In late 2006 my passion for Porsche that had been kindled by owning a boxster lead me to search for a 911. In February 2007 I found a lovely, well used 964 carrera 2 coupe in GP white and embarked on a new adventure. This running report is about my 964 that would be used for high days, holidays and track days and be a 'project car'. It wouldn't matter if it spent time waiting for things to be fixed as it wouldn't be used as a daily driver.

Paintwork Restoration (May 07)

Although the car has had a full respray at some point in its past. It clearly didn't get washed and waxed very often. This resulted in an orange 'bloom' in the paintwork. Panel by panel, I removed the bloom with a gentle cutting fluid (GP white is a pretty hard paint so there's no worry of scratching it) and followed this up with an initial coat of wax. As you can see from the pics below, water is now beading nicely on the surface.
