- Wheel wells were spritzed down with P21S Total Autowash
- Wash down and rinsed
- Door jambs were cleaned up
- Clayed

- Wheel Wells were cleaned and dressed with Adam's Undercarriage Spray
- Tires dressed with Swissvax Pneu
- Rear cab window was cleaned up
- Masking
- 3 Step Paint correction (Meguiars M105 with an Uber Yellow, Menzerna Super Intensive Polish with an Uber Green and Menzerna PO85RD with an Uber Blue)

lol, nice! Looks just like the before and after shots of my car. I didn't detail it for two years after I bought it. The dealer had supposedly detailed it, and ended up putting more swirls in it then it had before. I spent an entire weekend fixing it.

Awesome work man!

Simply awesome! Was the paint hard? Every German car I've worked on has had very hard paint but Suby paint is very soft.

yup tons of chips on my subie when I had it, not much on Porsches unless they are tracked or do a ton of highway driving behind a tractor trailer.
