    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    You’ll love the RS. It’s so much fun to drive. And you don’t have to track to enjoy it.

    Congratulations!

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Some proper pics of the car from our local C&C Saturday.  It was only 2-3C, but couldn’t pass up opportunity to take her out.  Love how UV changes with different lighting.

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    UV is a very interesting color but only when the car is very clean . So perfect for you indecision

    As soon as the car is dirty , the color becomes bland and looses it s effect . 

    Those photos are beautiful and you must be thrilled with the car .......

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Yeah I don't expect I'll have to worry too much about it looking bland when dirty Smiley

    I'm loving the car, just wish the weather here would cooperate, going to be -7C or colder for the next couple days.  Fingers crossed the weekend is warmer.

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    The only reason I'm reluctant to sell my GT3RS is because I'm in love with the UV color.

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    Well finally time to paint correct the purple beast.  First off the initial strip wash.  I use 3 soaps for this step.  The Adams is my usual ph neutral soap I use for maintenance washes.  It and the AMMO boost go into the wash bucket.  The AMMO soap will neutralize any road salts on the car and help prevent water spotting.  Adams is just for lubrication.  Finally the Citrus Wash, which is a stupid name as the soap is actually basic, is used to remove any existing waxes or sealants that may be on the car.  Also shown is the pressure washer and water filtration system I use.

    Before the actual wash, of course start with cleaning wheels and tires.  Use rubber prep to remove the annoying silicone goop the dealerships put on the tires.

    D98F660F-882C-4D00-9AC6-0C1ED51940D6.jpeg

    Next after rinsing off the car foam it with the Citrus Wash.  This is the one time I believe foam serves a purpose.  Letting it dwell on the paint a little longer allows it to better strip off anything on the paint.

    5C09179C-6863-4341-8ACD-65D97184DD89.jpeg

    Next washed off the car as you would normally and rinsed it off.  Left the car wet and sprayed on Iron X to remove any iron deposits that may be embedded in the paint that washing won’t remove.  Don’t want to polish the paint with little pieces of iron stuck in the paint.  Rinsed off the paint again and then clayed the non-ppf sections of the car.  It’s amazing how much crap is still on the paint even after all the washing.  Tonight I’ll let the car dry completely and then tape up the trim and start polishing tomorrow.

    Re: New to me 991.1 GT3

    While I don't share your passion for cleaning the car it is super interesting to see how many steps to the wash you can do for different purposes, I had no idea. Thanks for sharing!wink

    You make me feel guilty though, your car before you wash it is already cleaner than mine after I get done washing it lol. I think I need to take some notes...

    Buy a car with a matte color and you'll see how complicated washing/cleaning can get. I barely wash my E63S because it is a pain in the ass. Smiley Smiley

    Matte colors need a special cleaning agent, lots of work, not pretty.
