When it comes to detailing Porsches there’s probably no one better known at this point then Larry Kosilla of AMMO NYC and it’s for good reason. Not only is he the cosmetic steward to some of the most incredible Porsches in the world, he freely shares his knowledge and tips on a regular basis. In this video Larry takes delivery of a 1965 Porsche 911, shipped from Sweden, on its way to being donated to New York’s Museum of Modern Art. As Larry explains, the 911’s paint is original, but it’s soft and there’s not a huge amount of it remaining. More importantly, the front hood has a bad case of rock acne that comes with 50 some odd years of road driving.
There are many ways to touch up stone or rock chips on your Porsche, but the method Larry details in this video, using a Loew Cornell Fine Paint Pen (size #1) provides a better finished product then most. The secret is in the amount of paint the pen dispenses with each tap. You have such fine control over the quantity of paint that you won’t end up with a bubble that you then need to go back over and work on to bring it down flush to the surrounding paint. Watch the video and you might just be inspired to try it yourself.
