface layer is polished away to make the paint smooth and perfectly reflective again. After polishing, this paint was in perfect condition. At this point, the vehicle is ready for paint protection film to be installed, or for a ceramic coating, sealant, or carnauba wax to be applied
Wheels are chronically dirty. They get covered in brake dust and coated with road grime. We removed the wheels from this vehicle to get them properly cleaned and decontaminated. After cleaning, we protected all surfaces of the rim, spokes, the interior barrel of the wheel, and even the lug nut holes with a wheel wax or ceramic coating. The benefit of this protective layer is that the wheels will now be much easier to clean. Very easy maintenance! When we have the wheels off the car, we detail the wheel wells, brake calipers, and suspension components. The brake calipers are also coated before the wheels are refitted.
Our interior detailing services are customizable. Client requests can range from a simple low-level interior detail to a complete restorative interior service. Auto Obsessed detailers thoroughly go through all areas of the interior to clean and detail. The result is that the vehicle’s fabrics, leather, plastic and metal trim, controls, gauges, glass, carpet, and luggage areas all look as close to new as possible. Look at these interior photos. This clean, fresh interior now looks like a very nice place to spend time. When we do an interior detail for new cars, the interior is brought up to the level that a new car should look when it’s delivered.
Leather seats, arm rests, and steering wheels get dirty with skin oils and grime. Dirty leather looks shiny, hard, and worn. It ages the interior before its time! Leather upholstery is a luxury option. We cleaned and conditioned this leather to restore a soft, luxurious feeling in this cabin. Note how the hard-looking shine on the leather is gone. The leather has been brought back to its original matte look. This leather looks luxurious again! The cleaning and conditioning improved its look. The protection from the conditioning will make the leather last longer, and make it easier to clean in the future.
“Last Step Product” or “Last Step Protection” is where we apply either a carnauba wax, paint sealant, or ceramic coating to the exterior painted surfaces. This stage is important to add gloss and protection to your vehicle. We will work with you to determine which treatment will best match your preferences and your vehicle’s usage.
After we have completed the detailing services that were requested, it is time for inspection in the Auto Obsessed Clean Room. The highly lit room with the white walls, floor, and ceiling allows us to inspect under the most unforgiving conditions so we can make any final touches needed. By doing the finishing touches we are confirming your vehicle meets our standards but exceeds yours through completing a full vehicle walkaround, checking all the areas worked on. The finishing touches adds yet another level of detail to your vehicle from dressing the tires to making your vehicle windows crystal clear or ensuring your vehicle’s shine and protection.
