#GetCreativeWithPorsche: car detailing

In the third part of the lockdown series of Porsche masterclasses, Richard Tipper – car-detailer-turned-accidental-influencer – explains how to get your car looking as good as new.

It’s easy to tell when Richard Tipper has just been in a car: not only will it be as spotless as when it first left the factory, but every single switch and vent will be straightened and lined up, to the millimetre. It’s his fixation with the details that make Tipper the perfect professional for the next topic in the #GetCreativeWithPorsche lockdown series – car detailing.

Ever since he passed his driving test 31 years ago, Tipper has had something of an obsessive approach to cleaning cars, discovering and using a host of techniques and products to ensure they’re perfectly polished.

Alcantara is a man-made product that consists of lots of tiny ‘piles’, or fibres, of material. These piles get flattened by constant use, as well as the sweat and grease off the driver’s hands. What we need to do is remove that grease and fluff the pile back up.

It’s best to do the wheels before you wash the rest of the car, as they are often the dirtiest part of the whole vehicle. Always wash your car out of direct sunlight. If you look carefully at your car, you’ll probably see a series of scratches and swirls across the paintwork. What a lot of people don’t know is that most of these come from simply washing your car so it’s really important to avoid getting any grit or dirt on your wash mitt.
