Porsche 911 Turbo 996 Premium Detail

Here's a quick look at a stunning 996 turbo we worked on last week. We performed a full correction on the paint to get it as close as possible to perfection. Here's a quick summary of the process used on this one-of-a-kind beauty.

After all the machine polishing was completed, we rolled the car outside into the South Carolina sun to get a good look at the paint in the sun for inspection. We washed the car here again to remove all polishing residue and to clean the wheels, jams and moldings.

GuruWax Premium carnauba wax was applied by hand using a premium microfiber applicator to get a nice consistent thin coat.

Question: What is the best way to dry your car?

We get this question a lot from customers. So we thought we would share this common answer.
I have a new car and don't want to scratch it. I heard that drying the car is the most common ways to scratch my paint (black!!!!). What's the best way to dry my car and keep it scratch free? Should I use microfiber towels?
You are correct! Drying is usually the number one culprit in scratching or swirling your car. I suggest two things to minimize your risk. The first think is to keep a good, high quality wax on the paint. I suggest GuruWax. This wax sheets water very well. After washing, most of the water will simply fall off if you sheet it without a nozzle (see this video for a demo).

The second thing you want to do is to use a blower of some kind (electric leaf blower, shop vac exhaust or compresses air) to blow off most of the water. This should remove 90%+ of the water is the car is waxed with a high quality wax like GuruWax.

Last, go over it with a high quality microfiber drying towel like the GuruFiber 360XL or the GuruFiber Waffle Weave towel. These super soft towels will get your car 100% dry and are ultra plush and soft and will protect from scratches and swirls.
