Modesta BC-04 on a Maritime Blue Porsche 911 GT3
We were lucky enough to work on this very rare paint to sample Porsche 911 GT3. This Maritime Blue Porsche 911 GT3 we believe is 1 of 2 in North America. (would love to see the other 1 or others out there) We received this car in pretty bad shape in much need of a full paint correction. After a full paint correction we were able to bring out the color with Modesta BC-04 a glass coating that seems to make everything look like a hard candy shell. Take a look at our process. I hope you enjoy as much as we did.
