For those who don't know me, I've been a member since early 2004. My Rubi has been all over Colorado and Utah.
I had been considering letting go of my 1-owner 2004 with 63,000 miles. I haven't been driving it much because I travel alot for my work and when I'm home, my wife and I are usually headed somewhere on the highways. And my 997 is a bit more fun as a daily driver when I am home. But I know couldn't replace it if I sold it. So I just ended up with some nice photos.
As for what was done to get it photo ready.
Washed the jeep with a foam cannon and 2 buckets. Scrubbed the soft top with a stiff brush.
Washed the engine bay with simple green, a couple detailing brushes.
Applied Adams VRT to the rubber and plastic bits.
Clay barred all painted panels.
Wet sanded out some willow pinstripes with some 2500 and 3000 grit.
Compounded all the body panels with Meguiars Ultimate on a Meguairs DA microfiber compound pad.
Polished all the body panels with Rupes quartz on a Meguiars DA microfiber polishing pad.
Polished the rear soft top window with Meguiars Plastix with a wool pad.
Applied a ceramic coating to all the paint. I did this to my basalt black 997 in July and have been really happy with how it has held up.
Then washed the hard top and reinstalled it for winter, which is quickly approaching.
Dino would have been proud.
This is what shares space in the garage. They're quite the odd couple.
