    The owner of this 996TT just purchased it recently and wanted to see about getting the best out of the paint. I knew it had some serious potential and was very happy to perform a two step correction on it to get it back to the way it should be!

    Rupes LHR15
    Rupes Green Foam cutting pad
    Rupes Yellow Foam polishing pad
    Menzerna HC400
    Menzerna SF3800
    Menzerna Powerlock

    Let's jump right into the correction phase...

    Inside ready for the lighting inspection.

    This blurry spot here looks like it was maybe damage from the sun perhaps? It tightened up a bit.

    Clusters of scratches everywhere.

    Vent grill slats were quite faded as well.

    We will revisit this rear area later but there was quite a bit going on back here.

    Good difference on the spoiler:

    Not perfect by any means but a lot of improvement was made in this area:

    Almost done compounding!

    After compound but before polishing. Typical milky haze.
