A Clean Porsche Is a Happy Porsche

A clean car is a happy car, right?
So we broke out the quick detail for a speedy clean-up.

Soon, we promise, we’ll give it a real bath, including a proper detail.

We’ve been too busy driving—and well, occasionally sorting—our 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera to give it a proper cleaning, but it’s amazing what a bottle of Griot’s Garage’s quick detail and a micro-fiber towel can do. Our Porsche still wears its original Ruby Red Metallic paint, and we’d like to preserve it.

Soon, we promise, we’ll give it a real bath, including a proper detail. We also have a few exterior seals and stuff that we’d like to replace.

Im assuming you are referring to their speed shine? How does that stuff compare to Meguires quick detailer? Basically the same stuff? Or light years apart?

You know, I have never done a back-to-back comparo, but I have both in the garage.
