Default Detailed: 1968 Porsche 912

My neighbor owns this time capsule. He bought it new in 1968. All services have been performed at the same Porsche dealer by the same mechanic. The car has 25,000 original miles. The car is stored in his garage except for the 3 times a year he pulls it out to wipe it down and take it for a short drive. The car was accepted into the intermountain concours d' elegance, so I pleaded with him to let me bring the sparkle back into his paint.

The car is amazingly clean for being 43 years old, but the paint was oxidized a bit and had some swirling due to being wiped down with towels for four decades.


I washed and clayed
Menzerna SIP was used in combination with 4" LC orange pads + PC7424
I then used a blue 6" Edge pad to apply Poorboy's Black Hole (this is an amazing product).
I then topped everything off with a white 6" Edge pad and Wolfgang Sealant
I treated all the exterior trim with Poorboy's Trim Restorer.
Tires were treated with Poorboy's Bold N' Bright.
I 303'd the interior.

The engine needed nothing more than just a quick wipe down with a damp cloth.

I started before the sun was up, so I didn't bother taking some full car before pics because you can't really see anything.

A few before pics







A couple 50/50

Really nice specimen... I'd never be able to keep such low miles on anything. Looks great!

For you young bucks, this is what a true sports car looks like... when they were simple.

Gorgeous car. Beautiful detail job.

I could never have a car like that; I'd drive the **** out of it.

If I ever have to do another vintage 911/912 it will be too soon. I love the cars, but the combination of curves and tight spaces and neglectful owners is too much.


The car looks very nice, you did a good job! My only suggestion would be to go a bit further than a 1-step correction next time.

Not having a paint depth gauge, I didn't want to do too much.

Great job!! Love those vintage Porsches!!

I have a 01' Jetta and 70' Porsche that could use some work. Let me know when you can make it over and I'll fire up the grill and put some drinks on ice. :-)

I bet my uncle wishes his 912 was that clean. I've always wanted to pick up a vintage 911. A simple classic
