G tech is a permanent restorer however it's all in the prep and can go wrong but if all right before application it will be repellent and should not fade
See some you tube vids lots of Porsche have thevscuttle panel coated goes from grey with sun damage to black and wontbwash off

Yep, been there and done that, didn't work for me, left a streaky finish and wouldn't restore back to a smooth finish

So the final clean has started for the event.

Here's some shots:


Car has been snow foamed and then Autofinesse Ultraglaze applied.


All removed and all shiny! Black strips refitted


A bit orange peely, but love the shot and the car! Can't help myself!


Getting a bit dark, but all the trims etc done and the car is now ready for tomorrow!


Dusk shot, lighting from a flood light, paint looks glorious! Did anyone know that Boston Green has pearl in it? My car has a slight hue of purple in the right light.


Parked on the test track at work. More shots to come of it here, but they are on the SLR, so need to upload these and post in a separate post.

Here are the shots from the Enthusiasts day:

























The car got alot of interest on the day, no wins in the World post 1980 category, but wasn't expecting any. The winner was a modified Mk2 Golf with a supercharged VR6 under the bonnet, with the clean look engine bay. Was a worthy winner!

Next stop: Pistonheads Sunday Service @ BMW Farnborough
