How to Restore a Black 996 Porsche Track Car

This is a buddies car that I needed to restore after many years of track days and little to no detailing/cleaning. In this longer video, I discuss the different steps and products used to restore the paint to near perfection. I also introduce a few new products for "claying" your paint, and show the differences between a rotary polisher and DA polisher. (It is a bit on the long side, but its important to understand the thought process behind paint correction prior to working on a difficult job such as a Porsche 996 in black.) Hope this is helpful. Send me emails if you have additional questions. Thanks guys. -L

How to Wet Sand a Water Mark in Black Paint
This is a black E39 M5 that I restored in a full day. However, I decided to work the trunk last because it had water marks and "Bird Poo" stains burned in. (At this point in the job I was completely Exhausted but wanted to get it on camera as I've had a bunch of questions about how to remove this type of damage from viewers.) Also, I'm trying to prove a point that a microfiber cutting pad can remove 2500 grit...which is CRAZY! Normally, I would wet-sand the panel to 3000, 4000, and even 5000 before attempting to remove with a microfiber pad. At this point, I'm testing the cutting power of the pad to learn how strong this particular pad was. (Normally, a wool pad would be used for ease and speed in this case) Remember there are 3 levels of water stains. This was level 3 or the worst stage. Level 1 is when you leave the car outside in a quick sun shower (or sprinkler) and it can be wiped off with spray wax. Level 2 is when you need to use spray wax and a clay bar to remove the contaminants. Level 3 is when you have to level the paint (wet sand or compound) to remove the stain. Hope this helps! -L

Best Interior Detailing Tricks: Leather and Plastics
This is a filthy Honda Accord which is perfect to demonstrate 3 different approaches to leather cleaning. The 3 techniques are "options" that might work for whatever car (based on condition, age, material, etc) you are working with. These are simply techniques, options, or "suggestions" of how I would ASSESS the current condition, then TEST each approach on the material. Please use caution on any interior surface when your restoring its condition. (In this case, its modern leather) I hope this is a helpful discussion for everyone to see how leather and most plastics might be cleaned. (in this particularly bad scenario) Thanks for watching.

How to Wash a $2 Million Ferrari: Prep + Polish (Part 1)
This is a 1967 275 GTB/4. I absolutely love this special car! Based on emails and comments received during my last Ferrari restoration (288 GTO), everyone wanted to know the steps I take BEFORE I begin the compound/polish etc stage. What facts need to be understood prior to apply any product or machine... The information gathered before repairing the paint will dictate how you decide what products/abrasives (or not) to use to remove the minimal amount of surface (clear or single) to save the "working life" of the paint. Remember, pro-detailers get paid... not for how much they "remove", but for how much they "leave" intact. -L

HOW TO DRY YOUR CAR PROPERLY: AMMO Hydrate
AMMO Hydrate is one of my favorite products because it is designed to correct a major problem I was having on extremely rare painted surfaces. I discovered that improperly DRYING your car caused just as many scratches, as improperly washing your car. So I needed to figure out a better (ie...safer) way to remove water from the surface of delicate paint because traditional methods (squeegee, water blade, and old chamois) were effective at removing water, but introduced unnecessary scratches during use. (Using air is a great option, but most of my clients old cars to do allow safe usage, due to the paints extreme sensitivity) I solved my issue by creating a product that adds lubrication between the drying device and the surface of your paint....But this discovery only got me half the way there. I need to re-think the drying device as well. I wanted to a tool that not only picked up water,, but would pick up any "remaining dirt" left on the paint after a wash. My first choice was a traditional microfiber towel (at +/- 300 gsm). However, everyone knows, that dry microfiber towels don't pick up water naturally. It's somewhat difficult to soak up standing water effectively. So I hit a road block....then I thought about getting the MF towel wet or "damp"...and it worked perfectly! (why?, I'm not sure...but it does. When a MF towel is "damp" it seems to remove water from the surface of paint much more effectively) Now I have a soft and safe device to remove water (and "left over" dirt) from the surface of your paint, with the help of a hydrophobic lubricant that adds depth and shine to the surface you are drying. (This took forever to figure out, but was totally worth it. Hydrate is a game changer and the product I am most proud of because no one has ever thought of drying your car as a major part of paint care or "preventative" maintenance. As always, let me know if you have any questions. Larry@ammonyc.com Thanks for watching!

Polishers and Swirl Removal Tips -- /DRIVE CLEAN
Check out http://www.ammonyc.com for your PDF "Polisher & Swirl Removal Guide". Scratches and swirls are most commonly caused by improper car washing and care. When contaminants are not properly lifted away, they act as little grains of sandpaper. As you drag them across the paint, they leave behind very fine "love marks". This week on DRIVE CLEAN, we demonstrate how a dual action polisher, cutting pad, and compound or polish, can help you correct these fine scratches. Using the right combination of tools will allow you to re-level the paint and eliminate any visual defects; leaving a finish that is smooth as glass. http://www.youtube.com/ammonycdotcom http://www.facebook.com/ammonyc Instagram @AMMONYC Twitter @AMMO_NYC Tumblr @AMMONYC Google+ AMMO NYC
