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





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





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. (pun intended) --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. As always, send me an email if I can be helpful. larry@ammonyc.com

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





How to Remove Water Spots and Calcium/Lime Deposits
This is a clients daily driver that was left in a parking garage in NYC. It's common for the lime/calcium deposits to fall from the ceiling and cause issues on the paint if left untreated for long periods of time. Hope this gives you and idea of what "type of chemical" can help remove or loosen the contaminants. (FYI: I used a directional microphone instead of my normal mic because I wanted to pic up the "texture sound" of the calcium.) Thx for watching! -L

Car Auto Detailing Polish A DIY Wash Degrease Clay Bar Polishing Buffing Detail Video http://www.1OwnerCarGuy.com This is a complete detail video on this Mercedes Benz 300D W123 diesel. This shows start to finish what we do to cars and what they look like when we are done with them. First we start with a wash to get all the dirt and grime off. 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.
