Previously, the owner had us treat his 2016 Porsche Boxster Spyder to a New Car Detail with Gtechniq Protective Coatings and Xpel Paint Protection Film. He was very impressed with the results and having seen the benefits arranged to have his new Porsche 991.2 GT3 treated.
The first job upon arrival was to wash down the car using our super-safe 2 bucket wash procedure to rid the car of some of the contaminants it could have picked up.
Although this Porsche 991 GT3 is new there were lots of sanding marks and buffer induced holograms on both front and rear bumpers along with the rear spoiler and deck lid, these came from the factory during the paint stages. These DA sanding marks and haze resulted in a very dull flat finish.
With paint measurements taken the next step was to settle on a polish and pad combination that would remove as much defects as possible whilst also removing as little clear coat as possible.
The badges had to be removed to get the rear perfect! New set of badges were ordered
More DA sanding marks and haze found on the spoiler and deck lid.
The spoiler was removed so we could polish the area fully to ensure all defects were completely removed, this wouldn’t have been possible with the spoiler attached due to clearance.
Once the cutting stages were completed the whole car was machine polished with a fine polish to increase the gloss and clarity and leave a superior shine.
SunTek Ultra Paint Protection Film – Porsche 991.2 GT3
With the miami blue paintwork now free of imperfections it was then time to apply some PPF (paint protection film) to some areas of the Porsche. The customer requested we protect the bonnet, bumper, front wings, side skirts, A-pillars and side mirrors with paint protection film to protect these vulnerable areas from stone chips and other minor abrasions. On this install we used SunTek Ultra which is self healing along with having a innovative, low surface energy top coat which increases stain resistance and product longevity by limiting water and dirt accumulation on the film’s surface. SunTek Ultra is backed by a manufacturer’s ten-year warranty.

The remaining paintwork which wasnt covered in paint protection film was protected with Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light. Once cured Crystal Serum Light is virtually impervious to harsh wash chemicals, industrial and environmental fallout.
After Crystal Serum Light had cured EXO V3 was applied on top (including the paint protection film). This top layer sealant adds an extra level of slickness whilst increasing the hydrophobic properties of the final finish.
The glass was treated with G1 ClearVision Smart Glass. This coating forms a hydrophobic barrier which causes rain water to roll in to beads on contact which improves visibility in wet weather.
The wheels and brake calipers were coated with Gtechniq C5 Alloy Wheel Armour. This coating bonds with the wheels surface to provide comprehensive protection from road grime and brake dust build-up and makes cleaning easier and negates the requirement for strong acid or alkaline-based cleaners.
We topped Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour with C2v for added protection.
Interior was given a vacuum and wiped down along with treating the fabric upholstery with Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric and the leather surfaces with Gtechniq L1 Leather Guard
Once the finishing checks and touches were made, the GT3 was ready for its new owner to go and enjoy without the worry of picking up any stone chips.
