The 911 Years: Detail and Paint Correction!
The 911 has been in for it’s bath! Tony Spears from AutoShine valeting has sorted out the paintwork good and propper.
Tony works from a specialist detailing bay, inside the premises of the Revolution Porsche specialist centre. He needed my car for a week to give it the love and attention that it deserves. The car looked good anyway, but it was missing that pazzaz. It definately needed a bit of TLC from the professionals, with swirl marks evident in the paintwork. Being a black car, it shows up all of the imperfections and I wanted it looking like new again.
In addition, Revolution said they would sort out my interior trim bit which hadn’t been fitted correctly, and top up my oil as well whilst they were at it. So the car was dropped off Monday morning and Spearsy got to work, with photo updates being provided on a daily basis via the Autoshine facebook page – a nice touch that allows you to see what is being done to your car as it happens!
Friday arrived and it was time for collection. The gallery below shows the “before”, “during”, “half-and-half” – and “after” pictures. And what a transformation! When I collected the car it looked pretty much brand new – the shine was an exmplorary mirror finish. Through Tony’s inspections, it is clear that the car has had a lot of paint during its life, but it has all been a good job and Tony’s attention to detail in the paint restoration means that you really can’t tell where the paint has been applied.
Inside, the car smells good and the leather upholstery feels supple again. The wheels have been fully cleaned and looked brand new, as does the engine which is gleaming. I’m hugely impressed with the results! Thanks Tony!
The Revolution guys have also done a great job – the falty interior trim now fits perfectly, the oil is full and in a surprise finding on the way home they have also tighened up the handbrake!
The overall result of all of this care and attention means that I feel like I have a new car now – rather than buying a high mile used model. It now feels like ‘my car’ and I’m really satisfied with my purchase!
About Revolution Porsche
I had been to Revolution previously, when Russ called me to tell me about the new business venture and invited me for a look around the new workshop, customer areas and reception. He told me their future plans, with strong customer satisfaction being a core principle and will undoubtably make this fledgling company one of the best in the business. The customer care and service that I have received to date has been excellent and the price is extremely competative. If your car needs servicing – or if you just want to chew the fat on all things Porsche-like, Revolution should be your first port of call. www.revolution-porsche.co.uk
