Porsche ‘911 Retro Works’ 993 GTR – 2-Stage Gloss Enhancement

1996 (2018 build) Porsche ‘911 Retro Works’ 993 GTR in Sports Classic Grey

Founded in 2012 by Rick Findlow, a self-confessed lover of all things Porsche, Retroworks recreate 911’s with classic style and individuality combined with Porsches finest evolution of air-cooled engineering, resulting in unrivalled performance, reliability, comfort and luxury. This example was built in 2018 using a 993 Carrera 2 as the base car. The uprated 3.8 Litre engine build was entrusted to Strasse, 2018 Porsche GB Racing champions and completed by Dave Sunderland. Dave was Porsche service manager at the first official Porsche Centre Yorkshire back in the 70’s. You would struggle to find another engineer with Dave’s air-cooled knowledge, expertise and attention to detail anywhere in the world.

Despite being a new build, the paint finish was not to the standard expected of such a refined car. Paint depth readings revealed inconsistent coverage, particularly on the wings and boot lid, while inspection with SCANGRIP lighting identified a number of paintwork defects including fine surface scratches, wash swirls and DA sanding marks from poor finishing.

The machine polishing stages were completed using a RUPES LHR 15ES and FLEX XFE 7-12 80 Roto Random Orbital Polisher for the curved areas with Koch-Chemie H8.02 on RUPES Green medium polishing pads. Following correction, the paintwork was refined to a high gloss using Menzerna Super Finish Plus 3500 on RUPES Yellow Fine Polishing Pads. Before the application of protective sealants, the paintwork and wheels were treated with Nanolex EX, a slow evaporation residue remover to eliminate any polish residues that if left in place would interfere with the bonding of the various coatings. To complete the protection, the external rubber seals were treated with Swissvax Seal Feed a natural product developed to nourish and keep rubber seals pliable for years. For the interior, the bespoke leather seats were treated with Colourlock Leather Protector and the fabric carpets with Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric Anti-Bacterial.
