Modesta BC-04 on a Maritime Blue Porsche 911 GT3

We were lucky enough to work on this very rare paint to sample Porsche 911 GT3.  This Maritime Blue Porsche 911 GT3 we believe is 1 of 2 in North America.  (would love to see the other 1 or others out there)  We received this car in pretty bad shape in much need of a full paint correction.  After a full paint correction we were able to bring out the color with Modesta BC-04 a glass coating that seems to make everything look like a hard candy shell.  Take a look at our process.  I hope you enjoy as much as we did.

We used Sonax Fallout Remover as it was it's a great decon product - it's a little slower than the rest but that was by design, since its slower we have more time to react to the products turning white which makes for unnecessary clean up or even polishing from the product staining trim pieces
