Porsche 993 Turbo's Transformation at Auto Trilogy, Bristol
In the realm of automotive excellence, the Porsche 993 Turbo holds a revered spot, embodying a blend of classic design and formidable performance. However, even icons aren't immune to the ravages of time and the elements. This was the case with a particular 993 Turbo that rolled into our care as a Bristol-based car detailing and paint protection specialist.
Upon arrival, the vehicle's paintwork bore the tell-tale signs of age: swirl marks and surface marring, likely the cumulative effect of years of washing and exposure. Our team at Auto Trilogy embarked on a meticulous 21-stage safe wash and full decontamination of the paintwork, setting the stage for a transformative full paint correction detail.
The correction process is a painstaking endeavour, designed to eliminate imperfections and restore the vehicle's paint to its original lustre. This is not merely a superficial clean but a deep and thorough rejuvenation of the vehicle's skin. The result was a richer depth of shine, a testament to the time spent and the quality of the tools we use.
The vehicle was then treated to a full Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light Ceramic Coating. This high-performance product offers a robust layer of protection against the elements, preserving the paint's newfound perfection. The coating is known for its chemical resistance and durability, forming a bond with the paint that is resistant to extreme heat changes, from -40 to +250 degrees Celsius.
Advanced Ceramic Coating Technology
To further enhance the protection, the team applied Gtechniq Exo V5, a topcoat that adds another layer of defence against the elements and aids in the water beading process. This not only contributes to the vehicle's aesthetic but also makes future cleaning and upkeep a breeze. The Exo V5 is renowned for its ultra-durable hydrophobic finish, ensuring that water and contaminants do not linger on the surface.
Full Interior Detail
The interior did not escape attention; it underwent a thorough deep clean, with Gtechniq Leather Guard applied to preserve and protect the leather surfaces. The wheels were also removed, deep cleaned, and coated with Gtechniq C5 Alloy Wheel Armour, ensuring every detail of the vehicle was brought back to its best.
Benefits of this Work
Firstly, there's the visual transformation – the car's appearance is not just restored but enhanced. The depth and quality of the shine after such a detail can often surpass the original factory finish. Secondly, there's the preservation of value. A well-maintained vehicle, especially one with paint protected against the elements, can command a higher resale price. Lastly, there's the joy of ownership. Driving a car that looks and feels new adds a level of pleasure and pride to the experience of owning a classic like the Porsche 993 Turbo.
In conclusion, the case of the Porsche 993 Turbo at our premises is a prime example of how expert detailing and advanced protective treatments can rejuvenate a classic vehicle. It stands as a testament to the craftsmanship and attention to detail that we brings to our work, and the advanced protective properties of Gtechniq's range of products. This Porsche is not just preserved; it's primed to continue its legacy on the road, looking as timeless as ever.
