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

Barn Find: Classic Porsche 912 Restoration -- /DRIVE CLEAN
Go to www.ammonyc.com to get the free Barn Find Assessment Checklist Today's story is about a true barn find. The car in question is a 1966 Porsche 912, which was last registered 23 years ago. We discovered the car thanks to our friend Roger Garbow, from Full Throttle Marketing. He had received a call about the car's discovery and immediately forwarded the info to us, here at Drive Clean. Address in hand, we turned our crews around and headed-off to a northern region of Connecticut where we unearthed and restored this classic car. Watch as we assess our find, remove years of accumulated filth and grime, and initiate the paint correction phase on this 912's "Irish Green" shell. www.youtube.com/ammonycdotcom www.facebook.com/ammonyc





Concours Secret Tricks: "At the show prep"
Here are a few tricks for prepping a car immediately BEFORE and DURING a concours or car show. (Assuming the paint resto has been done beforehand. Notice, I do not use any machines during the prep) The second half of the video discusses how to get the best pop from paint, wheels, and glass once you arrive at the show. Similar to "primping" a show-dog before they trot around the judges...(meaning the car looks great already...how can we squeeze the last bit beauty minutes before we are on stage) Hope this gives you some idea of how to stand out from the pack.

DeLorean #3352 restoration www.delorean.co.uk
This video is cut together from the footage I shot over the course of restoring #3352 from a barn-find in Ohio to a UK registered car with 2.5 Renault turbo engine. I stripped down and rebuilt so much that it's easier for me to list the things I didn't do: I didn't remove the doors, the glass, the left front fender or the wiring loom. The engine was assembled from a donor from a crashed Alpine GTA, but the ancillaries (turbo, chargecooler, engine management, Exhaust, intake manifold) were taken from an earlier conversion which had been abused and whose engine was totally worn out after approx 20,000 miles. This is why not everything is new and shiny.





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

Then we do degreasing the engine and wheel wells along with cleaning wheels and tires. If it needs it we then clay bar the car to get a nice smooth surface and then we go ahead and buff the car. Most cars I get require a 2 stage process and I only show the first stage in this video. I then show you what the car looks like when are done. It is a huge difference.

Paint Correction on 1958 Porsche Speedster - /DRIVE CLEAN
Paint correction is one of the most difficult—and most satisfying—detailing skills to master. In this episode, we show how to restore paint that's been damaged as a result of poor washing habits. The techniques we review can be performed by anyone with a dual-action polisher and microfiber-cutting pad (as microfiber pads are extremely safe, even for novice detailers). We also review scratches on the microscopic level and illustrate how abrasives work to remove or diminish paint scratches and imperfections. For a step-by-step PDF and product guide, visit us at AMMOnyc.com. If you have questions about this technique—or have other detailing questions—hit us up at Facebook.com/AMMOnyc.

Car Buffing DIY How To Buff A Car Restore a Cars Paint Detail Tips Part #2
Car Buffing DIY How To Buff A Car Restore a Cars Paint Detail Tips Part #2 http://www.1OwnerCarGuy.com How To Buff A Car & Detail Buffing and Wash Tips DIY Learn Quick Tips Tricks Restore Cars Paint http://www.1ownercarguy.com This is just the second part of the detail video on this very nice W123 Mercedes Benz 240D. This is mainly a video showing the steps of buffing and before and after pictures of this car. Depending on how old the car is and how the paint is buffing usually requires 2 or 3 stages. On this car it only needed 2 stages. The first one you use a wool pad and use a more gritty compound to really get into the paint. The second stage you use a foam pad with a more waxy compound and this really gives your paint an almost wet look and really brings out the color. I really enjoy buffing and it is fun to do. Especially when you can see what kind of a difference it makes.
