1997 Porsche Tubo S Restorative Correction detail

1997 Porsche Turbo S, in dire need of restorative correction to bring the car back to it's former state when new. As this Porsche commands a pretty penny still and it is gorgeous I had a mandate to fix it.

Heavy dirt under the bumper.

Wheel wells were as bad as it gets, a whole day alone would be needed to clean them. Test spot shows dramatic difference that it would be when completed.

Great car, but I really liked the transformation on those wheel wells. A judicious application of steam, no doubt. Well done.
