Default CryoDetail

I thought I had seen a thread that had some discussions on part cleaning options, including a laser cleaner/detail, but for the life of me I can not find it.

A friend of mine had his 968 Cryo-Detailed. I have no affiliation with this company. My friend, only a customer of CryoDetail, has no other affiliation with them them except being a customer.

Here are some results of the undercarriage:






Here is some more information about CryoDetail:

Seems interesting. I'd be concerned about hitting old, fragile rubber and plastic components with freezing cold CO2, though.

Many shops will use a brush a soapy water while the car is on the lift -- with good results, although those photos are outstanding.

I asked him for "before" pics. He said the CryDetail guys may have some and he would check with them and send them if they exist.

Thanks Gene......goggle search didn't turn up anything.....research says it takes a bunch of compressed air.....25 to 200 CFM.....the smallest road machinery air compressors for jackhammer use are 185 cfm.

CFM can be a misleading stat in this equation. Volume affects the numbers also. There is a chemical reaction involved here that is adding to the process of creating pressure and ultimately cleaning these parts. Dry ice, soda and probably vinegar are being used here (vinegar has amazing cleaning qualities in and of itself) which is adding pressure, or CFM, to compressed air.

I had this done on my 930 and the results were beyond amazing. The cost was $2500 but well worth it as I got all the money for that car when I sold it as a result. Of course that car is worth far more now so....!!

Looks like some of these companies rent their equipment and train to use.
