The vehicle in question was a Bentley Continental GT, which was in desperate need of work after a frankly hash job undertaken at the dealership. Our bespoke correction package was the only answer with 3-4 stages of machine polishing to get the finish to around 99% – as chasing a deep scratch to detriment the paintwork was not on the agenda on this beauty.
The Bentley also got attention to the interior with a full cleanse and protection, as well as the engine bay and rain repellent glass bolt-ons.

Looking very sorry for itself…
No flake pop and absolutely covered in road grime and buffer trails!
First port of call were the wheels.
Treated with a deironiser, non-acidic wheel brightener and later protected. The arches and tyres were also treated accordingly.
Next were the exhaust tips.
Wire wool, metal polish and protected.
Defects in the sun after washing…
Post-washing the vehicle it was rolled into the unit and clayed.
Before getting stuck in with the machine polishing I chose to take on the interior cleanse and protection.
Followed by the engine bay…

Horrific sanding marks – Bentley… you’d expect a prestigious dealer to be able to refinish their vehicles properly wouldn’t you?!

A vast improvement with the paint refinished to 99% correction – with the odd minor random deep scratch left significantly reduced. As stated above, chasing 1 mark to detriment the paint health was not on the agenda.
The paintwork was then protected with 2 applications of Valentines Concours Wax. The glasswork was treated accordingly with the windscreen receiving 3 applications of our rain repellent glass cleaner – and the rubbers/plastics were dressed.
The obligatory thumbs up…
50 hours in total went into this beast… it was hard graft but it was totally worth the time and effort!
Thank you for looking and reading as always…
