Hammered 19k mile Porsche - Atlanta Car Detailer Detailed Designs Auto Spa

The owner was a gentleman who was looking to have his wifeís 2001 Porsche Boxter S with 19k miles on it detailed. He had called and visited quite a few car detail shops in Atlanta. But as you can tell from the pictures, this was not a black and white detail situation. There were unique concerns with this car.

He said he spoke with quite a few shops that were much cheaper but after his consultation with me, he decided to use my detailing business Detailed Designs Auto Spa. He later told me that after only 5 minutes of speaking with me face to face he knew he found the right shop. In short, we donít upsell and our goal is to isolate the concern areas and focus on those. In this case, there were a lot of concern areas.

His story went along the lines of this being his wifeís car. It normally gets driven very little during the week by his wife and lives outside.

He didnít want paint correction. He and his wife just wanted shiney and clean.

The deep cleaning and decontamination(fancy words for a mack daddy car wash) took about 7 hours. Paint saw an AIO -Polyseal. Interior got the fully monty. The passenger seat has a bit water stain that didnít budge much. All the knobs and most of the vinyl had cigarette tar covering it. Door jambs and hardware looks about the same as the exterior.

Looks good you did a great job... Can't see how some people just don't care for their vehicles..especially when they cost so much... Nevertheless it looks good now..

Which AIO do you use?

Do you have an AIO recommendation for a Tacoma like yours (silver)?

Thanks.

Edit: I see you used PolySeal. Any particular version?

I thank you for the cars who endure this abuse and have no voice to call for help.
