Full Detail: Porsche Cayman S
Good day everyone! I know it has been almost a month since the teaser, but good things come to those who wait and here it is! There’s a HD movie at the end of the post.
Started with the wheels as usual. Osren Degreaser FX (diluted 2:1), Osren Tar Remover and CarPro IronX was used. First time with the IronX, it works and does changes colour when in contact with brake dust, very useful for getting those hard to reach areas or unreachable areas. However, I didn’t find it to be a more effective cleaner compared with Meguiar’s Wheel Brightener, which is acidic. IronX isn’t exactly cheap, but for a non-acidic cleaner, this is probably as good as it gets, if you have non-clearcoated wheels, this would be a good solution to get them clean. Old wheel weight residue removed with Osren Tar Remover.
Bodywork is washed with with Osren Nano Wash, using Lake Country Big Blue sponge, cut into two. They should come pre-cut already, it’s so much easier to hold and use, also gets into the cracks where the actual sized Big Blue could not. Paint is smoothened with Osren Magic Clay Cloth, followed by Osren Tar Remover on the lower panels. Lastly, IronX is used, it dissolved iron particles in areas where the Clay Cloth couldn’t reach, such as the emblems and door handle cracks.
Paintwork had the usual car wash swirls and nothing major.
Correction process was:
- Compound with Meguiar’s #105 Ultra Cut Compound on a Lake Country Purple Foamed Wool/4-Ply Twisted wool via rotary polisher at ~1500rpms.
- Polished with Meguiar’s #205 Ultra Finishing Polish on a Lake Country White Kompressor Pad via rotary polisher at ~1500 rpms.
- Finished with G|Techniq P1 Nanoscopic Polish on a Lake Country Black finishing pad via dual-action polisher at speed 5-6.
Head lights and tail lights correction combo same as paintwork. Coated with G|Techniq C1 Crystal Lacquer.
After about 16 hours of machine polishing, all tapes were removed and car was given a good rinsing to remove all the polishing dust. Panel edges were polished with M105 to remove dried compound residue. Intricate areas were polished with G|Techniq P1 Nanoscopic Polish.
Wheels were polished with G|techniq P1 Nanoscopic Polish with Detailogy(orange cutting pad) on Dodo Juice DA. Coated with G|Techniq C5 Wheel Armour.
Floor mats were cleaned with Meguiar’s All Purpose Cleaner (diluted 4:1) and extracted out. Protected with G|Techniq I1 Smart Fabric. Leather cleaned with Osren Leather Cleaner and protected with Meguiar’s Rich Leather Cleaner/Conditioner and G|Techniq L1 Leather Guard.
Paint was then coated with G|Techniq C1 Crystal Lacquer. Tires dressed with Soft99 Tire Dressing. Some flash photos.
Fast forward one week and the car was washed and given a quick spray coating with G|Techniq C2 Liquid Crystal. The owner also did some aesthetic changes such as Carbon Fibre sticker to the front lip splitter and blacked out the tail lights.
Enjoy the after shots below!
A nearby car was starting to feel jealous and decided steal the limelight, haha! Love the looks.
After the shoot, it was about 3 am and we went to have some drinks and toast bread. Totally delish after sweating through the shoot.

Should seal the car with opti-coat 2.0 after the hard work.
I’m still testing the opti-coat. I am not sure how it performs yet so I’d rather stick to something that I’ve tested and how it will react with our local climate.
Have you tried the opti-coat 2.0?
More beading shots will be better!! Anyway, great work on the por-che.
Thanks dude! Now where’s my royalty fees from Osren…hahhaha jkjk
