2009 Porsche 911 C4S Car Detailing
To begin we performed a full decontamination car wash starting with a pre-wash foam cannon wash to loosen the debris and make it easy to remove. After this initial wash, we worked on iron removal (a.k.a. "rail dust") then removed the tar and other surface residue with chemical cleaners.
Old paint protection film (PPF) was removed from the front of the car. The car had PPF on the front bumper and a partial film on the front quarter of the hood and fenders.
The paint was in pretty poor condition. A lot of swirls and scratches over almost every part of the car. We did a full two-stage paint correction to polish out the scratches and swirls which weren't too deep. The polishing work turned this dull grey paint into a deep, amazing, wet-looking black vehicle once again.
New PPF was then applied to the full front end for maximum coverage and to eliminate any seam lines. The rockers were also protected as these vehicles are prone to rock damage in that area from the sticky performance tires.
The vehicle was finally protected with one of the finest waxes available, Swissvax OBSSSSD Luxury Carnauba Show Wax.
We then did all the final details and touch-ups using the best detailing products and techniques to make the final presentation to client in the Auto Obsessed Clean Room.

What was done
Exterior Car Wash
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.
Decontamination Car Wash
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
We applied a layer of natural carnauba wax as a last step for this detail. Note how the carnauba wax gives the paint a warm glow, with gorgeous gloss and depth of color. Auto Obsessed uses the best car wax, we source boutique-quality carnauba waxes for the most beautiful look and strong durability.
Paint Protection Film
Paint protection film, sometimes called “3M film” or simply “PPF”, provides physical protection against rock chips, scratches, sand abrasion, and the elements of everyday driving. We installed a premium paint protection film onto this vehicle. Note its exceptional gloss. This PPF has self-healing properties, it’s non-yellowing, and will provide long protection to the owner.
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.
